Hiatus

February 9, 2014

It has been a long while since I posted, I thought I should drop a message to let you know what is happening.

Not much active development is happening in Cloudpipes anymore and I am experimenting with some other projects here: http://habeebq.wordpress.com/

But most of my development work is halted due to a new addition to the family who is demanding a massive amount of attention! That and lots of work at my job, so development may be very slow.

Cloudpipes eXTenDeD is released!

July 31, 2013

Finally after a long wait, I am satisfied enough with my code to release the full version of Cloudpipes!

You can get it here.

It wont cost you much, just to show some support to the developer, that is me!

Cloudpipes Plugins!

July 30, 2013

Its been a while since I posted, but I have been at work!

Release two plugins for Cloudpipes that extend its capabilities vastly.

One is PhoneBackup

Its a cool tool that can backup your SMS, Contacts and Call Logs. The good thing is that it backs it up as a CSV file. That way you can just open it and see all your contacts. What is every way more cooler, is that you can edit the CSV file and restore the edited data back to the phone. It is really useful, do have a look at it.

The other plugin is a Tasker Plugin 

You need Tasker and Cloudpipes both to use it. It allows you a greater control over when you want to run your pipes. Users of tasker will already know what to do with it!

Apart from that I am pretty much ready to roll out Cloudpipes eXTenDeD now finally. I believe it is really stable and no body will have any issues with it!

Whats happening

February 24, 2013

It has been a while since my last update. Mainly it goes busy since I went on holiday and then bought a car (my first!). So I didnt get a lot of time to work on Cloudpipes. 

However, I did have many improvements in the pipeline. Main focus is making it bullet proof stable so it does not crash anymore and also on better performance. These things are still in the works but things are moving along nicely.

There are some feature requests in the pipeline too, for e.g. customisable backup location. If there are more feature requests I will try to entertain them if I have enough time.

Updates…

December 18, 2012

Its been a while I have posted now, just got busy is sooo many things!

I thought I would have released Cloudpipes eXTenDeD last month, but I wanted to make sure I had all the bug reports cleared before. Some of them were weird Out of memory bugs. Also, some requests started flowing in, and it seemed a good idea to me to add those features in before I released the new version.

Some people asked for landscape mode which is a very reasonable request. Thank God, I got that working…well almost…

Many other bug fixes here and there and some more memory optimizations (better listviews)…

Another issue I was having was on large transfer lists being stored in memory. Looks like I need to add a way to auto-purge if the list becomes too long (which by the way is quite hard to guess when to purge it actually)

I also plan to improve the swipe behaviour, which is pretty bad on the pipes screen right now.

I hope to release it with these updated features in the coming weeks.

In the meantime I have been toying with other ideas too. I did some work on a SMS and Contacts backup solution, which I may post soon. I am also toying with the idea of PC Syncing with contacts or other data too…too many ideas…too less time!

Cloudpipes eXTenDeD

November 12, 2012

The paid version of Cloudpipes has pretty much been finalized.

It will contain the following features:

  • Migration to Dropbox API ver 1 (okay thats not a big deal!)
  • Disable pipes
  • Flatten files into a single directory
  • Recursive directory copy can be disabled now
  • Shortcuts on launcher to run a pipe
  • Backup/Restore you pipe settings
  • Infinite pipes

The pricing has yet to be finalized.

Updates!

October 25, 2012

It has been a while since I posted. I have been quite busy with other things in life (health, family etc that also require attention!). But I have still been working on Cloudpipes in the background, improving things, adding features and getting a clearer idea of its future.

Since the last update on the blog I have added numerous UI improvements to make the app look better. I added a slight background, better looking boxes, shadows, overlays, better dialogs, progressbars, swipey tabs. In the features I added Revision checking, One Way Sync, pipe backup function, a plugin framework, and developer logs sending feature. Loads of bug fixes as always, tried to improve error resilience and reporting. Learning and progressing everyday.

There have been many feature requests, some are possible. Some are not possible due to lack of time, or due to the way the app is now built. There are now a couple of more planned features that will come to the new paid version (I’m hungry sometimes!). I hope to churn out an unlimited version in the next month or so. Lets see how it goes!
