Enhanced comment entry for Diary Entries

With the v3.0.1 update of CPT, we included a refreshed comment entry dialog that should make adding comments to a Diary Entry much easier and more efficient. For those of you that haven’t noticed this feature, let’s have a quick look.

With the v3.0.1 update of CPT, we included a refreshed comment entry dialog that should make adding comments to a Diary Entry much easier and more efficient. For those of you that haven’t noticed this feature, let’s have a quick look.

Comment Entry FormComment Entry - Landscape

The first thing you’ll notice now with the comment entry is that as soon as you tap the Comment Tracker to begin an entry, the table cell morphs into a modal dialogue that includes the comment display area, the keyboard and an upper toolbar. This helps to isolate the comment entry area and prevents inadvertent touches outside the comment window which previously ended the entry session.

Along the toolbar, you’ll see four buttons. On the left is a “Clear” button which will clear the contents of the comment window. In the center, you’ll see a Font Size increase and decrease button. And, on the right side, you’ll see the “Save” button to end the comment editing session.

For those of you with an iPhone 4S, you can use the new Siri technology to create your comment via Siri’s dictation capabilities. If you look at the keyboard in the images above, you’ll see the small Siri Dictation microphone just to the left of the space bar. To start dictation, tap the mic button and begin speaking. You’ll see the Siri indicator blinking as it accepts your speech input. Once you’re done speaking, Siri will generate the text from your voice input. Note, an active internet connection is required for Siri functionality.

Update v3.0.2 has been released

Please check out the new update (v3.0.2) we’ve just released on the App Store. This update addresses several bugs and crashes that have been seen since the release of the new v3.0 format.

Most of the changes are behind the scenes improvements, so on the surface you probably won’t see too many changes. We did however, include a new Landscape HTML Report Viewer which lets you use the full screen to review reports. This should make it easier to do things like review the report with your doctor without even needing to make a hard copy of the report. Give it a try.

We do appreciate everyone’s patience in dealing with these issues. I think you’ll find the v3.0.2 version a big improvement. That said, we are still working to improve the performance and stability of the app, so if you’re seeing additional bugs or crashing, please contact us directly with info: [email protected]

 

New CPT Update (v3.0.1) has been posted to App Store

CPT v3.0.1 has just been posted to the App Store. This version is a minor update to the latest v3.0 release and we recommend that all customers using v3.0 apply this upgrade. This update is applicable to both the Lite and Full versions of Chronic Pain Tracker.

The update addresses the following issues:

  • Fixed: Problem with foreign language encoding in HTML report files
    • Non-English characters will now display properly in HTML reports
  • Fixed: Intermittent crash when viewing graphs in Summary Report
  • Fixed: various bug fixes
  • Added: Improved image cache settings for older iOS devices
  • Added: Modal editor for General Comments Tracker to improve comment input process
    • When entering comments within a Diary Entry, you will now have a larger text input area with adjustable font size options.

We expect this update to address a number of the stability bugs seen in the v3.0 release. If you are still experiencing repeatable crashes after installing this update, please contact us via email at: [email protected]

New video tutorial posted – Reports In-Depth

We’d like to encourage all of our users to have a look at our video tutorials that cover all the new features and workflows in Chronic Pain Tracker 3.0. They can be found at the following page: Videos

The latest addition is an in-depth walk through the new Reports & Report Sharing features in CPT 3.0. This video is broken into 3 easily digestible chunks, so sit back and have a view. We promise you’ll learn something new about the app.

Bug Notice – Non-English Characters not printing on reports

A quick note to our users, particularly those using non-English interfaces. We do have a bug in the 3.0.0 version released yesterday that prevents non-standard characters (eg. ä, ü, etc.) from printing correctly on the exported HTML reports. We realize this is a big deal for many of our customers and so we have gone ahead and corrected that bug and submitted a new version (v3.0.1) to Apple.

We really apologize for letting this slip by – hopefully we can use this to generate interest in getting some non-English folks interested in being on our beta testing team for the future.

If you are using a non-English language and have not yet upgraded to 3.0, we recommend that you wait for the v3.0.1 version to become available. We’ve had very good turn around from Apple recently, so it could be a matter of a day or two before that’s on the App Store.

If anyone has any other questions or concerns, please contact us at [email protected]

For upgrading Customers – Your old data is safe

There has been some confusion about whether or not existing pain entry data is maintained when upgrading to the new 3.0 version.

I want to make sure this is very clear:  You will NOT loose any data when upgrading to 3.0.

However, there is a process that must be followed to import the previous data into the new 3.0 format. We have a video that walks you through this process posted here: Intro for Upgrading Customers

When you are starting the 3.0 version for the first time, you are required to create a new Diary to hold your pain entries. There is a green button labelled “Import v2.x Data” that will allow you to import your legacy data. Just follow the steps and you’ll have all your data available to you in no time.

We apologize if this process wasn’t clear enough.
