Aurora Fient Updated and back in App Store

Aurora Feint has been update to version and is back in the App Store. The update adds some new features and fixes quite a few bugs including the ones dealing with security issues. Below is a list of Security updates.

Privacy and Security Updates:
    • Visible notification BEFORE participating in the opt-in community feature.
    • All network communication is now securely encrypted using https
    • No data from your contact list is saved on your phone’s hard drive

Overall, it seems like the security issues have been resolved. I personally like this game and will continue to play it. Let us know in the comments what you think.
