Hamfinder 1.2 released!

I've recently done yet another significant upgrade to Ham Finder, and I thought I'd let you all in as to what's changed with the latest version, and give you a sneak peak as to what will be changing soon.

The biggest difference with the newest build is that I've started to work on the Log Book to make it more user friendly. It still has some work to be done, but it's definitely a step in the right direction compared to what it used to be.  The input dialog is still the same, just the user's call sign, frequency you made the contact, and a field for what you entered. Now compared to previous versions, you can actually see all of the fields entered. Also, there is now a tab selection mode, which will easily allow you to switch between the location and logbook, and any future mode which may exist.

Future versions will continue to improve on this. One of the features I'm working on right now will allow for user customization, including selecting which columns will appear, and in which order. In addition, the app will be better formatted for Tablets, as things are right now, it looks poor on a 7 inch tablet, and even worse on a 10 inch tablet. There was a major redesign in the code to allow for making a tablet version of the app easier.
