We added nicer looking icons when you interact with the app. Inspired by Google's Material Design, we changed the icons so the user can clearly see the available actions on any given view in the app.
The new bottom bar for forms has a dedicated Cancel and Save button which you can change in the App Editor. This makes the form navigation smoother by reserving a dedicated space in the app to key form action buttons.
When you see any record in the app, you are in its slideshow view. You can now navigate the slideshow view by swiping left or right is any other records are available. You can also use the arrows to the left and right of the app to navigate. An added bonus for apps with a background image in slideshow views is that the images of the records before and after will pre-load to make the app navigation faster and smoother for your app users.
We added the ability to select any view in your app to be the the next view when a users completes a form. This is useful when you want to take the user to another set of instructions, or even another form! You can target the same form by simply selecting automatic. The functionality is available in any view of form type.
