SMS Bot Widget V2.60 released

I have just released SMS Bot Widget version 2.60 to the Google Play Store. This release includes:

  • Privacy policy link
  • New theme
  • Only Android 2.3+ supported (Android 1.5-2.2 support dropped)
  • Widget count reduced to one resizeable version on Android 3.1+
  • Improved widget loading on reboot

Dropping support for the ancient Android versions let me remove a lot of legacy code from the app, simplifying it. I think Android 2.3 is a very reasonable minimum in 2017! I also realised that having 3 different widget versions for Android 3.1+ was redundant. Having one resizeable widget simplifies things. However, existing 1×1 and 2×1 widgets already on home screens will need to be re-created.



SMS Bot Widget Privacy Policy

I have created a privacy policy for SMS Bot Widget here. As the app uses contacts and phone state permissions Google requires that there is a privacy policy available in the Play Store and the app itself. I have updated the Play Store listing today and will issue an app update soon.
