Wow... looks like the Nintex dev elves have been busy! So what exactly is this form and task metadata business and better yet, what do these features look like, you say? Well, since I have a shiny new iPhone 7 Plus, I would be happy to share a few screenshots of these new features to give you an idea of what is in store when you update to the latest Nintex Mobile release.
Form and Task Metadata
Nintex Workflow Cloud Tasks
Now, let's cover a feature that many of you asked for, the ability to surface Express Approval tasks assigned via Nintex Workflow Cloud in Nintex Mobile. With this release, if you are logged into NMA as the task assignee, the task will now surface in the Tasks category:
Landscape support for iPhone
Sometimes it can be more ergonomic to use your phone in a landscape (sideways) view. Now, Nintex Mobile supports this behavior.

Multitasking with iOS Split View
Now iOS multitasking is supported on the larger screen devices (iPhone 6 Plus and above). Now you can have another app open like an email client and copy information from it into a Form without having to swap apps!
TouchID, PIN and Enhanced Profile Security
In an effort to make Nintex Mobile even more secure, our team has added the ability to lock down your profile with a PIN as well as with an amazing bit of bio-metric security when the app is placed in the background thanks to iOS and its awesome TouchID capabilities.
So now you can configure Nintex Mobile to use TouchID:
This way, when you attempt to open Nintex Mobile on your Apple TouchID enabled device, you will be prompted to press your finger against the home sensor to unlock the app:
Enhanced Profile Security
When the app is placed in the background its preview image will now show the Nintex Mobile splash screen. This way no one can see any data that may be placed on a form that hasn't been submitted yet:
In addition to these great features, we've laid the groundwork to support further customization of Nintex Mobile via the Nintex AppStudio such as custom walk-through slides, an ability to build custom navigation experiences and more.
Stay tuned for more announcements and details next week during our 2nd annual Nintex InspireX user conference!
