Same issue. But I did notice that the second area that failed to download will show up on the home screen, like if it had correctly downloaded and was added to my areas. The text saynig failed to download please tap to retry is present under the area name, but tapping it here, rather than the "get more" section does allow the area to redownload correctly and work thereafter.

When entering notes for a "tick" the keyboard window covers the text box. Need to be able to scroll the window up from behind the keyboard popular.

Not a bug, but the format of the forum posts is kind of weird. I know having the wrapped text will save some space, but it just reads awkwardly for me, especially when there are some pictures embedded in the post. I prefer reading the forum posts on the regular browser, where they appear on my phone the same as they appear on my computer's browser.

Android 4.0.2 ICS, stock, Samsung Galaxy Nexus, Verizon LTE.

Unlocked, Rooted, lots of installed apps, using Nova Launcher. I've done a few tweaks to system files, just like installing a few extra shell commands and changing a few permissions.

Here's a play-by-play with the "AndroidBuild09.apk - 3307K":

1. installed fine, from opening web link in email, downloading and opening *.apk file with installer
2. upon opening the app after install, it appeared to be unpacking some files, grand teton and a few others possibly.
3. logged in quickly without issues and synced account
4. Proceeded to simultaneously download 14 areas, totalling about 100 MB (a few big areas, and many smaller areas)
5. Jtree, red rock, and southern AZ appear to be loading, but most other areas received download errors, "tap to retry",
6. Some appeared to download, but with errors on the import: "an error occurred while accessing the datastore...", but other areas were still importing and downloading.
7. It seems that clicking the areas where download errors occurred to retry to the download worked.
8. However, still getting the 'database access errors' on a few areas. Closing out the app and restarting it seemed to fix those.
9. Wow! photo loading and scrolling is really fast and impressive, responsive. Loads high resolution quickly. Slight lag in scrolling vertically the thumbnail page (red rock: dark shadows).
10. still on dark shadows... loading comments and ticks was quite fast, scrolling was responsive, with just a few slight jumps/skips. Seems like my phone was lagging, waiting for everything to cache, but I really don't know.
11. Went to view photos on Jtree: Sail Away (24 pix), and it was a 6r x 4c thumbnail page. The top row was slightly cut off with extra space below the last row. Nothing major, but maybe an alignment issue with the thumbnails. Viewing the photos worked fine. This seems consistent across all photo thumnail pages I've viewed. It might not be that anything is getting cut off, but is exactly lining up with the upper and lower screen borders with no padding possibly.
12. Forums asks to open a web browser, I assume by design.
13. Search my areas for a route was insanely fast.
14. Bookmarked my searched route (illusion dweller), and it worked.
15. Removed grand teton area. said "deleting" for about 5 minutes. I lost patience and starting clicking things. Click my profile link and it hickupped --- navigated away form main page but reset back to it with teton still deleting. Was able to load bookmarks, but upon returning to main page, teton was no longer deleting. clicked delete on it again, clicked again on personal page, recieved android "mountain projected has stopped error" popup. Teton stopped deleting and it reset back to main page - it might have force closed, not sure if it automatically went back to my homescreen or not. Grand teton database appears to be corrupted; it wont open: "an error occurred while accessing the datastore...". And restarting app does not seem to help.
16. Tried to update Grand Teton area. It updated fine, and loads. Trying to delete it again. It's been deleting for about 5-10 minutes, that seems like it shouldn't take that long. I am thinking there is some error.
17. Deleting Jtree area: "waiting to delete...". Still deleting Grand Teton too: "deleting area...". Became impatient after another minute, closed app and reopened, still deleting them.
18. Went to app settings menu and force closed it. Still hung up on deleting those two areas.
19. Was able to access my profile, add bookmarks, view my areas, and add another one, still while these two areas appear to be deleting. Started downloading Boulder area just fine.
20. Clicked more options from main page. "calculating..." Disk usage. Decided to go away for a few minutes and let the app do its thing...
21. been away from it for about 20 minutes... 145 MB disk usage reported. Teton and Jtree still hung up on deleting. Boulder was just finishing loading routes.
22. Went into app menu to calculate storage: took a while, 10-20 min. total: 332MB, App: 4.61MB, Data: 54.01MB, USB storage data: 273MB.
23. Teton and Jtree still deleting... decided to force stop the app.
24. Teton and Jtree still deleting... don't feel like rebooting my phone, as I need it for the internet right now. Will test more later.

Maybe the problem is that I downloaded so many areas... and normally one might only download one area to save storage space and just bookmark the routes they want to do in that area for bringing out to the crag.

Cheers,
Joe

The install is not working on my Kindle Fire. The device is set to allow installation of applications from unknown sources, the file downloads without issue, prior to installation I am prompted to allow the app to modify/delete internal storage contents, have full internet access, & read Kindle state and identity. However, when I click install I am given an "Application Not Installed" dialogue box. Thoughts? This happened with both the AndroidBuild07.apk & AndroidBuild08.apk


I have exactly the same problem on my kindle fire so its nit yours alone.

Me scaring years off my mom's life

This isn't a bug, just a suggestion. Some of the areas are massive in size (Wasatch Range for instance) and contain far more areas than I currently need. This wouldn't be an issue if I could save it to my SD card, but I can't. It would be ideal if we could save to our SD card OR be able to pick a smaller area to DL (LCC instead of the whole Wasatch or BVC instead of all of RR).

Droid Razr - Verizon

Awesome!

My ideas:
1. Able to download an entire state at once
2. downloaded areas organized under states, or alphabetically. kind of a jumbled mess (although you can search)
3. GPS tells you what climbing areas are close by
4. Able to enter personal notes for a climb/area. you may have personal gear recs, secret bivy spots, etc and it would be nice to have this info archived on the phone
5. area linked to climbingweather app
6. for the partner finder. it would be cool to have a "facebook" like partner finder. in other words, you can "friend" MP users, and have a list of friends who are free to climb on a calendar-like display

Im getting "force close" a lot when switching back and forth between landscape mode and using the back button. Im on an HTC Evo 3d Android 2.3.
Also, I know that you arent doing enhancements right now, but just for future reference being able to zoom in on the pictures would be nice. Some are so far away you cant see lables on routes.

By the way, this app is incredible. Could be my favorite app yet.

Wow, a lot better than my epub area guides I have on the phone!!

ok, now for a bug report - same issue as above, couple more details:

I opened Avalon, first tier, Mists of Avalon and switched to landscape to read easier. Got to photos and selected view, then selected the first one. Switched to portrait for better view. Then when I hit the back button it hung/force closed.

Quite reproducible, seems to be changing orientation while viewing photo and then hitting 'back' from a different orientation than the one I started viewing the photo with.

Actually I would say zoom on a photo is expected! I automatically tried to zoom even though I had read the above note...duh.

I don't know if it's just that my fingers are fat, but the hitbox for "Tap to see more" and "Tap to see less" seems too small. Almost every time I have to tap at it 3-4x before it responds.


+1 - on a samsung galaxy epic touch. Sometimes had to tap it a dozen times, just seemed not to respond/detect the touch on the words. Tapping up further in the text works fine, but tap on the words does not.

Still get sync error on asus prime tablet running 4.0.3.

Get this in the logs, looks like json parsing error, could be some unexpected values in my account. But it did work first on another device and i added some new favourites and ticks using the app, so could have written some bad json to the server. Will test on another device later:

On the SDCARD storage issue, it would be most helpful if you can let the user choose the storage location path. With the motorolla razr the "sd-card" is secondary internal storage and the micro-sd is mounted at SDCARD-ext.


This is an issue with the Motorola Droid 3 as well.

I also think that it would be a lot more friendly to have the option to dive one or two layers deeper prior to downloading the 'area' - for instance to get Boulder Canyon you must download all of Boulder, which is huge and contains multiple separate areas.

I agree with other users about being able to download only portions of an area or download areas onto the SD card, downloading the entire RRG takes a ton of space on my phone and it would be nice to be able to download only a few of the crags.

Also, if I bookmark a route and then decide to delete the area the route remains under the bookmark tab, if I click on the bookmark I get a message saying "an error occurred while accessing the datastore." Then if I go back to the bookmark tab and click on another bookmark of something which is still on my phone, I get an "app has stopped unexpectedly message". After I hit "Force Close" I am taken back to the homepage and it seems to work fine again unless I go back through the process above. I assume this is because the area of the bookmarked route is no longer on my phone but I have not been able to find a way to delete the bookmark without actually re-downloading the area and removing the bookmark that way. Seems like you should be able to delete bookmarks from the bookmarks tab to avoid this issue.

Upgraded to version 9 today and played with it some more.
On a Samsung Charge (latest Verizon Android release)
I didn't have the rotate views and return to page behavior mentioned above. I did try out of curiosity.
I was able to delete a small area - Monsey Glen Regional Park (1/6 areas downloaded)

The one behavior quirk I noticed was that the behavior to expand a comment for a route was not what I expected. There is a blue "tap for more/less" notification below long comments. Tapping that does nothing, I actually had to tap on the comment to get it to expand.

1 little bug, 1 maybe bug

device: Samsung Galaxy S
OS: android 2.3.6

1. Text fields which are extendable (the ones saying 'Tap to see more' on the bottom), are scrollable. When I put my finger on the text field and move a little bit the text in the box moves up and the first couple of lines are not visible anymore. It is pretty hard to reverse this scrolling. Tapping on the field does not help. Even after tapping, thus extending the text field to see the whole text, the first couple of lines remain invisible. Please let me know if you want a video of this behavior.

2. When selecting a climb from a list only the name and grade are actually linked to the page of the climb. The stars are no links.

awesome app!!

minor, but it makes me pause after using other apps: The search box does not have the customary search icon at the right side of it. Yes, hitting the 'enter' key works, but with most other apps I hit the search box.
