Expert Apps Weekly Clinic Summary 21st October 2020

Doubling Up Image Sizes, Success Pop-Ups and Printing Time

Thanks to everyone who made it along to the clinic today, it’s always great to have people involved. If you didn’t make it there’s a link to the Zoom replay at the bottom of the email!

Mute button pressed; record button pressed…let’s crack on

The Apps Have Eyes:

With the release of the latest iPhone now is a great time to make sure that your app appearance is optimised as much as possible to take advantage of the increasingly bright and clear retina technology that is making its way into more mainstream devices.

To do this make sure you optimise your tiles by doubling up the size of your images.

So, if you have a 400×300 image increase it to 800×600, or a 300×200 double the size up to 600×400.

Hopefully everyone can figure out how to do that but I’m sure Liam will be adding a quick video into the E-Lab at some point. His A to Z video library increase by the day!!

The new technology does mean it gives you even greater opportunity to present a world beating impression to your users and potential users.

We’re all about preparing for new technology an making your apps look as amazing and professional as we possibly can.

If you’d like to take advantage of our design package (Liam went through all the details in the clinic) then just get in touch and we can put you in touch with our world class design team!

iWatch this Space:

All our apps are also compatible with the latest Apple iWatch so your customers and clients can get notifications on the go! It’s important to always direct your app and the capabilities of our technology to prospective clients and an increasingly techno savvy potential audience.

People are adopting and adapting to technology a lot quicker these days, but don’t worry we’re always up to speed with all the technical updates and ‘round the corner’ technology so you can be sure we’ll be building these things into our updates.

Our behind the curtain work is always going on but we only ever release stuff when it’s ready and when we know it’s the perfect time to do so. It’s what the wizard wants!

Printing Time:

Our automated sequences are at the heart of a lot of the great things that our clients do with their apps.

If you’re not sure how they work check out the replay for a quick overview or there’s plenty of resources in the E-Lab to help you out too.

As the sequences feature evolves, we’ve now added a “Success pop-up” feature. This allows you to effectively end a sequence with a message of congratulations or recognition of an achievement.

This STOP in the sequence means that your users won’t continue to receive irrelevant notifications and also allows you to direct a user to a new sequence as well.

The results of this is that users won’t feel the need to “turn off notifications” due to unnecessary messaging and will keep a vital communication tool of your app and business up and running

Awaken the App Within:

We’ve talked a lot about Appstermind in the last few months and how we can make the next one as good as it can be in the current circumstances.

In pursuit of helping with this Darren will be virtually attending a Tony Robbins event over the next few days. I’m sure he’ll share his findings with us – it should be really exciting to find out all about it next week and how Tony manages to keep people engaged for 12 hours straight!

The Future of the Clinic:

We’d love to hear any feedback you have about the clinic, whether you attend live or watch the replay – or even just read this fantastic write up (ahem!).
