What’s new in this version? A couple of new features, some user interface updates and some bugs have been squashed.

The thing you will notice the most is the user interface for tasks has been cleaned up significantly. As the app has evolved and features were added over time, it became increasingly difficult to place some of the user interface elements in a way that made sense while remaining aesthetically pleasing. The solution in v2.7 and going forward was to move most of the information into a new ‘task bar’ which looks cleaner and is easy to scan at a glance.

Additionally there is a new option in Task Rocket settings that lets you decide to have the attachment shown by default, or if you prefer to toggle their view state with a click/tap.
