Just a heads up that the latest revision of the iOS app no longer appears to toggle into graph mode when I tilt my iPad (4th gen, iOS 8) sideways. I’ve verified that the orientation lock is off, and I’ve tried a few things to debug including killing the app from the task switcher and restarting the iPad. I noticed that the app now presents as a full-fledged iPad app now instead of running as an iPhone app; I wouldn’t be surprised if that’s related.

Uh oh… that’s good to know, thanks. I added it as an issue in Github.
Do you have an iPhone? If so can you verify that it still works there? I’m testing on an iPhone and it worked for me.

I’ve checked the v1.02 app on an iPod touch with iOS 8 and the rotate-to-graph works – it just isn’t working on the iPad.

Sorry, finally had a chance to commandeer the SO’s iPhone (5s, iOS 8). Graphing all looks good on there.

No it doesn’t work on the Ipad mini either, ios 7.1.1(11D201) very disappointing, without this featuer it’s just a meter. What’s your schedule to fix this major flaw, I cant call it a bug as it’s 50% of the application I would consider this a fail on your software developer and I would expect anyone using an ipad or ipad mini to be returning your meter.

Brian: I can personally attest to the fact that the graphing did work in the original release of the app; I suspect the release that was done to fix iOS 7 compatibility also was modified to support the iPad natively (instead of running it as an iPhone application) and that the graphing mode stopped working as an unintended side-effect.
I would bet that it’s an easy bug to fix (minimally, native support for the iPad could be disabled for the time being and it could go back to running as an iPhone app, which worked quite well) and that one way or another we’ll see it working again very soon.

Hi Brian and Jonathan,
Jonathan covered all the points I would cover. When I uploaded the new build with iOS7 compatibility I also added native iPad compatibility, thinking it would make better use of the larger screen size. But there’s a difference in the way iPod and iPhone handle screen rotation that I didn’t account for, so the app is not receiving the notification to turn on the graph display. All the graphing code is actually still in the iPad build of the app, it’s just not being accessed. Quite frustrating.
I’m working on getting the new build submitted to the app store today, but Apple has a 1-2 week approval process for all new builds. If you wanted to register for the testflight beta program (be sure to register your device as well) I can probably get you a beta sooner.
Sorry for the inconvenience, all the best.

As a back up (back door) have a select graph option in the settings page.
This would be helpful in a high G enviroment where you dont want it flipping back and forth.

I dont have an Iphone that supports this, only an ipad3, ipad4 and an ipad mini.

Forget about the Ipod support, I don’t think your market is in the 14 yr. old female demographic.

That’s a joke, yeah I dont think Ipod is a market for graphing, my feeling for graphing to be useful, you want it on larger device. Just put a selector for it.

Added a button to manually switch between graphing and text views, pushing it soon. It’s a very good idea, thanks.

We really should take up a collection to get you an iPad!

Brian: The app doesn’t find the device at all? Have you swiped down to refresh the list?
Tom: That’s a kind thought, thanks :) I am actually looking to buy one right now to better support this project. But I think the best thing to do would be to continue giving helpful feedback and spreading the word about the meter.
If you’re in the beta testing group, you should have just received an invite to try out a new build of the iOS app. I don’t think this solves the auto-rotation problem, but it has buttons that will manually switch between meter and graph mode, so hopefully that will provide a backup for now while the iPad specific stuff is figured out.

Got 1.3 (48) and “Switch to Graph” works in portrait on the iPad.
(at least lets us “brag” a little)
