iOS App - Image Markups and URL Files


External Release Notes: Mobile iOS v8.26 (January 25, 2024)

New Features and Enhancements

Image Markups 

This release adds a new and powerful feature on the Egnyte iOS app: Image Markups. Users can now add text, freehand writing, drawings, stickers, and more directly to images without leaving the application. The new feature is available for JPEG, PNG, and HEIC file extensions.

For more information on this feature, see Image Markups in the Egnyte iOS App.

URL Files 

Egnyte Mobile App now provides the ability to create Links as Assets or links as files. The Create/Upload menu provides the option to create URL files.

Users can specify the link and provide a name to the same. The link can be to a website, an internal document, or an internal URL.

On tapping on the Save button, a .url file is created with a link specified.

Once the link is clicked, it opens in the previewer where the users can see the link and click on Open to navigate to the same.


Other file options like Share, Comments, Copy, Move, Rename, Edit etc. can be accessed from the context menu.

  • While the flow allows the users to create links with http and https protocols only, users can click on existing link files that use other protocols (e.g. ftp, etc.) to get redirected to the same.

  • ‘Workflow’ feature is not available for ‘Link’ files on the mobile app.

Visual Redesign of Folder Permissions

Version 8.26 ​​brings a fresh and modern look to yet another application component revamped visually to enhance user experience, namely the Folder Permissions feature.


We believe that these visual enhancements will elevate the overall app usage and provide a visually appealing interface for permissions management.
