aWARemote 3.0 released - Manual server update required

After a few months of development and starting from scratch, I am happy to tell you that I have just uploaded aWARemote 3.0 Free and Pro to Google Play. Amazon and AndroidPit will follow later.

There are some great new features and a completely new user interface. The app is available for all devices with Android 2.3 or above.

Please note that you need to manually download and install the newest server from the Download page. Before installing this server, make sure that the old server isn't running anymore.

App and server are translated to English, German and Dutch at the moment. I plan to add more translations time by time.

With the update, there will be a sale until 07. Nov. where you can get aWARemote Pro for just 0,99$/0,79€. After that, the price will raise to 2,99€/3,49$.
