Slack Update Redesigns Mobile UI With Bottom Bar

· Andrew Orr · Cool Stuff Found

Slack version 20.05.10 redesigns the mobile user interface. There’s a new navigation bar at the bottom with four tabs: Home view for the sidebar, DMs for private messages, Mentions to quickly see who mentioned your name/username, and You that contains app settings. I’m personally a fan of these bottom bars; they first started appearing with the iPhone X and it makes all the important bits of the app easy to reach with your thumb. That’s not the only change though. The update also brought a fast way to set reminders, a new compose button, and more. App Store: Slack – Free

Slack Warns it Could Become a Target of Nation State Hacking

· Andrew Orr · Link

Popular workplace app Slack is preparing to go public, and it warns investors it may become a target of nation state hacking.

Companies that are preparing to go public—such as Uber, Lyft, Pinterest, Snapchat, and PagerDuty—all have sections in their S-1 registrations that address the threat of “unauthorized access” to their software, systems, and technologies. However, none of these companies explicitly referred to “organized crime” or “nation-states,” as Slack did in its S-1 filing.

Ms. Haskins also reminds us that Slack doesn’t have end-to-end encryption, and in some cases your boss can download and read your entire Slack history without you knowing.
