In the first major app update for iOS since October of last year, this release offers users a wealth of new features.

Here are the release notes:

  • Multi-select support when adding attachments means you can now attach more documents at once.
  • Added support for iOS 11 Drag Drop means you can now drag attachments onto cards from other apps on iPad.

Trello also mentions that it is axing its Apple Watch app, although alerts from the iOS app will still be available on Apple Watch.

To focus on bringing you the best iOS app experience we’ve decided to remove the Trello Watch App. Don’t worry, though, you will still be able to receive all of your awesome Trello notifications on the Apple Watch through the iOS app. In the coming months we’ll be adding a bunch of exciting new features to the iOS app.

Another big update in this release is the Custom Fields Power-Up which brings a lot of flexibility and functionality.

Today, we are excited to unveil the Custom Fields Power-Up for mobile, bringing you endless new ways to accessorize your cards with fields text, numbers, checkboxes, dropdown menus, and dates.

Find the perfect fit of form and functionality that your team needs to look fresh:

  • Add text and numerical values, such as contact info or order numbers.
  • Input specific start and end dates for jobs to complete.
  • Include a drop down list of choices (like which fabrics to use).
  • Add a checkbox to cards, because nothing is more satisfying than checking a box complete.
  • View field data on the front of cards for that at-a-glance flare.

Trello is a free download from the App Store with in app purchases and several subscription tiers. You can use a limited version of the app for free, while paid plans start from $4.99/month and go up to $10 and $20/month for business plans.
