What’s New

Version 0.28.1

New Features:

Supercharged Sharing Extensions

In November last year, we introduced basic share sheet functionality for iOS. With this release, we’ve upgraded the experience so that adding media files, text, messages, and other content from outside Anytype into your space can be done with just a few taps. The following can now be added to Anytype using iOS share sheet:
* URLs from browser
* Selected texts
* Screenshots
* Photos from library
* Images from website
* Files (pdf, zip etc.)
* Content from apps

Experience Gallery Installation Now Supported

It’s now possible to import experiences from the ANY Experience Gallery on iOS! You’re invited to adopt experiences lovingly created by fellow Anytypers on your iOS, or create your own mobile-first experiences to contribute to the Gallery.


Select & Multi-Select UX Improvements for Relations

We’ve introduced a series of upgrades to improve the UX of editing and managing relations directly from Objects. To access these upgrades, open an Object with Relation-type: Object, Tag, or Status. After doing so, you’ll now find a circular indicator showing which relations have been added to the Object.
From here, you can long-tap the Relations and see the option to Open, Duplicate, or Delete. Next to Tag and Status relations, the circular indicator will also have a number which shows the order in which the selected Relations appear in the target Object. By tapping and untapping these indicators, you can adjust the order of your Tag & Status relations.

Simplified UX for Relation-Editing

Editing the Relations of an Object has never been easier. Whether from Set/Collection view, Featured Relations, the Relations Panel, or Editor view, tap any Relation where it appears, and you’ll see a half-screen menu which can be used to edit the Relation value, without needing to open further windows.

Empty State for Featured Relations Updated

To improve the management of Featured Relations, Objects with Featured Relations that have no value, now show the Relation name.

Confirmation Screen Implemented for Relation Deletion

When deleting a relation, you’ll now be presented with a confirmation screen before the action is completed.

Tag & Status Creation Screen redesigned

As a further improvement to Relations management on mobile, the screen for creating Tags & Statuses has been redesigned for greater simplicity.

Object-Type Menu Redesign

When long-holding the plus button, you will notice that the Types menu has now been grouped into categories: Pinned, List, and Objects. By long-pressing any Type in this menu, you’ll see the options to either ‘Pin’ the Type or ‘Use as Default’.

Pinned Objects Menu
Continuing from the above: pinned Types will show up first in your Type Selection menu when for instance, changing the Object Type.

Dutch Language Added to Interface Options
Thanks to everyone who contributed to Dutch translation, our Dutch-speaking community can now navigate the iOS interface in their native language!

I broke up with Notion

Anytype is a great blend of Notion and Obsidian’s features, while not feeling overly complex to pick up and learn — especially if you're already somewhat familiar with Notion’s workflow.

The speed and ability to work offline is what finally won me over after years of being a daily Notion user. I do miss Notion’s excellent spreadsheet-like tables, but hopefully this is something that will be added down the road.

Great offline Notion alternative

While still in beta, missing some features, and still polishing out UX and onboarding, Anytype provides a vast majority of the functionality of Notion, except its offline and private.

I was fully invested in Notion since their early days, and am now slowly migrating to Anytype because not having offline access to my notes and data isn’t acceptable.

Like Notion, but Encrypted

I love this app! I’ve been using it since the pre-beta release, and I can’t say how happy I am to have found something JUST like Notion, but with privacy at the forefront.

You can take quick notes, make databases and tables, write, and so much more! I love the peace of mind it gives me that it is both stored locally and encrypted. So grateful for this app and the team that created it.
