Release Notes

 AltosUI for iPads and iPhones is an active application that grew into being very quickly. As developers, we want this application to be the best it can be. However that takes time and attention. We worked to get all the critical features up rapidly and in doing so there are bound to be rough edges. We are hunting these down and recording anything we find on this page. Likewise, anything you our user community find and report will also be tracked on this page.

(we'll try to get updates out weekly for a bit while we address the known-issues and errata.)

Upcoming v1.5.0 Release: (planned for mid to late Sep. Upload to App Store for review)

- In Progress: See if we can get Direction and distance to rocket after landing more precise.

- In Progress: Idle mode support for ground setup and testing coming soon.

        (NOTE: Once a flight computer is verified it means that it is tested against recorded, but real, flight(s) and proven that AltosUI performance matches AltosDroid.)

- Please let us know of features that you would like to see in your AltosUI application!

 

 

v1.4.3 Errata (discoveries since release)
