What's new in version 2.1
New features in this version:

- Musicplayer design:
We updated the musicplayer design. From now on, there is only one musicplayer active at a time, and it is always present at the bottom of your screen.

- Knocking sounds:
You can now enable to hear a short sound, when a knock is detected. This helps you to identify the number of times you knocked already.

- Auto suspend:
TipSkip now automatically shuts down when you didn't use it for a while, to save battery. This can be adjusted in the settings.

- Insights screen:
For the first time ever, you can have a detailed view of our algorithm and how it reacts to knocking, shaking and movement. This will help you to figure out the right sensitivity for your activities.
