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!
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.
