Evomail+ 2.0.1 update brings iPad support, bug fixes

EvomailPlusiPadFollowing the app’s launch last week, Evomail+ has been updated to version 2.0.1 today. The standout feature of this release is iPad support; though not a dedicated experience – for now the iPad UI is a blown-up version of the iPhone app – the app now runs fullscreen on an iPad, and Evomail believes it still delivers users a “quality experience” for the time being. The company is planning a customized iPad UI for a future update. Furthermore, Evomail says they are busy improving their EvoCloud backend, noting that they’ve added a number of new servers since launch. A good sign that will hopefully help improve their server-side infrastructure, as I noted some issues with EvoCloud in my review last week.

The update also includes your standard bug fixes and other improvements. Evomail+ for iOS 7 is available for free on the App Store.

art_smallIn our first episode of the new year, we discuss some of the news we missed over the holiday break, including Kara Swisher and Walt Mossberg’s new site Re/code, Biz Stone’s new app Jelly, and the recently released iOS 7 jailbreak. Then we take a deep dive into CES 2014, discussing “the internet of things” and some of our favourite products from the show this year: Pebble Steel, LG’s webOS TV, PlayStation Now, Oculus Rift’s Crystal Cove prototype, Sony’s Xperia Z1 Compact, and – of course – 4K Televisions.

The Segue, Episode 12: Yellow Boxes Falling From The Sky

Plus our thoughts on Jessica Lessin’s premium (and pricey) new tech publication, a “review” of the Retina iPad mini, and a discussion about messaging apps. Bonus points if you listen past the ending music for our first “after dark” shenanigans.
