Linwood Wine To-Go v1.4

After being busy for a long time I have FINALLY had the chance to update the app with a couple of key things I wanted to get done.  I’ve polished the Contact Tools a bit to be better performing and more reliable.  I’ve also updated the search method to be quicker  and easier to use.  Also changed around the options a bit and the splash screen.

If you have a chance check out the update and let me know what you think.

Linwood Wine To-Go v1.3.1….

Fixed a small issue that was not allowing certain users to use the Call feature of the Contact Tools.

Linwood Wine To-Go v1.3!

Just finalized and released another update for Linwood Wine To-Go…  In version 1.3 I’ve combined the Help and Info section into one allowing me to add a Tools section.  The first feature added under that tab is the “Contact Tool” making it even easier to get a hold of us.

I’ve also fixed an issue that was causing devices with slide out keyboards to reset the screen every time the keyboard was open/closed.

If you haven’t already make sure you make your way over to the android market and download Linwood Wine To-Go!

Linwood Wine To-Go v1.2

Made a few changes to the app even though only one may be noticed…

-Fixed some more issues I noticed in the code.
-Consolidated some more of the code to be more efficient.
-Added Beer & Spirits to searchable items now. 
-Now when you add a picture to an email request it will ask if you want to take a new picture or pick from an existing one.
-Coding fixed on attaching image to email so that image FILE is attached therefor making it better quality than previously.

Linwood Wine To-Go v1.1!

The app has been updated.  I added options to it, fixed a couple of bugs, changed the icon to give it a little bit of a sleeker look, updated some information in ‘Intro’ as well as the ‘Help’ sections.  I changed the icons in the app also to be better represented on different devices.

Server side I’ve added (only for certain items) pictures and also rating images.

As more data is available and more items are added the database will be updated.  In those cases there’s no need to download an update to the app since it’s made to work automatically with the updates done server side.  There’s a few more things that I have in mind for the app so be sure to stay tuned 😉

Thanks to all of those that supported me and those that continue to support me.

LWTG Updated Server Side 07-15-11

After long hard work I finally enhanced the database to include more items in our inventory.  The program now actually includes all wines in our system not just the ones on our website.  Some items (for one reason or another) we don’t/can’t place online but you will be able to see them in the app.  I will be working on filtering our database even more to make sure it provides the most reliable information regarding availability.  For now it’s showing every wine we have currently or have had before.

I’ve also added ratings to the item information displayed.  If the wine has a rating setup in our inventory then it will show up in the app.

These updates proved to be a lot more time consuming than I thought it was going to be.  I might take a day or two off of coding to relax my eyes and clear my mind and then I’ll be back.  Look for another app update most likely Sunday July 17, 2011… Just a couple of bug fixes, info correction, and so on to better integrate with the server side updates.

Just to be clear there’s no need to update the actual application as the updates were done server side… So you should see the changes if you open the app right now.

LWTG Updated Server Side 07-13-11

The Linwood Wine To-Go app has been updated server side to now include the ability to share a link on Facebook and Twitter.  If you found a wine that you liked you are now able to share the link to that wine simply by clicking the Facebook or Twitter icon underneath the search result.

I’ve been working hard on trying to get more items that we carry onto the database… I’m happy to say that the progress on this seems to be going good so far.  I’m hoping by next weekend to be able to release an updated version of both the app and the database to allow for better results.

’til next time…

Linwood Wine To-Go IS LIVE!

The title says it all… head on over to the android market and download it 🙂

I look forward to getting all your feedback and as I’ve said before I hope it proves to be useful to many people out there…

Thank you!

Linwood Wine To-Go RELEASING SUNDAY 7-10-11!

That’s right… the cleanup of code is done… So far all the checks have come out good and everything seems to be working properly…. Unless something comes up unexpectedly the application WILL be launching this Sunday July 10, 2011.

Of course this is my first application so I’m a little nervous and I hope that it works out and helps people in the way it’s meant to.  Thank you for those who have shown your continued support during this grueling process especially my lovely significant other for those LONG LONG nights dealing with the glare of the computer screen 🙂

Linwood Wine To Go Update 7/3

A lot of code has been rewritten to be more efficient… This is proving to be a somewhat time consuming task with huge benefits for adjustments later. With the end in site I’m hoping the application will be done and ready to go soon.
