This 2.1.0 version (and its update to 2.1.1) is focused on providing improved video encoding support, and fixes for support of server-side metadata that was introduced in the earlier 2.0 version. Note that this new version requires iOS 7 or higher.

  • A user can now choose 720 (1280x720) or 1080 (1920x1080) as a default video resolution.
  • Low, medium and high encoding settings now primarily control the video bit rate (low: 2Mbps; medium: 4 Mbps; and high: 8Mbps).
  • Details of the chosen video encoding settings are now provided in the Settings to reduce confusion about the encoding settings.
  • The default video encoding settings can be overridden when adding video assets to a new package.
  • The app user interface has been made more consistent with the standard iOS 7 app style.
  • Dropboxes are now displayed in alphabetic order, when composing a package.
  • Note field for a new package now uses sentence case.
  • You can now configure whether to always show the file names of files that have been added to the package.
  • The photo/video picker will now show the video time in the same format as the Photos app.
