Welcome to another week, and another progress report. I have two things to share this week.
First, version 2.260 has been submitted. This is an interesting release because there have been no new bug or crash reports, and all known issues have been resolved as of 2.250. I think I’ll celebrate with some orange juice! So, what does 2.260 have if not bug fixes? It has a new feature, one that should be welcomed to those of you who use Penzu (http://www.penzu.com
). Auteureist can now post to Penzu journals via email. This, however, requires that you have a Penzu Pro account. You need to set up your Penzu Post email in the Auteureist: settings:
You can then post using the action button on the writing screen. This is what it looks like on Penzu:
Note as you can see in the above post (the keyboard photo), you can also attach photos and other Auteureist™ research items.
The other change in 2.260 is that posting is faster (much faster for journal entries).
That’s it for 2.260.
On to Auteureist™ 3.00. In the past few posts here I’ve previewed some new screens designs. This post will be no different.
In the last post, I showed an early version of the text editing screen with rich text, page flipping, etc. This time, I’m previewing the journal entry screen.
This is the basic screen:
Tapping the (+) button, creates a new journal entry with all of the rich text capabilities.
In the current version, I have a “life stream” feature that is part of the Journal mode. In version 3.+ this will be come a “life” and a real “stream”.
The heart button gets you to “Life”.
Note, the new version allows you to quickly check into Foursquare (a new feature). The “Life” screen allows you to track where you are and how you’re feeling. This is attached to your journal entries and starting with 3.0, can be independent of entries for those of you who want to keep track of such things, without having to write a full journal entry. The other enhancement over the current version, is that I’ve broken the “feeling slider” into three separate sliders, which provides you with a better breakdown of how you’re feeling. And as in the current version, you don’t have to use the “life” view to track all of this stuff if you don’t want to. But, if you like keeping track of such things, you have more flexibility now.
That’s enough for this update. Next time I should preview the new “stream” view, which will let you see your writing in a different way.
