A Roamler app without tasks is definitely one of the most annoying things that can happen to a Roamler. It might be that another Roamler has beaten you to the task, you could have a bad internet connection and at times it is due to a bug in the app.
Recently we have received messages from several Roamlers having troubles with performing the tasks or not seeing any tasks in the app. At RoamlerHQ we are working to fix those bugs. We work together with Roamlers who have reported a bug, to try to find the cause of the problem and fix it. With the help of Roamlers we have identified two different bugs in the app; Android Roamlers received a message in the app that a location could not be found when taking pictures and some iPhone Roamlers couldn’t see any tasks. We have been working on both issues.
Android app release
Today a new version of the Android app (1.2.2) will be available in the Play Store. We have solved most of the pressing issues in the app, the most important being that with the update the app doesn’t crash when turning your phone and finding the location when taking a photo has been improved. We also added, similar to the iPhone app, the function that tells you know how much time you have left to complete a task, after accepting it.
This new Android version has been thoroughly tested by bèta Roamlers who performed tasks and searched through the app for problems and bugs. We received a lot of feedback from them, allowing us to greatly improve the app. Thank you testers for helping us!
iPhone app release
Some Roamlers didn’t see any tasks with the newest version of the app. It took us quite some effort to figure out what exactly caused this problem; was it iOS 7, the new app, the system or a combination? We still haven’t figured out exactly what it is, but we are working hard to find and fix this bug as soon as possible. We expect a new iOS release soon, in which this problem will hopefully be solved. Until then, if you can’t see any tasks a possible solution could be to turn ‘notifications’ on in your settings.
We have now released a new update (1.7.1) which appears to have fixed this bug. If you have updated your device to version 1.7.1 of the iOS app, we would greatly appreciate any feedback you have.
We are grateful for the Roamlers who are helping us out and trying to find bugs. If you think you have found a bug please let us know. The sooner we identify bugs, the sooner we can fix them!
