Change Log

Version 1.6.0
=============
I've a got a hint at meaning of the word "fap" in English slang. 
So I have decided to rename the app to "LAppSter - Launch Apps Faster". 
The package name net.inweb30.fappster will stay the same for a while to avoid the reinstall of the app.
So don't worry if you see LAppSter on your device - it is still the same app.

Version 1.5.0
=============
Bugfix:
- ListView-OnScrolling crash and In-App-Billing errors
Added:
- a new widget, which does not need much place in launcher (1x1 size), and is implemented as a minimizable floating panel (needs the new permission SYSTEM_ALERT_WINDOW)
- buttons in the left area allow to switch between different views: all sorted, recently started and most started apps
- conversion of non-ASCII characters to ASCII-characters for Portuguese and French
Changed:
- apps will be sorted by localized labels, which has been converted to ASCII (new app scan must be started first)
- the unpopular "Donation"-Button has been replaced by AdMob
- away from BugSense to CouchDB-based Acralyzer

Version 1.4.0
=============
Added:
- a new keyboard, optimized for one-hand input on large devices
- support of the hardware keyboard for app searching
- a new view for app details, which contains a link to market, live process informations, manual/automatical tags and possibility to stop the background processes
- a new view for editing of manual tags. The manual tags are primarily regarded on search requests.
- the settings panel with new options for QWERTZ-keyboard and forwarding to home screen after some app has been started from FAppSter
- the "What is new" view shows the last modifications
- groups at Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and VK have been created and linked from the app
- a new view for donations. Now it is possible to support the developer and donate some bread
Changed:

Version 1.3.1
=============
Bugfix:
- crash, caused by DatabaseHelper on Android 2.3.x, will be caught now
- crash, caused by the concurrent threads during UI update, should be caught now 
  (could not reproduce the error, so made some changes based on ACRA data)
Added:
- conversion of non-ASCII characters to ASCII-characters for non-English words as keywords:
  Italian: à->a; è,é->e; í,ì,î->i; ò->o; ú,ù->u
- some users do no updates of the app and I get reports of already fixed bugs from old versions. 
  All future versions will be runnable only for one or two months and must be updated after this time to the new version.
Changed:

- FAppSter is not more listed in the category "Tools", but moved to category "Productivity"

Version 1.3.0

Changed:
- improved the graphical user interface
