HanDBase v4.9.074 has been submitted to the app store!

Hi everyone,

Happy to report that finally an update is headed your way- yesterday evening I submitted the update to Apple for review. Hopefully they will approve quickly and without issue. Here's what is new:


* TouchID/FaceID support- optionally use your fingerprint or face on compatible devices to open your password protected databases
* Data detectors in view record screen - tap underlined text within a text or note field to dial, launch a URL, send an email, etc.
* Now text and note fields will show an x button to the right to easily clear the field when editing.
* iPhone X support for longer screen
* Compress View option for view record screen - only shows fields that have values set.
* Many bug fixes

There are some other smaller changes as well, like you can hopefully now use the + in the dialer field.

This update began back in February of 2017 and took way longer than I had hoped. This was mainly due to me having limited time to work on HanDBase at all, but also a lot of it is related to some other structural changes I have been working on to support a new, separate ad supported version of HanDBase that is still yet to come. You shouldn't see any sign of it in your version but hopefully soon I can open up HanDBase to a much larger world of users who are not willing to pay for the app, and still make some revenue via the ads. Also making HanDBase work with the iPhone X was more problematic due to it having a programmatic UI, and the built in support for iPhone X screen requires the use of Storyboards instead. So I had to do quite a bit to make the screen scale properly- hopefully I got it right, at least it looks great on my iPhone X!

I'll let you know when the new build is live and thanks to everyone for your patience and support!

Have a good day

Dave,
Just took the update for a short test drive. It looks good on my iPhone X! I *love* the numbers and addresses being live - with option menues to boot! I do also like the collapse view mode. Question, though: now that telephone numbers can be tapped directly in the fields that they’re in, does this mean I can do away with the external rail number fields I have been using to dial phone numbers from the record view?
Regards,
Bob

Hi there, bad news, handbase is broken today. I'm using an iphone 5 with ios 10.3.3, it was working fine yesterday, it seems I am on Handbase version 4.9.074 2018.1.10.2.
when I press icon for app it opens and I get the screen showing databases available, but when I choose one it blinks off and I go back to iphone app screen. A double home button press shows me handbase with the correct database open, when I touch to bring it up to main screen it appears full screen for a second then screen redraws to the database list again. If I use an encrypted database I get a new password screen asking if I want to use touch ID, putting in my password leads to similar behaviour as before.
I've turned iphone off and on again with no improvement.

I've posted this to support as well, thanks

I'm also running 10.3.3 on an iPhone 6+ and the 4.9.074 update crashed every time I tried to open a database.
Deleted and reloaded - no better. 2 hours later I did the same thing and found the Appstore had 4.9.073 which works like a charm.
Thanks DDH!

Please don't suggest upgrading to iOS 11. I have been avoiding this due to problems with performance, battery life, etc.
I'd rather just go back to the old version of Handbase.

Hello, another issue I'm having now is with sync to the desktop. The version was upgraded on my phone, but not iPad. Phone receives the below error message, iPad is successful. Both devices were syncing on 01/11/2018 last week. Not sure if it's the Database, but over and over it stops on a DB which only has 2200 records, and less than 15 columns. Here are the logs. I rebooted the desktop (Windows 10) and the iPhone multiple times.

I don't see any corruption in the DB. Anyone else having an issue?

All, by creating a record in the desktop, it now syncs. Doesn't make sense to me but I'm OK at the moment. Plan to upgrade iPad tonight.
