This day has come!
New versions of our iOS and Android applications already waiting for you! Check them out in Apple Store and Google Play Market as well.
The new releases include bug fixes and some minor improvements of both apps but that is not the end of the story. Currently we are working further on our mobile applications and you should expect new versions with newly added features soon.
We hope you enjoy using freshly updated apps and clean Inboxes!
Please feel free to contact us if you would like to provide us with the feedback or report any issues found (though we worked very hard to solve them ).
Have a great day and stay tuned!
As we reported earlier this week we had some issues in our latest update. The review went really fast this time so the new version 2.0.12 is already approved for App Store. It may tak a day or two before available everywhere so please be patient.
Please make sure to update to 2.0.12 as it contains critical bug fixes!
Update: New version 2.0.12 is now approved and soon available in App Store. Please make sure to update.
Unfortunately we have two issues in our latest iOS app, version 2.0.11.
The first issue is in the Blocked and Allowed lists, when reporting or releasing a message. The top message will always be the message to be reported or released regardless of which message you tap – if you do this from the list. If you do this from the message view it works as expected.
Do not upgrade to 2.0.11 – wait for 2.0.12 instead
We have submitted a new version to App Store, but nowadays it takes about a week before Apple reviews apps so the update will take some time to reach you.
Workaround if already updated to 2.0.11
Before the new version that fixes this issue (2.0.12) is available you need to do the following when reporting or releasing messages:
- Do not report/release from the lists directly unless you want to report/release the first message.
- Instead – tap the message and report/release from the view message screen:
- Or you can use the web site to manage your filtered messages: https://app.spamdrain.net
Issue with 12 hour setting
The second issue is that message lists won’t show any messages if you have your clock set to 12 hours instead of 24 hours. The workaround for this is to go to your Settings app, General->Date & Time and switch 24 hour on. Then lists will show messages again. Version 2.0.12 will include a fix for this as well.
We are very sorry for the inconvenience and hope the new version will be available a soon as possible.
A second beta of the 2.0 version of the SpamDrain Android app is now on it’s way though Play Store. This version mainly contains bug fixes and no new features compared to the last beta.
We are currently working on adding the rest of the features such as adding and managing addresses and signing up. Until this is finished we’d love to get more beta testers. So please join our beta test Google+ group if you haven’t already to get your copy of the beta.
We know that you all been waiting a looong time for the new Android version of SpamDrain. We made a decision last year to rewrite the app again since we were not happy with our initial efforts to revamp the app. This, along with us working on keeping the filter as great as possible (since we know you all deserve the best :-)), has delayed the new Android app a bit too long.
That said, we now finally reached the point where a first beta is about to be launched. So please help us out and sign up for our Android beta program below. We use the built in beta testing functionality in Google Play Store, so all you need to do is to join our Google+ group for beta testers. Once you’ve joined the group and got accepted, you will find a link to Google Play where you may the SpamDrain beta program. Once we have published the first beta version you will receive an update to your device.
Last week we finally released the new iOS app, SpamDrain 2.0, with support for both iPhone and iPad. A big hand to all beta testers that made the release possible. The past six months we have been working hard to finalize what is a complete rewrite of the old app. We have tried to gather all the feedback we have received from our lovely users and transform that into new features and improvements which hopefully makes the app more useful and usable. I know already that many of you love the improvements, but we also know that some of you don’t. That’s why it’s important that you keep sending us valuable feedback so we can keep up the work of improving the app even more.
Ok, enough with the words, give me some screenshots.
We are also working on a similar rewrite of our Android app but we have not set the release date yet. We will however, release a minor update to our Android app next week or so that will rename the Archive and Report to Blocked and Allowed. We will also make similar updates to our web UI, so the experience is consistent on all devices. But until then, there will be a mix of terminology.
Unfortunately there is currently a known issue in the iOS app. If your iOS device is set to use 12-hour time, the app crashes when you sign in. We have already submitted a fix to Apple for review, but it may take another week before the new version is approved.
Until then, please make sure to set the 24-hour setting to “On” to use the SpamDrain app. You do this in your iPhone/iPad settings->General->Date&Time.
Last week we released what we hope to be the final beta of the SpamDrain iOS app. Now we would like more users testing the beta before we push it to App Store. So…last chance folks before we make the final adjustments :-).
Please click the button below to join the beta program – and remember to add your device in TestFlight – otherwise we won’t be able to send you any beta builds.
We use Testflight for this beta program which is a well known platform for rolling out test versions of iOS apps. Click the button above to sign up with Testflight and join our beta program.
Once you have added your iOS devices and we have approved you as tester you will be able to install our current beta release.
