20.3 — August 23, 2020

Another small update this time.

  • Even more undo fixes. I really think it works this time?
  • Better preview when sharing animations.
  • The thumbnails in the gallery now have more accurate colors. Make any change to an existing animation to “fix” the thumbnail.
  • Fixed the current version number in settings; it now shows the correct version number instead of “20.0”.

20.2 — July 7, 2020

This release is just a bit of spit and polish on everything.

  • Fixed a few bugs related to undo.
  • Fixed a bug where sometimes a new page would duplicate the previous page.
  • Minor visual tweaks (buttons look button-ier)

20.1 — May 18, 2020

This new version of Kineo adds support for the new keyboard and cursor integration on iPad. You can now use a trackpad or mouse to select images, draw, and more!

This version also includes:

  • Fixing a bug where undoing a drawing would not save
  • Improvements to VoiceOver support for looping or bouncing an animation
  • Minor user interface improvements

20.0 — April 1, 2020

Kineo is back! I figured a decade without an update was enough time to need more than just a minor update, so let's do a full reboot! Brand-new features include:

  • Multiple drawing tools
  • iCloud syncing
  • Video export and sharing
  • iMessage sticker support

1.3 — April 1, 2010

Added iPad universal version.

1.2.1 — February 3, 2010

The release notes for this version are lost to history. As are the release notes (and, for that matter, the release date) for versions 1.2, 1.1.1, 1.1, 1.0.5, 1.0.3, 1.0.2, and 1.0.1. The App Store literally didn’t track release dates before that. I don’t know where I’d even go to look up that kind of information. Sorry. :(

And yes, that list of release versions is correct. No, I don’t know why there isn’t a 1.0.4. I blame App Review Gremlins.

1.0 — August 4, 2008
