Please note the following issues:
We will be addressing these issues by migrating the site to newer/different technology in October/November time frame. Thanks for your patience.
Well - simply navigating the publishing to Google Play Store process took a full 3 days. GACK!
According to my Play Store dashboard, our first Birder's Diary Android App is now Pending Publication!!!
Supposedly this means that Google/Android-Police are testing and confirming that the app is what it says it is, not dangerous and will be published when this step is accomplished.
A bit more info. It could be days - if, If, IFFFF I did everything correctly. What a process.
Yes. Update. Google testing found a couple minor compatibility issues that I am working to resolve. In addition, I somehow managed to break the build in Android Studio, so testing and updates are on hold until I figure that out. With Thanksgiving and all, things are progressing slowly this weekend. But I will update here when it is available on the Google Play Store for sure.
Ok - for all those watching this holiday weekend. Beta 1.1 just uploaded to the Google Play Store.
This process is simply mind-boggling. So many moving parts it simply stupefies me. If I survive it, and an actual release finally makes it to the Play Store, I may need a week off. Development is a piece of cake compared to configuring, building, releasing and passing all of Google's test and security requirements. I can see why it can literally take an entire engineering team to get this done. I needa margarita!!!
Please tell me what mobile phone you have and want version of Android you are running.
Outside of that, please uninstall the app from your phone and reinstall and test.
Please let me know back here.
Thanks and sorry for the issue.
Thanks for the info. I have an S9 and running Android 9. I wonder if that is the difference.
Let me know how uninstall, reinstall works please.
Thanks Dennis. Sorry about this. I am working on this. The mobile space is so much more complex than just Windows. So many different configurations and levels of software.
I will work on getting a solution to this in the next couple days.
In the meantime, please uninstall and reinstall and test. Let me know.
Thanks and I apologize for this issue.
Ok - I have just released Build B1.14 to the Google Play Store. It should auto-upload on your phones overnight.
When you get a chance, please test this problem and let me know.
Hi - has anyone had a chance to test B1.14 for these issues?
Let me know.
