WMPoweruser App V2.1


The latest version of the WMPoweruser app is out now, and whilst it’s mostly refining the app, there are a few new features

  • Updated the overall feel of the application, putting content first, with smooth transitions and fades to improve the experience, as well as pinch to zoom in posts
  • Better storing and updating of posts to reduce overall overheads and improve general performance
  • Comments are the biggest new feature, and are available in “trial” and “full” versions, you now get taken to the WMPoweruser website within the app to login (usernames/passwords are not stored by the app) – you must be registered to comment on the WMPoweruser site, not just Disqus

The app can be got from the marketplace here.
