HAC v1.16 with RSS news reading

HAC v1.16 released for Windows (2nd November 2012 )

This update adds parsing of News Feeds(RSS), transparent fields plus better debugging during HAC startup. There are also some memory usage improvements and some minor bug fixes.

The News Feed functionality supports both RSS and Atom formats. It also allows feeds from both URLs and files to be parsed. It can cope with huge feeds and allows the user to skip unwanted articles and just store the sequence they need.

The HAC startup debugging makes it much easier for users with installation problems to find out where the problem is.

For further details see the release notes accompanying HAC and the posts listed in our forums.

HAC apps can run on Android OS API 1.6 up to the latest 4.1 (Jelly Bean).

HAC v1.13 with Kindle Fire update

HAC v1.13 released for Windows (17th Mar 2012 )

This update brings many improvements to HAC and HAC created apps running on both standard Android devices and Amazon’s Kindle Fire.

The Persistant Storage option now works. This allows an app upon quitting to automatically save all its variables/fields so that on restarting they can be automatically reloaded thus saving the programmer a lot of work.

There are some major improvements including fixing screen orientation, better detection of status bar height plus several bug fixes.

Extra functionality include 4 new functions for fast array searching and 30 commands/functions for operating on Binary files.

Improvements directed at the Kindle fire include better use of its screen area and the ability to use up to 800×800 icons for the carousel. Also apps are now fully refreshed after being sent to the background such as might happen when the user activated another app or pressed the Home or Back buttons on the Options Bar.

HAC v1.12 with Easy Installer

This update greatly simplifies the installation of HAC and the Android SDK. It also adds some improvements and bug fixes.
HAC users now have the option of using an Easy Installer that can set up HAC and a basic Android SDK in 10 minutes or less depending upon the user’s internet connection speed.

Improvements
During HAC’s first and subsequent runs it is now better at finding the paths to the Android SDK.
A new menu option “Android Emulators” now makes it easier to set up Emulators (also called AVDs).
An important bug has been fixed for non-English Windows systems that affected signing apps with a Private Key.

HAC Installers
As mentioned above there are now two installers available for HAC.
The previous HAC Installer (now called Standard) required the user to either have the Android SDK already setup or to install it themselves. For beginner programers setting up the Android SDK can be daunting as it has many options and can take a few hours to download and fully install.

(1) Standard Installer is about 14MB in size and just installs HAC.
This should be used if you already have the Android SDK installed in your Program Files directory, you are happy with your current Android SDK installation or you are confident in your ability to install the Android SDK.

(2) Easy Installer is about 140MB in size and installs both HAC and a basic Android SDK.
It should be used if the Android SDK is not already installed and you want to get HAC running as quickly as possible. The Android SDK installed by this Easy Installer just installs API 9 (Gingerbread) but can be updated to include the latest or even older APIs.

For further details see the release notes accompanying HAC and the posts listed in our forums.

HAC v1.11 Runs On Even More Devices

This update improves HAC’s ability to build Android apps for a wider range of emulators and devices. We tested a variety of apps on the 12 most important Android emulator versions and ensured that they all ran correctly.

It also fixes a bug that prevented apps running on Android 2.3.3 and a bug that prevented menu icons from showing.

For the tests the following programs were successfully run on all the main emulators as listed below:-

* Hello World
* PreSchool Sums
* Solar System
* Lunar Lander

Emulators:-
Target  API
1.6          4
2.0         5
2.01       6
2.1          7
2.2         8
2.31       9
2.33      10
3.00      11
3.10      12
3.20      13
4.00      14
4.03      15
