    Update is available from the App Store now!

    I am away from my system at the moment, but I will test it as soon as I can.

    Thanks

    It is, indeed!

    Please update your WifiRemote plugin to version 0.4, you can now sort, hide and rename your plugins in setup!


    New in CouchPotato 1.2:
    • Status display on now playing view
    • Now playing view updates according to MediaPortal
    • Swipe with two fingers left and right to change channels
    • Pinch when player not in fullscreen mode to go to home


    Changed in CouchPotato 1.2:
    • Optimized gestures: tap -> ok, double tap -> back, two finger tap -> play/pause, two finger double tap -> stop
    • You can now tap the progress bar anywhere to change player position
    • (Hopefully) optimized gesture recognition


    Fixed in CouchPotato 1.2:
    • Hide/show toolbar with two-finger-swipe up/down now also working on remote view
    • Ok and back gestures didn't work in fullscreen player mode
    • Taps on gesture area sometimes triggered remote buttons
    • Fixed some small bugs

    hmmm, this sounds like a major upgrade again.. Well done! :d

    I can't test it only, because my iphone is to the store, because the display was damaged :(

    Hopefully I can test this soon! :)

    Thanks a lot..

    Yeah I think it's the week of failing hardware ... my homeserver died on me and also had to reset the iPhone (that was my on fault, though :D). Hope you get a new device soon!


    One quick note regarding reviews (looking at you, Patrick W. ;)):
    If you have problems with the app pleeeeease contact me through email (support at couchpotatoapp.net), twitter (@MePoCouchPotato) or here before leaving one star reviews! I can't respond to those and therefore can't help you this way!

    Hi Shukuyen, this looks amazing and once again puts MePo at the top of the homebrew and pro market - well done!! I will be using this with an iPad, but have an iTouch I could use it now - will the iPad version be a seperate purchase through the app store or just an upgrade?

    Hi mkjustuk,

    I will convert the app to universal once the iPad layout is done, so this will be a normal update, no extra app.
    Please note that there is still lots of work to do before the iPad layout is done. It will take a while until the update is ready but rest assured that this is one of the two really big points on my roadmap and it will eventually be done.

    Thanks,
    Shukuyen.

    Hi Shukuyen

    I thought I would give you my thoughts on 1.2 of couchpotato with reference to my earlier feedback on 1.1:

    The new gestures are really brilliant. I know they are more complicated, but it means that it now works with all scenarios. The way the up/down/left/right gestures continue to work on the button screen is a really nice feature and allow the remote to be used with far less looking down at the buttons!

    It is much easier now! Thanks

    This isn't working yet, but I know you said this was more difficult to do, so I assume this is on your "to do list" :D

    When pressing the home button whilst watching TV, this seems to take the screen back to the TV Main Menu rather than Home, but it goes to Home from other scenarios. I have not fully tested this yet, and although far better than before, it still doesn't seem to go to the Home screen in all cases.

    Working perfectly now!

    No longer a problem

    Much much easier to move and drop now!

    On your "to do list" too :D

    Also now working really nicely! I love the way you can tap on the album art and that if you have a playlist playing, the album art updates on the iPhone screen, this is a really nice touch! If there is one area for improvement, it would be for the shape of the album art to be detected as currently the artwork is stretched or cropped to fit within DVD cover shape/size. This distorts the music cover art and does not give a perfect look.

    Also now working!



    Overall, this is a very very good update and makes the remote completely usable as a day to day remote! Good work. :D

    If I were you, I wouldn't bother with the iPad update and would continue working on the iPhone updates only - but then I can't afford an iPad :p

    hey man a quick question / request (if its not added)

    is there any way to control the mouse as in many other iphone apps (hipporemote, airmouse) ? thing is, i usually use firefox when i need to browse on my htpc, currently im using a dinovo mini keyboard + integraged mouse so its not a problem. but i want to fully switch to using couch potato from now on, and without this feature it will be pretty hard or impossible.

    or maybe some better way to interface with the webbrowser plugin of MP. it uses numbers to select the hyperlinks so maybe a special screen with some more accessible numbers?

    let me know.

    pd: any other alternate ideas to browse are also accepted if anyone can think of them.
