Coming in 1.2: iPad and iCloud Support

iPad and iCloud are here

It’s been awhile in the working, but two of the biggest features and biggest endeavors are here: iPad and iCloud support! You can use Caramel on any of your iOS devices and the updates will reflect on all of your others. And even better: now you don’t have to look at that weird 4″ screen when using an iPad. Full Support is here!

Use Caramel with iPad and iCloud on version 1.2

iPad support includes almost all of the hallmark features, from multicolumn views to multitasking so you can snap or drag around Caramel as needed to always have it at your fingertips. This really helps when you’re trying to save Recipes from the web, so give it a try!

iCloud Syncing has been added as well, so keeping track and a backup of your lists and recipes across devices has never been simpler. Just turn it on in settings and it will merge your existing items, recipes, and lists into your iCloud documents so you never have to think about it again.

Improved iPhone X and Plus Support

I love the iPhone X! In Caramel 1.2 there is further support for the UI to match existing elements around iOS and better support for Plus iPhones to take advantage of that extra screen space.

Internal and Other Updates

There are also massive improvements to the overall system in Caramel to make it more stable and more fun to use, plus adds the ability for iPad and iCloud as discussed above.

I’ve listened and taken all the feedback and logs submitted by faithful users seriously and have pretty much worked through every issue that has appeared in previous versions and, trust me, there were some strange ones! It’s my goal to make this experience as rock solid as possible. If you experience any problems, please always be sure to report them. I am actively keeping tabs, but additional information always makes hunting bugs faster.

Before I move on, I think it’s worth mentioning that I’ve expanded the icons for categories! There are new general items and food icon categories, hopefully providing something for most uses. Expect additional colors in future versions if they don’t make the 1.2 cut, too!


And thank you!

I also just want to say thanks to all of those who have been using Caramel and have purchased or even just tried it. So far, this journey has been amazing and I couldn’t have done it without your interest and help. I appreciate it all and can’t wait to make Caramel even better.

iPad and iCloud have been hallmark features of any app, so just joining that gives me even more courage even though it took a little time to get right. I hope you enjoy these updates as much as I do 🙂

 

These updates will be in the App Store by Dec 19th
