Although there aren’t new features in this release, there is a notable absence of bugs. We removed a disgruntled bunch of them in the dead of night.
Ratings and Reviews
Nice and handy
This is a great companion app to the website to be able to pull up and comment / update issues without having to bring my laptop.
Adding an Apple Watch extension to receive notifications for comments is a neat touch.
Only reason I gave it 4 Stars is lack of support for dashboards. It would be nice to have this open on my screen to avoid it disappearing between the dozens of tabs I have open. If this is something in the works I have no problems updating to 5 Stars.

It’s getting better, but lacks depth
Look, this iOS app is about 1000% better than the web app from an everyday usability perspective. The web app is slow, buggy, fiddly, and frustrating. This app is fast and responsive, and has been improving steadily.
I would say that the iPad experience really needs help. The new text formatting options are welcome but cumbersome on an iPad. Look at Apple Notes for some clues on how to do this right. Use a popover! Why does it not return to the keyboard after I make a formatting selection?
Finally, the recent swim lanes addition is also helpful, but they aren’t lanes! There’s no way to track a lane across columns. It’s a bizarre choice. And the accumulation of bizarre choices characterize Atlassian’s products.
Poor (or hidden) documentation
I can’t figure out how to add an issue to a sprint on the mobile app. I suspect this is supported as a “sprint” field is shown in the 4th screenshot of the app listing, but I don’t see that in my app. I clicked the “App Support” link in the App Store and searched “add issue to sprint”, returning a bunch of articles about the Web version of JIRA, with no way to filter for articles about the mobile app. I also checked for a link in the app but only found a “send feedback” link.

Hi, sorry to hear that it is difficult to find what you need in our documentation. To add an issue to a sprint: In the issue details screen, where you see list of fields, tap on 'See more'. This will display more fields for the particular issue including Sprint. If you still have trouble finding it, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
