Notes about beta version
Below are some points of note that you should be made aware of as a beta tester.
No auto-update mechanism yet
While in beta, we don't have an automatic updating system for the desktop apps. We hope to have this in place in future versions of the app.
Windows installer isn't signed
We don't yet have a certificate set up for the Windows installer, meaning you'll see a warning upon installation of the application on Windows. We expect this to be improved in the next couple of releases.
No multiple tab support
We've decided to make the desktop application a single-window experience, and you won't find any tabs like you would in a normal desktop browser accessing PocketSmith. If you're the kind of user that has multiple PocketSmith tabs open at a time, it might be best to stick with a regular web browser.
No deep desktop integration
At the moment, we don't have any additional desktop integrations in place. The desktop application at this point presents an easy way to always have PocketSmith available, right where you last left it - but we'll be expanding on this base as time goes on.
