Desktop App Beta 2 is out

May 30, 2018 at 7:07pm
Note: we're still figuring out how our autoupdater will work - in the meantime, it appears that we don't have something configured quite right so if you want to get the latest version you'll need to re-install the desktop app manually from that link above.
Sorry for the hassle, but we'll get this figured out asap!

Sounds good, thanks!
I actually wouldn't mind that top bar being a little tallers. Icons feel cramped.
it's either taller or centered with the traffic lights XD
Maybe 48 instead of 40.
then the traffic lights make it feel janky
Yeah. They are an odd size. Like 13 or 14 px or something I think.
Whoah strange does a refresh make the logo reappear for you?
hm not for me
it just logs me out :P
That would not be the functionality one would want. haha.

Oh man, this is great 🙌 One less thing to keep open in the sea of tabs in my browser. Working well for me so far 👍

I will say the Android pinned shortcut version is almost like an app. Much better than iOS equivalent.

It feels too big, especially on a 27" monitor. 1280x900px feels like a nice size to start with, allows users to go smaller (hides sidebar) or larger.

For example Slack / Hipchat are also smaller at start.
Definitely - I'm going to change this behavior back, thanks for the feedback!

Noticing that the desktop app lags a bit compared to the browser version. I'm having slower stuttered typing as well.
Haha that's super weird! They're the same thing 🙃
I did have it open all night.
You'd think the Electron wrapper would get more computing power than a browser tab, but maybe not 🤔
Ohh maybe it's taking up a ton of memory after being open for that long? That's possible!
Awww the logo appeared for me now. haha.
Very odd. Since I didn't close the app.
