Apple Document Picker Support

Listen up, file-philes. We all know that sending photos and videos is a handy feature, but sometimes you want to attach good ole’ fashioned files like PDFs, Word docs, presentations, and others to your TigerText messages. Now you can do just that using your iOS8 device thanks to Apple’s new Document Picker.

For apps like TigerText that have Document Picker enabled, files from popular cloud storage services like Box, Dropbox, Google Drive, and Apple’s iCloud can be attached to your TigerText messages with just a few simple taps.

Attach files from Box, Dropbox, Google Drive, iCloud and other cloud storage apps.
Optimized Layout for iPad, iPhone 6+

A mind may be a terrible thing to waste, but so are pixels. To make better use of the larger displays on the iPad and iPhone 6+, we redesigned the TigerText layout on these devices by introducing a dual-pane interface that puts your conversation list on the left and the message window on the right. This makes it easier than ever to navigate through a stack of conversation threads and issue faster replies.

(Note: iPhone 6 Plus users will need to switch from Zoomed display mode to Standard mode. To enable the Standard setting, go to Settings » Display & Brightness » Display Zoom, click on Field and switch tab to Standard.)
New, optimized layout takes full advantage of iPad and iPhone 6+ screens.
In-App Alert Sound Setting

If the roar of a TigerText alert gets you revved up, then hold on to your smartphone. We’ve added the option of receiving alerts while you’re in the app to help make sure you never miss a message. In short, you can have the TigerText app open and still hear the alert. This is especially helpful for chronic multi-taskers or those who work in noisy environments.

To enable this feature, open the TigerText app, tap Settings, and turn on the In-App Alert Sound option.

Hear message alerts even when the TigerText app is open.
Quick Filter Groups and Distribution Lists

It’s great to be popular, but being too popular can be a problem. Like when you belong to so many groups that you can’t sort them all. That’s exactly why we added a new Quick Filter to the Groups tab, so you can quickly shorten the list and scroll to find the one you’re looking for.

Filter your groups for faster lookups.
