Progress with 1.7

Update 1.7 is coming along nicely. I have added lots of changes under the hood and I have discovered the source of the crashing when sharing, saving, and printing on mobile.

The changes that I have made under the hood are not tied in so they won’t affect normal app usage. I am still experimenting with how to arrange and organize ink data with relation to the days. It is very simple to associate a month with an ink file, but when you start to move to weeks, or work weeks, or arbitrary date spans it becomes much more tricky.

The source of the crashing of share, print, and save was a result of low ram devices. I tested saving an ink file on device with 512MB, 1GB, 2GB, and 3GB. I’d been doing all of my mobile testing on my Lumia 830 which only has 1GB of RAM and I was experiencing the crashing. When I downloaded a few more mobile emulators I discovered it was related to the available RAM to Ink Calendar.

To remedy this for now I have added a line which checks for the available amount of RAM and enables or disables the buttons accordingly. Long term I would like to find a way to share, print, and save more efficiently and enable those features on more devices, but for now this will have to work.

Thanks again for using Ink Calendar! If you haven’t rated/reviewed Ink Calendar in the app store I would really appreciate it!
