Better iPad app

Features & Improvements

  • Lots of new features on iPad and Android tablets 📜
    We've started optimizing our mobile apps to deliver a more desktop-like experience on iPad and Android tablets. Our work here isn't done — stay tuned for more. But here's what we have so far:
    Keep your sidebar open when you're working in landscape orientation. It'll close automatically when you rotate your tablet to portrait orientation.

    View multiple columns. While you can't create columns on tablets quite yet, you can now see them on your tablet after creating them on desktop.

    Better keyboard support. Use slash commands and keyboard shortcuts, move your cursor with the arrow keys, and select text using shift + arrow keys. Try Ctrl/cmd + \ to open and close the sidebar, or Ctrl/cmd + shift + L for dark mode.

    Menus such as the Share menu, ••• menu, Quick Find, and Notifications now open in a pop-up window instead of full-screen.

  • New emojis — now with skin tone support 🙌🏻🙌🏼🙌🏽🙌🏾🙌🏿
    Whether you're using Notion at work or at home, emoji page icons lighten the mood 😌And they make your pages easier to find later! We updated our page icons to include even more faces, people, flags, foods, and more.

  • Better typography 💮
    We optimized size and spacing across all font styles for better readability, and the Mono style has a new (we think handsomer) look. We also added better support for Chinese, Japanese, Korean, and Cyrillic characters in the Serif and Mono styles.

Bug Fixes & refinements
