Padlock v2.6 Released

Sunday, Apr 1, 2018

Padlock 2.6 is out, and it’s one of the biggest updates yet! The main goal of this release was to refine the user experience in some key parts of the app, and after a lot of hard work, we couldn’t be more happy with the result! Here are some of the changes you’ll find in the new version:

New Main Menu

New Main Menu

In previous versions of Padlock we could get away without using a full menu but as we are starting to include more features, we found that we needed to find a better way of accessing advanced functionality and move between different parts of the user interface. The new main menu does not only look cool, but also provides a clearer, more transparent way of navigating the app. We’re far from done though! Stay tuned for more improvements like better accessibility and productivity-boosting keyboard shortcuts!

Improved Cloud Integration

Being able to easily share your data between all your devices is one of the key features of Padlock, but also one of the most technically challenging. We want to give you the most seamless, user friendly experience possible which is why we are continuously working on improving the way you access your online data from within the app. Padlock 2.6 introduces a number of significant improvements in this area, like an improved pairing process, the ability to manage your account directly from with the app and more!

Auto Updates For Linux

The Windows and Mac versions of Padlock for desktop have been able to receive auto updates for a while, but until now, Linux users had to download and install updates manually. This changes with Padlock 2.6, as auto updates are now officially supported for Linux as well!

We Love Your Feedback!

The opinion of our users is immensely important to us. If you have any feedback or suggestions on how to improve Padlock, please don’t hesitate to shoot us an email! Or maybe you think Padlock is perfect the way it is and want to help spread the word? We’d really appreciate it if you could take a moment to rate the app in the app store on iOS, Android, or ChromeOS!
