Please note that after installation, the Troy Oz® Précis application will be available in the applications drawer, from which you can drag its icon to the home screen of your choice. Additionally, the Troy Oz® Précis widget is available in the widgets drawer. The widget has an extra feature within its home screen icon that maintains a numerical representation of the number of price-alert notifications that have been received. (This is similar to the functionality seen in email and chat apps.) If you want your home screen icon to display this information, drag and drop the Troy Oz® Précis widget from the widgets drawer to the home screen of your choice.
During installation, the following permissions will be requested:
Wake Lock permission is required during price alert notifications in order to wake the device up if it is idling in sleep mode. Note that the device is not prevented from going back to sleep once the notification has been displayed.
Read and Write permission to the SD card (external storage). This is required for the saving of charts to the gallery. This application will create a separate directory/album in the gallery called TroyOzCharts, which will contain any charts the user decides to save or share.
Network Access is required for communication to and from the back-end server to get data, charts and price alerts.
Fixed bugs that were causing crashes, usually upon return to app from viewing news articles.
