Vigil 2.0.5 Now Available

Vigil 2.0.5 is now available in the App Store. This update includes several new features, along with performance and bug fix improvements.

Apple Watch Support

Vigil now supports the Apple Watch! Use the quick glance feature to get a quick status update on all your sites, or ping a site right from your wrist. We have a blog post with more details.

SMS Alert Delivery

You can now optionally have alerts delivered via SMS. Sometimes there is nothing as good as SMS for getting out an alert. SMS alert delivery is a new free feature for Professional and Business  plans up to 100 messages per month. Tap on the settings gear, and scroll down for the new phone number field where you can enter the number where you want SMS alerts sent.

With Apple's rollout of TestFlight, we are now able to include more people in beta-testing upcoming Vigil releases. If you are interested in participating, please get in touch with us. We're hard at work on a small Vigil release with two important new features:

  • Broken Link Checking — Let Vigil check your entire site for any outdated or broken links. You can run checks individually, or we'll automatically check your sites regularly depending on your subscription plan.
  • SMS Alert Delivery — We're adding the ability to receive alerts via SMS! You will now be able to add a mobile number to your Vigil account, and receive text alerts, in addition to email and iOS push notifications.

If you'd rather wait, these features should be rolling out for all users in the near future.
