Just a quick “thank you” to all our wonderful community members and creators who inspire us every day to make Thunkable better than it was yesterday. Here’s what’s new in Thunkable this week:
Take a look at our release notes for a more detailed description of everything that’s included in this release.
Thunkable Live for Android
Make sure you’ve upgraded to v. 67 of the Live testing app, head over to the Play Store to get up-to-date.
Thunkable Live for iOS
We have quite a few new components planned for the coming months, and the Loading Icon paves the way for a few of them. The current icon comes in two different sizes and 16,777,216 different colours!
We fixed a bug that caused apps to crash when the
Visible property of a component was changed
Late last year we launched the top tab navigator and bottom tab navigator components. These new components gave creators more options for structuring their apps compared to the simpler Tab Navigator and at the time we advised that the tab navigator should now longer be used. This release now hides the Tab Navigator so new users have just the Top and Bottom Tab Navigators to choose from
Resizable Component Tree
The release also features a number of upgrades to the UI designer. The most subtle of these is the new ability to resize your component tree. Instead of being limited to 3 predefined sizes you now have more control over the left side of your screen.
Linear Component Menu
To make it easier for all users - but especially new users - to find the components they’re looking for we’ve switched from a grid layout to a linear layout. The categories are still collapsible, so you can show/hide just the components you need.
Searchable Component Menu
Finally, we’ve added a search bar which should make it even easier than ever to find the component you are looking for.
