New 2nd-generation Mattermost mobile apps are officially released, offering greater speed, efficiency and reliability, plus compatibility plans for all major EMM solutions including BlackBerry Dynamics, MobileIron and AirWatch in the future.
Faster, more efficient, more reliable
Our new mobile apps offer dramatic improvements over our first-generation release, including:
Faster load times thanks to lower bandwidth requirements
Greater stability on weak network connections
High responsiveness from new native controls
Continuous improvement with a move to monthly releases
Greater responsiveness with new native controls. Swipe across image previews
What’s new in this release?
In addition to performance, 2nd-generation apps introduce new highly demanded features, including:
Deep link to posts from push notifications
Unread channels section at the top of the sidebar
Search filter for channel switcher
Ability to swipe across image previews
Caching to view messages while momentarily disconnected
Faster load times with optimized bandwidth usage. Channels with unreads now appear at the top of channel menu, along with the ability to filter channels by name.
You can download the 2nd-generation mobile apps from Google Play Store (Android) and App Store (iOS) today:
The 2nd-generation apps are named “Mattermost” and will be under active development. The 1st-generation apps are renamed “Mattermost Classic” and will be in maintenance mode, releasing only new bug fixes, but not new improvements.
Note: 2nd-generation apps were completely re-written for increased performance. There are a number of features in 1st-gen apps to be added in the coming month, including search, file preview and file download.
Huge thanks to all our contributors and testers
We’re immensely grateful to over two thousand community members who contributed to our 2nd-generation apps in design, code contribution, testing, and issue reporting across our iOS and Android beta release programs.
