Together 1.6 for iPad and iPhone is available today. This update adds Spotlight searching, improved text formatting for notes and rich documents, updating smart groups, an improved Share extension and more.
Together can now search file content on iOS 10, both in the app and with the systemwide Spotlight search. All items will be added to the device’s Spotlight index to index their names, comments and tags, along with the content of notes, rich and plain text documents, web archives, HTML files, bookmarks, mail messages and PDFs, making these available to both the systemwide Spotlight search and in the app. In addition, when using Spotlight, you can continue the search in Together.
Together indexes content for downloaded items straight away, and temporarily downloads other indexable items in the background when there is a Wi-Fi connection to extract their content.
Improved Text Editing
When editing notes and rich text documents on iOS, there is now a toolbar for accessing new features to change fonts, styles, alignment and colors, and create bulleted and numbered lists. The toolbar also makes existing features easier to reach such as text highlighting and inserting a photo or video. It’s now also possible to find text in notes, rich text files and plain text files.
Updating Smart Groups
Smart groups will now update on iOS without needing to make the roundtrip to Mac, provided they are compatible with iCloud libraries. Currently smart groups that search file content or check for linked files are considered incompatible, because results can differ between devices.
Together’s Share Extension has been improved on iOS so you can now set tags on the items that get imported, and it will also use iCloud when available, so those changes appear on all devices without needing to open the app on the original device first.
Previews can now be made full screen on iPad in landscape, the total number of items (or found items) is now shown under the item list. On iPad, the New Item sheet no longer covers the whole screen, and there are VoiceOver improvements for expanding and collapsing folders, along with clearer labelling across the app.
