While there are no new “big” features to report with this update, we’ve added some quick little fixes to make Oyster point one better.

◇ Features ◇

• Improvements to publisher styles including poems, quotes, and the like.
• Fixes for background colors on some books in the reader.
• Better loading (and reloading) of book lists if they are modified in the world beyond the app (i.e. the web).

What's New in Version 2.2.1
When we think summer, we think of one thing: summer reading. OK, we also think about digging our feet into the sand, getting a tan (don’t worry we’re wearing SPF 45!), and long days in the hammock, but let’s be honest—it’s all better with a good book.

To celebrate summer, we’re asking you to share books you’re reading from the app to Twitter or Instagram with #ReadAllSummer. We’re giving away everything from totes to posters, tank tops, and even a free year of Oyster!

Looking for a new book to read this summer?

◇ Features ◇

• We’ve added a ton of new books to Unlimited! You’ll notice a bunch of new titles from Macmillan in this update.
• Have you ever wanted to be able to see when a book is coming to Unlimited? Now, we’ll let you know the exact date a book is moving to Unlimited.

Thanks for using Oyster! Tweet @Oyster to share the books you are reading with #ReadAllSummer. Questions? Drop us a line at hello@oysterbooks.com.
What's New in Version 2.2
Picture this: It’s the end of the day, and you climb into bed and tuck yourself under the covers. You read page after page on your phone or tablet until you drift off to sleep. But the next morning, you wake up feeling groggy and tired. You might think it’s your typical book hangover (those exist, right?) but studies show that nighttime reading on screens that emit blue light can keep you awake longer and make you super tired the next morning.

We don’t want anything to stand in the way of enjoying a good book, so we set out to fix that. This release introduces a feature that makes reading at night on your phone or tablet as warm and soft as your favorite flannel sheets. It’s called Lumin and we think you’re going to love it.

Here’s more…

◇ Features ◇
• The best way to read at night. Turn Lumin to ‘Auto’ mode and Oyster will use your location and the time of day to automatically adjust the amount of blue light coming from your screen as the sun sets and rises. Just turn it on once, add your location, and never think about it again.
• Custom Lumin mode. You can also choose to adjust your Lumin tone & temperature settings manually. Change light level based on what looks good to you, and choose from a range of lower-contrast backgrounds. Custom settings stay constant throughout the day.
• Two new (beautiful!) Reader Themes. We’ve added ‘Ace’ and ‘Highline,’ just in time for your summer rooftop and backyard reading.

What's New in Version 2.1
Did you know that every day this week is the same forwards as it is backwards? Seriously. Take a look: 5/14/15, 5/15/15, 5/16/15, 5/17/15. We’re just here to keep you on your toes. Oh wait, we’re also here to tell you about what’s new in this release.

â—‡ Features â—‡
• Based on your feedback, we updated text sizes in the reader so you can customize the way you read even more. Now the biggest size it bigger and the smallest size is smaller. Enjoy!
• We added the ability to show or hide your password when signing in so you’re less likely to type it incorrectly. Now go ahead and make a password that would make your mother proud.

What's New in Version 2.0.1
In case you missed our last update, we have some really good news. You ready for this? We added a bookstore so you can do ALL of your reading on Oyster, including books that aren't in subscription.

To our beloved subscribers: don't worry, we didn't move anything out of subscription! You still get the same library of 1 million books included in your monthly subscription.

You can also buy books on Oyster without a subscription. The opportunities are endless. We just want you to read books, because books are the best. Did we mention we love books?

â—‡ Features â—‡

• For 2.0.1 we made improvements across 2.0, including updating the way books load when you toggle between Unlimited and All.
• All. The. Books. We now have every book you could ever want including titles from authors like James Patterson, Gillian Flynn, Anthony Doerr, Stephen King, Donna Tartt, J.K. Rowling, and many, many more.
• We even have books that haven’t been released yet.
• Easily toggle between “Unlimited” and “All” to filter books.
• We added an aqua banner to help you identify which books are available in Unlimited.
• We redesigned the Explore tab to highlight the best books right now, including every New York Times Best Sellers list.
• We added tons of new complementary colors to book detail pages (ooh la la).
• Explore our new categories (43 in all!) and browse by Top Books, New Releases, New to Unlimited, Recommended for You, and more.

What's New in Version 1.8.3
Whoa. Oyster is getting even better (and bigger) than ever for those of you who have an iPhone 6 or 6 Plus. Don’t worry we’ve got some nice improvements for everyone else (tiny little iPhones included :).

â—‡ Features â—‡
· We’ve updated the app to run on iPhone 6 and 6 Plus screens beautifully. Although we’re a sucker for those who wear glasses, we have to admit, it’s like looking at Oyster with a whole new set of (20/20) eyes.
· If you've recently upgraded to iPhone 6 or 6 Plus from iPhone 5, you'll notice much more space for more words for more reading. Seriously, we’re all reading books on our phones now and loving it. Fun fact: iPhone 6 has 45% more space for words on a page, and iPhone 6 Plus has 60% more space. Actually, sorry that wasn’t all that fun.
· We fixed several bugs including one that made page turns a little slow for some readers. Now you can flip through those pages faster than Rebel XD (a rapper who won the Guinness Book of World Records last year for rapping 852 syllables in 42 seconds.) Cue “The More You Know” music.

What's New in Version 1.8.1
Hey Oyster Readers! Like a freshly sharpened pencil, or the sweet smell of new sneakers, we’ve put some polish on our latest version, just in time for Back To School (or work!).

â—‡ Features â—‡
· New! Now when you sync a book to read offline, we’ll let you know, at-a-glance, that it’s available on your device. So next time you’re taking a long flight, going on a camping trip, or hanging out in a coffee shop that has one of those pesky no-wifi rules, you can be sure your favorite books are there with you.
· Fixed a bug that showed no friends when some users synced Facebook. If this was a problem for you, give it another shot to connect with friends.
