Minuum 2.7: Watch support and a new animation

Version 2.7, available today on the play store, introduces support for many smart watches as well a new animation to make Minuum more intuitive to use.

Smart watch support

You can now install the version of Minuum available on the play store directly onto almost any Android smart watch. Minuum is now more responsive and intelligent about screen size right out the box. For example, this means you could side load the APK from the play store directly onto your Galaxy Gear 1.

If you’re an Omate TrueSmart user, don’t forget that you can download Minuum for free from the Tools section of the OStore.

New full/mini animation

We’re constantly working to make Minuum feel more natural to use and fun to play with. Today we’ve added a new transition animation when you switch between full and mini mode. Just drag up or down on the suggestions bar and try it for yourself


Advanced option to disable auto-spacing

You can now go into “Minuum Settings”->”Experimental & advanced”->”Auto-spacing” to disable auto-spacing. While we strongly recommend you keep auto-spacing on for the best Minuum experience, sometimes you need that extra control.

Bug fixes

  • Auto-correct toggle switch now adapts to colour themes properly
