Update 1.22: What's next?

Hi there!

This post is a continuation of our release announcement of update 1.21. Read it first to learn about our latest features.

We were not in contact for really long time since release 1.20, so today I want to share with you on my thoughts about the future features for "Bind Mi Band".
Firstly, this wasn't right that it took so much time to make an update from the previous release. That's why I believe that next updates should be more granular and more often. Another thing is that it's better to work on one thing at a time. But there are so many of them! And you will help me to choose what to do!


Further, you will find a poll where you can leave your vote and share your opinion on what should be done next.

"Bind Mi Band" Update 1.21

Hello!

It's great to be back here and announce about the new update of Bind Mi Band which we were preparing during last weeks.



Read below about new and improved things in this update.

Learning programming in C# has never been this fun!

Hi there!

One of my friends is working hard on his educational project and asked me to promote it to the readers of this blog. I believe that some of you may find it interesting since sometimes I receive questions about how to start programming in C# for Windows. Here is a way!

Codeasy.net is an interactive platform for learning to programme in C# for beginners. In a form of a science-fiction story, you will learn new things and will gradually master C# language and basics of programming. No prior programming experience is needed!

Windows Insider Preview 10.0.15007 Information

Hello there!

There is a big hype around latest Insider Preview for Windows Mobile. We get a lot of emails and comments about that and want to clarify couple things.



  1. There are connectivity issues on some devices.
    We haven't investigated that, but if the app works for you on a stable build and stops on Preview, this means that the issue is in OS update. This happened before and not once, so we believe that Microsoft will fix the problem soon, but this can take from a week to couple months. They have to do this anyway, for the sake of backward compatibility :)
    Reminding again: you are using Insider Preview builds on your own risk. Please, send complaints to Microsoft.
  2. GATT Server API was introduced in this build.
    Is it useful for us? Can't say sure, but, probably, no. We already can send notifications to the band with existing APIs.
    The idea behind GATT Server API is that band might become able to send notifications back to the phone/PC. AFAIK, Mi Band doesn't do this. Saying other words, Xiaomi should implement support for this on a hardware side first.
    If you possess some specific info regarding Mi Band and GATT Server, let us know.


If you read the post twice and something is still not clear, feel free to contact support.

See you soon!
