    Keep in mind the app will look much different when the schedule is announced and made available to the app.

    All shows and events, both where and when, will be available in the app, and notifications will be provided for each event based on your preferences and how you rated the bands.

    I didn't get a push message this time (for Edenbridge).
    No complaint - the app is awesome - just in case you need feedback on bugs.

    Thanks a lot for coding this app - keep up the great work!

    No notification for me either, but when I opened the app like ten minutes after the announcement was made, I could see Edenbridge on the lineup in the app.

    Just in case this only affects some users, I'm running Android 7.0 on a Oneplus 3.

    Just to offer a more positive feedback, I must say I did receive my notification for Edenbridge perfectly. I am under Android, too (OnePlus One).

    Edenbridge announcement came through perfectly fine on my iPhone 6 :)

    Real handy as I was out and about, and it was at a VERY unusual time of the day - it came out at 5.40pm here in Brisbane. First afternoon announcement since Saltatio Mortis back in July!

    Yea not sure what happened. Especially since myself and other iPhone and Android users did receive the notification. There are only 2 possible solutions.

    1) You are running an older version of the app, and should upgrade. It would have to be a pretty old version to be effected by a change to the push notification provider I made about 8 months back. (Parse is shutting down next month and I switched to a Google service)
    2) There was a hiccup in the Google service I am using for notifications

    I send one push message to a Google service and they handle everything else from there. I obviously sent my message, since some people got it. There is still code on my end that receives and does the notification, but this has been working fine for other announcements...correct? Again, be sure you are running the latest version.

    Keep me aware if this is an ongoing issue and you start missing more announcements. For now I will just note this as something to keep an eye on.

    Thanks

    I'm running version 20160702 - should be up to date (says PlayStore).
    I received notifications for the last bands, so it worked before on my device.

    Let's hope for more announcements to come in quickly, so we can check if i's a recurring issue :D

    Thanks again!

    I got the push notification at 2:55 am US Eastern time, but Andy's post here was at 12:46 am. Maybe they updated the band-page a bit later...?

    It was 2:38 a.m. Eastern Time and my notification was 2:55 a.m. also.Right now my posts are timed one hour ahead because I haven't done time change to fall back.As for people who didn't get push notifications,maybe you have a silent time and the app didn't push because of that.Andy's later post time for this one.

    The people with the issue are from Finland and Germany, and for them this would have happened mid morning.

    Yea, my software doesn't read the forum posts, but the artist page on the web site. Often times there are differences in when things are posted to Facebook, the news Page, the forums, and the artist page...so I am sure that is the reason behind the 20 min delay in notification.

    As far the the missing notification, my best theory is a hiccup in the Google service I am using to distribute these. Hopefully this will not be an ongoing issue.

    Because this post was so popular the last time I did this....

    Country iTunes Android Total
    USA 190 147 337
    Canda 47 53 100
    Germany 30 23 53
    Switzerlan. 20 14 34

    France 7 7
    Luxembourg 5 5
    Other 35 105 140
    Total 441 403 844

    This data comes from Apple and Google. Google gives less details on country, so there is more in the 'Other' category

    I am confident that once our social media shy friend on the beach see the app we will easily see the total number hit 1,000 users. Meaning the app will be installed on 1/3 of the ship. (In theory at least)

    See you guys soon!

    There seem to be some similarities between Memnoch's device and mine - also no notification for me this time.

    Apologies to those not receiving the message intermittently.

    Not sure what I can do in the short term. There are only a few possibilities.

    Intermittent issues with the google service
    Intermittent issues with my code on your phone
    Intermittent issues with the Android push service running on your phone

    Whatever the case, I don't think there is much I can do in the short term. If you can let me know after the last announcement the percentage received that would be helpful in trying to reproduce the issue. I will see if other developers are reporting intermittent issues with the google service sending to android devices.

    Thanks.

    It does look like the problem is on Google's end. The Einherjer notification did come through, and there's been no changes to any of the Android services (that I can find) between the last two announcements. The only one that could cause problems on my device is the disabled Google Hangouts, but then again my phone isn't rooted. I enabled the completely useless Hangouts anyhow, so let's see if that fixes the issues (only did it now after the Einherjer announcement). :beerwink:

    Not sure if this is a red herring or not, I've had Hangouts active the whole way through (we use it for work!)

    Whether or not that is the reason for it - I can confirm my Galaxy S6 did get the Einherjer push (Android 6.0.1)

    Aaand no notification this time either. There was an update to the OS today, but I didn't see anything that could change the odd behaviour.

    There is probably not much I can do before the cruise. (With only 4 or 5 bands left, that should be fine)

    We may only have 2 more notifications. The next 3 he has already said are coming in a batch, then we get the last 1...maybe 2 and we are done until the schedule is announced.

    For next year, I will update to the latest google API's for push notifications. Hopefully that will help, and I will add other improvements as well.

    The feature I am most likely to introduce will be adding a 'notes' field to the band details screen. This will allow people to jot down and view their own notes on the band.

    Hopefully people will be really happy with the schedule display feature (this feature received the biggest revamp this year).

    Looking forward to seeing everyone on board!

    Oh, this sounds like a really cool idea!
    By the way, I'm using Android, and had no issues with the last notifications.

    Just wanted to drop in a 'thanks' to you, slayergeek - - I used the app both last year and this year, and there's nothing like looking at my phone and seeing that notification (always right on time for me). It's awesome that you put work into this and shared it with us.

    Hey everyone. I have reset the app in preparation for when 2018 announcements will happen.
    (I have no inside information as to when)

    If you want to access last years data, there is an option in the settings for 'View Last Years Data'
    You will see all of last years data, and still get push notifications with new announcements.

    I do use this feature to test notifications, so the schedule (as far as alerting goes) will always be the current week. So either disable show and event notifications, or expect to get notified every day as if it is the week of the cruise when using this feature.

    Since 2 or 3 days ago, I started receiving alerts about bands going to play. I looked at the new option for using last year's calendar, and it was deactivated, so I cheked and unchecked it. I still received alerts, so I unchecked absolutely all boxes in the options fields...then, last night, I've received an alert about a Meet&Greet :trashdrink:
    I uninstalled the app, I still have a few months before the next cruise anyway.

    Weird. Android, or iPhone?

    An un-install re-install might resolve the issue as well.

    Android.
    For the moment I'm not reinstalling it, as I am in Europe my phone woke me up during the night, and I don't need this as my sleep is already pretty fucked up :? Not taking any chance until next year.
    But as I am the only one complaining, this must be something on my side.

    I feel like a lot of people with it on android just uninstalled it. What with the issues that arose right before broading. That was pretty disappointing.
