Along with this new version, a Bug Trackr Premium subscription is now available for $0.99US/month or $8.49US/yearly (priced comparably in other countries). The yearly subscription offers a 28% savings over the monthly price.

I hope this update empowers you to be more productive than ever! -WD


What's New in Bug Trackr 3.0.2

Bug Trackr 3.0.2 is now available on the App Store. While this update includes some important bug fixes, it also includes a new sync progress bar.

Located in settings, the sync status bar will appear while a sync session is in progress. It's a small addition but handy when you want to know what's happening behind the scenes.

(Speaking of behind the scenes, this version includes a few more classes rewritten in Swift. While Bug Trackr was already about 10% Swift code, new features and areas of the app that require significant change will be written entirely in Swift.)

What's New in Bug Trackr 3

Bug Trackr 3 is now available on the App Store!

Version 3 is a major milestone for Bug Trackr with great new features like sync, Dark Mode, a modern UI, support for iOS 10 and the latest devices, a new icon, widget, and more.

Sync is the most requested feature to date and it’s finally available for all Bug Trackr users! Bug reports and apps are synced between your devices via iCloud. There is no setup to do, it works out of the box. Simply sign into iCloud and enable iCloud Drive on your devices.

This update centres around consistency. Every aspect of the UI was rebuilt from the ground up. But it’s more than the way it looks; text throughout the app now responds to user font preferences, iPhone 6 and 7 Plus users can enjoy using the app in landscape split view mode, and Quick Actions on iPhones with 3D touch allows users to jump right into the content that matters most. Bug Trackr 3 is a modern app built for iOS 10 both on the surface and under the hood. It takes advantage of the latest Apple technologies to ensure it’s fast and reliable.

Another popular feature request is Dark Mode. With Dark Mode enabled, the entire interface dynamically changes to a darker themed UI that’s easy on the eyes and great when working at night or in darker environments. It’s available exclusively for Bug Trackr Premium subscribers.

Bug Trackr 3 greatly improves the app import process. Now, for iOS and macOS apps, after selecting an app platform and entering an app name, Bug Trackr will search the App Store for matches as you type. Also improved is the new Bug Report Screenshot Viewer that displays the size and dimensions of your screenshots. Lastly, bug report and app info layouts have been redesigned to better focus on their content.

Bug Trackr 3 is ad-supported and introduces the Premium Subscription. With a subscription to Bug Trackr Premium, you’ll have access to Dark Mode and you won’t see any ads. Subscribers will also be directly funding future development of the app. Users who have purchased the Bug Trackr Pro in-app purchase in previous version can enjoy complimentary access to all premium features until December 31, 2017.

I hope you’ll enjoy Bug Trackr 3 as much as I do. I’d like to thank all of our beta testers for their hard work, really appreciate it!

Bug Trackr 2.1 with Tip Jar

Bug Trackr 2.1 shipped recently and with it comes a very different revenue model.

Previous to this version, Bug Trackr was free with an in-app purchase to unlock premium content known as the "Pro Upgrade". The reason for this was to let customers download and try the app before purchasing it. Sales were higher than if I charged the same amount upfront for the app but I felt I could do better.

iSource 2.5.2 and submitting bug fixes

iSource MLA and APA 2.5.2 will be available on the App Store next week and include a few fixes for issues that appeared with the release of iOS 8.1.

iOS 8.1 introduced an issue where the text entry sheet wouldn't display properly, effectively leaving you with a modal view you couldn't dismiss. It's fixed in this update.

I'd like to take a moment and re-affirm the importance of letting an app's developer know when you've run into a bug in their app. Apps, like children, can misbehave. I always want to hear from you if you've run into an issue so I can get it fixed as soon as possible. iSource, Bug Trackr, Academy Coins, and Screenshot++ all include a feedback form in the About page.

If you notice any issues in iSource 2.5.2, let me know!

PS, stay tuned for some big iSource news in the coming weeks. 

Psst, iSource 3 is coming in 2015!


Bug Trackr 2.0 Public Beta

Update: The beta period has ended and version 2.0 is on the App Store now. Thank you to everyone who participated, much appreciated!

I'm rounding out development on Bug Trackr 2.0 and thanks to Apple's new TestFlight service, I'm accepting 1000 helpful iOS 8 users to try out the new version.

Bug Trackr 2 adds a new Today Widget, Notes and Screenshots in each bug report, and support for iO8, iPhone 6, and iPhone 6 plus. 

If you'd like to sign up for the beta, head over to the Bug Trackr Home Page.

Please note the beta requires an iOS device running iOS 8 and later. Be sure to backup your device before installing the beta as you may have to re-install the app when the final version is released.

Thank you!
