Hi all,
Just a heads up that I've released a new version to the Google Play beta testing group, v2.10.0.

This is mostly a modernization of the app to comply with Google latest policies surrounding targeting newer versions of Android:

The two new features that will be visible to users are:
* Options to hide all alerts - New menu option to hide all alerts for a stop in one tap, and a new Settings option to hide all alerts by default.
* Italian translation - Thanks Eleonora Fabbri!

It may take a day or two for Google to approve this and it to become available to the beta testing group.


Thanks,
Sean

I should add that any testing of normal OBA features would be appreciated, especially arrival and destination reminders. App modernization means re-implementing certain things and it's possible they can break on certain Android devices in the process.

So please let me know if you see anything strange.

Hi all,
A heads up for those that have been helping with testing the opt-in travel behavior data collection feature - in OBA Android v2.10.1 that is rolling out to production now I've added a new "Settings->Advanced->Push Firebase data to server" button that should help with forcing devices to sync travel behavior data that they've collected to the server. 

If you're going to analyze data the next day, I'd suggest using this nightly to force the sync of data in place of the previous protocol of opening the app and selecting bus stops to trigger Internet access, as it should be more reliable.
