As you might have noticed, QuickHTML hasn’t been updated for a while. For once, this is not because of my laziness. Sometime ago, my laptop died, and I lost all my data, including the Android certificate used to sign applications. Google Play does not allow the the certificate used for an app to be different from the certificate used for updates. This essentially forbids me from releasing updates to QuickHTML.
English translation: the present version is the final release of the app. I’m sorry! I’ve received several mails from users providing suggestions and improvements, but I can’t work on that. However, QuickHTML will continue to remain on Google Play.
P.S: I’ve learnt my lesson. I keep backups of the certificate used to sign applications developed after the (literal) laptop crash.
Whew! I finally manged to rework this app!
When I first wrote QuickHTML, I was very new to Android development. The code used in it was unoptimized, memory-inefficient and buggy! Any updates made to the app, based on user requests, mainly, were akin to putting lipstick on a pig. :)
But recently, I got myself to begin from scratch and rewrite the whole app, making a conscious effort to be efficient with resources. It also has an integrated file manager!
Here are some notable features:
- Rapid file access – The new version uses an upgraded method of file access, making it faster, even for large HTML files.
- Move to SD card support for Android 2.2+ devices
- Updated UI – Fully customizable! Go ahead and relocate the tag buttons below the text box, if that’s where you’d like them. Don’t like too many buttons cluttering your HTML editor screen? Use the new ‘Minimal’ mode!
- Clipboard slots – Now store frequently used lines of code in ten clipboard slots. The path of the file is also available as a clipboard slot for quick insertion.
- Project structure – The new version relies on an IDE [Integrated Development Environment]-like project structure to store files. Newly created projects come with two folders, ‘src’ and ‘assets’, to hold your HTML and other media files, respectively.
As before, QuickHTML continues to ship with its own HTML reference guide, for quick access to the usage details of various HTML tags. QuickHTML also has intrinsic support for HTML5 development.
Feature suggestions and criticism are always welcome. Use the ‘Feedback’ button in the app to contact me. Thank you!
There’s a new update for QuickHTML on the Market!
