Release Notes: InVision Android App

Version 2.8.6

What's improved or fixed?

Released on September 28th, 2020, version 2.8.6 of the InVision app for Android included the following fixes and improvements:

  • Re-authentication issue: Recent changes to the code should greatly reduce the frequency of errors that result in needing to re-authenticate.
    These changes also address the frustrating issue caused by "ghost" documents—when one user deletes a document while another user has the Documents list open in the InVision for Android app; previously, if the Android user tried to open the document that was just deleted, it caused a 404 error that required the Android user to re-authenticate. Now, the app will simply refresh the Document list so the deleted document is not included.
  • Keyboard obstructs access: You should no longer encounter the bug that had previously caused the keyboard to block two critical tasks:
    • Sign in: Now you can see and complete the sign-in process after clicking the Know your team domain link.
    • Update password: Now you can see and access the Password field.
  • Hotspot corrections:
    • Positioning in fix footers: Hotspots in fixed footers will now get positioned as expected.
    • Maintain scroll position: Now if you select the Maintain scroll position setting for a hotspot, the app will respect that setting as expected.
  • Navigating screens: Now when navigating through screens, when users reach the final screen and swipe forward, they will see the first screen again. Likewise, swiping backward on the first screen will take users to the last screen.
  • Not all that refreshing: After mirroring a prototype to Android and then ending the session, your document list will no longer refresh (causing a needless delay).
  • Accessibility improvements: The app now supports use of both TalkBack and Switch Access.
  • Updated Crashlytics library: The app now relies on the latest version of the Crashlytics library to monitor performance.
