The app received a complete overhaul with a simplified design. Please read the most important changes:
Introducing the "drag to turn"-button. You can drag this button in 4 directions for quick and precise turns: drag it left for a 90 degrees turn left, drag it right for a 90 degrees turn right, drag it down for a 180 degrees turn right and drag it up for a 180 degrees turn left.
Added offline modus - explore the app without being connected to your Rovio.
Added full LED control and light animations. In the upper right Menu there is a new button. You can cycle through a bunch of LED presets like: all on, all off, circle animation, runner animation, KITT (do you rembember Knight Rider?) and other animations. Very sweet and works without hardware modifications. Please note that you can not change the LED while charging on the dock, but when charging is done you can for example turn all LED off. (night mode)
Bigger joysticks, tweaked controls, optimized UI for all screen sizes.
Sound selection menu changed.
User names and passwords can now contain characters like ':', '@' or '&'.
Added sound preview for guard mode.
Requires iOS 9.3 or higher.
Smaller improvements and a lot of under the hood optimizations.
