Hey,

I am proud to present my second app to a wider Audience! Since about two monts my App is now in the Play Store, but with my newest Version I dare to publish it here It would be absolutely amazing if you could test my App and tell me whats wrong and what else to implement. Even more amazing would be if you could post your created Light Paintings here! As it turned out I am a better Programmer than Photograph...

Cheers

Hi!

I uploaded the BugFix Version 0.5.1. The APK I was installing with Eclipse worked fine, the APK that I exported and send to Play Store / Google Drive not. This should be solved now.

Cheers

Hello,

I am moving quickly towards the first Version that could be called "stable". This time I removed two Bugs: the first made the RGB color gradient to be executed as HSV. The second Bug was introduced in v0.5, it caused all color gradients to run for 5s, no matter what you applied.

I also Improved the UI: You can find now the Refresh Rate and Number of Lines on the Main Screen, not hidden in the Settings. Just press the new More Options Button. In the Settings you can find now a new Option that lets your Phone Vibrate when the color gradient is finished.

Cheers,

KobiP
