I’ve released two new version today:
- UltimateFavesPRO 1.0.1 (Available on the blog) with a few little improvements. (See the changelog)
- UltimateFaves 2.0 (Available on the Android) which is basically a stripped down version of the PRO 1.0.1 version, and allows you to create only two carousels.
UltimateFaves2.0 - Isn't it beautiful?
So what’s next?
I’m working on a feature (for UltimateFavesPRO) that will replace that default lock-screen. You will be able to access all your carousels even when the phone is locked (with a new way to unlock your phone). It’s going be great 🙂

Version 1.0 is out on the market. It includes some final improvements, it loads faster, it takes less memory, to give you the best experience for accessing your your favorites on your phone. Look at the change log for more details.
So, what’s next?
I’m starting to work on UltimateFavesPRO now. Like UltimateFaves? You’ll LOVE UltimateFavesPRO. It’s going to bring more carousels, more speed, more graphics, and many more features.

Version 0.9.8 is out on the market and introduces two new features:
Custom carousel names: You can name your carousel according to its content (“Frequently called” “Favorite apps”, “Work stuff”, etc.).
Showing / Hiding the carousel names is configurable (Menu -> Settings -> Show carousel names)
Quick launch widgets: Place widgets on your home screen to launch specific carousels. When the widget is added, a configuration screen is opened, that lets you choose the target carousel for the widget. If you’re thinking that this is not necessary, after all, there are only two carousels, think forward, UltimateFavesPRO is coming soon, with a lot more carousels!

Version 0.9.7 is out on the market and introduces a new feature:
Lightning-fast access: The application is now retained in memory at all times. When you press HOME or BACK, the application is simply moved back in the activity stack but is not removed from memory.
When you launch the application again, the existing application instance is moved to the front of the activity stack, with zero loading time!
Although this is the recommended behavior and gives the best user-experience (after all, UltimateFaves is meant to be used dozens of times throughout the day), it’s configurable via Menu -> Settings -> Advances settings.
The new "Keep in memory" feature
A few small additions (that were actually already present in version 0.9.6) are:
Direct E-mail support – Start an e-mail to a contact with a single click.
Direct SMS support – Start a text message to a contact with a single click.
The freedom of choice 🙂
