This release is a sunrise release, meaning this is one of those releases which will set into motion a spew of interesting features over the next few releases.
So far, you have been uploading videos, pdfs and podcasts. But once uploaded, it just plays like just any other video. That’s pretty crippling especially if you have a range of ideas to make your content even more interactive.
We have built the infrastructure for releasing many addons. The first such is a calorie tracker.
If you have added a video, you can add an addon to the video. You can mark how many calories would have been burnt at what minute.
Tap change video against the video you want to add the addon to & tap on add an Addon. Then select “Calorie Tracker”.
Add checkpoints. If you want to intimate the user tha 100 calories have been burnt at the 10th minute, add a check point with those numbers.
Then save the addon. This addon will now show up on the video when your users open your video.
The calorie tracker will also show up on the Profile where the users will be able to track the calories they have burnt in the entire month.
More addons are coming soon like Pop Quizes and Cheers & Boos. These are great ways to make your content more engaging and interactive. We are actively building new addons, if you want one, this is a good time to get in touch with your account manager.
The profile can now be accessed from the dropdown on the top right corner of the app. It now sports all the legal information and a way for the users to update the profile information.
Addons like Calorie Tracker will also plot a graph on the profile showing the progress of the users over time. Most addons come with a Profile Plot. Which means that the addon will not only have interactive element while consuming the content, but can also be used to get a higher level view of progress through a month.
We’re so excited with addons that we are establishing a dedicated team to build addons like the calorie tracker. Again, feel free to reach out to your account manager if you have any specific requests!
You can contact your account manager to generate coupons. Once the coupons are generated, your customers can use a coupon to buy the collection. This is especially useful if you want to give away or gift the collection to some users.
We have now introduced the oh-so-common feature of likes and comments to your videos and content items. Your users can have discussions and show their love for your content. It’s simple, it’s awesome.
What people love the most about us is how they’re able to improve their app so rapidly without having to indulge with a developer. The app will continue to get better and prettier every single release. It’s awesome.
