HipChat iOS version 3.0.2 is now available on the App Store, just in time for the holidays. It’s packed with new features, improvements, and straight-up fixes that will significantly improve your mobile experience when communicating via HipChat.
Up first (and most important), emoticons! We’ve brought autocomplete to iOS because let’s face it, who can remember how to spell (daenerys)? So no more (rageguy), just plenty of (yey)!.
Next up, the chat input field. We’ve heard your pains (and experienced them ourselves) with this area of the app. So we started from scratch and completely re-built this control for a smoother and less buggy experience. Pasting text now correctly sizes the input and attach file / Send buttons stay at the bottom – within reach of your fingers.
Finding rooms and people search is now smarter and sorts your exact matches above the fuzzy search matches. So searching “Marketing” will put rooms starting with Marketing above rooms with the word Marketing in the middle of the name.
Some people may have experienced problems when trying to share files from their Dropbox app – these have been resolved. Share away! We’ve also made many other fixes and improvements under the hood as well.
