Meter Readings 4.0 now available

January 6, 2014

mricon57 This is a MAJOR UPDATE, adapting the user interface to iOS 7. If you don’t like change, or you don’t like the iOS 7 interface in other apps, PLEASE DON’T UPGRADE(*) as there is no easy way to go back. For a preview of how the app looks, see the screenshots on the AppStore or here.

Also included in v4.0 are the following enhancements …

Moved the meter settings to a single Meters screen (at the top left). This screen has three functions: to jump to the selected meter on the graphs screen, to manage your meter list and to change your meter settings and rates.

For meters that don’t use rates, you can now set the meter currency to N/A. On the iPad this displays a single graph for usage only, rather than usage plus an empty cost graph.

If you have more than 9 meters, you can now scroll left/right between them all without having to jump to a specific meter first. This change also improves the memory usage of the app, to help prevent memory exhaustion crashes.

Added a setting to turn on/off the “next meter” question when adding readings (some people prefer to add readings one at a time).

Made the user guide more visible (from the settings icon on the main screen).

Other minor improvements.

Note that the minimum iOS version now supported is 5.0.

* if you have enabled AUTOMATIC DOWNLOADS for UPDATES in your iTunes & App Store settings, you might want to turn this off!
