Version 2.4.0 Work In Progress
« on: June 13, 2018, 09:09:57 AM »
I don't have much to show at the moment but I will use this post to show screenshots and videos of some of the new screens/features as I work on them

I wanted to create the post now to allow plenty of time to gather some testers. I won't release it straight to beta where there's already hundreds of users signed up because with a rewrite there's likely to be breaking issues that I've missed so I'm looking for people that won't be too pee'd off if their locks break etc. Or for people with second devices where it's not going to affect their main account and locks.

If you're interested then email me at kevin@chastikey.com. It will probably have to be your Google Play account email address so I wouldn't recommend sending it to me in a PM on the forums if that email address isn't an anonymous one and you don't want it sitting in the forum database. It'll also be good if you mentioned that you're signing up for the Android version as I still get emails from people asking to test the iOS version so don't want to add you to the wrong list.

Hopefully I'll have a few things to show here on this thread soon.

Thanks. It's a long way off from being available but collecting email addresses ready for it.

Still nothing to show at the moment but wanted to mention that I've now got a discard pile to actually hold and save cards discarded.

Why is this important? Someone asked for a card that would rewind and replay the last x amount of cards in the discard pile. I haven't programmed that part yet or even designed the card but you may see something like this in the next version. I don't know if it will replay the last x amount of cards or put them back into the main deck for a chance to be picked again. Replaying the last x amount of cards would be interesting.

One possibility is that if the last 4 cards in the discard pile are reds and it replays the last 3 cards you may have to wait 3 days before picking again.

I vote for making it the Groundhog Day card.

That's a good idea, as long as you want nobody under 30 to have a clue what the hell it's about.....

Of course, putting one over on the millennials is fun, too.....

If only there was some way they could find out what it means.

Here's a short video showing the new "Ready To Unlock" option. This will be seen on fixed and variable locks once the lock has finished instead of automatically unlocking and revealing the combination.

If you're out and about and not able to get to the key you can leave the total locked time incrementing until you can get access to the key.

If you choose "Decide Later" it will continue with the "Ready To Unlock" status

The video also shows the option of resetting the lock. Again this works on fixed and variable locks.

If “decide later” is selected, will a KH have the ability to then monkey with the lock? (Since the lockee has shown that it’s not critical for them to be unlocked yet)...

I don't think so. It's pretty much flagged as unlocked but just waiting for you to reveal the combination or start it again. It  might be a but difficult to allow the keyholder to interfere during that waiting period. I can look into it though.

I'm working on the lock options screen at the moment. Haven't got as far as the keyholder screens yet

Dear Kevin,
I'm Alex. I found this awsome app some days ago And I REALLY love it! Thank you for this great app.

I tested some looks and have some questions. May be it helps you to improve the app more.

Fake Keys:
I really love them. It's absolutely frustrated if you get a key and realize, it's the wrong.
But actually you get a complety different key. (I'm sure, you can remember some digits of correct code and know, it's the wrong one.)
And you don't have to try the key, because your ticker knows the right anser before you type the code at the safe.

So I think, either you use nearly Fake keys (125562 Fake: 122563 or 125662) and check about ticker or you dissapoint directly the lockee "Sorry, you got FAKE Key; Hope, you have more luck next time..."

Bots:
It would be very cool, if bots can do more options like real Keyholder while locked time. e.g. add more green cards, double or reset and hidden or discover number of cards.
If you set a key with fake key and let bot decide to hidden no of cards or not, all keys are hidden or not. Is it possible to hidden some and some not (decision of bot). Same with no of green cards. If you use 1-4 green cards and bot decide numbers, all key have same no.

You add emojis. It would be great if lockee and kh can also send a small message with update directly in key. If kh add some cards a short message can explain the imperative of this cards...

In any future a additional minigame could be very great. A gamble like slot machine or something else. You can add or remove cards (up to your luck...) The kh can force you to play a game and test your luck.

I'm sure, your updates costs much of time and money. I'm on board if you need support and I'm sure a lot of members also.

Thank you again for the great app!

Alex

Hi @AlexG,

Firstly, thanks for the positive feedback. It really is motivating hearing that people are enjoying the app.

With regards to the fake locks, I don't think that they need changing. If you're using a 4 digit combination then yes chances are you're going to spot that the number doesn't look like the one you was shown when setting up the locks. But whether you try the combination or log into the forum and check your ticker, they both require steps to confirm if it was the real one. Checking the ticker seems like extra steps though, especially if it was the real combination.

Having the app telling you instantly that it was a fake lock might take that away for some people, especially those that can't remember any of the numbers, like those using 8 digit combinations.

The bots do need more work done to them as they were last updated before some of the extra cards and features were added. It's been quite some time before they were looked at. At the moment I don't see them as a high priority because they've all got an overall rating of 4+ out of 5. They will get looked at again though. I have to be careful with them because they're not in the slightest bit intelligent and if they start randomly adding extra greens or double ups etc. some people may be locked for a lot longer than they'd hoped for. I do want to take them further, just to see if I can achieve some basic intelligence, memory and personality with each of them but it's not something I've ever done before.

Messaging in the app has been discussed quite a few times. I know the app needs it but there's reasons why it hasn't been introduced yet. I also know the emojis are pretty basic and often hard to interpret. I have a friend that's keyholding for me with the app and within the first day or two she picked an emoji for her mood and it confused me. After asking her she bashed them (nicely) saying that I don't have many to pick from.

Yes to minigames, just not sure when, what games, and what rewards etc.

Working on the app doesn't really cost but it does take up a lot of time. I've taken this week off work to try and focus full time on the app and work on the next version. Hopefully by the end of the week I can feel like I've made good progress.

I realise that I can only take the app so far on my own while holding down a 9 to 5 so I am considering options.

Thanks,
Kevin

Hi Kevin, how difficult would it be to add an alarm x minutes before your lock is due?
Maybe with a vibrate option?
If you're on a daily lock and don't pay attention you can lose a few minutes each day, after a week or so you can have lost an hour, which if, like me, you only pick in the morning before getting up can spoil the fun.
Many thanks, Rob
