Incoming!

It is about time the developer of this application updates this blog.
Evanova is moving forward. As mentioned previously, an update is on the way but not there yet (in a few ..ahem...days...weeks...). There has been a lot of changes on the Eve Online front, mostly regarding API keys, and that caused an increase of pain reliever sells at the local pharmacy. But let me introduce you to new features:

 

New Api Keys

Evanova now fully supports the new API key system and its customization. You will be able to view your credentials as if you were on the Eve API keys page. The Accounts view has been revamped to that affect and offers new options. You will also be able to import your API keys by scanning them from Evanova's QR code page.

Items Database

With popular demand comes increased usage of your device's storage space. Evanova now includes an item database which you can freely browse through.
Be aware that this feature will ultimately require about 20Mb of free space on your device. You may move Evanova to your SD card if your device supports it, but you will not be able to use the widgets in this case (an Android limitation which makes sense from a dev point of view).

That's my ship!

Full item description is also included in the items database. You can browse through all categories or hit the search icon to find a specific item.

I spent too much

At last! Pilots Wallet journal and transactions are now available. Switch from your wallet journal or transactions with a press on the title.

Did I mention a widget?

I must have...A basic widget it is. It will be improved!
Please keep in mind that the widget will not be available if you move Evanova to your SD card.
 

On the Corporation side

The current corporation screen will get a face lift too. Although the upcoming version will not have support for what menu buttons promise, features will come soon after.
The new screens will behave pretty much the same way as the pilot screens do. There will be a corporation list, a gallery and an individual corporation view.
Here, have a preview (feedback welcomed):

How about tablets?

A new API Keys tab has been added from which you can manage your keys, corporations and pilots, and the Items database has been added to the Evanopedia tab. All features described above are of course available on tablets. Here's an item detail:

In addition to the above screen shots, expect improvements in the mail and notification area...And many other things that aren't visible ;-)
