For the longest midnight oil we burnt, for the effort we have put in to, and finally we are proud to announce English version of WhereIN, is finally here! Welcome to our WhereIN family.
It’s been more than half a year of struggle, we’ve been working on different challenges. That including our core business has been facing their own challenges, so happened during that time mainland China firewall has been enforced upon Steemit and Steem API, as a result, even logging into any platform would be difficult for users in China. That is one of the main focus that point of time, to ensure everybody be able to use Steem via WhereIN.
Here is a little bit of something behind the scene. We have been using Flutter for IOS and Android development. To our surprise, Flutter was never easy as we thought, it took us months to master the art of coding with Flutter, at the same time we have also developed SteemKillers, in order to put this game into our Steem eco-system, which originally supposed to bring in investors via the game, but due to current hurdle, this has not been doing too well as at now.
1.Following phone default language upon installation
In the beginning of 2019, there’s been demand of English version of WhereIN, and finally it is here. The current revision of WhereIN is able to recognize your mobile phone’s default language and installed with the default langauge for your convenience. If your phone is defaulted in Chinese language, upon complete installation, WhereIN is defaulted in Chinese.
We have included GPS location settings for your convenience to clock in your visited location if you wish to. For example, if you’re at a place having a wonderful dinner, and you would like to share the location to your friends, you can immediately make a post and tick on the Choose Location and your post will be automatically locked with a GPS location for the convenience of future reference.
2.Introduce QR code and scanner function
As we all know, QR code has been widely accepted in mainland China. Regardless where you go, SCAN and you will get the service. Be it riding a bike, scan. Make payment, scan. Make friends, scan. In this revision we have also included QR scanner and code generator for your ease of scanning and sharing among your friends.

4.Simple yet comprehensive wallet function
Previously, before our official release, we have already included many different kind of wallet convenient for our beta tester. Now, our skill and technology came to maturity, tiny little things like redeem rewards at the profile screen makes a lot of different in terms of usage convenience.
