Trade in Values v2.0.1 Available in Marketplace

Trade in Values 2.0.1 is now available in the windows phone marketplace. This release takes everything that was great with v2.0 and makes it even better.

As promised the light theme has been fixed along with Wii U games now displaying properly. The release was strictly targeted at bug fixes but we were able to squeeze a little more in. Beside fixing some annoyances we also rolled in support for game hardware!

remynders v1.5 for Windows Phone 8

While we wait for Trade in Values v2.0.1 to be published work has begun on an update to remynders. To get more acquainted with development for Windows Phone 8 we've decided to discontinue the 7.X development. By focusing on WP8 this will allow us to become more familiar with the changes in the platform and bring the update out faster. For those current users of remynders on 7.X, we will not be disabling the app from the marketplace so if you need to download it you can rest assured that it will still be available.

So what can you expect in v1.5? Full support for the WP8 platform which means:
  • native support for all three resolutions
  • new fast app switching
  • support for iconic tiles, including wide support
We're also adding in:
  • remynders re-branding!
  • ability to edit remynders
  • ... and various bug fixes
There are a couple of other features that may make it into this release.. but let's keep those under wraps for now ;)
