Changelog

Planetary Times

07.2018 (In Development)

  • Dedicated to attribute balances.
  • Added new attribute sections: "Primal Roles", "Command Mechanisms", "Tolerance Mechanisms", "Saturation".
  • Changed names and positions of some attribute sections:
    • Mind - Body - Spirit -> Primal Faculties
    • Modality -> Movement Mechanisms
    • Reasoning -> Reasoning Mechanisms
  • Got rid of the definitive article "the" in tarot names to fit more text. If you were manually tracking any, you need to enable tracking again on each.

06.2018 (Latest Release)

  • Dedicated to bug fixes.
  • Added hourly compatibility display (between default profile and other profiles) to profile selection for the selected date/time and location.
    • This feature assumes viewed person and default user are at the same (selected) place or nearby at the selected time. This limitation will later be lifted to enable phone/messaging compatibility when support for "current whereabouts" (custom/fixed location) field for each profile entry is added. Same is true for congruence/mood icon below profile pictures.
  • Added new attributes section: "Management Mechanisms".
  • Limited DOZE bypass from "always notify" type notifications to "always notify hourly changes" (figured there is no need for non-auditory ones to update when device is not in use).
  • From now on clicking on an attribute notification will temporarily reset fingerprint settings (to live-personalization) prior to display.
  • Slightly adjusted elements section calculation and its derivatives.
  • Implemented consent dialog to be shown to EU users as required by the GDPR. For those who do not know, this is just a consent given to view personalized ads based on your interests. It is nothing new. If you change your mind later on and want to revoke consent afterwards, you need to either buy ad removal or uninstall the app, as app won't work otherwise.
  • Removed an-ad-a-day feature (due to low ad inventory).
  • Changed default hijri calculation method to prediction for conformity with other sources (to prevent confusion).
  • Various adjustments.

06.2018.2 follow-up fixes profile compatibility and attribute calculation bugs.

05.2018

  • Improved overall app responsiveness
  • Fixed a timezone inaccuracy when viewing a remote location's daily schedule on real-time
  • Implemented automatic DOZE mode bypass when quiet hours are not-in-effect/disabled for:
    • "Always notify" type notifications
    • Planetary alerts set by the user
    • Notice: You may still need to whitelist the app and exempt it from battery saving for highest precision and certainty. Have a look at Remarks & Troubleshooting on how to do that. You could also do the reverse if you wanted to. So if your device is remaining idle (with no incoming calls/messages/emails) regularly for hours, disable "always notify" notifications for increased battery life.
  • Set priority, category and visibility values for all notification types, so system can arrange them accordingly
  • Added new attributes section: "Abstraction - Specification"
  • Fixed a slight inaccuracy with moon age/illumination
  • Sorted out remaining bugs from previous version
  • Various fixes & improvements

Known Bug: There seems to be a calculation problem at the very end of DST time.

Known Bug: Swiping up/down on date selection button or using the time machine feature causes UTC time to display (instead of local time), but calculation carries out correctly.

Known Bug: Appearently recent changes messed up moon age calculation again by adding GMT offset twice.

04.2018

  • From now on app state is preserved across sessions (if you would like the old behavior back, uncheck it in app settings; opening the app by clicking on a notification also resets time/date and user to defaults temporarily)
  • Added arrow buttons for moving on to the next/previous date/user immediately (as an alternative to swiping)
  • Fixed an inaccuracy with moon phase/sign due to timezone difference
  • Fixed an issue causing app data occasionally getting deleted on some devices (if it still happens please report)
  • Fixed an issue causing an-ad-a-day feature to malfunction
  • Decreased penalty for having opposite Jungian base qualities
  • Various fixes & improvements

Known Bug: Occasional display of wrong planetary schedule. Quick fix before update is to either select date as "now" again as you enter app or disable "retain app state" in app settings.

03.2018

  • Added four-way swipe capability to hour/date and user configuration buttons. Swipe on them for switching to next and previous day/hour/user immediately
  • Added phone contacts as suggestions to profile creation
  • Added A-Z fast scroll to profile selection
  • Further increased the significance of gender in attribute calculations
  • Slightly lowered automatic attribute notification threshold
  • Faster profile suggestions when typing a new profile name
  • Fixed grouping of notifications
  • Various fixes & improvements

02.2018

  • Revamped "User Selection Window" to show profile picture, congruence value and biorhythms data for each user. This change has the following implications:
    • READ_CONTACTS permission is now required for querying profile picture from phone contacts by profile name (automatic)
    • Biorhythms display has been removed from the app header to save space
    • Notice: Shown congruence values are for the selected date/time and location. If some contacts are residing elsewhere, location should be set accordingly (from the button labeled "Here & Now") to show true congruence values for them
  • Added descriptions to attribute notifications (pull-down to show)
  • Added new attributes section: Primal Activities (Love, Light, Power) [very important/useful metric]
  • Smoother profile suggestions; optimized algorithm
  • Slightly increased the significance of gender in attribute calculations
  • Slightly changed "minor arcana" and "jung personalities" calculation

  • More relevant automatic attribute tracking
  • Improved congruence/compatibility precision

  • Notification icon workaround for Xiaomi devices (requires root)
  • Removed pollfish survey platform (rewarded videos are still in place for an-ad-a-day feature)
  • Various fixes & improvements

01.2018
