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.

March Update: Improvements and bug fixes

A new update is now available from the store for both Windows 10 and Windows Phone 8.1 devices.

In this update we have updated the Windows 10 menu bar/pullout with new icons for easier navigation.

Also in the update is a new layout for Reader section. The reader posts will now adapt and change layout depending on the screen size and device. Phones will continue to use the existing layout.

We plan to add multiple layout options in future update. Let us know if the new layout feature is good or bad, sound off in comments.

When using a touch screen device with a on screen keyboard or navigation bar, like a tablet or a phone, the bottom of the screen would get cut-off. We have updated the way we resize the application content in these scenarios. Give it a try!

Other bug fixes include a fix for the discover tab not showing posts and some fixes for explore tab.

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