TrackChecker For Android
Color labels and digits are an indicators of parcels "age". The number is the counter of days since the first event on the item appeared.
The colors show the stages (by default):
- GREEN - from 15 to 30 days have passed (stage 1).
- YELLOW - from 31 to 40 days have passed. During this period most parcels come (stage 2).
- RED - more than 40 days have passed, it's time to open a dispute if parcel does not come still (stage 3).
Use the "multi-select". It's available with long tap on one of the tracks, select the tracks you want and tap the "Refresh" icon.
You can update one track from the track events view by swipe down (skipping of the services with the Captcha depends on the selected mode).
At first, App wait for a given period (for example 1 hour). If there was no Internet after that period, the program will launch the update at the first opportunity. And after a successful test, it will again stand on the waiting period.
So scheduled events update does not mean that there must be an Internet at certain times. The scan interval is the minimum time that an update can occur (ie, the check is not more often than the interval set, but if the time exceeds this time, the program seeks to perform a successful check as soon as possible).
From version v2.19.10 App supports paid service Anti-captcha.com (ex.anti-gate.com).To make App works with service you should to:
- Register at anti-captcha.com, and get access key and replenish account balance.
- In App at menu "Options" -> "Services" -> "Antigate options" -> Enter access key.
If everything is correct, when you click Check Balance, you will get information about your account balance.
At TrackChecker, start export DB from settings (first item - Export DB). In folder TrackChecker on card (/sdcard/) will be created file TrackCheckerDB.backup.
At TrackChecker Mobile, select menu item "Settings" – "Data backup" – "Restore from TrackChecker 1" (available if there is a file: /sdcard/TrackChecker/TrackCheckerDB.backup).
All events the program takes from the servers of the post services selected by you for each track.
At first, check that there is information about your track on the sites of those postal services that you have selected. To do this, enter the multi-select mode (long tap on the track), enter the context menu (3 points), "Open the track on the website..." and select the service you are interested in.
The page of the selected post service will be loaded in the opened window. The track number will be copied to the clipboard automatically. Find the field for entering the track number on the website of the post service and hold the finger on it, and then select "Insert" from the appeared menu. Then click on the check button.
You can repeat this operation for each service in the track being checked.
If your track info is on post service site but not retrieved by the application, contact us and send the post service and track number for which the info was not recieved by the application. To the next version, we will try to fix the that post service in App.
Also the situation is possible if you chose wrong post services for your tracks. To correct this, contact the sender of the parcel and sget the exact name of the post service. After that, adjust the list of post services for the track.
The program only reads the sites of post services, it does not deal with the translation of statuses "on the fly".But there are three type of event translations in App:
- Paid translation pack to translate 100 events text. We need to pay for access to MS Translator API, that is used for user translations in app by default, so we need to get some revenue from users to make it less costly for us.
- Free translation with external Google Translate application.
- Free translation with your own subscription key on Microsoft Translator, you need to create account on Microsoft Azure, then activate MS Translator free 2 billion chars translation pack, get your API access key and paste this key in app preferences.
You can translate the text of events by tap (click) on the event (from original event's language to the current language of the program interface).
Often, post services change the format of the provided data, or new post services are added.
For automaticall update services in App, just switch on following option in menu: "Settings" -> "Postal Services" -> "Auto update postal services". You can also tap on "Check for services updates now."
If, for some reason, auto update does not work, you can go to News section of Forum on this site, and download the services.dat.new file, and then copy it to following folder: "/sdcard/TrackChecker_Mobile". After that, App should be restarted to apply the update of service descriptions. If services are successfully updated, the services.dat.new file should disappear from folder "/sdcard/TrackChecker_Mobile".
Since version v2.19.10, you just may tap on the downloaded services.dat.new file.
On some devices (especially Chinese) or Android versions, the TrackChecker Mobile application can not work in the background (sleep) mode. Select the "Wake up device" checkbox here "Settings" -> "Events updating", to output the device from the "sleep" mode, when updating events after a set period of time.
For Andorid 7.0 and higher, you also need to allow the application to work in the background in the Android system settings.
