It's been only about a week since the start of this brand spanking new year and we have just released a new app on our app store. This was a feature funded by Jean-Marc Burri and he insisted on pushing this out as an app instead of adding it to the core.
The Team and I would like to express our gratitude in making things happen!
When we accepted this challenge, our primary goal was to challenge ourselves in creating an app with zero hacks done towards EasySocial and to demonstrate how extensible the apps in EasySocial can be if one really devote their time in building a super awesome app.
The strength of this app isn't just the app itself but the profile types that comes with EasySocial. You could give specific access control (limitations) to different profile types and your social network site could now reward users when they reach a certain points threshold that is defined by you. You can define as many thresholds and profile type linkage as you want.
When a user reaches the threshold, their profile type will be immediately upgraded to the profile that you specified. It also generates a notification for the user along with an activity stream item as a motivation to other users so that they would generate more activities on the site. Here are some screenshots of the app in action.
I will keep this post as short as possible to make way for some super exciting news soon! Do check our blog constantly as there are tons that we would like to share with you in the coming weeks including the upcoming PlayStation Network app, Conversekit, Echo Template, EasySocial 2.1 and EasyBlog 5.1 :)
