Get our new (faster, smoother) update!

Ok y’all.

New presidential administration, new product polish. Whatever your political persuasion, we think you’ll agree that our newly spruced-up editor is smoother, prettier and faster. Enjoy!

New features:

  • Drafts open faster (because they always open in edit mode)
  • Keyboard tabs (& play/edit buttons on iPad Landscape) now have text labels next to the icons to make it more clear what each tab is for
    • Spruced up editor (play with it to see these fancy animations for yourself!):
  • Animate objects going from keyboard to stage
  • Animate blocks going from keyboard to editor
  • Animate scrolling in the keyboard
  • Animate the keyboard changing when navigating the project tree

Bugfixes:

  • Tutorial video player no longer covers up the keyboard in iPad Landscape
  • Objects no longer appear behind tutorial video player
  • Tutorial video player no longer goes off screen when rotating iPad
  • +Add Code is now always visible when you add your first 3 objects in a project
  • +Add Code is now easier to see (fully opaque)
  • Follow button no longer overlaps the header on the profile when scrolling
  • Magnifying glass in fullscreen text form no longer shows the view underneath
  • Whole numbers on older projects are no longer displayed with decimal (.0)
  • Variables in the editor are no longer displayed without their previews in the editor

I think they just make it smoother. I tried messing around with the editor and it just seemed smoother.

I’m not sure, but their headquarters are in New York.

So I suppose that it could be like that.
