    Known Issues – Open

  • android.runtime.JavaProxyThrowable exception reported on an Android 12 (SDK 31) device, with the v1.0.0 release. The problem occurred at the time the high level map coordinate calculation was taking place after entering a club’s General Information page. So far unable to reproduce the problem. Continuing to investigate. (13-Aug)
  • Single occurrence in v0.2.8-beta release of “Input dispatching timed out – Application Not Responding” with Google Intel Gemini Lake Chromebook Android 11 (SDK 30). Possibly due to slower device. Start-up asset and map file copying optimised and moved to background thread in V1.0.0 to potentially fix this.
  • Authentication related issue reported by Google’s testing with Sharp AQUOS sense2 SH-01L Android 9 (SDK 28) device. Failure also reported by a third party so not being considered an app issue at this time.
  • Known Issues – Closed

  • Rapid repeated ground selection in v0.2.8-beta release can result in duplicate map pages. The only impact to the user is that they will have to backup twice from the repeated map pages. Fixed in the v1.0.0 release.
  • Future Enhancements Being Considered
    – Add clubs’ Scottish Cup and League Cup results
    – Highlight selected club in the play-off results
    – Generate tiles from other NLS maps for a more accurate ground period
