Hi Monument team,
I just fetched my device from customs office yesterday and started looking at the forums while I gained some first experience with the little box.
Seems like I was lucky by getting it with quite some delay, so I didn't suffer any real showstopper issues in the first hours. Besides from the fact, that my connected HDMI monitor didn't show anything so far, the initial update and setup went smoothly. I figured the HDMI was simply not done yet when looking at the timetable ...
The hickups I ran into are already layed out here in the forums in multiple posts/places (e.g. annoyingly inacurate face-recognition, iOS-auto-import stopped multiple times with an "unknown Error" or some other "asset" error but it seemed to pick the import up again after switching off/on the auto import in settings).
But now to the actual things mentioned in the subject:
sorry if i crammed/mixed a few things into that post, but I didnt want to scatter it over multiple places. If you want me to post separate feature requests for the things mentioned I can do that ... if these things are already on your agenda for a future update - thanks, looking forward to it. If i overlooked that requested features are already there somewhere - my apologies.
I admit, I expected a product a bit fitter that what I received (and i agree to the voices about selling it as a ready product on the webpage is a bit bold at this point), but as a kickstarter veteran I'm happy that i have actually received a device that works enough to keep faith in it so far.
keep up the good work.
@Johannes: First and foremost, thanks for the kind words.
> where can i see the version number of the device? would be nice to have some device infos in the app for reference
Monday, there will be a new release. And all that information will be in the settings, including the firmware version.
> i know, dates in timetables are always subject to change, but I'm not sure how to interpret. E.g. some of the features there are timed at "1/9/2017" ... now is that update already out (there was an update on jan 3rd iirc) or is that just slipping a bit?
we are catching up on Monday
> is there something planned about simple editing of photos? (e.g. rotate, crop). I have quite an old DSLR (Pentax K100D) which doesn't automatically correct orientation, so i have lots of photos in the system now that would need to be put upright ...
We will have manual rotation.
> bonus question ... is there any way to see how many fotos have made it onto my monument device so far? iOS photo app gives me a nice short summary like "4096 photos, 406 videos". something like that would be really nice. I'd also like to see some import-summary when an import process has finished
Good suggestion to keep that information visible after import is complete.
