Mobile App Updates

We’ve been busy so far this year adding new features and squashing bugs for our iOS and Android app. This month, we launched versions 2.7.2 and 2.8.0 which included:

  • We added the option to plan a Menu from the Planner’s action sheet.
  • We added the option to reschedule a Menu event from the event’s action sheet.
  • We heard your feedback and centered the shopping list store headings again to make it easier to see where one store ends and another begins.
  • We fixed an issue causing the app to crash on iOS 11.2.6.
  • Friend Menus should now load more smoothly.
  • We now request you provide an email address to log in.
  • We added a Forgot Email link that temporarily allows you to continue to sign in with your username and password so you can change your credentials.
  • We added support for updating your email, password, and username in the app.

Desktop Updates

We’ve been making consistent updates, squashing bugs, and adding features to the website too! Here’s a list of what’s happened in the past month:

  • We updated the API endpoint for menus to avoid n+1 queries.
  • We improved the performance of the app’s automatic logout feature, which checks if the user has a valid session once per minute.
  • We updated the API endpoint for authentication to support the old login path, the new email-only login path, and the Forgot Email path.
  • We fixed a bug causing ajax 404’s to log users out of the app.

We’re excited to give you another month of fresh updates, bug fixes, and exciting new features! We will continue to notify you of any new updates and features on our blog and via email.

In the meantime, if you have any questions, you can always contact our support team at [email protected].

Highlighted Reviews

For years, we had spreadsheets and to-do lists and everything else – taking up so much time to figure out what to eat and shop for. Plan to Eat is for the planner who wants to reduce trips to the grocery store, minimize food waste, easily coordinate grocery lists, and have a sense of control of your diet and meals.

I’ve tried a bunch of different ones, and this is my fave. Intuitive to use, and I love the toolbar “grabber” so I can quickly add in recipes found on the ‘net.
