What’s New

Version 5.5.49

* [Mac, Windows] *Customizable sidebar *- a couple weeks ago, we launched Customizable Sidebar on web and now you can also access this feature on our desktop apps! As a reminder, here’s what it is: We all use Quip a little differently, and some of your sidebar buttons probably get used a lot more than other ones do. That’s why we’ve made it possible to customize which ones are in there, and in what order they appear. Just right click on the sidebar (or choose “Customize Sidebar” from the account menu) and uncheck anything you don’t want to see. To reorder, just drag.
* [Web, Mac, Windows] The Chat icon has moved up in the sidebar so it is now grouped with all the other icons. Also, your chats will now always be in a drawer. With the customizable sidebar feature, you are able to hide/reorder the chat icon as you wish.

Doesn't take advangate of native features

This app runs with a large amount of memory so that it can basically act as a web view. It doesn't take advantage of the touch bar, and notficiation support isn't enough reason to download the app considering you get that in your browser as well. I'd like to see them do a better job making this feel like a native app with native UI like it used to have.

Docking a Point for Inefficient Update

I use quip for everything and it literally saved my life so many times because I have quick access to important files in situations where I unexpectedly need them. I'm much more organized, acheive my goals faster and easier, and I love the immediate and accurate syncing and accessibility that makes google docs, evernote, apple notes, microsoft onenote etc. seem like stone-age productivity apps. I've already recommended this app to all of my friends. I know they probably put all the formatting options in the doc at the upper part of the page to help the people of the stone-age feel more oriented and comfortable which is good. However, for the adaptable, high-demand users who have a trememnous amount of work to do and have fullly converted and committed to this app, this update has crippled my productivity and efficiency by having to incessantly toggle up and down the page for every nit-pickly little change in format I need to make in the doc. The quick access bar should remain for those who wish to be fast, and the new upper tool bar should stay for those who are converting from more conventional formats and are more comfortable with the editing tools to be in a less efficient position. Please help us lifers stay, well, productive!

buggier than Google Docs

Our team at work uses Quip, but I have yet to find a feature it has that Google Docs doesn't do better except load-time. It's pretty unstable and crashes a few times a week. The UI is frustrating too, for example every time it opens it shows a history of edits that has to be closed for every document every time you open the app.

I downloaded the version from the app store hoping it'd be more up to date but it has an endless loop password-promt. If you get that, download from their web site instead of via app store & you only have the frustrating bugs, not the makes-it-unusable bug.
