Chère #TeamShadow, Au cours de la vérification de la dernière version de notre app, les équipes d’Apple ont décidé de retirer les apps Shadow iOS, iPadOS et tvOS de l’App Store. Pour l’heure, ces apps ne sont plus disponibles au téléchargement. Nous sommes actuellement en discussion avec les équipes d’Apple pour en savoir plus et pour permettre de rétablir les apps sur l’App Store dès que possible. Les utilisateurs ayant déjà téléchargé l’app auparavant sur leur(s) appareil(s) y auront toujours accès avec les mêmes fonctionnalités. Malheureusement, nous ne pourrons apporter de mises à jour à ces apps pour le moment, il se pourrait donc que l’expérience se détériore avec le temps.

Quand les apps seront-elles de nouveau disponibles ?Nous ne pouvons fournir de réponse pour le moment. Nous cherchons dans un premier temps à en savoir plus sur l

The freshly developed Dynamic Bitrate will improve your Shadow experience by over 9000 This new feature goes by the name of “Dynamic Bitrate” and will make sure that your Shadow will lose fewer packets in all of your sessions. It does this by monitoring your connection with Shadow and whenever needed, it adjusts the acquired bandwidth on the fly. This means that next time your smart fridge suddenly starts another 13 GB update, or your significant other binge-watches another 4K cat telenovela, your Shadow will automatically adjust to the changed bandwidth environment and continue to work smoothly. 💡 If you are suffering from the above-mentioned issues, lowering your bandwidth allocation for Shadow can help a lot. The higher the selected Mbit/s, the more packets are sent per time interval, and in this case, the more packets are also lost per time interval. The Dynamic Bitrate sits alongside most of the other options behind the cog-symbol in your launcher. Here you can comfortably swit

They will be talking about the future of Shadow with iOS and the WWDC20.
