Press Release: Announcing n0tice 2.0Posted: October 16, 2012
n0tice has introduced a series of new developments and improvements to its service with the launch of n0tice 2.0 today, making it one of the most open community-based platforms available, focusing on supporting local communities and information sharing.
- The website (http://n0tice.com/) has been upgraded with a new streamlined design and functionality giving added emphasis to the community noticeboards and aiding exposure to local issues, as well as the mapping function which is now much more visible and integral to the user experience. Also included are new social sharing and personalisation features, which help build stronger ties between members of local communities.
- A new version of the iPhone app reflecting the changes to the website.
- A new Android app built by Tyrell Mobile which allows users to browse and map notices on the move and was commissioned following prototyping at a Hack Day in July 2012 organised by LeedsHack.
- New curation tools, available at FeedWax.com, for local publishers to feed tweets, Instagram photos, YouTube videos, news and other local data into their noticeboards.
- Changes to the development platform to allow web developers to post data into n0tice as well as take data out.
- Code from the n0tice platform is being published and shared with an open licence (http://n0tice.org/developers/).
In addition, n0tice is collaborating with global marketing and technology agency, LBi, to raise awareness of the many ways it can be used by civic-minded people and local activists to improve their neighbourhoods collectively. The first campaign in the series will address the changing high street (http://highstreet.n0tice.com/. Subsequent campaigns will address cycling safety and supporting independent local shops.
