This minor update brings a series of improvements to localization in addition to:

  • Improving the speed contacts update when adding, modifying or deleting them
  • Twitter handles now open directly in the Twitter app instead of browser if the user has the app installed
  • New Information Cards for Favourites and Excluded for better explanation of the features.

v1.9.1 – Performance improvements and privacy policy notice

This minor update fixes an application behaviour that caused it to lag when the user performed groups-related actions such as adding or removing groups and assigning contacts to groups. As a result the speed and performance has massively improved.

In addition, this update adds a new notice to inform users about updates to the privacy policy.


v1.9.0 – Widgets, improved search and localization support

This is an exciting update with numerous new improvements and additions.

Support for widgets

This update included two new widgets that users can add to their Today’s view on their iPhone or iPad and see their Favourites and Suggested contacts.

These update automatically every day, and tapping a contact in the widget will open the contact profile in KINN.

New languages support

In addition, KINN is now available in 12 languages and 15 different regions, with added support for including Dutch, Greek, Hebrew, Italian, Polish.

Moreover support for Austrian German has been added with this update.


The search feature in the Contacts Tab has been drastically improved to find matches in the contacts’ fields for email addresses, phone number, company, job title and nickname, in addition to the already supported family and given name.

Other Improvements

The onboarding process has now seen a revamp with a new card-style process, taking users through a new flow and explaining application features.

As always this update brings bug fixes, resolves a memory leak on the Groups tab that would make it sluggish and various other improvements.


In order to better understand what app features are used, where users get stuck and how to improve the app in the future analytics have been added. Analytics been implemented with users’ privacy in mind – no contact details or user contacts information is collected.

The analytics only report on events performed by the user (such as App Launched, Favouriting Contacts, Creating a Group etc) and the settings state – which do not reveal any personal identifiable information. In addition there is no way to track the user across platforms, websites and app, and the analytics are not used for advertising purposes.

Users can choose to opt out of Analytics if they wish to in Settings. For more information please check the updated Privacy Policy.

Hope you enjoy these new improvements.
