Along with bug fixes and performance improvements, we wanted to make you aware of many of the visual updates we’ve made to our upcoming 2.1.2 release. Moving forward, we’ll be using this forum to showcase new designs and visual tweaks.
As always, we’re looking for your feedback.
In an effort to be consistent across the platforms, we’re updating our fonts on iOS and Android. On iOS, you’ll see Apple’s native font San Francisco and on Android, Roboto. We’ve also tweaked font sizes to be more consistent across the board.
On the Things view, we’ve updated rows to feature a rectangular button vs a circle. The biggest issue we encountered with the circles was the readability of the label; devices with longer labels would scale to a size that was difficult to read. This update also provides a more generous tap target. We understand it’s a pretty big change but we hope you like it!
We’ve updated all of our configuration screens. The new look is cleaner and puts more emphasis on readability. Combined with the font updates, it’s a pretty significant upgrade.
The edit rooms experience has undergone a significant improvement consolidating two screens into one. Did you know you can feature a device at the top of a room? This updated experience lets you quickly choose which devices shows at the top by tapping the star (in previous releases, this functionality was an extra tap away).
(coming to iOS in 2.1.2 and Android in 2.1.3)
You’ll also notice some improvements tiles in device details screens. Fonts and icons have been tweaked.
We hope you like these tweaks and we’re keen to hear your feedback.
For future releases, expect more posts like this. Our goal is to notify you of changes ahead of time so you’re not surprised by our changes.
