We have just released CamerAlert for Android version 1.3.4 build 533 into the Android Market. It may take a little while before it becomes active, after which you should now be able to upgrade the application through Market and benefit from the new features and bug fixes we have implemented.

Changes for Android 533 follow:

New Functionality
added support for the Parrot Asteroid
Separate volume control for warnings in ‘Advanced Settings’
Stop location updates if not moved more then 20m in 10 minutes whilst not on the main screen
Changed the inactivity speed threshold
Allow CamerAlert to be controlled by car dock events
General code changes to improve reliability and speed

Bug Fixes
Fix where decimal point on KM was out by factor of 10.
Fix where preferences were not properly initialised.
Fix where there could be a crash if the database is empty when adding a camera.
Changed Redlights with unknown speed to be announced as Redlight, not “Redlight unknown speed”

I've just purchased CameraAlert for Android & the installation & database download all went smoothly but when I try to upgrade to the latest version I get:

Package file was not signed correctly

& the upgrade terminates, any suggestions?

Sounds like the Market is playing up...

You could either try later in the day to see if it has resolved or maybe reset the phone (complete power off and turn back on).

Also make sure the date/time are correct on the phone etc.

Cheers, I've tried 'power off' & rebooted about 6 times but with the same result each time so I'll leave it till this evening & try again

No amount of installing resetting & rebooting made any difference but I have a result for anyone having the same problem:-

Open Market & select CameraAlert upgrade but don't actually set it going - leave the page open &

Flip to Settings / Applications & uninstall the old version of CameraAlert

Flip back to the Market / Upgrade screen & set it going.

Result is a clean install of v 1.3.4.533



NOTE: All this is assuming that the Market continues only to offer the old version for clean installs as it did with me this morning!

I just wondered what the permission "Phone Calls" is used for within this app? The description for this:

"Read Phone State and Identity - Allows the application to access the phone features of the device. An application with this permission can determine the phone number and serial number of this phone, whether a call is active, the number that call is connected to and the like."

Seems particularly intrusive. Could you explain why this is needed.

Thanks

we are reading the phone IMEI (if available) and use that as part of the unique identifier for your device. We are not using the IMEI directly, instead we create a hash from it.

Code:

       final TelephonyManager tm = (TelephonyManager) getApplication().getSystemService(Context.TELEPHONY_SERVICE);
       tmDevice += tm.getDeviceId();
UUID deviceUuid = new UUID(androidId.hashCode(), tmDevice.hashCode());


We do not use any of the other phone functions.
