Can you elaborate a bit more what a card-like design consists of? A weblink to examples or screenshots would help.
Sorry, looks like that Streamable video in my post was deleted. You can see here how when editing an entry in the app there’s no “card-like” design and pulling down does not dismiss the entry - but here, when autofilling an entry, there’s that “card-like” design. That design is what a lot of apps switched to when iOS 13 came out to keep consistent with iOS, and it’s more user-friendly with how you can pull down to dismiss the page you’re on. Now I realize Bitwarden itself is also inconsistent with how there’s no card design in-app but there is when autofilling.
I find myself to be a bit less enthusiastic in that way with their iOS apps. They seem to be lacking a bit the UI/UX quality the web/extension versions bring to the table.
What do you feel is missing from the iOS apps? I think they’re pretty good - of course, they don’t have full functionality, but it’s understandable that some things can only be changed from the Web Vault.
And another point is: are those iOS apps in fact that important (for editing the vault’s content for example)? Since editing login-entries and other stuff in the vault, we can do directly through the fantastic webversion or even Chrome extension…
They are just there to make iOS auto-fill integration possible really, at least that’s how I look at it, so what would be the importance to beef up their interfaces?
The iOS apps aren’t super important but I think they’re still relatively important. A good mobile app is something I look for when looking for a good a password manager. If I had to edit an entry on my phone I would much rather do so in the mobile app than the web vault as the web vault isn’t particularly optimized for devices with smaller screens like a phone. And although the mobile app doesn’t have to be perfect (because most of the time you’re likely going to be editing vault entries on a PC where you can use the desktop app or web vault), I think it should still be good for the times you might be editing entries or adding an entry on-the-go.
If you have no laptop/desktop, you can goto Safari in iPadOS and make use of the excellent webversion of Bitwarden anyway. So, what is the time one would really spend inside the native Bitwarden iOS apps?
What about those who might not have a PC or an iPad? Then their only option would be to use their phone…and the web vault isn’t really optimized for a phone’s screen size so their only satisfactory option would be to use the mobile app.
In response to your second reply:

That’s not the card-like design I was talking about, apologies for the confusion. For some reason Streamable deleted my video. See this video for an example of the card-like design I’m talking about.
