Release day for Amazon App Store Users. The MyStory.today app is available for FireHD and other devices with an Amazon Appstore now. In the future all upcoming versions are released there as well in sync with the Play Store and App Store.

To prevent downtimes, MyStory.today uses additional data centers in Germany and Sweden
Currently MyStory.today uses a data center located in Nuremberg, Germany to store the needed data. This is a single point of failure because there is a downtime when the hosting provider upgrades the infrastructure or security updates on machines are needed and causes a planned downtime like this one in January or last year in August. And unplanned outages appears, when services crash or network infrastructure is down. This didn't happened very often in the last year but there was an outage of 6 hours on September 21 this year.
To prevent these problems in the future MyStory.today expands to multiple server locations in Germany and Sweden. The data center in Nuremberg will be kept and two additional locations are included in the new MyStory.today network now: Falkenstein and Helsinki.
So when the data center in Nuerenberg is offline for example you can continue with your work seamlessly and automatically with one of the other data centers. This prevents a downtime in the future for the whole service.
Colorful library and improved reorder functionality
In version 0.11.0 the whole library system was rebuild and redesigned. For this version it's possible to colorize the cover of your books in the library and the reordering functionality of chapters and scenes was improved. And from now on it's possible to collapse / expand your chapters within the sidebar. The new version is available in the Android Play Store and on the App Store for iOS.
