I have some new updates which I didn’t post online yet. First of all, the new 2.1+ versions got Power Schedule users back. Yes, the 2.0 version was quite a disaster, as it was quite complicated to use. Also the point system was not sufficiently explained. Here’s the chart from Google Play:
Anyhow, I’m glad things are getting back on track.
Also, the new 2.1.2 version is translated to Slovak, French and Romanian (more languages to come). By the way, if you know Japanese, Italian or Spanish and want to help me out with the translation, drop me a message.
Today I just uploaded the “point free” Power Schedule version to Amazon Appstore and SlideME alternative Android markets. Yes, it seems they are more open to developers, as they allow me to sell apps there. Power Schedule “unlimited events” edition costs just 0.99$. If you don’t like the point system, you can get the paid version. No ads, no points – just events. As many as you like 🙂
It will take a few days until the Amazon and SlideME staff review and approve the app (hopefully :)). I will post the purchasing links then.
Also, stay tuned for an income report update. This time, from AdMob, Leadbolt and Tapjoy.
I’m happy to say Power Schedule has more than 10000 active users. That’s a small town using it. I know it’s nothing comparable to > millions other apps have, but it’s a great milestone for me. It even motivates me to continue working on it (I know, I’ve bene quite lazy lately) 🙂
Thank you all.
I was finally able to publish the bugfix version to the Market (after a number of page refreshes, timeouts and 404 errors). I fixed some small issues which the users complained about. I also added a “Share…” button. If you find Power Schedule useful, pleas share it with your friends (via Facebook, Twitter, email etc.). It doesn’t take much time on your side, it would just motivate me to make it better and better. I hope it’s not too much to ask. Thank you 🙂
I updated Power Schedule to 1.3. I added “Data Connection” schedule as a new feature, and also changed a few texts (for example I renamed “Phone” to “Telephony” – some people thought turning “Phone” off would actually power off your device completely… when I actually meant just the “phone” (GSM /CDMA) part of your Android device). Anyhow, I hope “Telephony” removes some of that confusion.
Data schedule will now let you disable sync during night, for example (if you want to keep your WiFi off and Telephony on, but don’t want to get new e-mails, for example). Of course, it’s up to you to define your schedule.
I am also working on a major overhaul of the UI – making it more… Android-esque? I am also trying to add a few more options for “power users”, who are not satisfied with the standard settings. So update your version and stay tuned for new updates.
So, to celebrate the new monocube.com, I published my first Android app: Power Schedule.
It’s a simple utility which allow setting an on/off schedule for your WiFi and/or Phone. Here’s the link to it, in the Android Web Market. Also the direct Android Market link. For those who have Barcode Scanner installed, I prepared a QR code:
