Back in December, we launched a brand new Material Design focused version of our Phandroid News app for Android. The new version packed a completely new user experience as well as a few hidden goodies throughout the app. Today, we pushed a new version to the Google Play Store which aimed to fix a few bugs that were plaguing our users. On top of bug squashing, we also added a new feature to save your precious data, thanks to faster image loading.
What’s new in version 173 (2.6.6)
- Faster image loading for CardView
- Added ‘Don’t ask again’ to Disqus nag screen
- Added title link to open just app from widget
- Fixed image loading with huge delay
- Fixed issue to honor subscription with multiple gmails
- Fixed issue with some videos not showing
- Fixed ToolBar showing correct ‘Favorite’ status
- Fixed list offset in article list in certain situations
- Fixed other reported bug fixes
