I haven't tried doing the HOME mode again yet, but a lot of quirkiness and odd crashes may have been caused by my program optimizer. Now that I have a faster phone I don't think I need to squeeze out every last millisecond. Not really sure why the optimizer was causing problems unless it messes with the HTML.OPEN/CLOSE timing issues.
Thanks Nicolas! I finally figured out that I really need to shoot for a 500 calorie deficit every day... 200 by dieting (mostly low carb) and 300 by exercise.. seems to work.. Been doing physical therapy for my back and really felt good today. I am still about 5'10 and 205lbs but my muscle tone and energy are starting to get pretty good.
I like Google Play's new method of tracking Active Installs which is probably more accurate: 169 disciples so far!
If I ever get really ambitious I might try to link my app into Nutritionix's nutritional database... They gave me a complimentary link to their developer API but I am not sure how hard it would be to implement it. Their Track app is pretty slick but they don't have the shortcuts that mine does, plus you have to have a data plan to use it effectively. I dumped the data plan on my smartphone about 2 months ago and don't really miss it since there is a lot of free WiFi around here.
personally i think people who want to lose weight can do it however they want, unless they use unhealthy methods like excessive fasting or chemicals. losing weight isn't a thing you can do without careful planning and research.
Uploaded newest version to Paul's ftp and still using it myself.
Newest changes are :
I added red and green colors to the bar graphs to spot above below averages... This is kind of handy for seeing trends of a couple days. (Sorry my code is rather ugly since I do most of it in spare snippets of time on my phone and haven't had time to make it more readable.)
I made the reminder banner accept multiple lines which it randomly displays each time something happens in the app. This is really great for those little diet and behavioral factoids that you constantly have to remind yourself of. You can even cut and paste short inspirational quotes into it as long as they are one line.
I still have an odd problem with the app locking up unpredictably with a blank black screen... I can't seem to figure out if it is crashing when it is exiting or when it is starting but added a log() function to timestamp app events. The odd thing is that everything seems to be working fine in the logs but it still seems to hang every now and then. One possibility that I haven't fully checked out yet is that there might be an ONERROR: condition that isn't being handled right or there is some other odd timing problem.
As far as my own diet goes, I was in a big slump and pretty sick over Christmas but found out that taking an over-the-counter brand name probiotic helped a huge amount. I have read that dieting tends to change your microbiome and that some scientists think that the homeostasis of being overweight is maintained by bad gut bacteria. I think that could be quite true since I feel much better and am back on track again. The other change I made was burning 500 calories a day through walking (mostly caregiving) instead of the mere 300 which wasn't doing much good.
