Good news, humans living in 2015. Today we change The Infatuation game with a big update to our iOS app, our first-ever Android app, and a responsive website that’s easy to read and navigate on smartphones. Here are some specifics on today’s releases:
- Completely rebuilt from the ground-up and optimized for speed. Everything about the app is faster, higher, stronger.
- The “Latest” screen now scrolls vertically and makes it easy to catch up on new reviews.
- We’ve introduced a feature called “Live Filters” that helps you keep track of how many reviews meet your filter criteria. It’s like search, but smarter.
- Our previously-award-winning app and until-today-very-outdated app has been refreshed to look like it belongs on your gold iPhone 6 /Plus. It’s pretty.
- It exists.
- It’s designed specifically for Android – none of that iOS-port nonsense.
- Unlike on iOS, the Search and Discover sections are united as one in our Android app. This makes it really easy to view proximity of restaurants to your location in search results.
- All of the other great features you love from our iOS app, like Nearby and Hit List.
- This website, that you’re on right now, except it’s easy to read on your nephew’s iPod Touch.
So what does this all really mean? It means no more double clicking on text on your mobile phone so you can actually read it. No more looking at blurry, scribbly, iOS 4-looking things in our app. No more waiting 15 minutes for the app to download the latest reviews. And no more neglecting Android. Even Stang has a Galaxy S5 now (and a sweet holster for it).
We hope you enjoy the update. We’re really proud of today’s releases. We’re an incredibly small team, most of us working remotely and on nights and weekends. Some of us are even being compensated in Coke Zeros. So we appreciate all of your support and feedback.
Speaking of feedback, we want some. If you have problems or simply want to shower us with praise, send us an email.
- The iOS App – Max Child and James Wilsterman of Volley Inc., who rebuilt the entire app from scratch in under 4 weeks.
- The Android App – James Nettesheim, aka Jimmy James, aka Stang’s friend from college who learned Android just to build this app for us. He’s talented and single and very swipeable. Inquire for details.
- Responsive Site – Chief Tech Boss Greg Spitzer got his hands dirty on this one in between this and his other full time job – looking after a dog named Rizo.
