sticky New iOS App #release


 

Hi All,

A new version of the app is available for testing on iOS devices, using TestFlight. The public link is: https://testflight.apple.com/join/jWBSS0Jd

Click that link while on an iOS device to begin the process of getting the app.

Some notes:

  • This is a completely different app than what was tested before. This is more of a shell around the website that supports notifications and other app features. So, it's more feature complete and behaves more like the website. Also, it will be easier to update and keep in sync with the website.
  • Unread count badges now show up in the app icon. The number represents the number of notifications you've received since the last time you used the app.
  • New messages since the last time you viewed the app are now indicated with a blue dot. These disappear after you've seen them once.
  • Calendar integration doesn't work yet.
  • There is not yet a version on Android for testing.

Please report bugs.

Thanks,
Mark

Hi Mark, thanks for getting us another app to test. However, the admin panel does not show up on the app to approve or remove members if necessary. And this is something that I use the website extensively for.

I was able to get to the admin area by clicking on the hamburger at the bottom right. 


When I reply to a message, the field to write in doesn’t automatically start above the keyboard or scroll down as you type. You can manually scroll with your finger, but it would be nicer to have it automatically move as you type text. Thanks

Do you have an estimate for when the Android version may be available?
