More Control of Your Simple In/Out Board

It’s Friday night and we here at Simply Made Apps are shipping more features for Simple In/Out!  By popular request, we’ve worked to add more control to the presentation of the in/out board.  Many of our customers have wanted smaller text to fit more users on the screen, while others have wanted larger text so they can see their users’ statuses across the room.

To that end, we’ve added a gear menu in the upper-righthand corner of the board.  This menu provides text size controls as well as control over which data columns display.  You can remove columns, remove the avatars and add a new column for phone numbers.  When you go to fullscreen mode (we’ve moved the fullscreen button over to the left), you’ll see those same text controls and control over the number of columns.  Now, fullscreen mode users can use large text and two columns for a few users or up to 6 columns and small text for a whole mess of users.

In this update is one more big change, international date support.  This has been a big request amongst our international users and we’ve delivered over 60 different date localizations.  Every user has a language setting that will format the dates (month/day/year, day/month/year, etc), the times (3:20pm or 15:20) and any of the relative text (Today for example, in the language selected).  While we haven’t internationalized the entire website, dates were far and away the biggest request we’ve received.

As always, let us know what you think by shooting us an email.  Our big 6.0 iOS release is in beta testing now, we can’t wait to show you what we have in store.
