Keep Calm Pro v1.2

Earlier today I launched the third update to Keep Calm Pro since its initial release which brings the app up to version 1.2. This new update officially introduces 100 icons (which brings the total up to 150 icons). Whilst these were technically introduced in version 1.1.5 there were a number of bugs in this version that I hadn’t considered so therefore this new version fixes these bugs.
The most peculiar bug that I had to fix was that on some devices the app was not correctly loading images from the phone’s Gallery app. Thankfully I was able to fix this bug (if anyone is interested it was a threading issue) and I have therefore improved the the way that images are loaded better so that the look great heading the poster.

Updates to Keep Calm and Keep Calm Pro

I have made a few improvements to Keep Calm and Keep Calm Pro for Android. The key improvement that has been made is that the app is now fully multi-threaded which means it is a lot less likely to crash (I am ashamed to say that, yes, everything had been running in the UI thread before – oops).

Both apps now include PT Sans as the default font and Keep Calm Pro now allows you to choose between Open Sans, Open Sans Light (which used to be the default), PT Sans and the standard system font. I chose PT Sans because it matches the original font quite well. A less major modification that has been made to both apps is the change of the background color :).

In response to comments I have also added a new option to Keep Calm that allows you to use the old designer. This feature has not been added to Keep Calm Pro as it would have made it far too complex and I believe the menu/sub-menu system that it currently uses is far more efficient.

New Android app: Keep Calm Pro

It’s been just over two months since I originally published Keep Calm on Google Play and the time has come to upgrade it to introduce new exciting features. Keep Calm Pro is now officially available and introduces the following new exclusive features:

  • Updated rendering engine so that text always appears on the poster and so that it appears at the maximum size possible
  • New menu that makes the app easier to use and reduces time between loading the app and saving/sharing the finished poster
  • The option to use the standard sans-serif font or Open Sans Light
  • Change the text color
  • Change the icon to one of 50 included icons or any image from the your Gallery which is automatically resized, cropped and recolored so that it looks great at the top of the poster
  • Change the background color and choose whether it is a solid color, linear gradient or radial gradient
  • Change the background to an image of your choice from your Gallery
  • Improved wallpaper rendering for higher quality

Unfortunately camera integration didn’t work too well initially so in version 1.0 you will need to select the ‘Gallery’ option before pressing ‘Menu’ which then gives you the option to take a new photo.

Keep Calm Pro is by far the best Keep Calm and Carry On app available for Android at just 50p/99c.
