SocialSafe v6.6.3 Released – Create PDFs fast, from almost everywhere, plus lots of improvements

It’s been a little quiet on the release front recently, but that doesn’t mean we’ve been resting on our laurels… Quite the opposite in fact. Our team of developers has been hard at work for the last couple of months improving the app, and now we’re proud to release SocialSafe v6.6.3.

This update includes improvements to not only the tangible existing features of the app, but also to the inner workings of SocialSafe that will bear fruit later this year when other functionality is introduced, along with the first version of SocialSafe for iOS.

The main improvement we’ve made in this release has always been part of our plan, and is something that a lot of people requested as soon as we introduced PDF Export from Journal View last year. SocialSafe v6.6.3 now allows you to create PDFs of your content from not only the Journal, but also to selectively mark content for PDFs from the Accounts View, from Search results, from individual backups and from your Collections. [Click here to see a short video on how to create a Collection within SocialSafe].

SocialSafe creates PDFs from your social network content

The mechanism by which you’d select content for a PDF from any of these content views is exactly the same as it would be if you were creating a PDF from the Journal in previous version, only when you click on the ‘Do More’ button you’ll see the PDF option appearing in other areas of the app. To create a PDF from the contents of a Collection, simply got to your Collection and click on the Do More button to select the items as you would do if you were creating a PDF from within the Journal.

Exporting a PDF

Please bear in mind that it can take a little while to output content for a PDF if you have a particularly large number of items selected for export.

In terms of other noticeable changes in this release, we’ve fixed plenty of bugs, the most significant of which will result in noticeable improvements to the performance of the Scheduler and the PDF export. We’ve also fixed a number of other minor issues reported to us by some users who were experiencing problems.

As ever, we’re grateful to all of you that continue to give us feedback, as that helps us to constantly improve your app, so thank you very much!

Everything else we’ve incorporated into SocialSafe v6.6.3 is ‘under the hood’ so to speak, so you won’t necessarily see any other changes right now, but it’s important work that will enable us to make Device Independence and SocialSafe for iOS a possibility later this year.

We’ve still got plenty on the to-do list for the next few months, so if your suggestion didn’t make the cut this time around do not despair! You can also submit your suggestions publicly via our UserVoice feedback forum, and that way other people can vote on the posts to move things further to the top of our work list.

Any other feedback is always gratefully received, so please feel free to get in touch on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn or YouTube.

We hope you all enjoy SocialSafe v.6.6.3!
