Hey there Workflowy folks. Today we’re rolling out significant improvements to the app’s startup speed. That means that starting today you should see a noticeable bump in how fast the app loads, especially on mobile devices.
After last year’s string of feature releases, we shifted our focus slightly to include more core elements of the Workflowy experience – like how fast the app loads. This is crucial to ensure that Workflowy remains accessible and loads quickly when you need it, especially if you’re a heavy user or are collaborating with others.
How fast are we talking?
In tests with users that have large accounts ranging from 80K – 300K items, we’re seeing an average decrease of 40% in load times from a fresh login. For logged-in users, we’re seeing an average decrease of 60% in load times.
It’s important to note these averages are for desktop users. Our tests with a handful of mobile users showed even greater reductions in loading time but due to the smaller sample size, we chose not to use those averages. In other words, if you haven’t tried out the mobile app or stopped using it – now is a great time to try it out again. iOS Android
So whether you’re using Workflowy by yourself or collaborating with other users, you’ll benefit from faster startup times.
What do I need to do?
There’s nothing special you need to do to turn on the startup speed improvements. We’ll activate the changes on our end and you’ll simply start experiencing the speed boost.
Special thanks to all the users that helped us with the testing and speed benchmarks ❤️
See you in the next one! 🇺🇦
