The June 2017 release of Road Warrior is a major step forward. More than just a pretty face, we have done a major rehab of the app, so that we a clear roadmap for the future. Over the next few months we will be bringing you several of the most useful and requested exciting new features.
Here are a few highlights of the current release:
The Road Warrior “Raspberry” accent color theme used is now used consistently throughout the app. However, this is far more than just cosmetic makeover. We took great care to accent and highlight the items which actually warrant your attention with a little pop of color. For example, the new “Add Stop” floating action button, selected items, and editing text field all have a splash of color when they need your focus and are muted when they don't.
Visualize More, Click Less
The popup views have been redesigned to show more information. You can now visualize more information with less clickity-clack. Here are just a couple of examples.
Stop View now displays a visual indicator for favorite, violations
Route View displays a progress bar to visualize number of stops complete.
Do More with Data Lists
The data lists have dramatically improved power and functionality. This version enables you to sort, filter, and swipe consistently on each major data list (Routes, Stops, Favorites, Schedules, History). Here are a just a few of the new features added:
Multi-Select rows by clicking on the round icon. This will power several new bulk features which will be added in upcoming releases.
Swipe left to “Edit”.
Swipe right to “delete”.
We are alway striving to improve the UX by making things as simple and clear as possible.
Adding stops to a route via search is the most important and frequent actions. To promote the accessibility of this important function, there is now a big bright red floating action button to further elevate this critical action.
Previously many settings were buried in the general “App Settings”. This new version makes things both easier and more logical by placing settings at their point of use. For example, the Optimize settings are now settable directly on the Get Route screen.
The Get Route screen a more unified location to verify and tweak all settings that effect the route just prior to optimization. For this reason, manual reorder is now available on this screen.
Similarly, Search settings are now accessible at the point of search. We pulled these settings out and placed them more conveniently at their point of use on the actual search screen.
Filtering has been significantly simplified. Added is the powerful feature to filter any stop or favorite by search text filter.
Stops and Favorites are now separately controlled for independent filtering.
Here are some of the filter specific features:
- Full layer filtering of stops or favorites available with “Hide All” option.
- Clear filters available with single click.
- Displays unfiltered item counts.
