I’m working on v1.2 by going after the nasty bugs which were reported earlier in this post. The main crash was caused by having non English locale setting. This was the cause for most of the crash reports, so hopefully that won’t happen anymore.
I’ve also had a go at memory leaks and nailed them down which too were causing touble. I think v1.2 should be a little more stable than the last version.
Are you also fixing or looking into the reason why it lags a month behind? I mean the earnings for Nov appear as Oct. – I sent you my API key to check it out. Thanks
I’ve been looking at this problem, but have had no luck reproducing it. Again this could be related to some setting in your iPhone that the app is not accounting for. I’ll keep at it and lets see if v1.2 will make any difference.
The update will hopefully get to everyone in the next couple of weeks.
Thanks to Turkhitbox, Bluegestalt and Vibes35 who shared their API key and helped.
Turkhitbox also discovered how the crashes can be consistently reproduced which was excellent. This is what he wrote to me:
I found the error.
I changed the Settings > General > International > Region Format to United States.
It was Turkey before.
I guess it tried to get the month names and other things in local language.
So if you too are experiencing crashes, give this fix a try and see how you go.
Thanks everyone for your input. Looks like we are making progress. You could say this version was rushed out the door because the APIs got changed and caused issues with Nvator 1.0.
Epicera, thank you for the kind words. I hear your suggestions and they are good.
Darius, I read your review of the app and felt compelled to mention that this isn’t a money making scheme. It also isn’t a $30.00 theme sold on Themeforest that could accumulate a lot of money. Thus be assured that the goal of this exercise is to give the community a useful piece of software.
The rest of you good people who are experiencing crashes, please continue to bear with Nvator and these problems will be resolved. This is only the beginning.
Though many have found that the application works fine, I’m a little bit surprised by the number of people who also have problems; however I think I may know as to what the cause is. The truth is that I can only test the app with my own account which is relatively new, with small amounts of data and the app has never crashed for me, hence the release. I feel that accounts with smaller or larger amounts of data may bring these issues to the surface.
This brings me to my next point which requires you authors to help me with my testing. I’m happy to work with anyone who is experiencing issues, but this requires you to share your API key with me so I get to see the problems you see.
PLEASE NOTE , giving away your API key ‘DOES NOT ’ mean that I’ll have access to your accounts. It merely means that I can see your balance.
In particular I’d appreciate if Darius, Chrisfay, Turkhitbox, Bluegestalt, Djankey and Vibes35 who have been vocal about their experience, to kindly respond to this call and help me make Nvator better. Please don’t post your API keys on the forum. You could send them via the private message facility on my profile page.
Regarding the Android version of Nvator, I must say that the idea is great and I have thought about doing one for Android too. The only hesitation comes from the fact that even the number of iPhone users are still too small. I feel that the number of Android users within the Envato marketplaces could be even smaller and perhaps the time spent on developing an Android solution can be spent on bettering the iPhone version. Honestly I don’t know but it will be helpful if those that are interested in Nvator for Android to come forward and indicate their numbers.
In closing, I just wanted to say thanks to all of you that have come on the forum and discussed Nvator and of course your patience.
links etc, because l was worried about TF api thats all but looks fine referall page thats all,
Hey, I wrote that widget If you do see the items appear in the page then it means that the APIs are working just fine. Only make sure to spell your username correctly otherwise your referrals will be missed.
You should be able to see how much traffic you are sending to themeforest at the bottom of your “Earnings” page.
A new version of the Nvator iPhone app is now available for buying/update from the iTunes app store via this link:
New features are :
- Recent Sales
- Monthly earnings
- Graph for earnings
Here are some screenshots for you to see:
As always bear in mind that this is a work in progress and your input is most welcome.
You are right in that the value usually is the same as the balance but not in all cases. Nonetheless, one has to acknowledge that Envato devs are expensive resources and it looks like fixing the APIs isn’t on top of the agenda. On the other hand I have updated the Nvator and you should look out for an update.
