Version History

Launched Dec 15, 2008 (almost 12 years ago).

Releasing new versions every about 1 year, on average.

Feb 12
Version 2.1

Bug fixes. New name

Oct 09
Version 2.0

Yeah, yeah. I am sorry. This fell through the cracks.

To make it up to you, I have added:
- Support for devices up to iPhone 6+.
- 7 New Sounds added
- New Buttons for those with bigger screen.
- New F1/F2 Mode
- Background sound can be turned on/off in-app by tapping the speaker near the EMRG button.
- More LEDs
- New icon

Things that went away.
- Old scanning GUI (The one from the very first version)
- Pressing the Library button, only plays a sound. You now cycle through the screens by tapping each GEO MET BIO button again.
- Real world stuff. (GPS, Decibel, Magnetic Scanning). Those screens are still there they just display random numbers now.

If you don't see something, it's probably because you have a phone with a smaller size. The new buttons / sounds / etc are for iPhone 5s and up. I wanted to fill up the space, so instead of making the buttons bigger, I added more.
