1.8.15 YoWindow .apk file size reduced 45 MB -> 29 MB

Post by par » Tue Sep 29, 2015 10:03 am

New text display engine.
- YoWindow .apk size reduced from 45 MB to 29 MB!
- Ultimate support for Japanese, Chinese and Korean fonts.
- Greek language support.

Big thanks to our friend Eugeniy Zhirnov for making these features happen.

This is a major change.
We have updated every text label in YoWindow manually.
Please help us to make sure YoWindow still displays all the text properly.
Your reports, as usual, very welcome!

Most of all we are waiting for feedback from people running YoWindow in Chinese, Japanese, Korean and Greek.
Guys, is the text displayed properly?

Technical details for those who wonder why the size of the app was reduced.
YoWindow used to keep every character (for every size) it displays in bitmap files.
New engine allows us to create character bitmaps the runtime from Android system fonts.
So we have no need to deploy the character bitmaps with YoWindow anymore.
So we dumped them.

Hi Par,

The update won't let me load the wallpaper. I am using a Nexus 5 5.1.1.

All I am getting when I try to activate the wallpaper is 'unfortuantly, YoWIndow has stopped'.

But the actual app seems to be OK.

Thank you for reporting, friends!
The live wallpaper will be fixed in 1.8.16.

Have you found any other problems in 1.8.15 besides wallpaper crashes?

Hi Par,
I tried installing the beta on my Nexus 5.1.1 tablet, and was asked to uninstall my ad free version first. Not sure what to do now.
Thanks
Joyce

It's up to you.
If you like to play with BETA version you need to uninstall the version you have obtain from Google Play.
Later on you can install Google Play version again.

Alternatively you can install YoWindow Free BETA: https://rink.hockeyapp.net/recruit/672c ... 7f21dc6f98
In this case you don't need to uninstall the Google Play version.
