Server Maintenance Tonight

We’ll be moving some things around this evening. We don’t anticipate any interruption of service, though you may notice some slight sluggishness in site response from time to time, or not.  :-)

Will post progress on twitter @nirvanahq

iOS5 throws us a curve ball

So it turns out our mobile web app is broken on iOS5. Errrrrrg. Oh, the timing… here we are relying on the web app to bridge us until our native iOS app is ready, and now we’re 0 for 2. Really didn’t want to invest any more time on the mobile web apps.

Technical: The N2 mobile web app was built with jQTouch as the underlying framework.  jQTouch breaks on iOS5.  Hence, N2 mobile is currently borked on iOS5. Looks like we might be able to port N2 mobile over to jQuery Mobile, now that that project has reached RC1 status. At first blush this looks to be the quickest/easiest path to restoring a mobile option. In theory this would also make N2 mobile available for  a plethora of other devices we have no resources to build native apps for at this time. Trying to find a silver lining here…

No firm ETA, but know that this is a big issue that needs to be addressed pronto.

UPDATE: we have resolved the iOS5 issue
Will be rolling out a new build over the weekend.

Changes: Left Navi

Heads up for the next release: we’ve moved things around in the left navi a bit. It’s nothing radical, but might take a bit of getting used to for the old guard.

  • The filter-by-area menu has been pushed up to the global navi
  • Focus has been placed below the standard GTD lists
  • Projects has been renamed My Projects
  • We’ve visually delineated and grouped items more clearly
    Collect / Actions / Projects / Cleanup

Impact to keyboard shortcuts: numbers 1 through 9 have been remapped.

Impact to area filtering: search results are now filtered to match only items within the selected area. Logbook too. Inbox and Trash are the only exceptions to the (filtering) rule. We think this makes sense. By definition, inbox = unprocessed items, so applying a filter to these items is presumptuous. And really, who needs multiple trash cans.
