We’re proud to announce that version 0.9.16 introduces (by far) our most highly-requested feature: users can now select “Continue without an account” during sign-up to use Arctype without an account. All of your favorite features—creating workspaces, saving queries, and building dashboards—are all still available without having to sign up:

We also have an updated Home View with direct links to our docs and tutorials for Arctype’s most commonly-used features. After adding a connection to the new workspace, users are redirected to our new Home View, where they can learn more about how to harness Arctype's core features:

As your project (and team) grows and you need access to collaborative features such as cloud syncing and sharing, you can easily transition to an online account without losing any of your workspace data:
