What's New in Version 1.2.8
- bug fixes
Some big problems, but it looks ok after some struggle
The portfolio looks great after you get it right. The problem is with the ipad synching. Proper synching would look for the most recent version and put that in place. What happened for me is I loaded some folders into dropbox in the minimalfolio folder. Synched within the app and they loaded up. So far so good. Some of the photos were too large to display within the app however, so i went to the images in dropbox, resized in photoshop and saved. Then in the app i re synched. Voila, all the old images on the ipad overwrote the dropbox images. I then thought I would delete the items in the app and replace the images in dropbox as I had when I started. This time, when I synched with dropbox, the app deleted my dropbox files!!!! This seems totally wrong. A synch should use the newest version of the named file. No idea if I will get it working in time for a presentation. But all in, I have to say for a new buyer it is too much trouble.
A Great Portfolio App
If you are looking for a portfolio app that is clean and easy to use, it doesn't get much better than this. I bought the iPhone version of this app years ago (which worked great, but has since been taken down). When I got an iPad and bought this version, it took a bit of time but everything synced perfectly from the iPhone version. Overall this app looks and performs great. I highly recommend it!
Cheap and worth it!
This app is easy to use and is wonderful to have to present your work quickly to someone through syncing to Dropbox. If you don't want all of your files to sync, then make a separate account on Dropbox specifically for this app. It may seem inconvienient but actually works best to keep you organized!
