After the swift programming language moved to 3.0, I took some time to refactor the implementation, and make design tweaks so it would be more in line with the original look and feel. A snapshot of what it looks like can be seen below:
I made a few aesthetic tweaks, most notably:
- The progress bar is now set behind the text field to provide that subtle indicator of how far you are into your session
- A visual indicator of the session length (I’m always scrambling around trying to set/remind myself of how long I setup a session for)
- Generation of a (customisable) HTML file in addition to the standard CSV.
Part of the reason for Rapid Reporter’s popularity is that it’s simple and unassuming. It purposely doesn’t have a lot of bells and whistles or visible cues as we don’t want it to take focus away from your testing. Having said that, I do often wonder whether there are things that you wish Rapid Reporter would do that it currently doesn’t.
I’m almost at the point where I could release this via a new github repo, but have thought about making it available via the App Store - just for ease of pushing updates, etc. Naturally, the tool would be free, no ads, no in-app purchases, etc.
So, my question(s) to you:
- Do you use Rapid Reporter?
- What does it do well?
- What doesn’t it do well?
- What would you want to see in terms of enhancements (if any)?
