Hey everyone. It’s been a long time since we did an update to the iOS app, but I decided to take a look at it when iOS 14 was rolling out because I wanted a widget to put on the home screen to show feeds.
I’m pleased to say that after a bunch of work, I’ve got something I want to share with folks before doing a submission to Apple for a full release.
The main new features are:
- iOS 14 widgets. These are a really nice way to have feed data always accessible. The previous version of the app had a Today widget, which is still available, but these new home screen widgets are much better.
- Dark mode support. It’ll switch with the system setting. Nice addition for folks who use dark mode (like me!).
There’s also a bunch of little fixes and tweaks which I think make the app a little smoother.
If you’re interested in testing this out before a full release to the App Store then you can sign up by clicking here: https://testflight.apple.com/join/LREu9f4l . You’ll get the new build as soon as Apple have approved it for testing.
Let me know what you think!
Here’s some screenshots:
