iOS Users: Landscape View is coming very soon!

Hi Guys -

Wanted to post here for our iOS mobile app users that Landscape view is coming very, very soon. We are completing development now and expect to have it tested and submitted to Apple this week. We expect it to be released next week; I will update here if this changes. Landscape is our number one issue - appreciate the feedback and we're trying to be as responsive as possible.

We have many more enhancements and new features planned, but given this is the primary issue we've heard about since launch, wanted to let you know it is on its way. Thanks for your patience!

Other iOS requests?

Please bring back swipe to go back. On newer iPhones this is a huge deal.

I also relied on tapping the view title area to scroll to top and that is gone now too.

The app looks great and is definitely more responsive but losing these key navigation routines is a real detriment to the experience.

Completely agree and apologize those features were missing. We have submitted a hot fix for landscape support and are just waiting approval from Apple before launching. The next build, which we anticipate will be out in the next two weeks, will include swipe to go back from deal details, tap to scroll to top, and a number of other issues you've reported. Thanks for your patience, we are working hard to get these features to you as quickly as possible!

Thanks, we're working hard to resolve the issues the community has raised.

Wanted to give an update: we continue to work with Apple to release our already submitted Landscape support app update as soon as possible. There have been some delays from Apple we are working to resolve. Thereafter, we have already completed a release, currently in testing and to be submitted shortly, that addresses:

- The deal refreshing problems some of you are experiencing when reopening the app after it has been in the background
- Swipe right to return to list from deal details page.
- more polished Landscape experience
- a resolution to users reporting they have been logged out of the app
- other minor polish/bug fixes

It is possible that in the above release we will also include a fix for an issue in which some users are sometimes involuntarily logged out of the app; we are very close to solving.

With any major release we expect there to be issues - admittedly there are more in this release than we anticipated, all of which we will have resolved for you shortly. Thanks again for your patience.
