Suggested list of contacts

In this release, we add Suggested list of contacts. What is it? It's your last five contacts who you shared your location with. Now you can click only once to continue sharing your location with these contacts.

Time of sharing is your last choosing sharing time for contact.

When you start sharing, you can see in the "My location" screen your Suggested list and button "Back to OsmAnd".

Online Tracker Widget in OsmAnd

We added Online Tracker Widget to OsmAnd. For viewing the Widget you should turn OsmAnd Tracker plugin on first. After that, the Widget will be in the upper-right corner of the OsmAnd screen with the signature "Start".

To switch off it, you can go to the General menu-> Configure screen(OsmAnd version 3.6).

The Widget has few appearances. At first, it is "Start". When you click "Start" you go to Online OsmAnd Tracker, where you can choose any contacts or click to Suggested contacts.

When you start sharing your location the Widget changes appearance.

The green smile "OK" means that your location is being shared now.

It's mean that everything is ok. The sharing does not have any issues.

The orange smile "OK" means that your location cannot be sent. There are issues with the Internet or with GPS connection.

If you don't have an internet connection for a long time, your buffer in OsmAnd Tracker saves points of your location. The Widget in OsmAnd changes its appearance. It starts to show the time of the buffer filling how long the buffer is keeping points of your location.

As soon as your internet connection is restored, points from the buffer are sent. The Widget in OsmAnd changes its appearance and minutes in the Widget are reduced. When all points from the buffer are sent to Telegram, the Widget is displayed as a green smile.

In OsmAnd, you can see that the Widget has a green smile. It's mean that everything is ok. The sharing process does not have any issues.

Added "Back to OsmAnd" button

This button appears in "My location" screen, when the sharing location starts. Now only one click if enough to move forward to OsmAnd.

Buffer Settings

Now you can choose time to keep saving points in the buffer. To do so, go to Settings -> Position -> Buffer expiration time.

Units and formats Settings

We added settings for units and formats. Now you can choose your comfortable values for Telegram messages during sharing location. For changing its values, go to Settings -> Units & formats.

Bug fixes
