Chat-Like Email App Hop Updated With Support For Group Collaboration And More

June 17, 2014
Hop, the app that turns regular emails into chat-like streams, has just received a major update that delivers a number of enhancements. Foremost among these enhancements is the introduction of Hop Groups. Hop Groups enable you to easily communicate and collaborate with your friends and colleagues via email. You start a group by adding members using only their email addresses, regardless of whether they have Hop or not. And since you're technically using email, you're free to add any document, photo, video, link, or any other file you'd like to share. Those who don't use Hop can view the group timeline with the link that Hop automatically generates for the group, with the shared files available to view as attachments. In addition to Hop Groups, the latest update to Hop includes revamped phone contacts, a major redesign, more notifications, and customizations, among other improvements:
  • Contacts - Improved local contacts integration and simpler multi select
  • Design - we redesigned every pixel, literally :)
  • Attachments View - view all conversation attachments using the conversation menu or rotate your iPhone to landscape
  • Smart Notifications - Now with more sounds so you know if you need to take the phone out of your pocket :)
  • Photo Picker - Improved with multi photo selection
  • Unread View - Improved with an option to mark all as read
  • New Trick - Long press the back button in conversation to mark it unread
  • New Preferences - Disable message preview in notifications, control what history included in reply for old-school email clients
  • Bug fixes and improvements
Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad running iOS 6.0 or later, Hop is available on the App Store for free. Released in October last year for iPhone and iPod touch, Hop made the jump to iPad with its universal update last February.
