I’m happy to announce the release of the new version 1.1 of Dynamic theme application for Windows 10 and Windows 10 Mobile.
Its goal has not changed: use the daily Bing image as your background and/or your lock screen on both PC, tablets and/or phones. Daily update is automatic, and if you want – a notification may be raised to indicate the publication of new image of the day. This notification is independent of use or not of the daily Bing image as background and/or lock screen options. A dynamic tile is also available.
But with this new version, I introduce a lot of requested features and more:
- Support of Windows Spotlight pictures for all features
- Personalize culture of Bing pictures (Australia, Canada, China, Germany, France, Japan, New Zealand, United Kingdom and United States are supported)
- Contextual menu for pin/unpin a settings view to your Start (with live tiles support)
- Secondary tile with live tile feature support
- Support of multiple folders for slideshow feature (background and lock screen)
- Autosave daily pictures (Bing and Windows Spotlight)
- Interactive toast notifications for save a daily picture (Bing and Windows Spotlight)
- Some UI enhancements (navigation, open a directory from multiple folders control, badge on app tiles, …)
- Option to use the system settings in case where another application personalizes your background and/or lock screen
- Dutch translation
- Portuguese translation
- Turkish translation
- Slovak translation
- Polish translation
I also made some optimizations and update:
- Optimize performance of background tasks for synchronizing daily pictures and throwing associated alerts
- Optimize size of application package in Windows Store
- Improve synchronization of settings between devices
- Improve migration of settings after an update without having to manually start the application
- English translation
- Spanish translation
- Italian translation
And finally some fixes:
- Malfunctioning of the daily Bing picture synchronization (randomly breaking)
- When the network connection changes, the pictures do not load anymore
- Some UI glitches (navigation, controls visibility, …)
Some feature exists natively in Windows 10 Desktop but not in Windows 10 Mobile (or the opposite). I propose them (Bing images, Windows Spotlight images, slideshow) without distinction on both platforms.
The application is free and contains no ads or in-app purchase. It is an universal application (UWP) and requires Windows 10 (minimum 10240 release on July). The application is available in 10 languages: French, English, Deutsch, Español, Italiano, Dutch, Portuguese, Turkish, Slovak and Polish.
