Looks like Christmas has come early for our app users – the latest upgrades to the n0tice mobile apps have just gone live (and we guarantee there’s not a lovelorn snowman anywhere in sight).
We’ve been listening to your feedback and have a host of new features for you to explore which we’re delighted to be able to get out to you before the party season descends.
So what’s there in the stores to download?
For all you android users, the very first exploring app we released last month is now fully functioning for posting direct to n0tice.com on the move.
The new version also features:
- upload photos from Camera or Gallery
- improved user interface throughout
- enhanced mapview
And for iPhone users, we’ve solved that annoying squished photo bug you’ve told us about as well as catching up with all you early adopters with support for iPhone 5.
- view other users’ profiles
- updated report view design
- #hastags & URL links in reports
- ability to follow noticeboards as well as postings
- account view upgraded
There’s links direct to both stores at www.n0tice.com/apps
A 24 hour marathon hack overnight in the splendor of Leeds City Museum has forged this – an android app for n0tice users which allows users to browse and map noticings on the move.
They explain what motivated them to work through a sleepless night to create this prototype in this short audioboo interview.
There’s more details and you can download the unofficial n0tice xplorer app on Google play here.
And they weren’t the only developers who took the challenge – Matt Longworth, John Harrison and Jonathan Powell created an app which uses SMS with n0tice to prompt the user a series of questions to reveal more about the news report being posted.
Overall winners of the day went to the Breeze mobile app which will text out events for under 18s. The team was largely made up of under 18s who only learned php on Monday.
There’s a selection of notes, pictures, links and more about the event on n0tice here.
