We’ve just released pressureNET 2.1 which has improvements that increase the app’s performance. Specifically, here’s the short changelog for this update:
- New Light UI (using Holo Light instead of Holo)
- Fixed battery drain issue on Android 4.2 (Nexus 4, Galaxy Nexus)
- Improved graph loading (cleaning and indexing data on the server)
- Adding new Auto-Submit options (1 minute and 5 minute intervals are now available. Default is still 10 minutes)
We’ve also moved our source code to GitHub (away from our Subversion repository on cumulonimbus.ca). There are three new repositories: the first is the pressureNET application itself, the second is the main pressureNET server and the last is our new Data Visualization tool. The tool is not yet released to a public website since it’s not ready yet. It will be ready later this week or early next week. We’ll let you know!
To give you a hint of what’s coming, have a look at this recent screenshot of the tool in development.
Of course, if you have a new Android phone, we encourage you to download pressureNET and contribute to our database! We also encourage you to submit bug reports, help us with the code and together we’ll do our best to improve short-term weather prediction while adding to the global collection of weather data.
