Quidco App for Android Updated - v1.0.5

The updates include #11 – Removed debug logs..
It’s great to see such a quick response to a problem, however the raft of updates created some further bugs, and v1.0.5 was quickly superceded by v1.0.6.


Quidco App for Android Updated - v1.0.6


Software Updates

As always, I advise you to keep all your software up to date. You can access the latest version of the Quidco app for Android directly from the Android Market.

I have not yet confirmed the claims that logging is removed and the log file created by the v1.0.4 version is deleted, will update when these checks have been completed.

Beta Testing

If you’re going to release beta software, make it by invite only, then you know who is running it.
If you get a serious issue, you know who’s affected and have a central place to disseminate information.

Wikipedia says

Versions of the software, known as beta versions, are released to a limited audience outside of the programming team. The software is released to groups of people so that further testing can ensure the product has few faults or bugs. Sometimes, beta versions are made available to the open public to increase the feedback field to a maximal number of future users.

Flash Player has been updated to version 10.2 – minor build v 152.26 – but they still don’t support 64bit OS. Interestingly, the beta had 64bit support, but this was removed in the final release.

Adobe recommend you install Flash Player ‘Square’ if you’re determined to run a 64bit browser.

Check which version of the plug-in you have installed, and see which is the latest build for your OS / browser.
