A list of all the major updates made to Speare between Sep, 2023 through Jan, 2024

Updated over a week ago

The following list of updates occurred between September 26th, 2023, and January 31st, 2024.

New Releases

The Home Panel

You can now easily find all of your content in Speare with the new home panel.


Boards allow you to work with pages and stacks side by side. What's great about the new board feature in Speare is that you can now have multiple boards in the same workspace.

Bi-Directional Links

Bi-directional links allow you to connect pages together. Whenever a page has any links pointing to it from other pages, you can now view those backlinks at the top right of a page.

Sharing for Pages & Stacks

Easily share pages and stacks with anyone using a link.

The Changelog

The changelog allows you to see what's changed from release to release. We also made it easily accessible via the Help menu in the app.
