24th August 2012 HAC v1.15 released for Windows
This update has added 48 new commands covering areas such as database, notifications, full screen mode, encryption, extra string functions and network. It also includes memory/performance improvements and bug fixes.
SQLite database functionality has been added. For those who aren't familiar with SQLite databases, these commands make it somewhat easier to work on Android databases. Note, learning a bit about SQLite will make it much easier to develop database apps. Keep a look out for our forthcoming "How To" on Android databases.
Notifications have been added so allowing the app to attract the users attention. This is especially useful when the app is in the background. Both the default device sound and custom sounds are supported.
Full screen mode is now supported so that the app can hide/show the status bar or menu bar(as some users call it).
Information can now be encrypted/decrypted using AES 128.
Extra functions inlcude Base64, Bitwise, TryInteger.
Toast Messages can now be displayed to give visual feedback to the user.
A url and its web page can now be loaded into a string without the need for the user to save it to a file as was required by the earlier commands.
