Steepshot: more than 20 updates (Web/Android). 3-weeks rally Report.
This year we started working on a new functionality, and in the near future we will present you the updates.
In parallel, the work was started in many directions: faster browsing, videos, image galleries, push notifications. (See the full list in the bottom of the post.)
We hope you'll love new features in this update too. And yes, stability is the king. The number of crashes in Steepshot app on Android decreased by 80-90%!
We present an updated logo. It looks smoother and friendlier.
You can always find the latest updates to our promotional materials for using in your posts in our Discord channel.
Ok, let's talk about what was done in January with regards to the Android app:
Steepshot Android app
New Tab Bar
Power of Like around the Avatar
If you go to the Google Play Store, you will see on the second slide, the words "Power of Like".
It works like mana in online games. Each time you press the heart button, you spend a part of your voting power. It is constantly rebelling (recharging). The value of each of your likes depends on the Power of Like and your amount of Steem Power combined.
Do not regret giving your Like Power to someone, but think who is more worthy of it!
Power of like on the profile page:
Click on the avatar to display the current amount of power in % of the max value:
List of Likes
The "List of Likes" screen displays the amount of money next to each user showing to you who your supporters are.
Timer on the button "Publish photo"
There's a blockchain level restriction of 5 minutes between posts. We've visualized that restriction in Steepshot UI. Now you will always know how much time remains until the moment when you can publish the next photo.
Delete, edit post options
Yes. It works. Now you can delete or correct text to your photo directly from the application.

Steepshot for the Web
It took us some time, but now we have finally improved the framework in the right way. The download speed has significantly increased. In the near future we will also make a number of improvements to ensure even faster loading of pages and maximum comfort of use.
Improved UI for mobile devices
Now it's even more convenient to use the web version on mobile devices.
Likes work correctly and the amount is updated quickly
Now the number of comments can be seen directly below the photo on the page you are viewing.
List of likes
Now shared links are displayed as a separate page
Now that you have shared the link, it will open in a special form.
For fans of the GIF-format images, it will be a pleasant surprise to know, then we also support it!
Now in the pop-up window you can see the previous and the next photo of the current page.
We took the 1st step to add future options for actions with photos. Soon there will be features to share photos in social networks, delete, edit. These features are already fully working in the mobile version!
HTML in comments
Viewing the comments has become more convenient with markup recognized as it is displayed on Steemit.
