A new version of SeattleCloud app has been published on Google Play. It has a lot of UI and stability improvements.

We've also published the same version for Kindle Fire on Amazon Appstore and it will be available as soon as Amazon approves it.

* Improved app state restore on reactivation from background
New features (many of these were available in apps but not in SeattleCloud previewer): 
   - zoom for external sites opened in WebView
   - open PDF files for Media List in-app via embedded PDF reader
   - sync is always performed before opening app from a notification
   - additional optional fields for Login & Register (such as date of birth)
   - Voice Record field for Feedback
   - FTP upload for Voice Record
   - option to clear data in Feedback after submission
* Updated libraries: AdMob, Pollfish, RevMob, PDFTron (PDF View now works on all Android versions)
* Improved performance and stability
* Smaller installation size

Additional Information:
This release brings all the latest design and UI patterns and a couple of cool new features to the platform.

We've redesigned the previewer and all page types according to Google Material Design guidelines
You'll be able to use new bold and colorful app bar, new scrollable and fixed tabs (and swipe between them), improved search UI and navigation via up-button. 
This redesign also includes modern Material themes (both dark and light) and new icons. We also made sure that all pages work great on both light and dark themes, and accent colors are appropriately applied everywhere.

Speaking of colors: we've developed a new native app style editor, which allows you to change every color used in the app to match your brand or design ideas. You can customize colors of tabs, app bar, buttons, text fields, switches and many more. 
And you know what's great about the new app style system? You don't need to request a new build to change your app style! Just change some colors, click save and the app will change it's appearance on next sync. This also works in the previewer: preview app style on your devices before even requesting an APK.

And one more thing for business and publisher accounts. You can change the appearance of previewer apps the same way as other apps: use the new app style editor and request a new previewer build.

We will release the new app style editor next week. A new tutorial on how to apply Material design to your apps is also coming soon. 

Here are a couple of examples of what you will be able to achieve.

New colorful app bar and status bar, page title, up-button, search action item

Improved search interface (used in a couple of different pages and previewer)

Scrollable tabs

Fixed tabs

Tabs with icons

Dark theme

You can preview these demo apps on your device in the new previewer using username "styleDemo" and access code "style".

We're not done with native app style improvements, this is an ongoing process, so please provide feedback, we really appreciate it.


Note on Android versions support: to provide best user experience new version of SeattleCloud system for Android supports minimum Android version 4.0.3-4.0.4 (Ice Cream Sandwich, API 15) and up. This accounts for more than 95% active Android devices according to Android Platform Version Distribution dashboard
SeattleClouds platform is optimized for current Android version 5.1 Lollipop. 

When new page types and features will be available for Android? We don't have an answer for this right now. But we can always try to find a solution for you if you really really need something ASAP.

If you have any questions on this build and new functionality introduced in it, please feel free to ask. If you have any suggestions or ideas, don't hesitate to let us know about them. We don't promise everything will be implemented right away but we'll take into account everything you say.
