Today we are super excited to announce that a new beta version of our iOS app is waiting for you to try out! This update has been in the works for quite some time and marks a new era for our mobile clients. Our iOS and Android apps now share a large portion of their inner workings, their source code, yet still retain the great speed and looks of a truly native app. The rewrite we have performed for the past year or so will help us iterate quicker with new features and bug fixes, and ultimately provide you with a better experience.
Enough with the nerd talk, show me what’s new!
Yeah we know, dark mode has been around for ages, first introduced in iOS 13 in 2019. Now we are happy to finally bring it to Spamdrain. We think it looks great! Here are a few teaser screenshots:
Polished looks and improved usability
The user interface has been redesigned from the ground up using modern components. Here’s a comparison of the Settings view between the old app (left) and new app (right):
Split view on large iPhones in landscape mode
