WhenLast was originally created for the NANY 2015 Event -- you can see the original post about it here:

New beta version uploaded (v1.51) with the ability to enable or disable autosync, plus better and more efficient auto-saving of changes (when in autosync mode, all changes will be automatically saved after a few second delay).
I'd appreciate any testing of these two modes -- I'd like to upload a production version this weekend but with all the rapid changes to these two modes, i would not be surprised if there are some issues to resolve.

Some notes on autosync vs non-autosync modes:

* When autosync checkbox is enabled, changes to your data file are automatically pushed out to dropbox soon after you make them (not immediately so that if you make multiple changes it wont try to push many times); and dropbox api monitors remote changes so they are detected quickly.
* When autosync checkbox is not enabled, nothing will be pushed to dropbox, and no remote dropbox scanning will occur until you use the "Scan Now" menu item.  Only then will changes be pushed and pulled.  One consequence of this *may* be that changes on a remote device might be "discovered" on your first check, but that you will get a message that a download is in progress, and to rescan later.  As of now, this means you have to manually scan again in a few seconds/minutes; I will probably automate that later, but right now i'm erring on the side of leaving things manual in this mode.
* In a future version I might make it possible to switch between auto and manual sync mode based on battery life and/or network connection type (wifi vs cellular).
* Even in autosync mode, if the app is minimized, it will NOT check for sync updates. In general the app tries to use as little resources as possible when not being actively used, shutting off timers, etc.
* Widgets will not be auto-updated with sync changes if the main app is not running; they will update only when main app gets a sync update.  I may try to fix this in the future.

Version 1.82 - Feb 10, 2015

* Manual sync working well
* Thanks to DC members cyberdiva and cranioscopical for all the help testing!

Great idea starting to play with Android Apps. Would you think about making a emergency app that is capable of GPS location as well as sending a sms to either a person or people of your choice. I live on heavy duty opiate based pain killers and have to wear a emergency bracelet in case my back gives out and I hit the deck, then can't get to the phone. It's great for around the house, but as soon as I go outside or travel, the bracelet becomes useless. I have found three Android apps that will let one contact emergency services if needed, but they aren't capable of contacting family members or friends to either come and help, or simply let them know where I am located and what condition I'm in. One free, the other two are to be paid for. So if someone would be kind enough to create an Android App as described above, I and many others would be extremely grateful. I am thinking someone's going to argue, but wouldn't it be best to simply contact emergency services first, then think about contacting family and friends second. Which is fair enough. But there are times when things go wrong, but not bad enough to go calling those services. Anyway, just an idea. Thanks.
