    • ICE is now available in Italian. We are deeply grateful to Stefano Fiorini for generously volunteering his time and energy to translate this app into Italian.
    • ICE now participates in automatic backup/restore. For Android 2.2 and later, the system will automatically backup your data and settings to a cloud based server, and will automatically restore them whenever you re-install the app (e.g., after a reset or when upgrading to a new phone). Note however that Android does not guarantee that this will work in all cases, so you may still want to backup your data to the sd card just to be safe.

    • Sound slider added to lock screen -- works just like the system lock screen.
    • Improved 'instant on' lock screen for Android 2.x:  phone will no longer wake on any key press - it will now only wake up the same way it would with the system lock screen (e.g., just with the POWER button on the Droid or Nexus 1); pressing HOME always returns to system lock screen (i.e., no longer unlocks when the phone is not pattern locked). Note that these changes only apply to the 'no delay' option.  If you are using a delay the lock screen behavior is unchanged.

    • Multiple insurance policies and doctors. From the ID tab, press MENU/Add insurance or doctor.  Long-press an existing entry to edit or delete.
    • Insurance is now listed by type (primary, secondary, dental, etc). Tap an insurance entry too see its details.
    • Only for non-US locales: if you have national health coverage use MENU/\'Edit ID info\' from the ID tab to enter your medical identification number (e.g., NHS Number, CPR NR, etc). Leave blank if you do not have national health coverage.
    • Display age instead of date of birth on ID tab.
    • Reorder the elements of any list (select MENU/Reorder list).
    • Editing is disabled if ICE is launched from the widget. This is needed since the ICE widget can be used on other lock screen replacements, such as Executive Assistant (see our web site or click the Appventive Market button below for more info on Executive Assistant).
    • for Android 2.0 and later: instant-on lock screen if \'No delay\' selected; also, if you pattern-lock your phone, the pattern entry screen after exiting the ICE lock screen will have the usual emergency call button.
    • support for Android 2.1 Live Wallpapers.
