Instead of continuing to pursue a fancy design that at times perplexed people, our iPhone developer and UI guy Brent Simmons decided to simplify things. The wood background is gone, and links now appear highlighted and tappable. If you haven’t already downloaded the new version of Glassboard for iPhone (and soon to be on Android), please do so!
For a more technical breakdown of other changes in 2.3.3, here is a post by Brent. I’m not sure what some of it means but he does reference not crossing streams which all nerds can relate to.
Besides being thrilled about the design and performance changes this month in Glassboard, it also worked out where we are being featured in the New & Noteworthy for Social Networking apps in iTunes! This comes only a short time after having the Android app featured in Google Play. 2013 is off to a great start for Glassboard!
Finally! The most asked for feature is now available in Glassboard: you can delete your messages and comments from the mobile apps. If you are a board chair, you can delete messages and comments from others as well.
For any comment or message that you would like to retract, simply long-press and the pop-up menu will give you the option to delete. Its easy.
Nick Bradbury, our Android dev, goes into some background behind our reasoning (including why we didn’t include deletion in the first place.
There are other additions to the app in this version, of course, including performance enhancements, but message/comment deletion is what we’re most excited about!

Don’t forget that message, bookmark it!
We’ve been there. “Where is that one link? That message that I wanted to save?” No more scrolling through all of your board content to find that one important tidbit. Bookmarks will allow you to save a message or comment- forever if you’d like. Once you bookmark a message, it will always be available in your bookmarks.
Kinda like a yearbook, only shorter and more personal. Export that board!
Some boards have a shelf life of only a week, or maybe just a weekend. After that, we wanted to make it easy for you to share your collection of work with everyone – and now you can. Exporting a board will deliver your entire news feed into a web page that you can share with others, including all pictures and video. It includes every message, photo, video, comment and like for the life of the board so you can relive everything!
More Storage. Share the love.
As a premium member, you’ll jump from 100MB to 1GB of storage across all your boards. Yes, you read that right. All of your boards that you chair will get 1GB of storage. It’s not just you who benefits from this, everyone on your boards will benefit also, you snazzy photog you.
More Boards. A LOT more. Keeeep going…
Don’t run out of boards, ever, because now premium members can create an unlimited number of boards.
Keep the conversation going. Transfer board chair to someone else.
We know how it is. As the board chair you sometimes need to hand the reins over to someone else. Now you can. With Glassboard premium, you can transfer your board chair status over to any other premium board member in your board. Now they can WIELD THE POWAH.
