iBCNU v1.7 is available - resolving the bugs in v1.6
If you've been reading the blog for a few weeks, you'll know that I'm fond of the APRS application for the iPhone called iBCNU. Version 1.6 which was released a few weeks ago had a few issues with the application crashing at startup.
I was delighted to see an update of the program (v1.7) released on 29th December. I installed the program yesterday and it's working well. The issues at startup have been resolved.
In addition, Dave, AB3Y has made the following changes:
+ if speed detected, it is shown as overlay on main screen
+ added metric and imperial units switch
+ added support for custom APRS filters
+ added detailed GPS information screen
* resolved crashes during application start
* resolved text truncation on LOG screen
* resolved text truncation on HELP screen
+ added new items to HELP screen
* changed custom interval upper limit to 1000s
* fixed visual bugs on Settings screen
+ added data RX and TX counters to LOG screen
+ added disconnect button
- removed "(iBCNU.us)" from streams
* changed splash screen
Nice work, Dave - and I think this is a really fun application to try if you have an iPhone. If you give it a go, try sending me an APRS message to G4VXE-6!
