What’s New in FiveTimer 1.2

(cool, the title rhymes) So there’s a lot less that I had hoped would be in this version as described in this post, but significant enough to push a version+0.1 release. Here goes:

  • New icon – yeah the old one was not so great, I think this one is at least a little better.
  • Support for iOS 6 – iOS 6 changed a lot of things under the hood, even without some of the added features this was very important.
  • New screen resolutions, iPad compatible – I never got complaints or requests for this but it’s been something I’ve been wanting to do.
  • New Feature: Minimal Mode – I’m very excited about this. The idea behind this mode is that you should only focus on the current solve on hand, there have been countless times where I have the intention of doing an average but because I get a bad start I just keep deleting and resetting. Now you can hide the controls and just do solves, if you mess up or are curious what your average is, you can always bring the controls back up.
  • Support dropped for iOS 3.2 – i.e. dropped support for 1st generation iPod touches and iPhones.
  • Bug Fixes – The standard deviation that was written in emails was for the entire session not that set of times. The start or stop button would not properly bind on first install. iOS6 bug fixes, it just really changed things.

The best part is FiveTimer is still just 99¢ in the iOS App Store. I have plenty of ideas for 1.3, including one more mode, 15 second countdown, and a few more. As always if there’s a feature you want to see send me a message here. Enjoy.
