Any future updates to Indigo Touch?

There hasn't been any work on Indigo Touch iOS app for quite a while.

(I don't see anything mentioned in the Indigo 7.3.0 release notes, but haven't loaded it yet. If there is new stuff, please point me that way.)

I'm wondering if there are any plans for any significant changes or improvements. The "world of UI" has evolved quite a bit but Indigo Touch has stayed the same.

Many requests for substantive features have been logged here in the past. I won't go through the full laundry list, but modern capabilities like geofencing, and lots more haven't been addressed.

Other than the obligatory refresh when Apple does something that totally breaks it (possible every June with WWDC preview of Apple's software direction/evolution), is anything even on the planning board?

We don't discuss our feature roadmap publicly, but we know Indigo Touch is feeling a bit neglected.

I’ve been thinking that Shortcuts hooks for Indigo Touch might be useful, but iOS 13 may give Shortcuts full access to HomeKit and then I could do everything I want via HomeKit Bridge.

It would be really nice to finally utilize the screen of an iPhone Max.

That, plus the ability to edit triggers and schedules would make it infinitely more useful!

Agree Shortcuts hook would be great. There are some things I don't want to expose to the Home app (sometimes Siri "mis-hears" and turns off an entire room instead of a light in that room, for example. I have virtual devices that I need to toggle that would show to the Home app as switches and get turned off).

Aww I was disappointed when I saw an indigo touch update this morning, but it was just apple updating the certificate.

Amazing it still works so well! :-) We definitely have plans for a new version on the drawing board.

And thanks to Apple for actually updating the certificate for us. I was pleasantly surprised when I got the email from them saying they were doing that the other day.

Re: Any future updates to Indigo Touch?

Just wanted to mention that Indigo Touch works just fine on an M1 Mac. Not that you'd really need it there but I tried it and it works.

Indigo touch works pretty well. Some people may complain it hasn't been updated in a while, but frankly the functionality is great.

My biggest request for the future would be to support Shortcuts, so we could script it a bit. But there are a lot of work-arounds available for that (namely via the Homekit plugin) so I'm content.
