User Inspired May Edition

We have decided to create the User Inspired posts once a month on our blog. If you do want to get featured on this blog or on our social media channels then tag us in your countdowns. Read on two find out what events we are talking about today.

First up is @_spikeyboy is going to a lot of events this year but we wanted to highlight the Emma Blackery gig in October. Emma Blackery started her main YouTube channel “Emma Blackery” back in May 2012 with the main purpose to post vlogs, comedy sketches and other content. Her main passion has always been music, and over the years has released a few EP’s such as Distance and Human Behaviour. Lately, she has changed up her music style and been delivering a lot more a fresh pop sound. She has previously toured with Busted on their Pigs Can Fly Tour back in 2016 as a special guest. Now she is back with a brand new music and has recently released Dirt and Agenda. She is set to be working on a brand new album as well. To coincide with the release of her new music she is heading back out on tour but on a solo tour in October. Tickets are still available so go grab them whilst you still can.

Second is @pianohowells who has gone to see Dan and Phil live on tour a few days ago on their Interactive Introverts tour. Dan Howell and Phil Lester are two friends who met through YouTube and forged a very successful career out of making YouTube videos. Both have separate channels and have a joint gaming channel, and they have over 10 million subscribers with both their personal channels put together. They have done a live stage show back in 2016 called The Amazing Tour Is Not On Fire and was also turned into a YouTube Red series. It was a wonderful mix of what happened at their shows and the BTS look at their life on the road. The stage show was a brilliant mix of the regular things that happened in their videos but on a larger scale in front of thousands of people on stage. Nothing has really been revealed yet about what the shows have been like, much like on their last tour we reckon they have asked the audience to not spoil it for others. It might just be bigger and better than the last live stage show from 2016. This tour will take them all across the world, so wherever you are reading this, they could be on a stage just near you. Tickets can be found on sale here.

So that is it for May, check back in next month to see what user events we are enjoying. If you want to take part in our user inspired posts all you must do is either tag us in your countdowns, or use #countdown or #countdownplus on your posts.

May Update

Over the last month, we have been working hard on getting new releases out both for Android and iOS. Please read on to find out what to expect very soon.

First up on the agenda is iOS one main issue we have seen from a lot of users is the multiple push notification the day of an event. (pictured below) We have fixed this issue for the next release due very soon. Many users over time have expressed their feelings about the image cropping screen. This has been revamped to fit with the similar style of how images are cropped within the camera roll. If you are an iPad user then you will be delighted to know that we have re-enabled image cropping on iPad. One last feature to point out is that on the lite version on iOS you can now choose dates further than 1000 days ahead and behind can now be added. Check out your updates tab on the App Store.

Android will be updated after iOS comes out. We have a few plans to update the app. There are like with most updates a few bugs that do need fixing. One bug which is to do with some lagging that has been occurring in the app. Some bug to do with the fact that images just don’t seem to be sticking. For us, those are the two main focuses for the next update.

If you are experiencing any issues or come across anything wrong in the app please message us on Facebook. Check back in this time next month for another update. Here is last months one.
