  • 1.1 – sharing via Twitter, sharing via email, sharing via SMS
  • 1.2 – iOS 4 high-res retina icons, deployment map list
  • 1.3 – locating maps near you
  • 1.4 – edit pending reports, dragging map pins, Checkins
  • 1.5 – bug fixes and minor improvements

We are proud to announce two important new features in the latest version: multi-lingual support and white-label functionality.

Multi-lingual Support

Ushahidi iOS now supports 18 languages including English, French, Spanish, German, Italian, Dutch, Portuguese, Polish, Russian, Chinese-Simplified, Chinese-Traditional, Hindi, Swahili, Arabic, Catalan, Japanese, Greek and Lithuanian.

Huge thank you to the Ushahidi community for helping translate the app, it was sort of fitting that the crowd helped us translate our crowdsourcing app.

White-label Functionality

Ushahidi iOS now supports white-labeling, allowing you to re-brand and publish your own customized stand-alone version to the App Store.
