But it’s not clear when this can pushed mainline: it’s mimSdk=14, so I don’t have ways to test it, and they don’t really seem to have had a real release yet. So, if we push random tip version with bugs, we won’t be able to fix it they make a release, because we can’t bump vercode on our own so far. So, please help testing it from staging repo.
I tried the version from staging too. Looks good, except that there are some chinese(?) symbols on the bottom of the screen. Export doesn’t work for me. I get “please check SD card”. I didn’t test sync because that would need a google account.
CM9-alpha4 (ICS 4.0.4) on i9001
The Chinese symbols are not a problem because the there is a “+” next to them , indicating a new note. Yes I get the same problem with the export. I suppose we would just leave the sync in there even if it is a bit misleading. The search function isn’t working for me either, now that I pay attention.
The PR request above is basicly my flushing any useful bits from my staging repo. I did recipe long ago, but the app sets minimum API level pretty high, and I couldn’t test it previously. Now I did, and saw a simple note-taking app with pretty fancy UI. It reminds me of a similar vendor app which comes with Galaxy S2 – I use it from time to time to jot on the run simple things and then delete them later, and never needed export, sync, or even search funcs there.
After daithib8‘s comments, I looked in more details: extra functions are accessible via menu button. Search doesn’t work for me – full list of notes is shown after the search still. Sync says it synced stuff, but nother in Google Tasks appear. Export says “No SD card” for me (indeed, I don’t have one inserted). Putting note as widget on home screen works.
Summing up, it’s nice-looking simple note-taking app, part of MIUI suite, of which F-Droid already has few apps. But Notes app has few functions which are advertized, but don’t work, and that may be confusing. So, we may add notes about those issues to description (still a bit confusing), or still leave it out fornow.
