# Tab Bar!
We’ve collected some important buttons in a tab bar. They’re now quicker to navigate, (nearly) always visible and just a bit easier to tap.
- The archive calendar remembers whether 'Daily' or 'Mini' was last selected.
- The archive calendar immediately scrolls to the selected month and year.
- We’ve improved syncing between the app and the web for a puzzle's elapsed time.
- Skipping black squares with a certain combination of settings now works correctly.
- The app recognizes when you solve a puzzle for the first time.
- The Congrats message conceals the solution on iPhone, as it does on iPad. Screenshot your victories and brag away.
