Koofr app 3.3.2 for Android released

We’ve made some more improvements to the Koofr app for Android this week and released the 3.3.2 version.

The biggest one is a completely revamped gallery that works far better on low-memory devices. You can also expect better behavior under memory pressure in general. We’ve lowered the importance of app notifications, so they won't bother you with sound anymore.

Along with that, we’ve added some small UI tweaks and improvements to benefit your general user experience.

And let’s wrap up with a shout out to Dave Morrissey for providing the base for our gallery revamp with his wonderful image view component. Thanks!

Koofr app 3.3.0 for Android released

We are happy to announce that we've released a new version of Koofr mobile app for Android. It supports one of the most long-awaited features - sharing of single files inside Koofr.

The updated version makes use of Android Oreo's specific features, most notably resulting in improved battery life, better handling of media uploads, and a shiny new adaptive launcher icon. Browsing in shared folders is improved and users with low-memory devices will appreciate improved memory management.

Along with those, we polished the general user experience, added a new icon set, and, like every time, fixed a few bugs such as search in folders and synchronisation of offline files.

Update indicator for connected accounts

Koofr now tells you when the file list from your connected drives is updating.

Up until now, it was not clear whether all the files you see in Koofr are the same as if viewed directly in a connected storage drive (e.g. on Dropbox).

A little red exclamation point in the top right corner in the Koofr app appears when the files in a chosen connected drive are updating.

Open files in Google Drive

Files and folders from your connected Google DRive account can be now opened in Google Drive directly from Koofr app.

If you view a file in the Koofr integrated viewer, you can open it in Google Drive by clicking the Open in Google Drive button on the top right side.

You can also easily open the file in Google Drive by simply right-clicking the file or folder in Koofr and choosing the Open in Google Drive option.

Integrated document viewer

We added an integrated document viewer to the Koofr application. From now on, when you open a document in Koofr, it opens inside the app and no longer in a separate browser tab.

You can also share a link to the document, rename it or delete it while it's open in the viewer.

Single file sharing inside Koofr app

You can now share a single file privately and in the most secure way possible - inside the Koofr app.

A great feature, one that many of you have been asking for, is now available! With just a few clicks, you can share a single file with Koofr members inside the app.

Just head to the file you want to share, click the Share button, choose Add people and choose the member.

Even if the person you're sharing the file with is not a Koofr user yet, they will receive an invitation to join (with a free 2GB account, of course) and they will be able to access the file.

Service problems - Solved

On November 18th at 5:04:00PM CET our infrastructure provider experienced a fault on networking equipment in their data centers. This caused some issues with accessibility to our service, which you may have noticed in the form of long wait times and thumbnails or links not opening as expected.

The problems have been solved and we sincerely apologize for this inconvenience. We are commited to improving our service stability and looking out to prevent similar occurences from happening again.

Thumbnails for HEIC image format now supported

In the new iOS 11, Apple replaced JPEG format with an image format called HEIC. HEIC images are now shown with thumbnails in you Koofr account, the same way as your JPEGs and images of other formats.
