Meter Readings 2.5.1 now available

November 9, 2010

By popular request, I have put back the ability to view readings by their daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly or yearly equivalents. Sorry for removing this in version 2.5.

While doing the above, I have moved the way you select your “bill” readings – this is now on the add/edit reading screen as a switch (ON/OFF). To view usage and costs between bills, you now access this from the same place as your last and next bill (icon at the bottom left of the readings screen).

Also moved the meter editing functionality (add, remove, rename, reorder) to the settings screen – just select the Edit button. The old Meters screen is now just a quick way to jump to a specific meter, rather than scrolling/swiping left and right.

Fixed a couple of bugs in passing.

    Hi, this is a great app, but i changed from iphone to samsung galaxy tab with android, and i cant use it anymore. Is there a chance to have it with android?

      Hi Chris, I have no plans to develop an Android version. Sorry.

    This is the best of all meter programs I have tried- but it fails in it’s calculation when using analog / dial meters (or either I’m ignorant on the proper use)- analog meters roll over ever so often, resetting themselves instead of continuously counting numbers- the program calculates the difference from one reading to the next in order to measure data; but once a dial has returned to zero, it does not take into account that the difference should subtracted from the meters total capacity then any additional use beyond zero added back- perhaps there is a setting I’m missing? Thanks for your support.

      Hi Steven, the app does handle meters that wrap (i.e. go back to 0), however it has to know what the maximum value is for this to work. This is set by the Format option in the meter setting, specifically the number of digits before the decimal point on your meter. By default this is 5, but can be changed to 4 or 6. If you have a reading of 99999 and your next reading is 00001, the app will correctly calculate that your usage for that period is 2.
