ActionComplete 2.0 Gets Attention at Androinica

Andrew Kameka of Androinica posted an article about ActionComplete 2.0.

Here's an excerpt:

ActionComplete is a productivity app geared towards users who need more than a simple to-do list. As we mentioned in our written and video review of ActionComplete months ago, the app allows users to group their tasks or projects into manageable actions. It allows for waits, actions that need to be taken by others, and pending, long-term projects that are still in the conceptual stage.

AC 1.1.1 Patch Release is Out

This release resolves minor issues with reminders as well as fixes application crash when location awareness is enabled in the application but no location providers are enabled on the phone.

It's safe to apply the upgrade on top of the existing installation, i.e. you do not have to uninstall the application first.

I recommend you to upgrade to release 1.1.1 from any previous version of ActionComplete you might have on your phone.

As usual, please perform a backup just before and immediately after the upgrade - just in case.

ActionComplete 1.1.0 Released, Features Reminders

ActionComplete 1.1.0 is out. The focus of this release is reminders and related functionality.

Now you can set a reminder for any ActionComplete item (action, wait, project, or pending project). The reminder can be set either from a details screen or from a new/edit form.

The main list view now shows an alarm clock icon near every item that has a reminder set on it. If you tap the alarm clock icon, the reminder date and time is displayed in the lower part of the screen for a short time.

Most urgent first and Least urgent first sort options are added to all the lists, Most urgent first being made the default sort option. These sort options are based on reminder dates and times.

When a reminder time is approached, a "You've got things to do" message appears in the notification bar of the phone for a short time and the phone emits three short buzzes. You can swipe the notification bar open and tap on the AC notification item to get to ActionComplete reminder management screen.

The reminder management screen accessible from the notification area allows you to "snooze" (reschedule) past reminders or "dismiss" (delete) them by choosing "Don't remind again" option. Tapping an item name in the reminder management screen displays the details of the item.

The upgrade preserves all the user data and should be considered safe. For further protection please backup all your data just before and immediately after the upgrade.
