App Update (Dec 2014): Faster loading, new search function, video, and more!

Our latest update went live on the Google Play store on December 16th, 2014 and on the App Store on December 29th. Besides the usual performance enhancement and bug fixes, we added some cool new features.

 

Performance enhancement: Melltoo is now a “lighter” app, taking up far less memory on your phone.

We took out some unnecessary stuff and the app now takes up a lot less space on your phone.

 

Performance enhancement: Loading of the browse page is much faster than before, don’t blink or you might miss it.

We heard the tapping fingers as you waited for images to load on the browse page. It was like fingernails on the chalkboard for us. So, we made image loading so much faster, don’t blink or you’ll miss it!

New Feature: You can now search for users by username and #hashtags from your activity feed

How can we be truly social if we cannot find our friends on Melltoo? From your activity feed, you will now see a search bar that allows you search by username or #hashtag. Many of you who have multiple items for sale have told us that you need a way to get found so that people you send to Melltoo can see your “catalog”. This feature lets other users search for you by username. In addition, while the #hashtag search still works from the main browse page, this new #hashtag search displays search results in a list view so that you can see more items that match your search in one screen.

 

New Feature: We’ve made your activity feed much easier with a “Mark all as read” button.

If you’re like us, you get quite a few notifications from buyers and sellers contacting you throughout the day. We’ve now made it easier for you to work through those notifications with a “Mark all as read” button in your activity feed. Tapping on the button will clear the highlights without deleting anything from your feed.

 

app-update-dec-2014-2New Feature: Posting an item for sale is simpler than ever – snap, crop, and post!

It used to take 60 seconds to post an item for sale, it now takes 30 seconds. Tap the sell/camera icon from any screen of the app and your camera opens to let you snap a pic, crop it, and post! We took photo-editing out of the equation to speed up the process.

 

New Feature: VIDEO!!! Post a 20-sec video of your item along with photos.

We love video. There’s no better way to show off your item than a short video. In addition to photos, you can now film a short video of your item to entice buyers.

If you haven’t already updated your app, what are you waiting for?!?!?
