We believe spending less time in your inbox is a good thing for productivity. With over 2 hours of our day consumed by email, it's easy to get distracted by new emails when we're hard at work. Next time you're looking for that PDF that was emailed to you a week ago, see it instantly without having to open your mail app.

We recently updated Cubes to make it even easier to find that PDF. Our latest version lets you customize the thumbnail preview card style from small tiles to large cards.

How does it work?

The quickest way to change the preview style is with a simple 'Press and Hold' on the Library tab icon.

You'll be presented with the three options to choose from and the view will update immediately to the desired style.

This can be done at any time and you can easily go in and out of different styles on the fly. Alternatively, you can select your desired card style through the Settings tab.

Small Tiles

Small tiles lets you see 15 files at a time on an iPhone 7. It's a nice way to scroll through to older files very quickly.

Large Cards

Our new Large cards display 2 files at a time, which is great to sift through your most recent files. Of course, we still have our classic Pinterest-like cards that display 3-5 files at a time.

Pinterest Style

I find myself switching through the different card styles routinely, like shifting through the gears of a manual gearbox. If the file I need is a few weeks ago, I'll zoom out to small tiles to cover a lot of ground quickly. I'm always amazed at how well we remember visual cues from stuff we've seen before. When it's time to peruse my new files and links I'll switch to large cards where I can see more of the details at a relaxed pace.

Hope you enjoy this new feature. Give it a try the next time you open your Cubes app.
