Function Inspector Unlock - Get code for free!

One thing I always wanted to do with Function Inspector PRO is to give it away for free - not in general, but at least to some. This has always been difficult as, to my knowledge, no Android market offers this functionality. The only alternative so far was to send the PRO APK directly to the user which means that the user will not receive any updates and developers give up any control of how many people use this app.
That is why I was glad when I first heard about BoomCodes. The idea is simple: Developers can generate promotion codes, issue it to their users who will then be able to unlock the PRO features. Once the features are synchronized, the app works just like the PRO version; updates will be issued via the market.

So, I published Function Inspector Unlock which will do exactly that! I don't really know yet what I want to do with this in the future, but I could imagine using it for promotion on my Facebook and Google Plus page, rewarding beta testers and translators or offering alternative payment methods.

For now, I will just give it away for free!

The first 5 folks that enter their Email address in the form below will receive a free promotion code for free that will allow them to unlock PRO features at Function Inspector Unlock!

The 5 free codes have been distributed! Thanks to all participants.

Function Inspector 4.0 Release

So now it is done, I finally released Function Inspector 4.0 to Google Play. I don't want to talk a lot of the changes because I already have. My special thanks goes to the beta testers!

Here are to pictures that display the main visual changes: New design, new UI and, finally, a "Help" menu ;)

Function Inspector 4.0 Beta Testing

With this version of Function Inspector 4.0 Beta you will
be able to return directly to this post as well as switch to
the PRO version (must be redone after restart).
I have made some progress after my last post. I have redone the design and User Interface, fixed several bugs and added a Help dialog. More importantly though, I have reorganized the existing code and changed a lot under the hood. There is basically not much that has not changed ;)

Also, I have had some problems in the past with issues that occur only on certain devices, on certain Android versions and so on. It is not that easy for devolopers to make sure that those problems won't occur

That is why I need you to test the Beta version of Function Inspector 4.0! If you have some time and are interested in the new features of Function Inspector, you would do me a great favour if you would install this version on your device and report any issued you may have with this. In the app, you will easily get back to this post in order to receive newer versions or track issues.

This version contains all the features that will be part of Function Inspector 4.0 except for some design elements and translations. If Beta Testing goes well, I will hopefully be able to release this in a few days ;)

Thanks in advance!
