This feature currently works fine on Android, so we added this to the desktop app too. And it is planned to be added to iOS version.


Web: Fullscreen mode

We want Steepshot to become more comfortable place for creative people and photographers. There are several steps that we have outlined for this. The fullscreen mode is also on this map. Now we are also working on the feature where you can download your images with much better quality.

So, here is how to switch to fullscreen mode:


And here is how it looks:


Please note that you can use your keyboard to show previous/next photo, to upvote post, and to return back from the fullcreen mode to normal.


Power delegation initiative

Since we started out initiative we attracted 20 delegates. Thank you all!

This weekend we'll make our first distribution to delegates, and we'll post this info soon! Stay tuned.

If you want to delegate Steem Power (SP) to @steepshot you can do that by clicking one of the following links: 100 SP, 1000 SP, 10000 SP or any other amount.

Message to whales

We started Steepshot in early 2017, made a lot of progress for 3 popular platforms, developed Ditch.NET, and have even more stuff to come. What do you think @ned, @misterdelegation, @freedom? Would delegating some Steem power to Steepshot make Steem better? We think users that follow our Guidelines will benefit much from power delegation. Would be nice to hear the voice from whales. We are opened for the dialogue. You can also contact us through our official channels, slack, or email.

Curation progress

There are more than 2000 posts every day on Steepshot. Our curators team has grown to 3 members. Things getting easier a bit.

We try to upvote as many posts as possible. The aim is to make rewards more distributed and fair. Last week we recovered voting power to 90% and above. And we keep upvoting more posts than before.

For more details about who receives more upvotes from @steepshot - see this post or visit our Discord.

This is awesome. Thank you for the continued support and updates to the app so far. I'm primarily an Andriod user and will try out the IOS version later today.

So far I'm excited to try out the power delegation initiative to help incentivize more users to ditch the non chronological Instagram & join the flourishing and creative SteepShot community.

thank you very much for all my explanations continue to work at @steepshot regards

Wow, from pictures I can see the steepshot app is amazing and ready for use, Am considering it.

No doubt, I'm ready to celebrate your success and hopefully be apart of the content that makes SteepShot so amazing.

I think the community is more supportive as far as helping others improve, most photogs, businesses and models here have blogs, and not having to click on several links to learn how they got their image or what they represent is amazing. You have nothing to lose check it out.

I'm lucky enough to be part of the first 40 users and so far I love it! It's even better than the Instagram app (it's not that great to be honest though). That slider view in particular is super useful.

I expected the app to be potentially unstable but I've been pleasantly surprised as it has been very stable so far.

Only minor gripe so far has been a bit of slowness to load the pictures but I'm not sure if it's due to the app itself.

@steepshot I'm curious as to why the reward value is not displayed within the app when it is in the web version?

Thank you for your honest feedback.
What about first iOS users, now 3 hours after this announcement there are already 53 testers!

What about the rewards that are not displayed, let's pass our first approval in App store. After that the plan is to wait for approval with the rewards displayed in the app.

No worries, I'll make sure to report any feedback I have directly to you as well. Is Telegram the best way to report it? Or via email? Or any other tool?

That makes sense! I'd rather have an iOS app without rewards than no app at all.

It's actually interesting to use the app without rewards being displayed. In a way, you can upvote/downvote/comment other people's photos without considering any strategy as to which has better chances to bring you some money back.

Maybe we don't need the rewards displayed??
I'm only new on Steem so I'll leave it to users that understand the dynamics on the platform to comment on but it's certainly an interesting thought.

Yes, Telegram is acceptable for reports, but you can choose your best suitable communication channel.

"Maybe we don't need the rewards displayed??"
Well, let's see how this experiment goes.

This is so awesome!
I'm happy to be part of this amazing project, I'm here from the beginning of the beta test on Android,and it's always better!
I'm waiting for all you guys in the Discord server, join it!

Yous guys are more than ever killing it now. 😁 thank you and congrats ❤

Wonderful! Steepshot is growing by the day. It's the easiest sell to bring people onboard Steem. Posting pics is something which everyone already does. This is stupidly easy for them. With iOS I am sure there will be lot more on boarding. Great job! 👏🏼

Nicee! I've been seeing quite a few people that I follow are starting to use Steepshot. It seems like it's getting more and more popular. Hopefully the iOS closed beta goes well and the app won't take very long to be released!

Congrats ! you are one of my favorite apps on Steem.
I just asked to be part of IOS Beta Tester, hopefully subscriptions are still open.
Take care !

WOW! Splendid work your team have done so far. As I was waiting for iOS version app because I'm iPhone user. That's really nice interface which is quite user-friendly and smoothly. I'm just going to download it on my phone.

Congrats that your Discord channel has now 330 members. You all are doing great work. Keep it up!

Congratulation to the best one team of steepshot who had hard worked to compeletly the needs of the users of iOS and congratulation for iOS users and I am waiting your best moments shared in Steepshot!! On.

Oh, i want to be part of this movement. I'll get it on my android. Was already trying out similar apps, but i know steepshot will be the real deal.
