What's New in Version 2.0
Full support for iOS 10 and improves everything from the ground up.
Great, and finally updated!
I've been using this app for about four years now, and it's always been slow, running hot, and hasn't been updated in the last couple years. But today version 2.0 was finally released! I've been testing it for a little while, and it seems so much snappier, and it doesn't cause nearly as much drain on my battery. There are new options, such as fog render intensity, and a new interface that suits the latest versions of iOS.
Thank you so much, Ollix, for not abandoning this app.
That said, I would really appreciate a way to export my data to a standard file format, readable by other apps such as Google Earth.
I AM SO HAPPY!!!
This has been, since I found it on Apps Gone Free, my favorite app of all time. I've gifted it to so many people because I have wanted them to experience this amazing real-life game with me. I am so thankful that there has been an update! The new UI is beautiful and I absolutely love all the new badges! I've been using Fog since late 2013/early 2014 and it has made life so much more exciting! I remember driving home a different way from work every day for a month just to explore my local area and clear fog. I have become a more appreciative person of nature and the world around me thanks to this app. Keep the updates coming! I'll keep spreading the word (:
New version a huge step backwards
After installing the update and converting my old data I've found that the app no longer behaves itself with respect to location services. It used to not leave the GPS on when in the background & not recording -- now the GPS is always on when the app is running regardless of recording state so I've had to resort to hard killing it to preserve battery on my phone. Sometimes even this doesn't work correctly & I have to re-launch & kill it again to get the GPS to turn off. I've also found that the new version takes a lot longer to start than it used to (from 1 sec up to 7 sec) making it hard to quickly turn on/off. Please update to fix!
