This post summaries recent changes made to the Android client. These are currently in the beta channel, but are due to go live in April.
Emails can now be sent using a Gmail, Outlook or Yahoo account. They can also be sent manually, instead of by JavaMail. This avoids authentication issues, but only works with the Outlook app. Other email apps do not support HTML.
This is necessary, as external storage is deprecated. Dropbox stores its files in a different area, and is not compatible with older Files screen. Support for Google Drive may also be added, though this is problematic.
The blue plus buttons have been moved slightly to the left, to avoid clashing with the scroll bar. A proposal for a more radical change was rejected.
Online help will now be delivered in HTML format. This is work in progress.
The app icon has been updated.
GPS and Maps
All GPS and mapping features have been withdrawn.
Scanning barcodes using the built in camera on a phone has been withdrawn.
