iOS App Update

Version 2.2.3

iOS 12 is here! We've been busy addressing your feedback and making ACP Tools better than ever. With this update you can now:   
  • Share directions for patients via iMessage, Mail, Print, or other apps that support PDFs on your device
  • Share or print documents designed for providers
  • Search within each category (e.g. Goals of Care)
  • View recently released content (accessible from the Featured screen)
  • Browse more efficiently when using an iPhone (you will see a list instead of a grid)
  • Refresh content from the Featured screen (pull down to refresh resources like on other screens)

We also made under the hood improvements and fixed some bugs:

  • Updates for iOS 12
  • Updates all screens to accommodate different font sizes in accessibility settings
  • Improves the overall setup time of the app when refreshing the library
  • Fixes an issue where images might not load when first installing the app
  • Fixes an issue where clinician accounts might see more content than what is assigned to them
  • Fixes an issue where free content might not refresh properly immediately following user sign out
  • Fixes an issue that might cause the app to crash when showing a collection after a long period of inactivity
  • Fixes an issue where scrolling through a long list of languages would lag or pause intermittently
  • Fixes an issue where the sign in screen would cause a crash if very large text sizes were preferred by the user
  • Fixes an issue where featured categories on the featured content screen might show "0 Collections" on iPad Pro 12.9 devices
  • Fixes an issue where labels like "Looking for More Content" might be cropped when larger text sizes are used
  • Fixes an issue where volume levels might be quieter on iPhones while playing a video
