What's New in Version 2.1.0
- Turn off "auto centering" pan feature as by requested feedback. It will now only work when tapping on a mine so that all surround squares can be seen.
- Some minor fixes and improvements
Just hold still!
I have to agree with the other reviews here... it was better for me before the auto-centering feature was added. The new look is nice. Maybe we could have the option to turn off the auto movement. Overall, the apps by this dev are innovative and good looking, but this latest is just a little over the top for me.
Update 2 Aug 2013: The fix for the auto-centering issue has returned this to being my favorite game! Thanks guys! Good job!
Was Good Before Update
This used to be a very good and easy way to play before the update. The auto centering and new graphics are all just unnecessary.
