Prairie Coordinates release 0.4.2

by on April 4, 2016

After an email complaint about the app crashing when the “search by GPS” screen was loaded, I looked into some of the changes that were introduced with the Android 6.0 platform.

Prairie Coordinates 0.4 release

by on November 2, 2015

During the time I spent as a grad student (mostly not developing for Android), Google changed the way apps were designed and built (instead of using Eclipse, they now have their own Android Studio).
