We would like to thank everyone for the incredible response we’ve had since launching Quip. We set out to turn a difficult aspect of Twitter into something frictionless and intuitive and your reaction has shown us that taking risks and challenging the status quo can really change things for the better.
Our big goal was to take the work out of Twitter so you could get on with enjoying it. To our delight, that’s exactly what many, many people are telling us Quip is doing. In fact a number of people have even said that after giving up on Twitter, Quip has brought them back.
Today we’re happy to announce that version 1.0.1 has been approved and is ready to update from the App Store. This is mostly a bug fix update, however there’s one new feature that goes a step further in the treatment of conversations.
We’ve added a conversation button to each tweet, where the retweet button used to be, (the retweet/quote tweet buttons are now found in the cog popover but this can be reverted via an option in Settings). This button performs the same function as holding your finger on an avatar, however it has the added benefit of a blue highlight state to indicate what will happen when it’s tapped.
We’d like to thank everyone who has reported bugs and given us your feedback in general. This has been invaluable for us in getting this update done and in creating a roadmap for the near future.
Here’s the full list of what’s new in 1.0.1:
- Conversation button on tweets
- Now uses the Twitter-optimized keyboard when composing and searching for tweets
- Cursor is now positioned at the start of the tweet when quoting a tweet
- Fixed a bug where the Compose Tweet view would disappear when attaching an image or switching apps
- Fixed a bug where an incorrect Twitter password showed a mislabeled message about the network being down
- Fixed a bug with auto-scrolling in Mentions tab
- Fixed a bug with some users experiencing a crash when tapping the Messages tab
- UI and performance tweaks
