sorry for the frequent updates, I wanted to get this to users asap
1.36 (more smaller bugfixes)
*single bubbles appeared very small on watch
*when changing watch background color the default changed too
1.35 (no major new features, service release)
*Increased app bubble resolution: they looked very pixelated on lower end devices, now the app bubbles will look sharper across the board. Please redraw clouds this way:
*WEAR: the archive bubble cloud was supposed to expand sideways, but I just found the bug preventing this to happen. No matter how many bubbles you put in the archive, they will now stay big enough to tap them. If more than 15 bubbles are moved in the archive it will start to extend sideways (you can scroll it horizontally)
*fixed the clouds so bubbles are not cut off in the corners of the round screen watches. Okay, technically circles don’t have any corners, but I hope you get it.
~I changed the default arrangement of bubbles the first time the app is started on the watch: only a maximum of 15 bubbles will appear in the favorites cloud, the rest will appear in the archive by default.
You can easily move them between the clouds by long tapping.
+App will query user experience once after 12 days of use for premium users

+”delete dwarfs” and the new “freeze sizes” appear in the general settings to configure the default settings
~further rearranged cards in Settings for convenience
+tap app icon in Settings to open action drawer
*image refresh used to overwrite custom bubble colors โ†’ fixed: will prompt if you want new colors only immediately after the background color is modified
1.31
~move Premium card to the bottom of the stack after upgrading to premium
~1 pixel wider default border width for contact bubbles (looks nicer on watch)
~show yellow contact bubble icon in watch even though contact cloud is empty โ†’ help first time users
