Here are I also found another issue, rather big one for me: after a trade is closed it takes quite a while for it to appear in the history. I keep looking to see how a trade from an EA goes, and after it's closed I can't find it in the history. I have to go the myfxbook site to see the outcome. By the time it shows up (sometime hours later) I'm no longer interested.
Also it would be nice to show the trade comment. I have multiple EAs running on my account and I need to see who did what.
These are the 2 reasons for now, for which I still use the myfxbook site from my phone instead of the app.
We just released beta 3! Here is the changelog: [ADD] Trade history to display comments when in landscape mode [ADD] Customized charts - see settings [ADD] Customized live symbols - see settings [FIX] Trade history sorted by close date [FIX] A lot of bugs!
So: yes, there was still a nasty bug with date sorting, it took us a quite long time to find it out, but now it should be OK. Yes, there's a lag when retrieving closed trades. We do believe this comes from a configuration issue on the myfxbook api server. But before we 'open a support case', we have to make sure of it. So tests are in progress.
We already worked a lot on speed improvement but this task is not yet achived: we'll keep on looking for a suitable caching strategy. We don't forget the widget too. Stay tuned! By the way, now we have a webpage, a twitter account and a facebook account so that you can follow us. Links provided on our webpage at www.ooboqoo.com
beta 5 is out and includes long awaited features: - local caching (off by default, check settings) - toggle SSL on/off (off by default, check settings) - feedback feature... so that you can send us emails
SSL API calls are slower than unsecured ones due to protocol handshake and data encryption. Prior beta 5, it was 'on' by default wiithout any ability to disengage it. Now, you might want to override the SSL layer. There's not that much risks. SSL will always be used when login in, so your password remains safe.
You might want to enable the caching feature. Beware, this will display outdated datas while fresh ones will be grabbed. This won't speed up large grid rendering. Cache, as we use it, stores responses from webservices, not serialized Android objects... for now. You should get a better experience about caching when SSL is 'on'.
Some of you noticed an issue displaying graphs on fxtraq two days ago. Well... as you probably read on this forum, this was due to a server upgrade @myfxbook. Ethan solved it, we're back on track.
It's been a while since we last post here. By time of writing, fxtraq should be available worldwide (or at least in the process of getting available worldwide). We'll keep on working on v1 to release it as soon as it will be stable enough :-) v2 will include a widget and JB support (incl. tablets). We plan to release first beta by this summer. We know it seems to be in a quite long time: that's the price of free software...
