Super-charged device management

We just released a new version of fruux. In this release we've revamped the way you set up your devices. We're now offering better management features and improved security.

When setting up a new device or application, you're now given the option to create a username and password specific for this device. This greatly improves security, because it also allows you to delete it if you lose it or it gets stolen (fingers crossed that wont happen to you, though!). Another benefit of using custom usernames and passwords is: If you need to change your main fruux password, you wont also have to change the configuration of your devices.

Besides the usual bugfixes and performance optimizations the main changes in this release are:

  • Completely revamped device management.
  • Additional front end polish and tweaks.

Now: Go ahead and login at http://fruux.com to check it out.
