third version

Previous version wasn't really 1.0.1 but simply "2 / Tsetchu"; the next one, "3 / Lama" has been packed and is now being tranquilo tested.

UPDATE 7.2.2011 After some field testing and one serious bug the Meditation Tracker 3 aka Lama is published into android market.

Feedback especially on German translation is welcome.

Here's the link to the latest test version if you want to have a try or install without market

- Improved session screen: big add button makes it simpler to use without looking at the screen; timer buttons are moved into menu
- Fixed crash after photo's taken (that was the last known issue so far)
- Settings are somewhat chattier
- Custom mala size. now you can have for instance 28 for the refuge and 108 for the rest
- First translations into Russian and German languages. Klingon to come
- Misc tiny bugfixes and facelifts.

  1. Thanks for the app! I had installed it, but for lack of a couple features I was using a generic counter application. With this upgrade it works for me now. I'm glad I left it installed so I knew when it was ready.

    Here are some recommendations for the next release:
    1. Bug fix: When I open the app fresh, everything displays as expected, but when I enter one activity and then come back to the main screen, the last practice is cut in half. It is hard to see and hard to click on. I have to create an "Empty" practice at the bottom so that all my real practices are easily visible. (Droid X)

    2. I like the setting to be able to show or hide Ngondro, but what about the ability to show or hide each of the 4 individually? I just started Refuge, so it will be a long time before I need the other three, but I still have other practices that I am counting. As it is I just hid Ngondro, and then created my own Refuge practice.

    3. Some practices are not required every day, but I want to have a certain number done by a certain date (e.g. 100 times in a year). I was thinking a way to put a decimal in for the daily requirement so the date calculates out correctly. That way we could see if the date is slipping or if we are on track.

    4. A small, "Subtract" button to subtract one mala if you unintentionally hit the "Add" twice.

    I'll send more if I think of any. Again, thanks for the app. May all beings benefit!
