Not entirely my choice but I’ll be removing support for iOS6 from all apps by the new year. Compatibility will start from iOS7.
Developing and testing for iOS6 using Xcode is no longer supported by Apple as standard. Of course, with fiddling there are ways to make it work but I’d rather spend time adding new features than having a hair-pulling battle with Xcode. Just to let you know.
• iOS7 upgrades for all apps are on the way (it’s a biggy) • Detailed, online manuals for all apps are coming soon. • Much to my wife’s dismay, the to do list for new features is still as long as ever.
As always, your reviews and emails keep me in front of the Mac and continually updating the apps. Thanks everyone.
Now finishing up on the latest update with the main focus being on Quizlet giving better searching of usernames, classes and sets but more importantly, full access to your Quizlet account including the ability to favourite any deck for later study.
v1.5 has just been uploaded for review ready for sale next week. A quick lowdown: ✩ Quizlet support - search millions of decks on www.quizlet.com ✩ Touch the colour piles on the study screen to show their contents ✩ SRS interval adjustment in settings (advanced users only!) ✩ Minor changes
Due to changes in the Flashcard Exchange API, "tags" are no longer available when searching.
The next update of “StickyStudy Flash!” will connect you to the gargantuan flashcard servers at Quizet giving you access to millions of crowd-sourced decks from around the world via a silky smooth interface.
From the next update (for all apps) the Dropbox directory will change to “\Apps\StickyStudy..”
What this means is that your old data (in Dropbox) will be unavailable for “Restore” (in the app) unless you move the old decks into “\Apps\StickyStudy..” If you’re not concerned with losing old backups, just backup your decks after the update, continue as normal and have a great day.
StickyStudy now uses sandboxing instead of root access giving increased privacy and security.
My tireless, constant and bad-for-my-health slaving over Xcode has produced another feature worthy of an update - an improved study algorithm.
The algorithm is now a mixture of timed and frequency based SRS study giving the best of both worlds by spreading your study over a longer period of time without overloading you when you miss a couple of sessions.
This screenshot from the iPad 3 showing over 2000 kanji (Joyo kanji) has so many pixels that it’s too big to display on a full HD monitor! If you don’t mind making your display look tiny, click on the graphic below and be in awe..
StickyStudy makes heavy use of system fonts so it already looks silky smooth on the new iPad’s retina display without any updating.
(The Chinese and Flash! versions look similarly awesome.)
A host of little fixes and a few additions for the next update. Available next week. Some highlights:
☆ “Age” of cards now measured in minutes ☆ Can continue studying a mastered deck ☆ Fixed font problem for russian text ☆ Sort -> Rand can now be pressed when selected ☆ Can now delete stickies in edit view ☆ “Safe start” option in device settings if the app can’t open the last file ☆ Bug fixes
There have been some reports of Flash! crashing after downloading certain decks. To prevent annoying any more users, I’ve taken the app down from the stores until I can fix the problem. Hopefully ready by next week.
