· Added

  • Nothing to report

Bugs:

· Move to sdcard – some people report when the app is moved to the sdcard that upon reboot WW doesn’t autostart to keep “No Scroll” option. Update: I have looked into this and Android’s current implementation will never allow WW to auto start, sorry. So if you move WW to the sdcard it will not autostart upon reboot. This is a nice work around if you do not want WW to auto start after a reboot.

· People are reporting issues after upgrading to Honeycomb. The default Home App from Gingerbread doesn’t work will with WW, please try another Home App like LauncherPro. Please see this link for more information: Home App compatibility

· Black screen appears sometimes. This is a bug with Android’s WallpaperManager code. It doesn’t like being called from multiple sources at the same time. If you get this error, try Menu->Fix or try rotating your screen.

· Sometimes after update of MediaStore and selecting an image from the Gallery might force the App to do a complete re-sync with images. If this is the case the Image selected may not appear and you will have to go back to the image via the Gallery again. I will be working on this with the next release.

· Sometimes the directory view will show multiple (same) directories. I am having a hard time reproducing this error to figure out a fix. Any help would be sincerely appreciated. E-mail twistedapps@twistedapps.org, thank you. As a note DO NOTE delete the the images unless you are absolutely sure you have backed up your images. While WW doesn’t delete images people have reported deleting their files and then blaming WW for this action. If you do delete your images see this blog link: http://blog.wallpaperwizardrii.twistedapps.org/2011/12/01/lost-images-recovery-method/

· Sometimes with some devices the Thumbnail displayed within the Gallery doesn’t match the actual file. This is an issue with the MediaStore and not WW. WW tries to passively update the MediaStore if it knows a file has changed. I might implement a new fix which will update the MediaStore directly if I cannot find another fix for this issue. As a work around you can always open up WW from another app like Android’s default Gallery

1.0.4.0

Fixes/Additions:

· Modified – Fixed

o The Wallpaper set options are no longer dependent on selecting “No Scroll” or “Scroll”.  Because of this all options are now viewable: (Crop Exact, Crop Landscape, Crop Portrait, Crop Scale, Exact, Scale, Stretch Landscape, Stretch Portrait, Solid Color).

· Added “Save” option

o Because some people do not want to use WW to set images, but people do want their images auto-resized to the default Android Wallpaper size I have created a save option.  This option will preform all of the same image processing requests as setting wallpaper, but instead give you an option to save the image to your sdcard instead of setting it as wallpaper.  All images are currently saved as “.png” files to the /mnt/sdcard/WallpaperWizardrii directory.  This means you can now save images as set them with another app if you like.  There is also an option to save the currently set wallpaper.

· Added Crop Scale

o Crop Scale will allow control of both vertical and horizontal control of cropping. If the image cropped is portrait then the image will be scaled proportionately portrait. If the image cropped is landscape then the image will be scaled proportionately landscape.

· Added Tablet (beta) option

o Many people have requested WW to be displayed in landscape. If have included this option as a beta option; which can be set via Preferences.  Please note this is in beta, and if you find any issues please e-mail and do not make negative comments in the Android Market, thank you.

· Added Home App compatibility Dialog when selecting “No Scroll”

o Many people have complained about the “No Scroll” option not working.  Because of this I have added a user feedback mechanism to indicate if your Home App may or may not be compatible.  If you home app is compatible the dialog will not appear.  If it isn’t known to be compatible then a dialog will appear giving options for the end user.

· Added ability to turn off the “No Scroll Service”

o This was added for people who never want to make use of the No Scroll option, or the service that is auto started upon reboot.  This option will disable the No Scroll option, and the service.

Bugs:

· Move to sdcard – some people report when the app is moved to the sdcard that upon reboot WW doesn’t autostart to keep “No Scroll” option. Update: I have looked into this and Android’s current implementation will never allow WW to auto start, sorry. So if you move WW to the sdcard it will not autostart upon reboot.

1.0.3.9

Fixes/Additions:

· Fixed Image processing issues

o Some people were reporting WW was having image processing issues.  WW now process images (rotate, greyscale, & flip) a new way which should reduce memory and produce a better quality image.

· Fixed some FC (Force Close) issues

o These were reported via the Android Market, thank you.

· Fixed Wallpaper History always on

o Now WW will only save the last Wallpaper image if the Wallpaper history option is selected within preferences instead of always saving it. Thank you for the e-mail.

1.0.3.8

Fixes/Additions:

·  Fixed Image quality issue

o Some people were reporting WW was having image quality issues.  I have updated WW to have better Image quality when setting images as wallpaper.

· Fixed WW opening from another app

o When opening WW from another app will now have all of the features presented when opening WW normally. “No Scroll” issue with this option should be fixed.

· Fixed Some Image issues within Gallery

o When a app does file processing (rename, delete, move, copy, etc…) without updating the MediaStore WW sometimes had issue.  Some fixes have been implemented.

Bugs:

·         Move to sdcard – some people report when the app is moved to the sdcard that upon reboot WW doesn’t autostart to keep “No Scroll” option

·         People are reporting issues after upgrading to Honeycomb.  The default Home App from Gingerbread doesn’t work will with WW, please try another Home App like LauncherPro.  Please see this link for more information: Home App compatibility

1.0.3.7

Fixes/Additions:

·         Fixed initial app closing upon launch for some people

o        Some people were reporting WW wouldn’t open at all. I worked with a user and figured out the issue.  This version will open for those who were having this issue.

Bugs:

·         Move to sdcard – some people report when the app is moved to the sdcard that upon reboot WW doesn’t autostart to keep “No Scroll” option

·         People are reporting issues after upgrading to Honeycomb.  The default Home App from Gingerbread doesn’t work will with WW, please try another Home App like LauncherPro.  Please see this link for more information: Home App compatibility

1.0.3.6

Fixes/Additions:

·         Added Flip (mirror) horizontal and vertical

o        Images can now be flipped (mirrored) horizontally or vertically

·         Added “Set Wallpaper” Stretch

o        A few people were unhappy about the Fit Display option not completely filling their display with their images.  This option will now stretch images to fit the display completely.  This option is dependent on Scroll or No Scroll.  If scroll is selected then any image will be stretched into the landscape dimension (android’s default).  If No Scroll is selected the image will be stretched into the portrait position. IE will on be set to the viewable space on any one device.  Please note the image might distort if the image doesn’t scale proportionately.  If a proportionate scaling is desired please use the Fit Display option.

·         Added the ability to sort images from within the Directory View or Gallery View

o        A few people were unhappy about the fact that images were only sorted based on the MediaStore DB unique identifier.  I have updated WW to sort all images based on their filename first.  Anyone can now sort based on filename or date.  Within the Directory view you can sort by directory name of date modified.  Within the Gallery view you can sort by filename or origination date of the file.  Select Menu->Sort option from either view.

·         Fixed the Directory View – Quicker

o        The directory view now uses lazy loading of images.  This will speed up this view with text being shown immediately and cached images slowly come in after.

Bugs:

·         Move to sdcard – some people report when the app is moved to the sdcard that upon reboot WW doesn’t autostart to keep “No Scroll” option

·         People are reporting issues after upgrading to Honeycomb.  The default Home App from Gingerbread doesn’t work will with WW, please try another Home App like LauncherPro.  Please see this link for more information: Home App compatibility

· Some people are reporting they cannot open this version at all, I have fixed this in version 1.0.3.7

1.0.3.5

Fixes/Additions:

·         Fixed Rotate/Greyscale resolution issues

o        All processed images are now cached as a losses png file instead of jpg

·         Fixed Gallery View Force close issue

o        Gallery view would sometimes Force close with a NullPointerException. This exception is now being caught.
