Trello for iOS 2.6 just landed in the App Store. I know, I know, you’re probably bowling over one another to be first in line to download – but wait. The App Store doesn’t work that way. You can actually all download it at the same time, which you should do right now. And then come back and read the rest of this nice, shiny blog post. We’ll wait.
Alright, downloading? Good. Let’s make with the features already.
Card and List Cloning
Some said it couldn’t be done. Some said it shouldn’t be done. But we did it.
That’s right, you can now copy lists and cards right from the app — no more bouncing to the website for that.
Internal testing reveals that the chance of your lists and/or cards turning evil as a result of the cloning process is negligible, and will only decrease as time goes on.
Bulk Card Operations
Forget everything you thought you knew about the list menu. We’ve taken a glorified archive button and turned it into a power user’s paradise. Just look at these bulk operations:
Now the next time your “Todo: CRITICAL” list gets out of hand, you can just archive all of its cards! Or I guess you could do all of them, and then bulk move them into your “Done” list. It’s a style choice.
Back in my day, there was no way to star boards from my phone. If I wanted to star boards, I had to open up my computer and go to trello.com. But now? It’s right in the sidebar. It’s a tap away!
Just picture it: a whole generation of tap-happy kids growing up with their favorite boards front and center as soon as they open the app. And some day they’re going to run the country? It’s an abomination. A user-friendly abomination.
Sometimes you want to get notifications about changes to a card, but you don’t want to put your smiling face and/or abstract gravatar on the front of it. Or you do want to join the card, but you don’t care about getting notified about every little thing that happens to it. Or you want notifications about everything that happens on a whole board — basically, sometimes you want more control over the notifications you get. Sometimes… you want subscribing.
Well folks, it is my great pleasure to announce that in 2.6, you can have subscribing. And we didn’t just add it to cards! We went all the way. Boards, lists, cards — you name it, you can get notifications about it. As long as you name one of those three things.
There’s no screenshot because this feature is literally just some checkboxes, but here’s a picture of a cool cactus I found over the weekend.
Yep, subscribing is pretty great.
And So Much More
2.6 is the Tagalog word for “new features,” and we didn’t choose the name lightly. Multi-attachment upload, URL scheme support, intra-app linking — there’s so much new stuff that we couldn’t fit it all into one blog post.
Download now, and please write an app review! Developers are powered by app reviews. It’s like sunlight. Or… food. Food makes more sense in this metaphor.
