Another great update week is upon us! Both iOS and Android have been updated and released for download packing more mobile cadding goodness.  Many of the improvements you will notice are relatively new on the web client and have been thoughtfully implemented for touch.  Let's take a look...
Highlights include:
  1. NEW Rendering modes - All the familiar rendering modes from the web client are now available from the view cube.  (iOS)

  2. NEW Variables - Variables can now be created and used from mobile.  (iOS)

  3. NEW Box select - Use a two finger tap and hold to initiate the box select tool.  Size, position and select modes of selection. (iOS)

  4. NEW Derived feature - Creation of derived features is now supported on mobile.  (iOS)

  5. NEW Sketch text - Insert, position and dimension sketch text. (Android)

  6. NEW Copy & paste sketches and sketch entities. (Android)

  7. NEW Invite friends - Invite friends to Onshape from mobile. (Android)

Both Android and iOS have continued to bring parity to mobile with every release making mobile a first class citizen of CAD.  Our teams here are always rethinking the way to approach common CAD workflows to fit on smaller, touch-based devices.  

Both updates are available for download from either the Apple App Store or Google Play now so hit UPDATE and let us know what you think!  ~Lou
