A brand new release of Burner is hightailing it to the App Store right now. Who likes to stay up to date? We do. You do, too? Well, that’s why we get along so well.
The latest version of Burner includes some updates for iOS10, support for GIFs (I can hardly believe it!), and a few bug fixes, of course.
GIFs, the gift that keeps on giving
We now support sending and receiving GIFs in messaging. Add a GIF from your favorite GIF keyboard or upload one from photos on your phone. Say it with animation!
Your Burners at a glance in the Today View
Did you know you can add a Burner widget to the Today View on your iPhone? Our latest update delivers an improved preview of all your Burner numbers and their statuses. This is useful for finding your Burner numbers without opening the app or seeing how many minutes and texts you have left.
You can add or remove this widget using the circular “Edit” button from the bottom of the Today View.
Early releases of new features
We’re also rolling out some new features that may not reach everyone right away. You might spot them early and if you have feedback or questions, drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Locations added to number picker
When you choose a phone number, you will now be able to see the city and state it’s associated with. For example, I only want Manhattan phone numbers. It’s easier to get a reservation at Babbo.
For our newest members of the Burner community, we’re introducing some in-app tutorials to help you get your Burner set up. We’re not yet rolling them out for everyone, but if you’re a new user, look out for the new tutorials when you set up your first Burner.
More, better things
A few other improvements we made to the Burner app include:
- Save SMS draft - When you’re writing a message and you don’t send it, it saves as a draft!
- Improved timestamping - Timestamps now show at the minute you sent or received a message.
- More stable colors - When you customize your Burner, the color sticks around even after a re-install. How grand!
