Grape 2.2.1 for iOS is out!

Grape for 2.2 for iOS just hit the App Store and we think there’s a ton of new stuff that will make you want to download it right away! Below you’ll find an overview of the most important new features of Grape 2.2, plus the highlights of our last update, which was released only a few weeks before.

Thrice as fast

Enjoy a faster and smoother app as we’ve completely reworked Grape for iOS for you behind the curtains. Content is now refreshed much faster, the animations are smoother and the overall stability of the app has been greatly improved. Also, the local database now consumes way less disk space than before.

Shared Files

The newly added Shared Files enables you to quickly access all pictures and files that have been shared within a conversation. A built-in preview allows you to view any file without leaving the app, but of course you’re able to open files in other applications too.

Better notification handling

We put a lot of time into notifications handling to provide a better user experience. Based on which client you’ve used most recently (iOS, Android, Web, Mac), you now get notifications only for these, on which you are currently active. This will reduze the amount of clutter and ensures that you won’t receive the same notification twice. Also, you get better and more timely in-app notification banner.

Two-step Verification

We further increased the security of your Grape account by offering two-step verification. Most people only have one layer – their password – to protect their account. With 2-Step Verification, if a bad guy hacks through your password layer, he’ll still need your phone or Security Key to get into your account.

Style your content as you wish

The markdown logic has been greatly improved, allowing you more options to format your messages. Additionally to using bold, italic and lists you’ll be able to use block quotes, inline code and several different url schemes.
