Weekly update: 2017 week #47

This is our weekly update for the 47th week of 2017. The features and fixes might arrive at the desktop and mobile app a few days later than the web version.


  • [Mobile app] We added a bunch of performance optimizations to v1.1.18.
    In our large test document, the time to interaction1 has been reduced from 5 seconds to 3 seconds, and for the small test document the time has been reduced from 3 seconds to 1 second.
    More work will be done to both further cut down time to interaction and to fix the sluggishness with scrolling after the document loads.


  • [Editor] Fixed issue with line break insertion. Before, you need to press Enter twice in order to insert the first line break in a note or item. For more information, please see the PSA.
  • [Editor/minor] Fixed Up key not playing nicely with empty lines in the middle of the note, when pressed at the beginning of a line (link to bug report).

1. Time to interaction is the time required to start interacting with the document.

    I definitely have seen a big difference in how quickly the document loads on the Android app. I have a relatively small shopping list doc and before this upgrade it was a bit annoying at how long it took to load…. now it’s not a problem at all!. Thanks!

    Hey guys, just a passing comment to say thank you for your work! 🙂 I am astonished by the transparency of your progress with these weekly updates and public roadmap; even though not all of the functionality works perfectly, it is very comforting to see that a lot of work is being done every day by you. Wish you all the best luck 🙂

    By the way, have you seen your popularity dynamic? You are closing n with workflowy with an increasing speed https://trends.google.ru/trends/explore?q=dynalist,moo.do,workflowy,notion.so

    Also, have you thought about popularising the app through the use-cases, as guys from Workflowy do? https://blog.workflowy.com/2017/11/30/tag-contexts/

    • Thanks for the kind words and the info! No, we did not know that 🙂

      That’s something we can potentially do in the future! Right now we’re focusing on polishing Dynalist, and the resources are a bit limited. Hope that’s understandable!
