What's New

•Support for iOS 8
•Support for connection to MediaCentral Platform v2.1

Fixed:
•The current version of the MediaCentral mobile app fixes a limitation that prevented segment and page breaks from displaying in stories when viewed on your mobile device. Segment and page breaks now display correctly.
•The current version also fixes a limitation that prevented you from approving a story while in Edit mode. Now you can edit and approve a story, and the approval status persists when you save your changes.
