A new NKCCluster release has been released via Google Play on Friday, 31st July.

The focus in this release was usability. Based on users' feedback the application has been de-cluttered and simplified.

Configuration Wizard

Configuration Wizard now uses a simple tabbed interface, where a swipe to the left brings the user to a previous step and a swipe to the right to a next one and thus ensures essential information gets captured with minimal inconvenience.

Spots and Notifications

Spots are now more readable, with fonts that scale depending on screen size.

Notifications are now displayed in the same screen as spots, thus becoming immediately visible as soon as they are received.

Filters

Filters have been moved away from main screen and now exist as a separate menu that opens by touching the icon in the upper left-hand corner or dragging the left edge of the application to the right.

In the "Filters" menu there is one simple switch that enables or disables the filters. Disabling the filters results with all received spots being shown.

Better use of screen area

Instead of wasteful and unsightly large blank areas taking up half a horizontal space both in portrait and landscape, this area is now used for showing the details of a selected spot. On small screens this area can be extended or retracted by dragging it to the left or right of the screen.

XML Lookups

Note: this feature applies only to hamqth.com lookups, users who use other callbooks will still get a browser window with a callbook link open.

The results of the XML lookups are now neatly presented. E-mail or Web links (if given) are also clickable, thus making it possible to email the operator without leaving NKCCluster.

Thanks to sterling efforts of EA4TV and RZ3EM, NKCCluster is now available in Spanish and Russian languages respectively.
