Fixed a bug that could cause the app to crash while it was trying to use the handy new caching stuff. Whoops!
The Settings Update! You can now choose which unit to use for each Quick Add, instead of being stuck with one overall, and there’s a whole lot more visual settings to tinker with, for the customizers out there.
The Big List:
- Redesigned the stuff that shows the first time the app runs, it looks nicer now.
- You can now choose which unit to enter your weight in, if it isn’t coming automatically from the Health app.
- There’s a bit more caching going on, so as you open the app throughout the day it’ll have accurate information quicker.
- That lovely background animation is now optional; if you’ve got Reduce Motion on, it’ll be off by default, but if you really miss it, you can turn it back on from the new Display Settings card.
- Showing the goal is optional as well, so if you were feeling overly pressured, you can switch that off.
- Reorganized the settings page to take advantage of the fancy new cards, courtesy of Alexis Aubry; there’s more information in the new ‘About’ card, if you’re curious.
The Animation Update! Swiping from screen to screen is now smoother and the water is no longer frozen but flows smoothly.
- The goal algorithm was a bit over-zealous when you’d been working out, we told it to calm down a bit.
- Added a bit of text to the Settings screen to remind you that this is an app, not a doctor, so please take your health questions to a doctor.
- Fixed a bug that could make the water look a bit wonky if you opened the app while on a phone call and then got hung up on.
- The goal algorithm could get stuck using old information in the mornings; gave it a new alarm clock and coffee maker, it’ll be up to date now.
- The Custom Add page wouldn’t let you use milliliters, it was very determined that everything was in fluid ounces, but it’s now learned how handy the metric system can be.
- Quick Add values of more than 999 (of whatever unit) had Problems; they work properly now.
- Significantly improved support for VoiceOver.
- Under-the-hood changes to make future features possible. No spoilers!
Fixed a bug that could make your Quick Add options shuffle around - thanks to the folks who pointed this out!
If you had exactly met your goal, the screen would still have a bit of un-filled space at the top. That felt very unsatisfying, so now having 100% of your goal will also mean having a 100%-full screen.
The first time you connected Fluidics to Health, it could take a while for it to actually do anything with the new data; now it’s much quicker about that.
Water tracking should be quick and painless. You shouldn’t have to worry about killing a digital tree if you don’t drink enough, or how much more water you need to drink following a workout! Fluidics provides a dead-simple approach to water tracking: As you drink more water, the Fluidics app will fill up with water—just like your body—showing you how much more water you should drink to reach your daily goal. Your daily goal will automatically change based on your activity on any given day, adjusting to your life without you having to give it any thought. Fluidics is elegantly simple and is well-integrated with Apple Health and ready for both iOS 11 and the iPhone X.
