Aspera Faspex Mobile for iOS 2.0.0 Release Notes

iOS Faspex Mobile 2.0.0 Release Notes

Product Release (in the iOS App Store): Dec 30, 2013

Release Notes Updated: Dec 30, 2013



This is a major new version focused on providing support for the Faspex server-side dropbox metadata features.

  • If your account is a member of a dropbox workgroup, you are prompted to choose the type of package you want to send - regular or dropbox.

  • Any metadata specified for the dropbox from the server side is included in the compose view to be filled in by the user. Required metadata items (and To/Title) are bolded.

  • Packages received via a dropbox will have any entered metadata shown in the received view.

Other new features include:

  • Videos and images can be named by the user in packages the are being composed for sending. Long-press added items to enter a name.

  • Received packages are displayed with the sizes of the items contained in them.

  • When running on the iPhone, the user can now select multiple items at one time from the Photos gallery picker. The picker now shows the total number of selected items.

  • Refreshing the inbox no longer blocks interaction with the inbox view. You can now do things like compose a new package or receive a package while the inbox is being refreshed.

  • Incorporates an up-to-date fasp release (3.3), including support for the new mobile-friendly rate controller.

  • Cached/remembered recipient addresses are now displayed with a cleaner visual treatment.

  • Swipe-delete is now supported in the transfer queue view, and in the Drafts and Saved views.

  • EAR (Encryption-At-Rest) packages are now always downloaded in encrypted form, with a new Decrypt button (a “key”) which can be used to prompt for the EAR password and decrypt the package assets.
