Small update 1.14

Hi!

We are rolling out a small update for Bind Mi Band with version 1.14.0. Actually, it's small only at the first look, but inside we have done big UI refinement work.


1. We have made app more accessible. So now if you change font scaling in system settings, app will  respond and almost all the parts of it will have font scaled. It should be done much earlier, but I hope that now it will be more comfortable to use the app for people with bad sight (like me).


2. Activities feed redesigned to have unified look across all the types of activity (walking, sleeping, running, HR measurement). And, of course, it handles font scaling better.



3. User profile page redesigned. Now there are no more sliders (which everybody hated, actually, including us). As a unified solution, we chose a list picker, similar to system's TimePicker and DatePicker. It's a shame that such nice control is not available for developers, so... we wrote our own. It was quite a challenging task, but we plan to open-source it :)



Now sticking to the plan and going to work on release 1.15.
See you soon!

    1. Me too, but they don't want more. A lot of strings are missing PT-BR translation after the lastest releases.

    1. did you have (or your friends) android device with BT 4.0? unbind your band from WP and connect to android. install Mi Fit app from google store. when you first pair band with Mi Fit, your band will upgrade firmware also... after that unbind from android and connect to WP again.
