New Features

TIBCO Spotfire Analytics for iOS version 2.10 introduces touch gesture support for temporarily maximizing a visualization and then restoring the original layout when used together with Spotfire 7.12. When viewing a Spotfire page using the Spotfire iOS App, the user can now double tap a visualization to view it full screen. By swiping right or left the view shifts to the next visualization on the page, and double tapping in the maximized mode returns the view to the original full page layout. This capability makes it easier to use Spotfire dashboards designed for Desktop consumption on smaller devices.

iCloud synch - synchronizes App content such as Favorites between any number of iOS devices

Spotfire Analytics for iOS Version 2.8

Swiping between pages now respects the history arrows page navigation mode

The gesture to swipe right or left to navigate pages now respects the page navigation history in case the analysis is set to use the history arrows page navigation mode.

General improvements to swiping between pages

The gesture to swipe right or left to navigate pages is now faster.

The app toolbars follows the visual theme of the analysis

Now the Spotfire App toolbar follows the visual theme of the analysis, so that if you use the dark theme for your analysis, the toolbar color will be matching this.

Support for iPhone

Now, the Spotfire Analytics App supports iPhone as well as iPad.

Handoff to Mac for analysis sessions

If you are viewing a dashboard on your iPhone/iPad and approach a Mac where you are using the same Apple ID as on your iPhone/iPad, a handoff icon appears and lets you start analysing the same analysis

Spotlight Search

You can now use the iOS system feature Spotlight Search to find Spotfire analyses that you recently opened or which you put in your personal Gallery.

3D Touch on the Home screen support for quick access to recent Analyses

Just "hard press" on the Spotfire Analytics icon and a menu shows up that lets you choose from recently used Analyses.

Honoring custom Text Size setting

The Spotfire App now honors the Accessability text size setting so that users that prefer Larger Text on their device will benefit from this also in the Spotfire App.

Authentication Support for custom login pages

The Spotfire App now supports Authentication with custom login pages.

Support for Apple iOS 10

Support for iOS 10 was introduced in a minor update of V2.7 of the App.
