Improved compatibility with future versions of iOS

Best organizing app
Quip currently offers the best organization app for integrating excel, calendar, to-do list, with note taking application. It allows for visible organization that is separate from the desktop folders, stored on an iCloud, accessible from all Quip apps (MacBook, iPad, and iPhone).
It's the perfect to-do list that syncs across all devices, the perfect note taker that can handle copious amounts of notes, and the best writer.
The only room for improvement is the initial interface on opening the folders. Although it is recommended for collaboration, I use quip for personal purposes and it has been unclear how to best reach the folders in my Private folder without having to click multiple times to get there. There may be a shortcut I am not aware of, but if so, that would be a room for improving user interface.
Great idea but could be better
How organization was looking for a tool for collaboration that would help simplify things. Will use Google drive and other tools, but to be frank, the mess and spiderweb of files has become overwhelming it is increasingly difficult to manage. We looked at Quip as a possible solution to help us to manage collaboration any more simple and streamlined way.
Quit passes benefits and we continue to use Quip as a tool. It makes things a lot easier than working in Google and having to open multiple types of files and documents. You can use it on the web you can use a clients on your computer on Mac and you can use it on an iPhone or tablet. It’s very simple and straightforward.
However, Quip does have a lot of quirks and limitations that you need to work around them through. Sharing files with people outside of your organization is not possible. Documents or files that you create within quip are absolutely not ready for sharing with people outside your organization because of issues like formatting. In general there’s a lot of opportunity to improve quip from the user experience standpoint and from a functionality perspective as well. The only question is how does quip achieve all of this without becoming big in burdensome such as Evernote.
Lots of small issues
Quip started out as a word processor designed with mobile devices in mind, but over the years has not kept up with that original vision. Lots of small issues hamper the performance on mobile devices. For instance, on the iPad, the cursor is often hidden behind a split keyboard and I am forced to add a lot of extra line breaks to a document so that I can push the cursor above the keyboard and actually see what I am typing. The split keyboard on the iPad is also handled poorly. Even with the keyboard split, the space between the keys is still filled in with an opaque gray area, blocking out a large section of the screen. In addition, there are no options for what browser should be used to open links, which was probably okay in 2015, but most apps nowadays give options.
Also, just a thought, but if Quip gave me an option to pay money and unlock the ability to change the color of the app icon, I would do it in a heartbeat. Or maybe even revert to the original icon. See the popular calculator app PCalc if you need an example of how it’s done.
