MailShot 6.0 Released

Mailshot 6.0 adds support for iOS 11 and for the unique iPhone X screen, it also features a big graphical update (its third or fourth since launch.)

iOS 11 made changes which broke the sharing of links from Safari and  multiple photos from the Photos app, and this update fixes those issues (and improves some others)

We should have an updated tutorial video in the next few days, but it was felt to be worth getting the new version out there for anyone lucky enough to get a shiny new iPhone X.

As usual, if you have any issues, or just want to let me know how the new version feels, please drop me a line from the Support button in the app, as that includes useful diagnostic information that will help solve any issues quickly..

UPDATE: Mailshot 6.1 has just been released, this fixes an issue when sharing video from Photos, and when sharing PDFs from the Mail app.

 

iOS11 and iPhone X support

We have already updated ShotList for iOS11, and to add support for iPhoneX screens.

The current version of MailShot still works great with iOS11, although an issue has been reported with Share extensions from Safari and Photos.

iOS11 seems to have an issue with group messaging, it appears the “Group Messaging” switch on the Messages page in Settings does not allow larger MMS groups, as it dd before.  This seems to affec all non-Apple messaging apps including TextShot. We have reported this to Apple, and are investigating at the moment.

ShotList adds support for iOS11 and iPhoneX

Version 9 of ShotList is now available on the App Store. It adds

• Support for iOS11 and new iPhoneX screen
• iPad multitasking (both Split Screen and Slide Over)
• Dropbox API 2.0 (API 1.0 is retired at the end of this month

In addition you can now crop and rotate storyboard images as you add them to your project.

Some users were creating projects with very large PDFs, you can now also save a project as a PDF to Dropbox, rather than only using email.

There are also increased shot angle options, and various other small tweaks and fixes.

roundedShotList works with all iPhones, all iPads, and iPod Touch running iOS9.0 and above, and is available now on the App Store.

Mailshot 5.3 Update Released

We have just released a new update for MailShot, our popular group email app, which adds a few fixes and tweaks:

  • Warnings when creating  overly-large or empty groups
  • Fix to duplicated groups, following a split of a large group
  • Fix for a graphical bug on the iPad Pro title screen,

This update also ensures that updated devices continue to save MailShot contacts to the address book. (As they are no longer needed in most cases, a future version of the app will offer to disable their saving, and remove them from your address book. They are already disabled for new users. )

We have also updated our QuickStart video, which you may find helpful. It walks you through current methods to create and use groups, sending photos and documents, forwarding email to groups, and sharing documents from other apps to Mailshot groups.

If you have any problems, please drop me a line from the “Support” button in the app.

A new, or refreshed, review on the App Store is very welcome after an update. (A shortcut is provided for this from the “Rate” button on the title page.) Doing this helps us to keep the app alive. Thanks for your help.

MailShot 5.0: iCloud Sharing Between Devices

We are excited to announce the release of MailShot 5.0, a major update which uses iCloud to share group data, so groups can be edited and used across iPad and iPhone. It will also simplify the restoring of group data when you upgrade or reset your iOS devices.

NEW IN 5.0:

  • Synchronise groups between iOS devices.
  • Groups are automatically sorted in alphabetical order.
  • Group members are now sorted by SURNAME.
  • Can import members of one MailShot group into another.
  • Larger checkmark and (i) button targets, making them easier to tap.

TIP: Some of your devices may contain out-of-date copies of your groups: Start by updating the app and running it on the device that contains your preferred versions, then update the rest. (Any differing group versions will have “_2” added to their name. You can then choose to rename, delete or merge any conflicting versions.)

Alternatively- update and run the app on the device with your preferred versions first, then delete and reinstall the app on your other devices. (this will share just the preferred versions of your groups to your devices)

We hope that you enjoy this free update. To ensure we can continue to support and improve MailShot, I would really appreciate if you could please rate and review the app on the App Store (our old reviews are hidden every time we update, so renewing an old one is still very helpful.)  A link to rate on the App Store is provided from the title page of the app.

MailShot update: send to multiple groups

Since the changes brought about by iOS9, a few users have asked for the ability to send or forward email to multiple MailShot groups more easily, so we have added this feature in a new update, released today.
On the page that lists your groups, tap “Multi”,  select your groups, then tap “Send”.

Obviously, any limitation imposed by your email provider on the number of email addresses per message will still apply, so MailShot displays a warning message if you try to send to more than 99 addresses.

As you add groups, the title bar of the app will change to display how many unique addresses you currently have selected.

2015-11-17 13.47.13

You can also use Multi selection in the new MailShot share extension, introduced a few weeks ago, which allows you to share documents, photos and weblinks directly to MailShot groups.

The function to change the ordering of groups has been relocated. Select a group, tap “More”, then “Sort Groups”, you can now change their order with the grab handles that appear.

NOTE: Occasionally users report a problem when apps are updated through the App Store. If you are unable to start the app following an update, please turn your device off and restart it (you should see a white Apple logo) then run MailShot again.

You can read all about the new iOS9 features on our iOS 9 page, or find the answers to more general questions on our Support Page. As always, if you have any problems, please drop me a line from the “Support” button in the app.

If you would like to help us to continue to develop MailShot to make the best of iOS9, a new or updated review on the App Store would be very welcome, as all our reviews and scores are reset every time we update the app. (A shortcut for this is provided from the “Rate” button in the app.)
