Apple made a lot of exciting announcements at the WWDC 2021: New features to leverage the power of on-device intelligence, new tools to bridge the performance gap between devices in the Apple ecosystem, and important enhancements for better functionality and performance all round. And so, without wasting any time, our developers got to work to integrate the latest in Apple technology with the best version of Bigin yet.
Bigin is now ready for you on iOS 15 and iPadOS 15. This new update will make your work even more seamless and efficient with features and tools to help you run your business on the go.
Here are some of the updates we’re talking about!
Widgets get a major upgrade
Bigin’s widgets are now smarter and more secure. They’re no longer just sitting on your home screen displaying information. They can pop up automatically in your Smart Stack with information from your schedule such as meetings, calls, and other activities. And they’re more secure than ever, because you can now keep them tucked away in the Today View when your device is locked.
All-new Pipeline view for the iPad
iPad users rejoice! Now, for the first time, you can enjoy the Pipeline View widget on your device. Bonus: it’s extra large! With this iPad-exclusive size option, you can display more information on the home screen of your iPad without compromising on readability, functionality, or visual appeal. From overseeing all aspects of your deals to controlling how and when they move through your pipelines, you can handle all your processes with total ease from your home screen.
On iOS 15, you can fill in a text box without typing a word.
Bigin is fully integrated with Live Text, which means you can scan text instead of typing it in. This feature works so well, you might not even have to type at all.
You can use Live Text to fill in any text box in Bigin: fields, emails, notes, you name it. When you tap on a text box, it will automatically show you an option to scan text. This new feature comes in particularly handy when the text that you need to copy is in an image, a handwritten note, a company sign board, or even the screen of another device.
Drag and Drop
Apple has expanded drag-and-drop for iPhone users. If you’re familiar with using this function on your iPhone, you know that drag-and-drop activity was limited to within a single app. But now, you can drag files from one app and drop them in another app, just like that. With a simple drag-and-drop, you can move images, text, and other documents from Photos, Notes, and Files into Bigin. Whether you need to attach a brochure from the Photos app to your email thread or pick selected text from a website to add to your notes on a customer, Bigin lets you take full advantage of this feature.
