I would like to take this opportunity to provide some insights on the upcoming release of EasySocial Mobile Native App version 2.0. This is the first major release for native app and I am extremely thrilled to share this with you. Read on to learn more.
🌒 Dark Mode
Probably one of the most requested feature is the dark mode support. The native app will now include dark mode support. Users would have the ability to toggle between dark mode in 2.0
🏦 Monetization with Admob
Another important aspect for running a social network is to be able to sustain and the only way to do that is to monetize from visitors of your site or app. With this release, you will be able to setup Admob along with your native app. It is completely optional.
📅 Event Listings for Groups
Event & Video Listings for Groups
Prior to this update, it wasn't possible to list events under a group on the native app. With this release, your users would be able to view events that are created in the group.
📹 Video Listings for Clusters (Groups, Pages and Events)
Video Listing for Clusters
We have also added the feature to list videos under Groups, Events and Pages. Videos that are uploaded on the respective pages, would appear under the Videos tab accordingly.
Activity Stream Filters
Activity Stream Filtering
This release also includes the ability to filter activity streams by specific filters allowing your users to curate their activity streams.
🎞 Native Video Uploads
Native Video Upload Support
Native video uploads from mobile devices are now supported and your users can now upload videos directly from their mobile device!
🎶 Native Audio Uploads
Similar to native video upload support, we also added support for native audio uploads and users from the site can now upload audio files directly from their mobile devices.
🖼 Choose From Photos
You can now choose photos from your existing photo albums and use them as your profile picture or the picture for your groups, events and pages.
🗂 Category Filtering
Users can now filter audios and videos using the category filtering option in the app.
Moving forward, the Native app will now use a major version format, e.g: 2.0, 2.1, 2.2 etc. The last fragment will now automatically be the build number as Apple does not allow you to re-submit an app with the same build number.
Other Notable Changes
Apart from these awesome additions, the team also spent a lot of time improving and updating existing functionality. During this process, they also killed quite a number of 🔪 🐛
- Photo titles can now be modified on the app
- Fixed issue with errors generated on the screen of editing a page
- Fixed preview issues when reposting an album with multiple pictures
- Addressed issue with display of mood images on the app
- Fixed issues with deprecated lifecycle notices from React
- Updated aspect ratio of cover photo to be well suitable for most photos
- Added an end notice when the user reaches to the end of the activity stream and there is nothing else to load
The new pricing tier is now made more affordable for customers to start building their native apps. You sign-up for the first month at $299 and only need to fork out $129 on subsequent months. If you decide to not continue, you can cancel the subscription at any point of time.
What is the difference compared to the previous pricing model
With the new pricing model, you will no longer be able to download the source codes to build internally. You can only create your builds with Titan and manage your builds via Titan.
This is why we decided to switch to a monthly plan instead to make it more affordable and at the same time, be able to provide a seamless build experience.
What is the cost for reactivation?
Once your subscription expires, you can re-activate your subscription at the price of $199. You do not need to pay the full price of $299 for the first month.
Can I still subscribe to the previous plan?
I am an early adopter, can I renew using the previous pricing tier?
If you do not want to switch to the new pricing plan, yes you can. On the dashboard, you just need to click on the
Renew button to renew based on the previous pricing tier
