Ever since the app store opened with zintin in the first 500 or so apps, we’ve been reading reviews, emails, our forums and comments strewn across the web. And man, did we get some good feedback! We learned a lot about all of you that use our app and what you wanted. With all that we synthesized a new set of features that we’ve put together in this new version of zintin.
Scribbling on people’s walls is lot of fun, but when it comes to writing long notes it can be a bit cumbersome (at least for those of us with fat fingers and terrible handwriting). Now there is a special “post notes” feature that lets you type out a note and post it on someone’s wall.
Before there was no way to use the app with a friend that was not nearby. Now you can turn on the “Display contacts” switch in “Settings” and see everyone in your contact list that uses zintin and share pictures and scribbles with them even when they are not around.
We noticed that people like to change their status messages a lot, but it was really annoying to always have to go into “Settings” to do so. We’ve now moved editing status messages on the main screen where you can edit it in place and keep everyone updated as fast as possible.
People also wanted more privacy control and content control. As we had mentioned in a previous post we have added the ability block users and report inappropriate content. Just press “Options” on the top of any wall and “Block Poster” and “Report Content” buttons will appear on every item on the wall.
One thing people told us often was that they had posted photos on other people’s wall by mistake and didn’t know how to remove them. Now you can Delete any item posted by you on any wall. It can be accessed the same way as Block and Report as described above.
Aside from that we fixed quite a few bugs. In particular you may notice that pictures load quite a bit faster now.
Once again we’d like to thank everyone in the zintin community for giving us the great feedback, and our forum users for the discussions that helped shape our decisions. Now go try zintin 1.2!
