Since the launch of Cover last November, you guys give us a lot of positive feedback. Thank you. We’ve been working hard to improve the next version, adding features, fixing bugs. So today we are very excited to launch a new version of Cover (version 1.1.187). We’d like to share with you some of the stuff you will find in it.
Cover is now more integrated into Windows 8 than ever. We’ve finally added support for Live tiles. Cover comes with 2 types of Live tiles, Library and Reader.
This Live tile is triggered when you leave the app while being on the Library, it will give you an indication on what you have in your reading queue. Every tile size comes with an optimal set of information.
The Reader Live tile is triggered when you leave the app while reading a Comics, giving you information on the current reading status.
Along with Live tiles, comes the ability to pin Comics to your start screen. Hook your favourite comic books directly on windows 8 start screen, and you will be able to open them in Cover without having to look for them or using the search function.
We’ve also made the search more accessible on Windows 8.1 so you can access it easily from the library. You can manage your library by selecting books and folders and changing read status directly from the library.
Cover 1.1.187 contains all this new features, and is available as a free update on the Windows Store.
