What’s New

Version 4.1

• Long-pressing on an event in your list of events and choosing "Show Details" presents a much nicer view than before when it was a simple heads up display that disappeared after a few seconds.
• The full-screen weather view has been improved a little.

• You can now add your When's That events to your calendar! There's a new switch at the bottom of the new/edit event screen:
•• Adding a new calendar entry: Turn on the "Add Calendar Entry" switch when creating a new event, and you're asked to confirm the details before saving the new entry in your calendar.
•• Editing: Update the event and turn on the switch. As long as you haven't deleted the calendar entry since adding the event, it'll be updated with your changes.
•• Deleting: Edit the event and turn on the switch, then press the "Delete Event" button. You'll be asked to confirm before the event is deleted in both the app and your calendar.
•• You can delete an event in the app without deleting its corresponding calendar entry; just don't turn on the switch before you delete the event.

Notes on calendar entries:
• It's important to note that if you cancel the calendar entry screen, your new app event is still created or updated, but the calendar entry is not.
• If there are no changes in the event when you've turned on the switch, the calendar entry won't be changed.

• If you delete an event from the list in the main screen, this will also delete the calendar entry. The popup will inform you of this.
•• If you want to keep your calendar entry, edit the event first, leave the switch turned off, and delete it from there.

• If you edit your calendar entry in the Calendar app, and alter its notes, the event in the app doesn't know about those updates, so you'll be asked if you want to replace your app's notes with those from the calendar entry. This is to stop you losing your changes.
•• If you later clear the notes in the event, and update the calendar entry at the same time, the calendar entry's notes will be removed, too.
•• If you clear the notes from the calendar entry, then edit the event and turn on the switch, regardless of what is in the event's notes, they will be saved to the calendar entry (including empty notes).

• Calendar entries have an id stored in the URL field. This is how the app knows which calendar event is which. You're free to delete that url, but that'll break the link between the app event and the calendar entry.
•• If you tap the URL in a calendar entry, it will open that event in When's That.

• If you use When's That on multiple devices and share a calendar, entries added to the calendar show on the other devices, so if you have the same event name on both devices When's That will find that one entry. It's unlikely you will have two events with the same name on the same day and at the same time, but created on two different devices, so this should be fine.

I know it's a lot to take in, but I don't want you losing important information.

• Re-jigged the medium widget. The time was sometimes displayed underneath the weather, so this stops that from happening.
• The red alert date banner in the edit event screen wasn't hidden if you changed the alert to something in the past, then back to "At time of event".
• When creating/editing an event and after picking an image, the 'alert before' pickers would sometimes be empty, and the image would sometimes be lost. Someone was emptying an array too early... Someone.
• Searching for events with a specific category didn't work.
• The "My Location" button in the Map view didn't work unless you had "Precise Location" enabled.

Really like but...

Seems to have an issue adding location. Most of the time when trying to add a new event, it says the location is missing and is therefore unsuccessful.
