FullRecall for Android
Current release: 1.5, released: 2015-10-03.
- Tap-and-hold (i.e., longer press) on Learn/Force/New allows to select active category. Tap-and-hold on "Input" turns on a mode where items (without a grade) go into the queue.
- Press hardware "Menu" key for options (there are different options possible, depending on the context).
- Network related options (i.e., autosync/import/export) are available (i.e., not greyed-out) only when user's registration data is set in Options and when device is connected to the Internet.
- To use a custom .ttf font for question/answer fields: font file(s) (files ending with ".ttf") need to be put in main SDCARD directory or in a direct subdirectory of SDCARD called "FONTS" (case sensitivity doesn't matter), and it will be then available in FullRecall's settings.
- Default path to database directory is unavailable to other applications, but you can change the path and during selecting another directory, FullRecall proposes to create a new database or (if current database is not empty) move or copy existing (already opened) database there; directories on SD card are available to other applications; if you want to migrate FullRecall from/to Android, you can just copy the database directory.
- FullRecall rely on menu-button, while some new Samsung devices don't display it. Here is a way to access menu button on some Samsung devices. Also, if a keyboard is connected, then Ctrl+Esc brings the menu.
- FullRecall for Android is less stable than PC version and seems to have a bug that could result in wiping-out database elements to zero. Especially risky is leaving FullRecall in background, starting other resource-hungry applications, and then later resuming work with FullRecall (in the meantime, Android could partially close FullRecall to free up resources like memory for other applications). That's why it's good to end learning session by pressing "Save & Quit" and doing regular backups of learning database directory.
- Fixed possible crashes on some recent Android versions; crashes were possible if spellchecker was turned on in Android's options.
- Revamped code dectecting SD cards, to list external SD card.
- Added auto-backup - it needs to be activated in settings, i.e. user needs to pick a destination dir. If set, then on quitting FullRecall main (i.e. non-multimedia) files are saved there in a compressed form and kept for last 7 days.
- Added support for downloading images from secure-http (https).
- Less CPU usage (i.e. longer battery life).
