It may be the shortest day of the year, but our developers have been busy and are releasing the fruits of their labor which includes a number of optimizations.
We’ve made things easier for our mobile web app users who access XING by going to touch.xing.com on their mobile device’s browser. Now users can access group posts and view new group posts either in their “Network News” stream of by tapping << followed by “My Groups” in the menu that appears. By the way, you can also “install” the mobile web app like you would with the native apps by adding a link to your home screen. And we’re still working hard to allow you to reply to group posts when out and about. Oh, and our latest Android app now also features the optimized profile, including an easy shortcut to phone people.
Last week we launched our polls feature within the scope of XING Beta Labs. We’ve now made two small improvements based on feedback we received from users. Firstly, the name of the person who created a poll is not only named, a link to their profile is also included so you can see who posted the poll originally and add a comment there if you prefer. Secondly, the total number of participants can now be seen by users who submit a vote.
And we don’t want to neglect all of the event organizers out there, so now we’re providing you with an editor so you can easily spruce up your event description text by adding headers and other forms of text emphasis.
On that note, we’d like to say thanks for reading this year and don’t worry – we’ve got plenty in store for you in 2012!
