feedback: not all EUR countries on the top of the list with other EUR countries. Missing Andora, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania in comparison with webpage.
Right thanks.
Will adopt this for the next version.

For diagnostics purposes, it would be nice if the app had the version number in its user agent string. At the moment it seems to present itself as iEBT/2, regardless of the version.

Should work fine with iOS 11 now, also it'll use "https" for all connections to "eurobilltracker.com".
Great!
It now works.
Thanks!

I'll fix that as well.

I may have spotted a small glitch since the latest update.

After entering notes in iEBT, i'll upload them one by one to get more entries in the hours-minutes-seconds bingo game.

It has happened multiple times now that iEBT sends a note to the EBT database (line with the note turns dark grey, without any error), but after checking with EBT the note has never been uploaded. First I thought it was some kind of connection problem from my side, but it has happened multiple times now regardless whether I'm on a wifi connection or on mobile 3G/4G connection.
When I enter 20 notes in iEBT about 16 or 17 will be uploaded to the EBT server and the other 3 or 4 will get lost. Never experienced this issue with previous versions of the app. Someone else with the same experience?

Exxxx2066xxx, Nxxxx0692xxx, Vxxxx9091xxx that you tried to enter today at around 18:22-18:23 your time were rejected because the serial numbers were invalid (they did not pass the checksum test). The logs don't show which error code EBT sent to iEBT in this case, but based on some testing it was likely 8 (bad serial).

You should not make errors while entering those notes to iEBT, and iEBT should catch those errors, at the latest when the note gets submitted to EBT.

Thanks Avij,

Now I see the culprit. The checksum checkbox in the app was off, that's when mistakes happen obviously. I turned it on now. Good to know it's my error instead of the apps one.

Right, but the app should still notice that there was a problem submitting the notes. The API documentation says that "Every error (i.e. status > 1) is fatal, meaning the note was not entered" and I think the app should notify the user somehow in cases like these.

It’s still not available, and I am worried some iOS update could break it.
I’m afraid our developer is not aware of it. I’ll send them an email.

Yes please bring back that app. I would be very sad if it would be gone for good.

Do you mean Apple pulled it and you don't know why?
I understand dealing with the AppStore is a bit of a pain, and something like this may happen from time to time.
Just a little proactivity in letting your users know may be in order :wink:

Cheers!
