- To Watch Button.
If your iPhone is paired to an Apple Watch here’s now a button on the Edit List scene that allows you to decide if you want to send that checklist to the Apple Watch. With this feature you don’t have to clutter your watch with checklists you rarely use.
- Apple Watch Synchronization.
The Apple Watch synchronization with the iPhone performs more reliably now and there’s a new scene to let you know when the iPhone is updating the watch data. If the devices get out of sync, there’s a new button after the the checklists on the Watch that allows you to tell the watch to copy the checklists from the iPhone.
When you tap on a list to check off items, there’s now a toolbar at the bottom of the scene. The toolbar contains four buttons. The ?⇔☁️ button lets you synchronize your lists with those backed up on our cloud server. ?➠✔️ clears all the checkmarks off your list so you can reuse the list. The ✔️? | ❌?✔️ button toggles between displaying your checkmarked items and hiding the completed items. Lastly there is an Undo button.
Pilot cList now keeps a history of your checkmarks, swipes, and clears. If you inadvertently checkmark an item or grouped set of items or cleared all your checkmarks, tapping the Undo button will reverse the action. You can repeatedly tap Undo to erase each change made.
- Watch Improvements.
The watch workflow has been improved. Previously, there was a short built-in delay after you checkmark an item to allow you to undo the action before the item disappeared from the screen. Now, with the new Undo feature, the delay has been removed and if you make a mistake you can swipe the screen to the left
to undo the change.
Previously, the swipe left gesture would bring up a menu scene with buttons that allowed you to hide/show checkmarked items, cross out an item instead of checkmarking it, or clear all the checkmarks from a list. These functions are now available as buttons at the bottom of the list or as a menu revealed when you hard press
the watch screen for a couple of seconds.
The action of crossing out an item instead of checkmarking it has been streamlined. If you swipe the screen to the right then tap an item, the item will get crossed out.
- List and Group Order.
You can now order your lists and groups. In previous versions groups and lists were always organized in alphabetical order. Now you can tap Edit to rearrange the order of your lists or groups.
- Apple Watch Support.
When you install Pilot cList on your Apple Watch, your phone synchronizes your checklists with your watch making performing those repetitive task even easier. You can leave your phone in your pocket and breeze through your task list checking off items as you complete them. Pilot cList hides checked items so at a glance you can see what’s the next task to complete.
- Task List Counts.
The main lists scene shows a checkmark with the number of items completed and total items on the task list. This change lets you see what lists have unfinished tasks.
- Add button moved.
Previously, on the edit lists page, the Add button was next to the <Back button at the top left corner of the page. Now Add is on the top right of the page when you are creating a new list and becomes Edit after you’ve created the list. You must tap Add to create the list before any other functions on the screen are activated.
- No more double tap.
We thought accidently tapping a sublist and having the app checkmark or clear all the items under the list could be an inconvienence (particularly if you’ve been packing all day for a trip and accidently marked all the items in the suitcase list when you know the task was only 3/4 finished), so we required you to double tap a sublist line to change all the items contained in that sublist. Now, Pilot cList notes what items are checked and if you tapped the sublist line accidently, you can tap it a second time to restore the item checkmarks thier previous condition.
If you want to clear the checkmarks for a sublist, you can swipe it to the right; this will clear the checkmarks for that sublist. If you swipe a second time, it restores the checkmarks. If you swipe a task line, the app remembers if it was checkmarked. Swiping the task a second time restores it back to its previous state.
One final tweak in this area, crossed out items are no longer counted as completed nor are they included in the total number of items on the list.
- Import old lists.
The website now provides a mechanism to import your old lists formatted as text files into Pilot cList. Go to the website to see details on this feature. If your checklists are saved in spreadsheets and would like the import function to be able to read CSV files, send us an email and we’ll add that feature.
- Checkmark counts weren’t displayed on the title line when you first select a list. You had to checkmark an item to get them to display. Now they appear all the time.
- The changes screen.
Pilot cList shows you what changed the first time you launch the app with a new version. If you want to see the change list again, tap the ❓button on the home screen then select Changes button.
- The ?➠☁️ button (sync) has been added to the main screen toolbar. To synchronize your lists, simply tap this button or swipe down on your list.
- From Apple:Core Data iCloud Deprecation.
As of iOS 10.0; Core Data’s iCloud integration feature has been deprecated. Apps will continue to work. There are no changes to or removal of the functionality in iOS 10. Historically, deprecated symbols remain functional for a considerable period of time before removal. The service pieces are not effected in any way. If and when the deprecated APIs are disabled in some future OS version, applications running on iOS 9 or 10 will continue to work. One in a Million Apps LLC used Apple’s Core Data over iCloud to synchronize lists between devices. We are being proactive and replaced the functionality that Apple will eventually phase out with a new mechanism to sync lists.
- Synchronizing would stop working.
