Revu for iPad Release Notes


Resolved issues
  • This release fixes a few major bugs that prevented users from using iPad normally. To achieve this, we’re reverting functionality to the previous version.
  • After the upgrade, you’ll notice that the Bluebeam Studio login has been restored back to the traditional login style. This is because we removed the newer login functionality to address some underlying issues.
  • If you were logging into Studio using a server in Germany, this option won’t appear in the Sign In dropdown options. If you aren’t experiencing any issues with 3.10.0 and need this functionality, we recommend not upgrading.



After releasing Revu for iPad 3.10.0, we identified an issue that prevents some users from using Revu for iPad normally. This issue is resolved in the 3.10.1 release. If you’re experiencing these issues, download the latest version.
