The universal app for Windows 10 is finally here

Posted on

After more time than expected, our top app has finally become a Universal Windows App leveraging the amazing possibilities of Windows 10.

The UI has been totally reworked and written from scratch to take advantage of the new design language offered by the new release of Windows. The overall experience should be quite good, but we need to make some improvements here and there. So you should expect many updates in the upcoming weeks that will overcome its minor flaws.

Unfortunately we are not ready yet for the Mobile experience, but it will be available soon. You can continue to use the old version on your Windows Phone 8.x meanwhile.

More integration with Windows Phone 8

Now it's time to drop the support for Windows Phone 7.x based devices and charge on towards WP 8/8.1

Stay tuned on this!

Version 3.8.2087.7 released

Posted on

This update is the result of tons of improvements we made both server and client side. The huge plus you'll find in this release are pictures from Curiosity on Mars.

The new section "Curiosity" allows you to keep up to date with the latest images sent from the Curiosity from Mars to Earth. These are raw images, so many of them may seem nonsense, but still they give you a nice look-at what Mars looks like today!

Another important improvement is related to the Live Tile, now localized in your language (if available).

Enjoy this much awaited updated as we're going to update the Windows 8 version too.

Astronomy Hub finally went Mango. Regardless our difficulties with the LG Customer Service, we worked hard to deliver to you the Mango update for our top Hub.

In this release, we focused on making your browsing experience more faster: while you are reading an article, you can slide your finger to the edge of the screen to navigate backward or forward through this huge archive! Plus, we restyled the favourites section to match better the Metro UX and improved YouTube support.

Another great addon is the pin to start feature, a must have feature in most Mango apps. The overall performance has been improved, plus, the recents panel is now more comfortable to use: no taps are needed to load older articles.

Hope you'll like this update as much as we do. Don't forget to rate us!

The Mango update is coming!

We're sorry if this update took such a long time, but we waited for our development device to be fixed by the LG Customer Service, without results. As nearly 2 months have passed, we decided to release this important update regardless being tested on a real device.

The ByteStorms team and I hope to bring you a great Mango experience within the next week, as Astronomy Hub 2.0 is waiting to be approved by Microsoft before being pushed to your Mango phone!
