2020 summary

Hooray, 2020 is almost over!

It’s been a challenging year for all of humanity. It’s no surprise that many have been waiting for the year to go away. No doubt 2020 has shaken us up — changing how we work, communicate, and have fun.

Yet, this year has been truly revealing, giving us the possibility to see new alternatives. Some changes have turned out to be beneficial, while others have helped us better appreciate the things we took for granted.

We all hope to return to simple pre-2020 pleasures such as going to concerts or flying abroad for the weekend. However, it’s essential to acknowledge the precious lesson of 2020: the whole world can unpredictably change in a year, and we should be ready to change with it.

Nimbus Suite solutions for the blended education

The coronavirus pandemic that began in March 2020 caused the largest disruption of the education system in history, affecting almost 1.6 billion students in more than 190 countries. The closure of schools and other educational institutions affected 94 percent of students worldwide and up to 99 percent in low- and lower-middle-income countries.

According to a policy brief by the United Nations (August 2020), school closures will not only have immediate economic consequences, but also long-lasting effects. Education accounts for a third of key dimensions in the Human Development Index. For the first time since its conception, the Human Development Index will likely show a striking drop (Figure 1).

Such disappointing forecasts required a quick response from educational institutions.

Figure 1. Human development is facing an unprecedented hit since the concept was introduced in 1990

New camera in Nimbus Clipper for Android – a convenient pocket scanner for your documents

These days, smartphone cameras could easily replace the standard snapshot cameras. Pictures taken with cellphones, especially with proper lighting, are pretty good in quality.

 New tag panel

We know that may users did not like the old way of adding tags. In the new version we added another, more simple and convenient way. Now adding tags does not happen in a separate window rather than on the tag panel. You can add tags  yourself or choose from suggested variants. Just the way it was with the old tag panel, you can select a few tags at once. An important thing to mention – suggested tags are sorted in the same way as on the tag list.

We would also like to remind you that besides adding and editing, there are other ways you can work with tags in Nimbus Note:

– searching for notes by tags;
operations with tags, such as selecting multiple tags and excluding tags;
– quick access to note list by double clicking on a tag.

and a lot more.

Besides the tag aspect, we fixed many other bugs:

– Fixed issue with values changing when lists were scrolled through;

– Fixed issue with the note getting messed up when the bin was emptied;

– Fixed issue with reminders going off from out of the bin;

– Fixed issues with links in Only for reading mode;

– Improved performance when images are inserted in a note;

– Fixed issue with tags not getting deleted on the app after being deleted from the server;

– Possibility to hide/show tags without notes;

– Fixed other problems;

Saved Replies – your trusty aide when using Gmail

Hundreds of people contact our support service daily. Many questions are nearly identical and naturally so are the answers to them. However, time still has to be spent to type the answer. We couldn’t tolerate this waste of time for long and came up with Saved Replies – an app for Gmail. You can use it to create quick replies and insert them in your outgoing messages. For the app to work, a Nimbus Note account must be used, so all your replies are synchronized and you can use them on any computer.

It’s worth mentioning that you can insert in your letter not just the text, but any note from your Nimbus Note account, e.g. pictures, tables etc.

New Nimbus Note for iPhone – web-cliper and timeout for passcode

Nimbus Web Clipper now in iPhone

Saving various information from the internet is one of the most popular features in Nimbus Note. While special separate clippers are used for desktop browsers, we decided not to make a separate app for iPhone, packing the clipper right into the app itself.

By tapping on the Web-clipper icon you get to our browser and can open the internet page  you need. At that point you can:

– Save an article from a site (similar to Pocket or Instapaper);
– Save just the selected text fragment;
– Save a screenshot of the internet page;

You can also set folder and tags for your future note.

 

You can set time-out for the pass code feature.

The pass code feature is undoubtedly useful if you do not want for anyone else to gain access to your notes. But it may not be very convenient to be asked for the pass code every time when opening the app. In the new version of Nimbus Note you can set the pass code timeout yourself.

New version of Nimbus Screenshot and Screencast for Chrome

A new version of Nimbus Screenshot and Screencast for Google Chrome has been released.

Main changes:

You can stop recording a video using a Hotkey

A handy feature, especially when recording another window. Now you don’t need to go back to the Google Chrome browser window to stop the recording – just press a key combination ctrl+shift+0

Changes in the panel for sending screenshots

Some users complained that the process of sending screenshots to Nimbus Note is not quite intuitive. We modified the panels just a tad and here’s the result:

– you can send screenshots to Nimbus Note using the top or the bottom button Send to Nimbus;
– you can send the screenshot straight to the target folder using a special key (same applies to sending to Slack).

Lot’s of other fixes…

We also fixed plenty of other issues that prevented the app from working properly on certain websites. If you spot any other issues, please let us know right away.
