Quip gets connected, launches 'Integrations' for services including Twitter, Dropbox

September 27, 2014

Quip, the popular productivity suite that combines a chatroom and document management system in one single (and free) app, is branching out and integrating a slew of additional services through a new “Quip Integrations” feature.

Outlined in a recently published blog post, the team behind Quip explains that the new feature makes it possible for users to receive notifications from a wide range of connected services from within the Quip app:

Integrations enable you to connect hundreds of other products, including Dropbox, Zendesk, JIRA and more, directly to Quip. When you add an Integration, you can receive messages about activity on these other services. You can attach these messages to a group chat or a document, and your whole team can share, interact, and discuss the messages together. With Integrations, everything you add becomes something you can collaborate on, right from your phone.

Plus, because IFTTT (“If This, Then That”) is supported by the new feature, in turn some 300 connected services can be integrated within Quip. Impressive, right?

Best of all, Quip Integrations uses a public API, meaning there’s no ceiling limiting the number of applications that can connect to the app. Here’s a complete overview of what Quip Integrations can do, as outlined in the aforementioned blog post:

  • Mentions of your company or brand on Twitter
  • GitHub commits for your team
  • Files added to a Dropbox or Google Drive folder
  • Emails sent to a team mailing list
  • PagerDuty, Jenkins, and Crashlytics updates
  • Reviews of your app in the iTunes App Store
  • Customers added to Stripe, Square, or Salesforce
  • News from your favorite RSS feed
  • Alerts for local weather, Craigslist posts, or public transit
  • SMS messages or phone calls to a specific number
  • Calendar updates when an event starts or a project is due
  • Messages sent to Slack, Campfire, or a Facebook Group
  • Ticket created in ZenDesk or JIRA

You can download Quip free of charge on the App Store, and it’s optimized for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.

On Sept. 17, the app received an update adding support for iOS 8 (including extensions) and optimization for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.
