Back from the dead! Well, no, not quite. I did find a few hours recently to fix a small number of very rare crashes, though. So I took the time to roll a release. Unfortunately, my circumstances haven’t changed in a way that’d allow me to work on PackRat properly again, so that’ll be it [...]

If you’re a happy Nexus One owner and are eagerly awaiting the latest Android version 2.2 (aka FroYo) to magically appear on your phone, wait no more! A few days ago I forced my N1 to upgrade, and I’ve written up instructions on how to do that here. It worked like a charm for me. [...]

This release is mostly thanks to Mark Sunderland, who thankfully pointed out to me that PackRat’s lending feature does not work on HTC Hero phones that were upgraded to Android 2.1-update1. That’s now fixed — and kudos to Mark for helping me circumvent that bug in HTC’s upgrade! Other than that, I managed to solve [...]

It’s been a busy few weeks since the last release, and that prevented me from pushing updates recently. But I’m glad to say that nothing terribly bad seems to have happened since then. This release fixes one fairly strange issue: if you added an item to the loan list, then from there to the wishlist, [...]

Another week or so passed, another bug fix update. I’m getting into a rhythm here, hope I can keep this up. The good news is that the overall number of bugs is dwindling. The bad news is that as some bugs get fixed, the route gets cleared for you to encounter others. This week’s batch [...]

This release fixes a number of lesser bugs and one major one that seems to have escaped me and other people who reported issues. Switchbreak had a keener eye, and spotted that all of a sudden, smart shelves were editable — but once you saved your changes, they’d convert into regular shelves. The biggest change [...]

I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again: PackRat’s users are awesome! In my rage to squash bugs in yesterdays 1.2.1 release, I managed to introduce a new one, and didn’t see it before pushing the build to the Market. It’s a fairly obvious one, even: you can’t add items from any of the options [...]

I didn’t want to wait. Since I pushed 1.2.0, my crash log database has been filling up more and more, and that had to be changed. It’s kind of irrational, given that most of the bugs existed in PackRat for months and nobody bothered to report them, but hey, bugs still bother me. There’s nothing [...]

Alright, I’m growing impatient. This release has been sitting on my harddisk for a while, so I’m pushing it out. Unfortunately Chinese localization is incomplete in this release. The awesome guys over at nd.com.cn who perform that localization for free1 haven’t got around to that yet. Normally I’d be a lot more patient, but I [...]

Just to give you an idea of what I’ve been up to while neglecting PackRat a little, check out these videos: Yup, I’ve been busy. That’s for a client, who will hopefully publish the app any day now. Enjoy!
