C.A.F. 1.0 is now available!
We have just released our first non-beta release on the Play Store which should be available in a few minutes. Before we go into the details I want to thank everyone for taking part in the beta program and for all your feedback and suggestions. We’ve been working really hard during the last weeks to get as much of your feedback and suggestion into our first public release and we do our best to continue doing so in the future for upcoming updates.
Here are the main changes of the new release:
‘Trigger icon’ and ‘Colored shape’ have been added to the list of available folder style. The first one is very simple: The trigger icon (e.g. Headset) of the current active scenario is displayed in a color and size of your choice on of our backgrounds of your choice. The second one is a shape of your choice that is colored depending on the active trigger type. You can also define custom colors for each trigger type including the the transparency in case you want to hide the folder in certain situations (e.g. if there is no active scenario available)
Both variants are ‘device neutral’ so they could be a good fit regardless of launcher type or theme.
Visual changes to your expanded folder view are now possible through a new tab in our ‘Folder style’ section. Some new customization options have been added including the ability to change the folder label color.
If you are using Nova Launcher then you are now able to import your configuration backup files which will adjust your folder style to match the look of your Nova app folder. It’s a beta feature because Nova offers some customization options that we can’t provide but it should be helpful nonetheless.
Thanks Jacob E. for the suggestion!
Our first paid feature is a new trigger makes it possible to create complex scenarios by combining a primary trigger, a secondary trigger and one of 3 logical operators (AND, OR, AND NOT). A good example is to get quick access to different music apps / playlists depending on the location where you plug in your headset (at home / not at home) but I’m sure that you can come up with some more interesting use-cases :)
A help section is now available which answers some commonly asked questions and solution to problems which might occur while using the app. When adding your first widget you’ll also see a new dialog which gives you a quick overview on all the customizing options that available through our ‘Folder style’ section. It’s not always possible to offer you the right style / sizes for your device that’s why we wanted to make it clearer that options to adjust the style are available.
You can override our default priorities if you want to prioritize some of your scenarios higher than others. It’s disabled by default because it might confuse new users but feel free to enable it through the settings.
Hardly a update without these right? ;-) But all jokes aside we’ve been able to optimize the code of our expanded folder which results in a much smoother expand animation when clicking on a folder. Doing so also allowed us to offer a option to further increase or decrease the animation speed if you prefer to do so.
Feel free to let us know what you think about the update here on G+ or on the Play Store. And as always if you like the app then please share it with your friends, family or on the social network of your choice because it helps us out a lot. Thanks for your support!
