Version History

Here you can get information about what changed in which version. If this is not enough for you, feel free to access the Git commits!

  • handle the case when the user revokes the app's access to the shared storage directory in Android's system settings: the user is asked again when the directory access is needed again
  • support incoming intent action "org.zephyrsoft.trackworktime.StatusRequest" for fetching current status: is the user clocked in, and if so, with which task and how much time remains for today?
    • incoming intent has to have the extra "reply_intent" (this action will be used for the broadcast of the status data)
    • outgoing intent has the extras status ("clocked-in" or "clocked-out"), minutes-remaining, current-task-name, current-task-id (the latter two only if currently clocked in)
    • more information on the app's homepage
  • revert notification icon to briefcase shape (has become a circle accidentally because the launcher icon which was used for both launcher and notification has a round shape now)
  • major overhaul of data storage mechanism: external storage permission is not needed anymore, instead Android's Storage Access Framework is used
    • this requires the user to explicitly select a directory where TWT's data should be stored (sorry for the dialog after the update)
    • if the user doesn't want to select a directory, the app is still usable, but any functionality accessing the storage re-triggers the dialog asking for a directory
    • the log files stay in the app's private storage area and can be exported using a new menu item (this was contributed by Peter Mandeljc)
    • safety note: the daily automatic backups can only be created if a directory is allowed for the app - if not, no automatic backups will be made
  • make report screen remember user selections (contributed by Peter Mandeljc)
  • add in-app preview for generated reports (contributed by Peter Mandeljc)
  • mark days with different target time kinds (so apparently wrong calculations can be cleared up easier)
    • green = regular non-working days (this means days which are not marked as working days in the options)
    • light blue / turquoise = holiday / vacation / manually marked non-working days
    • orange = changed target time
  • fix the remaining work time displayed in the notification
  • enable navigation inside the app using the "back" arrow in the top bar (but the device's "back" button still works, too)
  • add a new round icon and some more icons in the app's menu
  • make clock-in by third-party apps use default task if none was explicitly selected (contributed by Peter Mandeljc)
  • add icons on week navigation buttons (contributed by Peter Mandeljc)
  • fix handling of negative initial flexi time (negative amounts were counted as positive)
  • fix backup/restore mechanism for the case when no text was given for targets
  • fix crash when using GadgetBridge instead of orginal Pebble app
  • fix some bugs which were reported by anonymous users using the app's built-in mechanism (thank you, it helps if you report problems!)
  • fix crash when deleting many events at once
  • fix crash when a backup was imported which has been created by version 1.0.x of the app
  • fix crash in combination with the widget (contributed by dliw)
  • fix calculation with multiple time zones (contributed by dliw)
  • add section to privacy policy explicitly describing the usage of location data
  • internal optimizations
  • add permission ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION which is required by Android 10+ for automatic clock-in by Wi-Fi (the app's functionality is unchanged: it doesn't access fine-grained location data - but the names of the visible Wi-Fi networks can't be fetched without this permission)
  • include the text of the privacy policy directly into the app
  • better description of & asking for necessary permissions (add explanation dialog before permissions are requested)
  • rename "About" menu item to "About / Help"
  • update about / help text (add direct link to privacy policy)
  • rebuild permission management for Android 10 and newer
  • increase logging in case of errors
  • update help text (add section about backup options)
  • fix crash on resume when app was previously paused with event list open
  • fix crash when persistent notification could not determine clock-out time
  • update build system
  • fix writing files (e.g. logs or backups) under Android 11
  • update help text
  • fix crash when "remove restrictions" was used on newer Android versions
  • fix time assignment in reports (contributed by dliw)
  • migrate build system from Travis-CI to Github Actions
  • fix main table which didn't display any data when flexi time was disabled (contributed by dliw)
  • fix reports which didn't work due to automated code alteration (contributed by dliw)
  • FLEX event type replaced by per-day target values (adjustable by tapping on the dates) => database scheme change (contributed by dliw)
  • code base cleaned up, removed deprecated functions, added view binding, replaced date4j by ThreeTenABP, migrated to AndroidX (contributed by dliw)
  • added navigation drawer on the left side (contributed by dliw)
  • restored possible top buttons can be activated by new preference, default off (contributed by dliw)

  • fixed automatic daily backup so it is also executed when the app is not opened for a longer time
  • updated inline help & about page
  • internal improvements
  • dependency updates
  • new event type FLEX to change/specify the expected working time on a daily basis (contributed by Dirk Braunschweiger)
  • week swiping instead of old-fashioned buttons for navigation in time (contributed by Peter Rosenberg)
  • enhanced, more reliable WiFi based tracking (contributed by Peter Rosenberg)
  • fix notification sound going off periodically (contributed by Peter Rosenberg)
  • restructured report screen (contributed by Peter Rosenberg)

  • dependency updates
  • fix crash on permission request in some circumstances
  • fix crash on sending logs (Android 8+)
  • fix problem setting the week's total (sum can't be negative)
  • repair the previously forgotten reports for Android Nougat and newer (sorry!)
  • fix automatic clock-in and clock-out via location and WiFi on Android Oreo and newer - there is a persistent notification now, but it can be disabled if you find it annoying: swipe it to the right and hold it there shortly, then tap on the cog symbol and disable it
  • fix a shortcoming of a library used by TWT for date and time calculations
  • automatic backup (on device) every 24 hours - so users still have a copy of their data even if the app does not start properly
  • report for all data (not just the current or the last week/month/year - feature request)
  • repair reports for Android Nougat and newer (Google's change in Android required a change in the app)
  • transmit crash reports via secure connection to the developer (if the user accepts it, nothing is sent automatically)
  • fix a bug reported by Vili Seppänen (related to being clocked in over midnight)
  • graphically improved look (contibuted by Peter Rosenberg)

  • new option to only generate events when the first tracking method clocks in and when the last tracking method clocks out (so enabling more than one automatic tracking method makes sense)
  • fix background service crashes in case a user has deleted all tasks
  • changed list item layout of spinners (contributed by Peter Rosenberg)
  • replaced spinner for type with radio buttons in event edit dialog (contributed by Peter Rosenberg)

  • added reporting module for: all events, times per task, times per task (subdivided per week), times per task (subdivided per month)
  • split the one "clock in / clock out" button into two for more intuitive handling
  • added ability to preselect a default task in main screen and event editor

  • fixed displaying times for simple configurations (without flexi time)
  • fixed a bug in the event editor
  • third-party apps like Llama or Tasker can now trigger clock-in and clock-out events in TWT (see main page to find out how it works)

  • new tracking method: automatically clock in when a specified wi-fi network is available - contributed by Christoph Loewe
  • new icons - contributed by Anja Eberhardt
  • new option: block location-based events before/after already existing events (to prevent repeated events when traveling from or to work)
  • minor bug fixes
  • added the possibility to use the current device position as settings for the work place location
  • be more fault-tolerant with user input
  • execute logical checks on app start and disable illegal option sections (so there are no option constellations are left that went through unchecked before)
  • allow also periods as separator (and not only colons) in time-valued options
  • don't vibrate on location-based events when the phone is muted
  • check options for logical inconsistencies (like auto-pause end is before auto-pause start)
  • added an about dialog
  • correct the initial start activity when coming from the home screen or from the notification: directly open the main activity and skip e.g. the event list which may have been still open
  • fixed a crash when the auto-pause feature was enabled, but no start and end times were provided
  • a problem in the broadcast receiver should not cause the whole application to crash
