April Update: General Bug fixes

We have a new update in the store for Windows 10 UWP app. There is no change for the Windows Phone 8.1 app as of now.

In this update, we have fixed a bug where users were not able to post new comments. Thanks to one of our users for reporting this problem.

Following some feedback we have added a new processing screen just after you add a new blog within the app. Earlier users would see a blank page until processing was complete.

Also in this update is a UX styling fix in notifications tab.

As always, if you have any issues, please do reach out to us in comments, email, Twitter, Facebook.
