Photo Timeline update problems

2 of 5 A few days ago I released a new major version of my app Photo Timeline. The new features and changes include

  • map moved to a separate page for better experience
  • multiple map providers to choose from (Bing, Nokia, OpenStreetMap, Mapnik)
  • native Windows Phone 8 build
  • many, many bugfixes

There is (again) a problem in the Windows Phone Store that annoys the users of my app. Users get error when trying to update the app. When the app is uninstalled, the users are asked to buy it again.

This is an issue with the Windows Phone Store and is completely outside of my control. I suggest you reach out to Windows Phone Support via Twitter @WinPhoneSupport or http://support.microsoft.com/.

It looks like the same problem that Metrotube had some time ago. I have contacted the support and I am waiting for the answer. In the meantime, avoid updating the app, do not uninstall the app and do not repurchase it if you have already paid for it.

Shopping List Simpe: the simplest and most beautiful grocery list app


itsdagramqrShopping list is one of these apps, that all the mobile Stores are full of. These apps fight for the user usually by adding features. But is this really what the user needs or wants? More features?

The app is actually just a simple list of items at its core. The main advantage is the gesture control, so the app can be easily operated by one hand. By swiping your finger right you mark items as purchased and swiping left adds items back to list. If you regularly buy the same things over and over again, you do not need to type their names again.

The app has an engaging and clear design. If you don’t like the default color scheme, you can choose from three others.

So far, the app has been getting very positive reviews, and it is on sale now for $1.29. with a free trial.
