App Update: Introducing the Airtame 2.0 app!
Today’s announcement is a bigger one for us. The Airtame computer app is out in 2.0! 🎉
At first glance, you won’t see major changes. However, under the hood, we’ve done quite an overhaul.
In fact, this is the first step towards introducing a complete refactoring of every single bit of Airtame code.
This refactoring will happen not just for the app that runs on the computer, but also for the dashboard you see on the TV screen, and, most importantly, for the firmware running on the Airtame device.
The app update is available now. Within a few weeks, the larger update of the Airtame device will be available as well.
Feedback from our beta testers has been really positive, so we are really excited to send the update out into the field.
##Changes you will see
- A more lightweight app 💡
- Improved crash reporting 📉
- General streaming stability improved 💪
- Application itself has improved performance (less app crashes) ✅
- Improved device listing 🔍
- Fixed Soundflower installation (OSX) 🌼
- Fully refactored streaming component. 🔧
- Integrated Airtame streamer executable into the App. You will no longer see two processes. ✌️
###Changes you will see in a few weeks Some of the changes to the application won’t be available until the new firmware update is out. Then you can expect to experience the full magic!
- 4-digit pin code verification option
- Device discovery will be greatly improved!
