Announcing Steemify. A dedicated notification app.

in steemdev •  last year

You’ve got a new notification!

BOOM! and BOOM! and BOOM!

These words were actually being used by the late Steve Jobs whenever he had to present something to the public that in his opinion was a huge announcement. Well, we, as the Blockbrothers actually feel like we have a nice announcement to make ourselves! We’ve been very busy in the last few weeks to think of some nice things which might make being a Steemian even more fun. Something we like to use ourselves as well. So, while Steemfest2 is in full progress at the moment in Lisbon, what better time to let the world know what we have been working on!

Real life experience

Think of it like this, we all know creating a post can be time-consuming and fun at the same time. You put a lot of effort in researching your topic, finding or making the right images to use and so on. So whenever you hit the Submit post button the excitement really starts. Will people like what I posted, will they vote and or comment on my post, will they, will they. But most of the time you just find yourself reloading your blog page a dozen of times and switch back and forth to replies and blog. It is just too easy to miss out on something! Of course, you also want to reply to comments, because you value everyone who takes time to read and comment on your posts. So, to summarize, you don’t want to miss out on anything!

Steemify

BOOM! we made an app for that! We are proud to announce our dedicated notification app, which will remedy just that. It will notify you about any actions on your Steemit postings so you won’t miss out on anything important to you. We've been using the pre-pre-pre-alpha for a little time now we love it to bits !

First things first (closed) BETA testing

So what’s next you might think…well, we surely can’t wait to let all of you use and enjoy our app, but first we have to do some beta testing. We are currently in a phase which is called “closed beta testing”. This is done by a restricted group of users we selected ourselves by invitation.

We could still use some more testers, so if interested, let us know in the comments below. iOs only for now.

After this “closed beta testing” we then start the second phase of public beta testing our Steemify App. This will be announced when “closed beta testing” is over. With every phase, we heavily rely on your feedback to maximize the functionality and stability of our app. And therefore creating the best user experience we can provide.

We're looking forward to your reactions, comments and ideas.
Of which we will be notified by Steemify.

Kind regards:

This seems interesting, but is it really viable?
Imagine some big steemian like @exyle, one of your teammate, using this app. The amount of notifications would turn him crazy! Would it be possible to instead condense/stack the notifications into upvotes, replies, and transfers?

·

@sqamemal yes, actually, @exyle is using the app right now and providing us with valuable feedback. The system is designed in such a way that you can subscribe to notification topics. We are currently working on the front-end to configure this, but you will be able to set everything up the way you want. If, for example, @exyle only wants to get notifications of replies to his own posts, he can configure this in the app.

That's pretty convenient for the end-user, definitely looking forward to use this app in the future!

Wondering if you’re getting a notification 5 months later?

Well, I don't use steemify because there is no andorid version for me to use yet.
I use steemd.com/@sqamemal to see if I have any replies, comments, or transfers.

Looks useful

that is the must have features of steemit. I was waiting for it since a long.

·

Thanks man. Got the beta yet ? or are you on Android ?

·
·
·
·

Steemify actually IS on iOs. send a mail to steemify@blockbrothers.io to request a beta invite. Do eet. Do eet NOAW !

zoeken jullie nog beta testers?
Ik ben Belg maar woon in Zwitserland heb alles apple, phone, pad en imac
en ga volgende week op reis naar New Zeeland als je wil zien hoe het reageert op andere netwerken?

·

Ja hoor. Hoe meer hoe beter. Mail maar naar steemify@blockbrothers.io voor een invite.

Yeah the more betatester the merrier. Please mail to steemify@blockbrothers.io and request and invite.

A great project is in testing stage.

I want to use this app. If you are looking for some more testers then let me know....

·

I’ll contact you soon. Thanks for your interest!

Looking forward to seeing more about this as it develops...it would be nice if it were highly customizable as the sheer number of notifications generated by an active Steemian with a large following would be staggering. Whether you have considered this, or not, something along the lines of Facebook's ability to place friends into "groups" might be a useful feature.

Staying tuned!

·

Thanks for your feedback. You’ll be able to add specific users you want to receive notifications for, and also specify the exact type of notifications you’d want to receive for that user. I believe @exyle is a pretty good testcase to fine tune the settings we want to have in the final version.

Awesome! Great project!

Hey guys, this is awesome. I would be up for some beta testing on iOS. Let me know if you need me ;)

·

@cryptonik thanks for your interest. We’ll contact you when the next build is ready for testing. Expect somewhere within the next two weeks.

·
·

Cool! I'll be ready 8-)

my email: soni.prendi@gmail.com

thanks a lot

keep up the good work

This could really help staying in touch with your followers on the go and mean less time verifying home and replies section.

·

that's true, it is time for this app

Hi! Just found out this thanks to an @exyle ´s post. Amazing that you are making this app.
Can I use it with multiple accounts or just one? Can I be beta tester? Would love to and I have iOs :) Looking forward to any development. Cheers!

·

It can be used with multiple accounts in the final version, but for testing it’s single account only.
Please drop us an email at steemify@blockbrothers.io so we can send you a download link when we have approval from Apple.

·
·

Thanks a lot! Will send the mail now :)

Steemify great acchevement

This is a big and awesome development really love it...but my question is what of android users,windows user and those who use PC only? Reply ASAP PLS

·

We had to start somewhere. Please follow us for future developments on other platforms.

Omg !!!!! I was enjoying your post untill I saw IOS only for now 🙊. Please bring it to Android .and also I'm ready to be a beta tester when it comes down to Android .( In advance). I love this project 😘

·

We will, but we want to perfect this before deploying to other platforms. Please stay tuned for more.

·
·

Okay thank you , I have got my finger crossed

I want to use this apps

Very exciting. Happy so see the platform grow.

Will probably help to have the overview.

how to get it though ??

good post,, keep it up

hi, when the android version is going to be available?

God I need this for android!!!

Do you still need testers?

·

Not at the moment. The iOs version has already been released and is available in the app store.

·
·

Thank you @blockbrothers, I'm using it and it's amazing!

Is it possible to increase (or parameterize) the size of the text?
(I have vision problems, with the current size)
Thanks so much, love you!

@blockbrothers , I might have found a bug.. been one of your daily users since day 1 and i still salute you for this service! It's really been a great tool for small creators like me. However, if someone mentiones me in another post (not mine), I get a notification of the mention (nothing wrong with that). For every time he comments on this post (even without mentioning me or discussing with someone completely different), I get a notification AGAIN that he mentioned me.. happened with me at least 10 times over last night, so i thought it would be helpful to let you know :)

·

That’s definately not right. Do you have a link to that post so We can check what’s going on?

Thank you 🙏 This app is very cool. I am wondering why there is no Steemit app?

Thanks a lot! I got my mail :) Btw for any problems or sugestions, should I coment here or can I make a post about my experience?

·

Awesome! Please send us an email about specific issues, but feel free to post about your experiences. Great to have you onboard for this project!
