Devblog: Flow Pro for iOS and iPadOS
Hello everyone. Just in time for the end of the year, Flow Pro is finally available on iPhone and iPad. Thank you so much for being so patient with us over the past few months. Let’s use the last devblog post of the year to review the past few months and also look ahead to our most anticipated features and changes in 2022.
We’re very happy with the development of Flow over the last few months. We think we’ve found a good rhythm at the moment. The way we’ve bundled our upcoming features into larger updates has meant that we can better focus on the relevant next steps. It’s now easier for us to commit to an update, which makes us more efficient in development. A good structuring of tasks is important to keep motivation high and our goals reachable.
Flow Pro on iOS and iPadOS
Many of you might already know Flow’s Pro features from Flow on Mac. With our latest update, we’ve made most of the Pro features available to our mobile users as well. Some features, such as the URL blocker, are not yet included and require more development time. If you’re already a Pro user on Mac, you don’t need to purchase the Pro upgrade again. However, you may need to restore your purchase if it’s not already activated at launch.
What happened this year
First and foremost, we released Flow for iOS and iPadOS earlier this year, which was a big step for us. Since then, we’ve received a lot of valuable feedback and were able to identify great improvements for the future of Flow on mobile devices. Another major milestone was the integration of iCloud sync capabilities to Flow. Almost as expected, this came with a bunch of problems that we managed to address very quickly. We’ve also overhauled our statistics on macOS to show a time chart rather than just total numbers, which will be a good basis for further improvements and more detailed statistics. And of course, we just released Flow Pro for iPhone and iPad.
A look ahead to 2022
There are a bunch of exciting updates planned for 2022. We’ve once more updated and refined our roadmap to display our plans for the upcoming year. We’re especially excited to work on the Apple Watch version of Flow. We think Flow is a great fit for the Apple Watch, and considering how often the watchOS port has been requested, we think you’ll agree.
What would you like to see us writing about here? Are there any features you miss on our roadmap?
As always, if you enjoy using Flow and would like to support its development, we’d be grateful for a review on the App Store. Every review is important and helps our tiny developer studio tremendously.
We wish you a wonderful holiday season and a happy, healthy New Year! We appreciate all of you for your continued interest in Flow and your support.
