Life Goals v1.3

This release continues the incremental feature updates, improves a number of facets of the user interface and fixes a bug which was introduced in version 1.1.

- The Goal description input screen is now multi-line and scrollable which facilitates the entry of long Goal names.

- New Category items will now be assigned a random colour instead of all new Categories being given grey as a default colour.

- 15 New Category icons have been added.

- The Task description input screen is now multi-line and scrollable which facilitates the entry of long Task names.

- The Task entry screen has been upgraded to make it more intuitive to enter the effort and impact for each task (see the screen shot).

- A bug was introduced in version 1.1 which could cause the App to crash if more than 10 categories were added and you selected the Graphs Tab. This has been fixed.

This version is backwardly compatible with data from earlier versions.

Life Goals cracks top 5 in Productivity Charts

Version 1.2 of Life Goals was released last week. With Apple's publicity from the "New & Noteworthy" section of iTunes it was great to see the App climb into a top 5 position on the charts. This increases sales by a factor of 10. If I could get the same in the US charts the factor would be more like 100.

Unfortunately a user in the UK has identified a bug which crashes the App if you add more than 10 categories and go to the Charts Tab. This problem was introduced in v1.1 when the ability to add/edit categories was added.

It has been fixed in v1.3 which has been submitted to Apple for Approval.

Life Goal reaches top 10 in Productivity Charts

Life Goals Enters Top Ten

And a new chart record - Life Goals is up to tenth spot with a bullet!

No doubt related to being listed in the New and Noteworthy section of iTunes (see previous post).

Very nice!

Life Goals in iTunes New & Noteworthy!

What a blast! Apple have listed Life Goals in the New and Noteworthy section of iTunes.

I am really chuffed by this. With over 150,000 or so Apps it is pretty hard to get noticed.

It is only a fluke that I saw this as Apple don't tell you if you have been added.

The next version (1.2) has been submitted for approval. Hopefully this should be released later this week.

New Life Audit Video Tutorial

I have just posted a video tutorial for Life Audit.

Click on the link above to see it.

Some folks couldn't work out what to do once the splash screen had loaded. Poor usability design on my part!
