Thanks so much to all of you that participated in our Bug Report\Twitter campaign, YOU MADE A DIFFERENCE!
Version 2.8.1 has been released to the Android Market. This is primarily a bug-fix release, but before we get to that, a few words about our on-going issue with audio playback in the Android OS.
GREAT NEWS! The audio skipping issue has been fixed!
In our 2.8 release we introduce a feature called ‘Lightning Bug Audio’. Lighting Bug Audio is a custom audio system we built just for Lightning Bug that effectively fixes the gap\skipping issue many of you noticed as of Android 2.3 (Gingerbread).
One of our most frequent requests is to port Lightning Bug to the desktop. While we haven’t yet planned a native PC\Mac port, we do have some great news! A great new application called BlueStacks just went into a public alpha today that will let Windows users run Android and their Android apps on any device running Windows!
We’ve gotten a lot of requests for something “celtic” … and since it’s St. Patty’s Day we thought some of you might like an update on that!
A little darker than our usual scenes, this takes place near an Irish river bank during a Druid ritual. Chanting swells in and out while bagpipes and flutes play in the distance, wind chimes and thunder signal the coming rain.
If you follow Lightning Bug, you know we constantly ask for feedback and ideas on what you want us to improve. And in case you don’t know yet, we’ve set up a feedback voting site here at uservoice.com. So check it out! You guys have already given us so many great ideas for new features and content and we can’t thank you enough. In fact, we’re hard at work on Lightning Bug 2.7 which will contain a lot of the long-overdue features you’ve been asking for!
As usual, we’ve been really busy adding new content and features to Lightning Bug. But we finally took some time out to set up a Facebook page for your favorite Android app! Check it out and give us a Like
Since the release of Android 2.2 we’ve been getting lot’s of requests to allow Lightning Bug to be installed to your device’s SD card. Unfortunately we had a slight technical issue that was preventing this. But the good news is that we got our issue fixed and Lightning Bug now supports SD card installation!
Our latest addition, Rustic Pack, contains 15 sound loops, 5 new scenes, and is totally free! Our Country Pack, contains 21 much-requested sound loops, 8 new scenes, and is available in the Android Market.
Lightning Bug 2.4 addresses two requests we’ve been getting more and more email about!
First, if you’re a Froyo user, you can now disable your phones button lights while Lightning Bug is running. Some of you have phone’s that already do this, but for those of you that don’t you can finally get things nice and dark! Unfortunately we can only provide this to Froyo users for now, but we’ll continue to look into ways to provide this feature for older Androids.
