New feature: Quick adds

Buddy is currently in the transition period in which every major view is being redesigned to better accommodate the ever-growing list of upcoming features. We've already updated navigation and released new projects, integrations and source code views, with Pipelines securing the spot for the next Big Thing™️.

In the meantime, we try to release a cool feature from time to time—just to remind you how awesome Buddy is! One of such features are quick adds. While not as significant as the recent iOS builds, they are still an improvement that makes the everyday life of a developer a tad easier.

Here's an example how it works on the Pipelines tab:
