Introducing Delta 3.0

As 2020 approaches, we are proud to unveil our last and biggest update of the year. After the major news of eToro acquiring us, we instantly shifted gears to be able to end the year with a splash. It’s safe to say we succeeded. Delta 3.0 is our most refined release to date and puts us in the best position possible to tackle our big 2020 plans.

Let’s jump in.

One thing you’ll immediately notice after updating: the app icon has changed. With Delta 3.0 we’re sunsetting Delta’s greyish blue and are going full steam ahead with a pure black.

You’ll also notice that the triangle has gotten a bit thicker, making the icon stand out more. Overall, we see this as a needed and positive branding evolution, simplifying the disjointed mixture of colour schemes across the application.

This means that as soon as you open Delta 3.0 you’ll get a much cleaner experience. Our previous PRO exclusive OLED-mode is now made available to all users. Are you more a fan of a light look? Easily switch themes via the top-right icon in Settings.

We’ve also changed our typeface, as we were hitting the limits of our previous typeface in terms of font-weights and monospacing. Our new font, Public Sans, is much easier on the eye and allowed us to get rid of some letter-spacing issues as well.

The visual changes don’t end there. Across the entire app, we’ve unified margins, paddings, line-heights, font sizes, font weights... Everything was put under the magnifying glass, literally. As a result, this update is more than ‘just’ a colour and typeface change. The entire user interface has been refreshed.

But no worries! We‘re aware that our award-winning UI doesn’t need a complete overhaul. As such, we kept the foundations intact and tidied up every screen to convey a more coherent feeling. You’ll love it.

For our beloved PRO users, we went the extra mile and created a slicker and more chic experience with our Monochrome Mode. You have to see it to believe it. The entire app, with the exception of the critical green profit and red loss indicators, has gone monochrome. It’s quite special.

And there’s more.

While 3.0 is mostly about our refined user interface and brand change, we’ve also packed some significant under the hood improvements in this update. Performance & speed have gotten a major boost and we’ll have even more improvements on this front in a following minor release later this year.

Aside from that we’ve also restructured the portfolio numbers — the entire screen is now easier to digest. Last but not least: you can now filter on the top 100 coins in the Markets overview. One of the most requested features has finally made it in.

That’s it for Delta 3.0. A more complete, way more beautiful and much faster experience. The perfect foundation for what’s to come next year. More about that after the holidays.

🎄Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from all of us, here at Delta. 🎄

Enjoy!
