Volunteers to test a NEW chart feature?

Post by Time Nomad » Thu Feb 15, 2018 6:25 pm

If you’ve got an iPhone/iPad, here’s a challenge if you’re interested…

I’ve made an iOS widget that shows the current chart on the home screen.

It looks like this… when works:

Motivation behind this was that I don’t want to open an app each time just to check the chart. Instead, simply left-swipe the screen and here you go, the chart is shown, don’t even need to unlock the device.

Easier said than done — the widgets have severe memory limits and don’t allow for rich content. But it looks like I am finally getting there, the latest widget version seems to work on most devices! Yet I need a few more people to test — and here you can help me — and get the widget for your device!

What you have to do:
1. get the app (search for “time nomad” on the App Store https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/time-no ... 41332?mt=8, the app is free
2. open the app, close it
3. swipe left all the way to the Notification Centre and use “edit” at the bottom to activate the widget
4. check the widget displays content for both moon phase and current chart (tap “show more”)

Here is a visual of widget activation:

Let me know if any problems on your device. Especially if you have a larger “+” size screen like iPhone 6+ ,7+ ,8+ or iPhone X.

Otherwise, if it works, just enjoy. I find it super useful.

T.Nomad - looks good but will it remain free? We don't permit advertising on this site, what we prefer is for you to expand and add more information on this program. Random posts don't get much traction without more commentary.

Hi Noel

Yes, Time Nomad has been free for last 3 years and will remain free. First of all, it's a hobby project.
Occasionally there will be some optional paid add-ons... guess why? The users keep asking for a way to donate, and they want a small feature in return.
Otherwise it's a free app for all.

sounds like you have a few ideas that will come together later. I noticed on your screen capture, you must be an Aussie?
