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.

KINN is a free contacts app for iOS and you can download it from the App Store and you can follow updates on Twitter.
