What's New in Version 2.1.1
After a major rewrite, the official Eurofurence app for iOS is back for another year and another con.
Faster, with less Laden and more interactive than ever before, it will be your trusty and reliable companion for EF23!
New features in this release include:
- Login and Personal Notifications: Sign in to receive personal notifications on upcoming photoshoot slots and the outcome of your bids at the Art Show.
- Favorite Events: You can now mark your favorite events to be notified in time to be ready when they start (interval can be changed in settings). The events shown on the news page as well as the events list can also be filtered to only show your favorites.
- Peek and Pop: If your iPhone supports Apple's 3D Touch, you can now preview announcements, events, dealers and info pages by pressing on them a little harder. On announcements and events, this also allows you to mark them as read or favorites respectively.
- Dismissable Announcements: To keep the news page clean and tidy, you can swipe an announcement and mark it as read. (No worries, you can always get them back by selecting "Show all".)
… and quite a few more things. Have fun exploring them and see you in Berlin!
- Announcements are now sorted newest to oldest instead of the other way around
- Images on knowledge entries no longer resize during animations
- Fixed crash on iPads when tapping a table with multiple dealers on the map view
- Made links in announcement texts tappable
