Version 1.4 was approved for both the paid and free versions of APOD Viewer. Changes are:
- Added Multi App Live Tile. This option to the Live Tiles spans the latest APOD image across both the APOD Viewer Pro and the APOD Viewer app. To do this you pin the ‘APOD Viewer Pro’ to the left, then ‘APOD Viewer’ to the immediate right of it. Set both apps to ‘Multi App Latest Image’. Within an hour each tile combines to form the complete APOD image of the day. Much like Voltron. This option is available in both apps be it free or trial, so all users will be able to do this. For example, the initial pinned images look like so:
When the tiles update they will look like:
Pretty cool eh? Thanks to Frankie for the suggestion!
- Handled failed Thumbnail image downloads to revert to a default thumbnail image. I haven’t seen it happen except for video links on their first day has not thumbnail associated to it. Image links using the default thumbnail will have a correction attempted at the next app start up.
- Added ‘buy astronomy products’ link to the main page. This is just an website Amazon store that I put up showing Astronomy books, magazines, Telescopes, and Binoculars. This is just an experiment, I may remove this in a future update.
- Increased Favorites limit for free/trial versions to 8
- Removed locked Picture Buffer Limit for free/trial. This is not working as intended, it may be removed in a future release.
