Carousel 1.5 Out Now!
Ready to surf Instagram videos with ease, right from your desktop? It couldn’t be simpler. We’ve also completely overhauled our translations in German, Japanese, Spanish and Russian, and added Chinese while we were at it.
What are you waiting for? Head on over to the App Store!
We made video support in Carousel as unobtrusive and simple to operate as possible. Enjoy!
If you really want to communicate something, even if it’s just an emotion or an attitude, let alone an idea, the least effective and least enjoyable way is directly. It only goes in about half an inch. But if you can get people to the point where they have to think a moment what it is you’re getting at, and then discover it … the thrill of discovery goes right through the heart.
Nobody tells this to people who are beginners, I wish someone told me. All of us who do creative work, we get into it because we have good taste. But there is this gap. For the first couple years you make stuff, it’s just not that good. It’s trying to be good, it has potential, but it’s not. But your taste, the thing that got you into the game, is still killer. And your taste is why your work disappoints you. A lot of people never get past this phase, they quit.
This year’s RVA Hackathon is a 12 hour event on June 22nd, 2013 for attendees to develop an idea they’ve been meaning to tackle. There are no restrictions on platform or language and there is no theme. At the end of the event we’ll have everyone present what they made and award the best stuff.
Sound like a decent way to spend a Saturday? Sign up now! We can only admit a limited number of people and slots will fill up fast.
This is gonna be fun, you guys. Hope to see everyone there!
Elixr 1.0.2 Now Available
The 1.0.2 version of the Elixr app is now available. Improvements since our 1.0 release include:
- Username autocomplete (as shown in video). Just start typing the ‘@’ character in any text field and we’ll figure out who you’re trying to mention.
- New activity notification. The account icon will pulse briefly when you have new followers, comments, or likes in your Activity Feed.
- Better Foursquare results when finding a venue during posting.
- Runs on the iPad in iPhone size.
- Bug fixes and optimizations. Because who doesn’t want a better app?
If you have Elixr installed, the App Store should offer you the upgrade automatically. Or, you can install it.
Gettin’ better every day. Also, did you know that long pressing on the comment button presents a quick editor?
