What's new in version 1.1
-Multiselect along with * auto pack selected images have been added! This is one of the most requested features so far from the community. Our pack tool is version 1.0 and we would love to get your feedback on it.
To use simply click and hold away from images to invoke a marquee tool. Drag select and press the auto pack button located in the image toolbar. Currently, it neatly packs all selected images by averaging the heights while trying to maintain images in order of how they are arranged already. This means Pack will attempt to keep adjacent images close to one another instead of randomizing their order. We will most likely add options to how images are packed in the future.

- *Multi-select improvements. *Click and hold away from images to invoke lasso multi-select marquee. *
-Boards now draw overlapping images in the correct order after closing and reopening your board.
- Multi-select was causing images to draw in the wrong order. ( Resolved)
- All thumbnails remain square in every view mode in the gallery. They were previously changing to incorrect sizes.
-Fixed a bug that caused cropped images to disappear and crash the app
- Fixed a bug that caused crop, flip, and scale to disrupt image orientation
- Fixed animation playback speed for the new Gen of iPad Pros.
- Crashes Resolved. There were several crashes involving importing images. We have gone through every crash log and fixed every bug related to crashes that had logs.

* a small number of users were experiencing a bug that caused them to get a low memory message in their first boards when the boards were relatively empty. We believe that this was a memory crash error and that we have resolved all the bugs related to this issue. We have not however been able to reproduce this bug internally. If you are still experiencing this error that causes a low memory pop up in an empty board, * please contact us directly at * so we can ensure we fully resolve the issue.

We are listening to all feedback for requested features. Please look forward to free updates in the future of more great tools for referencing your favorite inspirational images.

Thank you all so much for the support!
