The latest version (on iPad) consistently crashes when clicking on Cannibal Corpse (and perhaps other bands, I haven't tried) after going back while playing a video of another band on YouTube.

Also, Cannibal Corpse doesn't have its genre set. Gee, I wonder what genre they could possibly be... :deathmetal:

Ok, the Genre issue is fixed, and I can reproduce the iPad issue. Will get that fixed, thanks.

Hey everyone, I figured before public salesforce I would post the every popular breakdown by platform and country.

This year I will use the 'Active Monthly Users' as an easy data point to get stats for both platforms. This also gives a more accurate number of users actually using the app. I believe last year I used total installs, so comparing last year to this would not add up.

Here we here the data as of today

Active Monthly Users
-----------------
Android: 442
iOS: 344
Total: 786

329 United States
120 Canada
77 Germany
45 Switzerland
24 Norway
17 Sweden
16 Finland

Ok, I didn’t mean to say there won’t be issues. Just that they won’t be iOS 11 related. I have been running the beta on all my devices and 70K bands has been working fine with it.

That being said, I did just found a bug today where after the notes feature was added for some reason the official band link isn’t working.

Look for a fix soon on that one soon, but the other, arguably more important links, are working... so hopefully not too big a deal.

The push hasn't gone out yet. My app looks at the artist page on the web site

http://70000tons.com/artists/

As as of 3:24 PST this has not been updated. I could manually make the announcement and add the data, but prefer to wait until they update the web site and have the automated process do the work for me.

Sometime the web site is update before the forum announcement...sometimes it is almost on hour or more later. Like many things with UMC, they do things that from the outside look inconsistent and kind of random :)

Hey survivors.

I am partnering with Aaron Copeland to provide detailed descriptions for each band within the app.
Aaron has been providing these descriptions on Facebook and it makes sense for us to add this info directly into the app.
His text will be the default ‘note’ for each band. You can add to his description, or replace it entirely if you choose.
Look for this feature in a coming update for both Android and iOS.

The new Android and iOS versions are out. Now there are comments for each band provided by default.

The notes are being provided by Aaron Copeland, please give him a day or so to add notes as new bands are announced.

These are default notes, but can be modified or replaced by your own content.

I am not expecting to add any new features before sailing, but want to be sure any bugs are fixed way before then, so please report any issues encountered.

See you guys on board.

Thanks guys!

Not interested in getting UMC's money, though I would not turn down a free room every year if offered.

If I have one request from UMC it would be to take a more active role in publishing the schedule into the app. I believe they have made some concessions though....

They used to not publish the schedule until the morning before the cruise. I lobbied them hard to give me early access to the information, but was told that they could not promise me anything in that regard. I believe, in at least a partial but not acknowledge concession, they started publishing the schedule earlier..which helped me a LOT...so that was appreciated.

Last year though, likely due to internal issues, they did not publish the meet and greet and clinic data until we boarded. This meant that my app did not have this data last year, even though it was meant to.

I would love to work with UMC so that they could publish the data directly to my app without me having to do all the data entry after public release. That being said, it is what it is, and I will do my best to ensure all available data is in the app before we board while everyone still has a network connection.

See you guys on board!

Mine, too. I was on my "regular, relatively inexpensive" cruise this past week and having the app pop the band announcements on the home screen was really awesome. I'd get this big grin on my face and my friends on the boat would ask and I'd say "probably not a band you've heard of." :lol:

("Relatively inexpensive" here means "a bit less than half my cost for 70K" for a 6-night cruise.)

Awesome app! Here's a suggestion to make it even more awesome: Include the hint for the next band in the band announcement push message! :cool: Whenever there's a new announcement, first thing I do is checking the 70k website to look for the hint on the next band...
2018 booked! Deck 10, cabin 1564.
Lineup is already fantastic but could be even better with Ensiferum, Vanden Plas, Lord Of The Lost, Darkhaus and Powerwolf!

Not a bad idea, but currently my source of data for band announcements is the http://70000tons.com/artists/ page, which does not include the hint.

So I did a survey a few days ago on facebook on how many people would be buying WiFi on the ship.

Was curious if it would even be worth my time if a major schedule change happened to post an updated schedule to the app.
Here are the summarized results

193 people were not interested in WiFi
72 Indicated they plan to purchase
37 people indicated they might or had cost concerns


So maybe 1/4 of the cruisers would have Wifi then...maybe.

Hopefully there will not be any schedule changes this cruise, if there are I do not promise to make any updates

That being said....

If the change is major (a stage shutting down)
And Andy has published the revised schedule
And I have down time

Then I could see myself publishing the revised schedule...maybe


Looking forward to seeing everyone on board

Request: could you make the image folder for the logos a hidden folder? (on Android it created an extra picture folder that clutters things up)

Interesting, I store all my data, including the picture cache in a dedicated 70kBands folder.

Is some process on you phone scanning all directories and pulling out all images? I try making the directory hidden in the next release.

Oh, so THAT's how that happened. I was wondering where those came from.

Ok, I have a fix available as a beta in the Google Play Store, here is how you can sign up for the beta.


https://play.google.com/apps/testing/com.Bands70k

Basically I change the directory where all my files are stored from '70kBands' to '.70kBands'. All existing data will be automatically migrated. I also upgraded to a newer version of the google notification system, there should not be any code changes needed on my part, but just to be safe I want to wait until the next announcement before taking this out of beta.

Please confirm that this resolves the issue.

Thanks

I have had a report from one user who, at least temporarily, lost his data. I was able to work him and recover, but want to be sure no one else had the issue.

I 'suspect' he upgraded to the beta, and then downgraded to the production. This would have definitely led to situation he found himself in, but there is confusions on how he got in that state.

Please report back if the migration to the new beat version went smooth, or if there were issues.

Thanks

I got the notification for Sirenia this morning. When I opened the app, all my rankings were gone.
I tried to restart the app, my phone, nothing. The bandRankings.txt file is there and the content is still there, I don't know why it's ignored at the moment.
It's the first time it's happening to me. Android 5.0.1

Ok, you are the second beta user to report this. I am going to move things back to the unhidden directory and add a file that will tell android not to index the media files. Stay tuned, as an update later today 'should' restore your data.

Very glad to hear this. I will wait a few more days to ensure no new issues are reported, and then I will release this to normal production.

Thanks for being a beta tester!
