WorkFlowy Is For Thinking

I just saw a blog post outlining why someone prefers WorkFlowy to other note taking and list making tools. It included the gif above. I liked the summary, because it emphasized something that’s hard to describe: that WorkFlowy excels at helping people think clearly, and link thoughts together.

Better support for Swype and 3rd party keyboards on iOS 8

swype-logoIf you use Swype, you can now hit enter and it will create a new line, as expected. Enjoy Swyping!

Update: Unfortunately, we have had to disable this change. It created a serious bug in the normal iOS app, causing hitting delete with one character left in an item to also trigger a “return” event, and thereby wreaking all sorts of havok (you don’t expect hitting backspace to create a new item, right?). We’ve looked into a better way of doing the fix, and are hoping to implement it soon.

WorkFlowy Feature: Expand While in Search Mode

It used to be that in search mode, you only saw:

  1. Items matching your search,
  2. Their descendants
  3. Their ancestors.

This annoyed a lot of people, especially those who use tags heavily, because sometimes they needed to explore their WorkFlowy document while a filter was active. Now, you can do just that, you can expand any list while in search mode.

A fair number of people seem to have been really annoyed by this issue, so hopefully this saves you a few gray hairs!

Note: The root level of a zoom level currently doesn’t have the ability to expand in this way, so let us know if this gets in your way.
