Today we released version 4.01 for iOS. You’ll probably see it in your App updates over the next few days. We strongly recommend upgrading from 4.00 to 4.01 as we’ve taken a lot of feedback and support cases and worked hard to make sure that the release made some great improvements.

Here are some highlights of what’s new in 4.01:

  • Added “Scroll by Month” option for our vertical Month View
  • Calendar “mini-months” are back (swipe in from the left edge to show them)
  • Added setting to show/hide the iPad Graphical Today View Sidebar
  • Saved Filters now show on top of the filter screen for easier access
  • Added Sync button on the iPhone Tab bar (turn it on in Settings->View/Tabs)
  • Improved visuals when using background color style
  • Improved behavior of event/task popover display by adding better support for telephone number links, and editing an event/task by tapping on its date/time
  • SmartTitle interaction has been improved when typing in contact names
  • TravelAssist™ trips sync more reliably now (only available via Informant Sync)
  • Checklists in the popover now show larger and can be used more easily
  • Added Tiny Size option to Day View

And here are a few of the pesky bugs we have exterminated for you:

  • Fixed a few sync-related issues
  • Fixed some event template issues (“Show Template in New Menu” setting, template duration fixes, etc)
  • Fixed a couple issues with recurring events and exceptions not showing properly
  • Improved font size behavior in places using iOS 7’s Dynamic Text Size
  • Improved Calendar/Task Printing to show rich text notes and headers better
  • Improved some text encoding issues in our event/task popover
  • Fixed an issue where converting a task to an event would not always work
  • Backup Manager now shows non-user invoked backups and a few other backup fixes
  • Fixed an issue with iOS Reminder locations not saving if Proximity was set to none
  • Fixed an issue in some timezones like New Zealand where if the first day of week is Monday, November and a few other places might truncate the month in Month View
  • Month View Time bar style handles multi-day timed events better
  • Other minor fixes throughout

Also, this week I’ll be working on some basic developer videos to show off some of the 4.0 features and common questions I get. I’ll also talk a bit about some of our design decisions and what we did in 4.01. Keep a watch out here to see them!

As always I thank everyone here for all your support. We’ve got a really great plan ahead for you guys – and many things that I think will surprise.
