About Beta

So what's beta and what does it mean? Beta means that it is to test out the basic version of the app. App includes browsing the front page, blogs, following, unfollowing, liking, reblogging, creating new posts and chatting with notifications from new messages along other core features. It does miss features such as search, checking out your followers, who's following you (added in version 1.2), queue, sub-blogs, blog layout editing etc, we will be adding these in the upcoming versions.

The point is to stress test our network and the App itself so that we can see how everything holds up while offering the App for use as well.

Note about the creating text posts: Editor currently supports mainly bold text and adding new images from text edition features but not all the features of the text post editor are currently working (they of course will be in the future versions).

Please do let us know your thoughts about the app with any possible bugs, send us a support request via our support platform directly (please do not write to community forums, we want to get all the feedback immediately instead).

We will be continuously updating the App, this is simply the first stage to test out the basics like mentioned above. It DOES NOT present the ready product by any means.

Installation instructions

Since we cannot publish our app in App store (adult content is simply not allowed by Google and there is no chance to get such App into their Store), the installation is little bit different, yet extremely simple.

Step 1

Enable Unknown Sources:
We recommend to Google your phone model "How to enable Unknown Resources" as the process is quite different depending from the model
Make sure "Unknown sources" is enabled.

Step 2

download the APK file from the link above (this is basically the file where app will be installed from)
When the download is finished, simply tap on the downloaded file and select "Yes" or depending from the Android version "Install".
Wait for installation to finish and that's it. You can now open the app.

Instructions

Please do remember that this version is the very first Beta. Point is to test the functionality, we have not "prettified" it, meaning the looks have not been our first concern (we will naturally concentrate into them in the future versions as well)

There will be new versions coming and we're going to inform about them via notifications and with mentions in the web page announcements.

Important! App needs permissions for the notifications to work properly. If you do not wish to receive the notifications, disable them from the App's setting page instead of denying access to notificationsn from the app (the icon on the right of the bottom navigation bar).
While you surely feel pretty much familiar with the App's layout. There are few "hidden" features.

- To delete a post of yours in your blog or on the front page simply swipe that post left, you will get prompted about the deletion
- To delete a conversation, swipe that conversation left. you will be prompted about the deletion of that conversation

Update instructions


Simply install the new App. It will automatically replace the older version without logging you out

File is 100% virus free and contains NO malware
