What's New in Version 1.5.2
So... that bug fix release was more of a bug causing release. Here's the redo!
In case you missed it, non-bugfix stuff from 1.5.0 is below.
Exciting feature #1: Question history
My biggest goal with this app is to be better than the mobile web, at least with the subset of the functionality we support. In a lot of ways, the app is better, but there are still some important areas where it's just not good enough. The lack of history was one of them. You start answering a question, leave to do research, and bam! You're never able to find it again. The new history view (available from the menu), attempts to fix all of that by providing up to 90 days of question viewing history.
Even more exciting feature #2: Better drafting!
Before, when I posited that scenario about losing your answer, I was doing it as a deliberate lead-in to this feature. What if you didn't have to hunt down the question you were answering because you could just find your draft? What if you could leave the question you were answering while also maintaining your minimized draft? What if you were asking a question, noticed a bug in the app, and could post a bug report in Meta without losing your draft? All of these things are now possible!
Any time while drafting a post, you can now swipe down on the navigation bar to minimize it, and you can start and minimize as many drafts as you want. These drafts will stay with you anywhere you go in the app so you can quickly restore them and get right back to what you were typing. If you close and save your draft, you will be able to find it again in the menu inside the new drafts view.
