Work offline with Hightail’s iOS app update


November 7, 2013

We’ve just released a major update to the Hightail iPhone and iPad apps, bringing some great new features to your mobile device.

We’re particularly excited about Offline Files, which allows you to mark important files as Offline so the next time you’re unable to connect to the internet, you can still get to work. Any edits or changes you make to your file are updated automatically when you’re back online. With our updated app, Airplane Mode is now a lot more productive.

Another great new feature is the ability to send multiple files at the same time. Whether you want to share photos directly from your device or a batch of documents from your Hightail folders, simply check as many files as you need and send them all in one go.

We’ve also reorganized the app’s home screen to ensure your most-used features are just a tap away. If you’re a longtime user of our iPhone app, you may remember that Tracker – the feature that allows you to keep tabs on the files you’ve sent and received – used to be a separate app. We’ve now merged this useful tool with the main app and made it easy to access from the home screen, so you can do everything in one place.

The latest version of our iPhone and iPad apps also updates some interactive elements to match the new iOS7 experience, so feel free to play around with it once you’ve downloaded the update. Here is a detailed list of Hightail app goodness:

  • New home page: we’ve put great features like Tracker and Offline Files at your fingertips
  • Offline Files: mark files as Offline and work on them when you’re not connected to the internet
  • Send multiple files
  • Temporary storage control: easily monitor and clear your offline storage in Settings
  • Enhanced responsiveness: downloads and uploads take place in the background while you continue to use the app
  • Various fixes and improvements

If you don’t already have Hightail for iPhone and iPad, now is a great time to get started, you can download them for free. If you already have the app, you can use that link to get your update. Don’t forget to tell us what you think and rate us on the App Store.

    I just started using the multiple file send, and its a great improvement. I haven’t tried offline yet, but like the idea – especially as I use an iPad most of the time, and try to stick to wifi access points.

    Great update to a very easy to use and effective product
