Hull CS Blogs for Windows 8 Version 2.1 Released

Hull Computer Science Blogs Version 2.1 in the Windows Store

You may remember a very similar Blog Title from a week ago, saying that version 2.0 of Hull CS Blogs had been released for Windows 8. After some feedback from Rob Crocombe and noticing a few things that irritated me I have made a few minor improvements and released version 2.1, which you can update to from the Windows 8 Store or download from here.

Changelog:

  • Changed the name on the Start Tile from “Hull Computer Science Blogs” to “Hull CS Blogs” for Aesthetic Reasons
  • Added the label “Latest Blog” above the latest blog on the home page, so now the blog title on the picture has more context
  • Improved performance on caching, meaning the initial start up of the app is much faster
  • Added “friendly dates” to each blog tile – e.g. “2 hours ago”, “3 Days ago” or “1 month ago” rather than “16/03/2012 16:45”
  • Made it so you can see who Authored each blog post on the main page
  • Improved UI for Split Views
  • Fixed a bug where the Latest Blog sometimes wouldn’t appear

I hope you enjoy the application! Please rate and review, and don’t hesitate to get in contact if you have any bug reports, ideas or feedback!

Thanks,
Danny
