There’s a lot you can do with Pocket – and that’s what makes it the power play for Rex users. You can smash through a bunch of tasks with your morning coffee - making calls, adding buyer feedback, chatting to your team and updating listings. Generally just keeping up with a constantly evolving stream of consciousness - it’s easy to find yourself 10 screens deep inside our Rex mobile app.
But what happens if a vendor has just called and you need to look them up, right when you were in the middle of something? You’d have to slam the back button repeatedly until you’re greeted with the menu, closing everything you had open. We know that's not ideal.
What's actually new:
So we’ve acted on the helpful feedback from enthusiastic Pocket users. We've introduced a new bottom navigation bar that lets you access the search screen, the quick creation menu and the main menu from anywhere inside the app. No more repeated tapping of the back button!
This bottom navigation bar works the same as the navigation bars in many other iOS and Android apps like Instagram or Facebook. But if you’re not super tech savvy, or haven’t used many apps that have a bar like this, here’s a few tips:
- You can swipe right on the edge of the screen to go back to the previous screen. For iOS users, this saves you having to reach for the back button at the top of the screen. Your thumb will thank you!
- If you’re already on the Home or Search tab, tapping the icon will take you back to the Main Menu or Search screen respectively.
If you’re a power user of Pocket, this navigation bar is a bit of a game changer. Switching back into a previously open tab preserves whatever screens you had open, making life a lot easier if you need to jump back and forth between multiple different records.
This small improvement goes a long way to making your Pocket experience even smoother.
The Rex mobile app is available on Apple iOS and Android.
If you already have Pocket downloaded, make sure to update to the latest version to see these changes in action!
