Eternity Time Log 2.0 has been released with the following features:
Native iPad suppport
I designed Eternity in 2008 shorly after iPhone SDK was released. Mobility of the device and the functionality of the app made for a combination many users found perfect for tracking their time 24/7. But some users bought Eternity to use it on their iPads in an iPhone emulator mode. And of course they asked for an update that would let them use the full potential of their devices.
So here it is with all the features you know and like in the iPhone version but with interface redesigned to take advantage of the iPad’s big screen.
The Eternity’s basic layout consisting of Activities, Favorites/Recents, Log and Reports is now much more accessible on iPad with Activities/Favorites/Recents on the left and Logs/Reports on the right. Both panes are always visible in portrait and landscape modes. Backup, Settings and Tags are also just one tap away. iPhone is great for collecting your data on the go, it’s always with you, but reviewing and adjusting your logs and analyzing reports and charts is where iPad excels.
Backup has been improved in Eternity 2.0 to make it easier for you to keep your data safe as well as exchange it between devices.
Now you can backup/restore your data directly from Eternity on one device to another via your local WiFi network.
You can also backup your data to an email message and later restore from it using the Mail app. The .ebkp files are now recognized system-wide so it’s also possible to restore Eternity backup directly from other apps, like Dropbox.
Analyzing your data as pie charts is now improved with touch-based hierarchy navigation. Tap on a chart section to go down the hierarchy. Tap on a “breadcrumb” at the top to go up. You can also tap-and-hold to highlight a section, select another and lift your finger to go down to it. Traversable chart sections are distinguished by framed labels.
These are the highlights of the 2.0 release, but it also contains many under the hood improvements which should prepare Eternity for future updates.
Thats all for now. Enjoy :)
Hi there, thank you for a great app!
Are there any plans to implement auto-sync in a future release? Wouldn’t it be great to have the iPhone and iPad app be automatically updated via Dropbox or iCloud? And what maybe about a Mac app then, all three using the same data base?
Keep on! Best,
Thank you for the positive feedback!
I’m working on the sync. Exploring iCloud possibilities at the moment. Can’t promise anything yet, but stay tuned…
Syncing would be really nice, I’d buy an OSX version or pay for an in-app purchase to enable it.
I second that. Syncing would be great…in fact, for me it’s required for even using the iPad app. I normally use it on iPhone, so I basically can’t take advantage of the iPad app without doing a backup. I’d 5-star this thing immediately if that sync got enabled.
