SpeedView 3.1

SpeedView - Hybrid speedo layout

  • New hybrid speedo layout
  • Added option to invert indicator colors
  • Keep running when the screen is locked
  • Minor bug fixes and improvements

This update includes a new speedometer layout that we call Hybrid. It’s an updated version of the initial speedo layout that features an analog-like dial with big speed numbers in the center. We are keeping the Legacy layout in case you would still want to use it.

Note: To clarify the situation with the Free version, we would like to stress that it’s not “canceled”, as some reviews seem to say. It’s fully functional, and you can use it for as long as you like. However, we decided to focus on the Pro version in the future. Here are the advantages that the paid version has over SpeedView Free:

  1. The absence of ads
  2. Street address bar with some additional info
  3. Premium support – you will get an answer within a day

SpeedView 3.0

This is a major update that improves almost every aspect of the application, from the functionality to the design. It has been in development for quite a while, and we are very excited to finally be able to release it. Please see the detailed list of changes below.

What’s new in 3.0:

  • Updated interface design
  • Support for extra high-density screens
  • New customizable speedo graphics
  • User-selectable indicator views
  • Smooth compass and speedo animation
  • Automatic GPX export option
  • New algorithm for GPS filtering
  • Service now runs in the foreground
  • Auto switch to GPS heading option
  • Better organized settings screen
  • Support for 1280×720 resolution
  • Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) compatibility
  • Many other tweaks under the hood

 

 

Note: This version (3.0.x) is pretty much a beta release. There are lots of things to improve and this list is growing as we listen to what you guys are saying in the comments section and in your emails. However, there is one frequent concern about this version that we want to address. We are NOT going to trash the previous default speedo layout. It will exist as a third option in its unchanged form for some time, and then will be replaced by a slightly revised skin to match the new look of the app. Stay tuned, and thanks for your feedback.

SpeedView news and updates

SpeedView was reviewed by Kate Russell on BBC Click’s Webscape.

We are also pleased to announce that the free version of SpeedView now has over 1,000,000 downloads, and SpeedView Pro holds the first place among the paid apps in the Transportation category (Maverick being close behind). We would like to thank everybody for their continued support and valuable feedback, and most of all for the cool ideas and suggestions that you guys email us or post on the Market. This is a really awesome experience.

Also, we would like to confirm that the new version of SpeedView is currently in the works and will be released shortly. We apologize for the rather long delay between the updates.

SpeedView 2.4

What’s new:

  • 0 to 60 mph time
  • Quarter mile time
  • Stop/Start recording data
  • Quickly reset odometer and max speed
  • Reset text colors

Note: 0-60 mph and 1/4 mile times are in their beta form. I wouldn’t rely too much on the results. And you won’t get milliseconds because the GPS receiver reports your location only once in a second. We’ll see how it can be improved. Also, we’ll add 0-100 km/h time for non-US and non-UK users in the next version.
