Known Issues and Considerations:

2020/05/26: To streamline programming and improve the support experience with PCC Android, we are
announcing an End of Life in supporting data exchange with the Version 5 Cowfile/License:
Customers are encouraged to migrate to the Version 8 Cowfile/License by December 31st, 2020
to continue using PCC Android in the year 2021. Please contact your Sales/Support Specialist
for assistance in making the needed upgrade to Version 8.

2020/05/26: PCC Android is currently being refactored with a newer form of transaction database; most of
the time during this sprint was dedicated to this refactor: We will advise more about this
enhancement on a future release. The number of Vet entry taps is one such improvement coming out
with this data base change.

2020/05/19: Update to Google's security regarding apps from unknown sources: This is the first release where
a new Google security notification has popped up for PCC APK installations (see example to the right).
Users must click Install Anyway or else PCC will not install.

2020/03/23: PCC Android is not supported on devices with Android 10, we will tackle that version on a future sprint.

2020/03/17: PCC Android users may need to update or replace older Android devices: Future updates for Pocket CowCard
Android require the Android device Operating Specification to be in the range of Lollipop 5.0 to Pie 9.0.
Please upgrade or replace your device after 2/15/2020. If you have any questions on the options or would
like to purchase a device, please contact sales at 888-225-6753.

2020/01/13: Uninstalling the APP will remove it and all associated data from your device: This means you
will lose all your custom settings, herd folders, unposted transactions and archived transactions
on the device. If you must uninstall your app, please deliver any unposted transactions to DC305
first, then consider renaming your app folder COM.VAS.PCC. We are looking at ways to preserve some
of the content if possible, with what Googles Android does during the uninstall process.

2020/01/13: The server that handles the distribution of the PCC Android app will be sunset soon. The Google Play
store is the method we are looking at for distributing the APP.

2019/12/12: Scanning new animals into the herd from a TODO list or AD-HOC event: Scanning of a new animal into the herd
currently adds that animal to DC305 immediately. In a future PCC Android release, we plan to match the
current Windows Mobile functionality and instruct the DC305 Server to hold those new "add" transactions
rather than immediately adding them to the system.

2019/11/13: Scan method overwrite: Scan method items may be changed inadvertently from their original values when
tapping on animals from the QUEUE or DONE tabs in worklists. For instance, an R or V method may update
to a T. This issue will be addressed in an upcoming release.

2019/10/11: DC305 license and application upgrade required: Future improvements for the Android version of Pocket
CowCard and the VAS Platform will require that you upgrade your Version 5 DC305 licenses to Version 8.
An application upgrade to the XE version of DC305 will be also be required.

2019/03/07: Android Nougat 7.1.2, 8.1.0, and other newer versions cannot read 8-digit SD Card  Google has removed
the ability to read the 8-digit SD Card ID on newer versions of Android. The current method is to use
the Device ID for the licensing of Pocket CowCard at the time of registration.

2020/01/13: The server that handles the distribution of the PCC Android app will be sunset soon. The Google Play
store is the method we are looking at for distributing the APP.
2019/01/13: Android users may need to update or replace older Android devices:
Future updates for Pocket CowCard Android require the Android device Operating Specification to be in
the range of Lollipop 5.0 to Oreo 8.1. Please upgrade or replace your device before 2/15/2020. If you
have any questions on the options or would like to purchase a device, please contact sales at 888-225-6753.
2019/12/12: Scanning new animals into the herd from a TODO list or AD-HOC event: Scanning of a new animal into the herd
currently adds that animal to DC305 immediately. In a future PCC Android release, we plan to match the
current Windows Mobile functionality and instruct the DC305 Server to hold those new "add" transactions
rather than immediately adding them to the system.
2019/11/13: Scan method overwrite: Scan method items may be changed inadvertently from their original values when
tapping on animals from the QUEUE or DONE tabs in worklists. For instance, an R or V method may update
to a T. This issue will be addressed in an upcoming release.
2019/10/11: DC305 license and application upgrade required: Future improvements for the Android version of Pocket
CowCard and the VAS Platform will require that you upgrade your Version 5 DC305 licenses to Version 8.
An application upgrade to the XE version of DC305 will be also be required.
2019/03/07: Android Nougat 7.1.2, 8.1.0, and other newer versions cannot read 8-digit SD Card  Google has removed
the ability to read the 8-digit SD Card ID on newer versions of Android. The current method is to use
the Device ID for the licensing of Pocket CowCard at the time of registration.
