Yes, I think it possible.

I port this app to SailFish OS, so i think that i can realise your issue in next app version for MeeGo and SailFish.

I think you did not bump version number in package.

No update was found automatically and after installing 0.0.2 manually it was still showing it is installing 0.0.1 ("About" page shows v 0.1a as well)

It is useful (simple)
but I totally don't know the url functions formatter.....

Additionally,it will do more if you can provide a text box where user can input a command which will be execute when update_location_btn is pressed .

I am trying you application. Apparently, it does not save my URL defined in Callback Settings.

Is it working?

Thx for comment.

Callback settings are saved when you click "submit" button on the virtual keyboard.
In the near future I will add a function to save parameters when the focus changes.

Thank you for answering.

It worked. But then I had trouble setting the value for "Update Interval". Finally, I did it.

Now the problem is the app does not call my URL. Is there any way to check it?

Thanks again.

Epic fail :)

Fixed in 0.0.2 version

Thanks. Now it is almost perfect. ;-)

The only problem that I find is if I set an update interval of 120 minutes, for instance. The app fixes a location, sends it to my server and the GPS stays connected until the next update, in 120 minutes. This behaviour drains the battery fast. 

Would it be possible to stop the GPS after sending the data to the server and activating it again acording to the defined update interval?
