Autumn and covid
One of the most important innovations of this half-year was the Plus subscription. It helps us support the development and operation of the project.
A subscription for a small donation on Boosty or Patreon services gives you full access to all additional features of The service.
Some changes over the past six months:
- during the summer period, we have significantly improved the performance of the ride analyzer. now it handles both long and short bike rides and walking well
- we decided to separate the work with IOT devices into a separate project
- the trip view page has been significantly updated
- we started to implement the feature of viewing a series of trips, especially for your long trips and hikes
- we have significantly improved the list of popular bands and the latest public routes, they give more interesting recommendations and involve the audience to view
- processed system updates and generate a auto-map for groups, a change in the coordinate point of the query is not a new point, but only I can edit it
- superior "adaptability" of many pages to work with mobile devices
- for many events that occur with your groups or account, the system now sends informational notifications by e-mail
- we have brought the system of accounting for your transport to a significant readiness. you can use it to take into account the depreciation of your transport, both in General and for any installed nodes
- statistics on viewing links, groups, trips and trip history have been expanded. trip views will affect recommendations in the future
- we started work on the editor recorded trips, which allow to split the drive in a different or merge two into one, it is sometimes necessary, if the initial trip consists of several stages (for example on different type of transport)
In addition to the changes, unfortunately we faced difficulties:
- in July issue has been identified that sometimes the movement of the positions of the users on the site stops after some time, finding the problem took three weeks
- in November was found a problem that sometimes the movement of the position of the user is terminated when this link opens another user
We would also like to note that in September and October, we tested a new special version of the OsMoDroid app with a camping mode that is extremely resistant to poor communication and energy-saving for the smartphone. Unfortunately, there are problems that prevented us from releasing it to the public, but we will return to this topic later.
In the future, we plan to write news more often, stay with us!
