EasySocial Mobile Native App v2.0

EasySocial Mobile Native App v2.0
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.

馃寬 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


馃彟  Monetization with Admob

Admob Integrations


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.


馃搮  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.


馃摴  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.

馃帪  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!


馃幎  Native Audio Uploads

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.


馃柤  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.


馃梻  Category Filtering


Users can now filter audios and videos using the category filtering option in the app.


Version Changes

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 馃敧 馃悰

  • 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

Pricing Updates

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.

Looks nice. Is it possible to show/hide admob advertising based on the user profile type?

Thank you Anthony. Currently the admob applies to all users within the app but please feel free to post a feature request at https://stackideas.com/voices/esnative

Looks great! Do you have a sample app we can test? Unfortunately, feels like this may be a bit expensive for unfunded startups, is it aimed more at established communities? US$129/month is a lot of $AU..

You can try it out with our public app:

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.stackideas.social&;hl=en

https://apps.apple.com/us/app/easysocial-by-stackideas/id1483202959

All you need to do is to enter the following:


URL: https://native.easysocial.app
Username: demo

Hey Mark, just tried it out, looks great! Is or will there be an integration with Easyblog or is this something you can do using the interface?

Also, I've posted on these forums a few times but never received any notifications when you reply, I only reply when I check the forum later, if ever. Not sure if this is an email issue or something with the component you're using on this, also not sure how to enable notifications on these posts.

Yes, we do plan to add support for EasyBlog and other extensions in the future.

As for the notifications, could you start a new ticket at https://stackideas.com/forums and we'll investigate this? It wouldn't make sense for us to talk about your e-mail address publicly :\

Very nice 8)
The new pricing is interesting

So it is no longer possible to access the source code ?
Even at an additional cost.

Yes at least for now due to the amount of support tickets raise relating to the entire build flow.

Love the new pricing model. Will be getting it to have a play with to see if it will work for us now.

Quick question, if we have custom work done on our Easysocial website (By your team) would these changes possibly appear in the app? Or is it dependent on what changes?

Thanks Michael. If they are done on the website, it would not appear on the app since the app uses native codes and not html codes.

If you already have an Easy Social social network up and running, does this app integrate with the website ? Is there a way to seed the app with users who already have account profiles on my Easy Social website? Is this app suitable for Google Play and iTunes stores?

Yes, this integrates with your EasySocial site. As a matter of fact, you need EasySocial to be installed on your site and existing users from your site could login through the app just as they would on the website.

Yes, with Titan, you can build for both Apple's App Store as well as Google Play Store.
