[Status] TimeMe Ideas, future changes and progress

Postby Arnold Vink » Mon Jul 15, 2013 3:22 pm

Feel free to discuss/share new ideas and changes for TimeMe in here.

| TimeMe native Windows 10 version
I'm currently updating TimeMe to Windows 10 so there won't be much updates for the current Windows 8 version for a while,
The Windows 10 version will blend the features of the PC version with the Phone version so the application is exactly the same
instead of having differences like needing a separate tool on the PC version to get the battery level working and not having calendar support on the lock screen.

| Future application ideas and changes
- Add a countdown page with countdowns to certain days.
- Add background color and photo transparency support.
- Redesign and upgrade weather icons to higher resolution.
- Create a wide live tile with the weather forecast for upcoming days.
- Make TimeMe UI text open source on Github to translate the UI.
- Custom live tile design, drag and drop design your own tile design.
- Random background images on live tile every xMinutes from selection list.
- (Win10) Add first vertical (tall) time live tile design.
WP10-VertTextPreview.jpg
- (Win10) Add setting to turn silent notifications on and off.
- (W10P) Set the Bing daily photo as your wallpaper/lockscreen.
- (Win10) Change AvTools battery reading to the new native battery api.
- (Win10) Port WP8.1 Calendar lockscreen information.
- (Win10) Port WP8.1 Cortana commands to Windows 10.
- (Xbox) Buy a Xbox One to test and optimize the application.
- (W10P) Port the Sleepingscreen to the new Lockscreen api.
- (W10P/Win10) Remove Timer, stopwatch and world clock... already in native alarms app.
- Old fashion designed alarm flip style clock with just the time on it. (Use background image)
- Secondary live tile with different time zone and different settings. (Not enough resources)
- Weather background image on live tile, after downloading from Bing weather.
- Add option to remove and add new cities from world clock.
- Add battery usage status tab. (Will require more background tasks)
- WP7.8 support, missing required features. (No battery status support)

The xap file is the application that should be sideloaded with XapDeploy.
For more information on how to sideload the installation read: viewtopic.php?f=10&t=4

And please note that this is a Windows Phone 8 application only.
You can also try another web browser.

Any chance you could add support for different/multiple fonts and possible add support for a background on the tile?
Also is there a chance it could support multiple tiles too (supporting multiple timezones/two small tiles)? Here's an example: [APP] Tile Clock. I had modified that one, but the background task is fried (Its from wp7.5 and the 7.8/8 version is only in 24hours) I had done some image swapping on that one.

V1600 will contain 3 different fonts, adding custom TTF font support will be hard to make because you can't easily transfer files to your phone which can be accessed (have the rights) by the application it self I will have to make some TTF http downloader... and all fonts have different heights/widths so they won't all fit properly without been modified to the proper size.
(You can try replacing the TTF fonts in the TimeMe Xap sideload version and then install it on your phone)

Custom (weather) backgrounds might be added in the future, v1600 will be final for now with only bug fixes coming in the next few weeks.

Two tiles / multiple timezones won't be added because I want to keep things minimalistic and it will impact the battery life more, I will consider adding a World Clock tab in the app it self :)

(V1600 will be released this week)

When will it be available in the store :D!
also, could you add the option to refresh the tile when tapping the tile? Like battery indicator apps?

I could have it in the store next week, I won't add the tap update function though because this might be automatically fixed by a jailbreak or something else in the future. And ill have to change alot in the applications code.
