I’m really excited to be finally writing this post. Over the past year alongside adding improvements to https://microvist.com I’ve also quietly working on a mobile app for the Microvist project.
Today both for iOS and Android the apps are available in early access. This means you won’t be able to find them on the App or Play Store directly but it is available if you have the early access links. So here they are.
If you’re on an iOS device you can get access via TestFlight by following this link https://testflight.apple.com/join/VxSB0G2q.
If you’re on Android follow this link to the Play Store https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.microvist.
Why The App Is Really Cool
The mobile app follows the same principals as the website. It’s a place to start eco challenges, invite friends into groups if you want, share your progress in those groups and unlock badges for completing challenges. The end goal being a fun way to pick up new planet friendly habits.
The mobile app adds some pretty cool (in my eyes anyway) extras.
First of all it’s much easier to simply launch the app than it is to open your browser, type the url and login before you can even get to the fun stuff.
Secondly you can enable notifications when interesting stuff happens. Like when a new challenge is about to start or someone liked a comment you left.
Thirdly leaving a comment and adding a picture from your phones camera, all within the app is soo much easier. I’ve been leaving updates with pictures of my #trashtag challenge and sharing on twitter for a few months now all via the mobile app.
Why This Early Access Phase Is Important
This is the part where I ask for your help. As with anything new there’s a few rough edges so I need all the feedback I can get. If you’re willing to try the early access builds please do and let me know what you think.
With your help I can fix any issues and refine any features before the app goes fully live to the wider masses.
Here’s those links again and a genuine huge thank you if you do get the time to take a look and leave some feedback.
