Mobile redesign

For the past few weeks, we've been working on improving the mobile experience.

You can already install the PWA on iOS and Android, if you haven't already, jump into Safari for iOS or Chrome for Android, browse to and add the application to your home screen.

To push things further, the application now gets a native look on mobile instead of just a classic responsive app:

  • The notch on newest devices is now handled
  • The landing page is now hidden thanks to a specific login page
  • A Tab bar is available with quick access to dashboard, inbox, command menu, etc.
  • A Navigation bar with quick actions and back menu
  • An improved navigation with tabs inside the overview page and a quick switch in the header
  • Lists that feels like you're browsing a native app

We really want to push the PWA technology forward, so stay tuned for upcoming releases with a redesigned Inbox on mobile and Push notifications


When hovering an issue number in the activity page, you could see the title in a tooltip.

From now on, you can hover an issue number, a commit hash or a username anywhere in the application to have a preview in the popover:
