Lots of updates and fixes in this version. We're still working on the issue with the video volume and hope to have that resolved soon. In the meantime, the video volume is all good with your headphones on.
Here’s what we’ve done:
- Adjusted the picture window so the full image sits above the banner ad. Remember, you can press & hold to make the banner ads temporarily disappear
- Improved Twitter and Facebook sharing
- Added the “pull down to refresh” instead of the button to refresh
- Moved videos back into the Latest feed
- Included the author name for each post
- Fixed bugs related to GIFs, commenting, location permissions, thumbnails, zooming in/out
- Improved the app performance through things with fancy acronyms like ARC
- Added an "About" section
- Fixed a bug that caused excess data usage
- Removed on-disk caching to use less memory on your device
- Fixed a bug where clicking on a commenters avatar could hang the app
- Fixed a bug that sometimes prevented image thumbnails from being displayed
TGIF. That's right, GIFS finally work. We've also included post captions, wallpapers and a new app icon.
Pro Tip #532b - When viewing any photo, you can make the banner ad temporarily disappear by pressing the screen and holding your finger down. In the coming months we'll have more news about a no-ads option.
We've got a lot more work to do, but we're getting there.
We've fixed some bugs and improved overall performance. If you experience any crashes after updating the app, try uninstalling and reinstalling the app.
We're going to pick up the pace and rest assured that we will fix everything. We're going to do it piece by piece, so this is the first of several updates. Your support means everything to us and keep the emails comin'! KCCO.
