What a busy week it's been! We've been working really hard to make JellyChip a stable platform and add our final features to the app. By "final" we mean the features we consider essential before we fully introduce JellyChip to the world! This includes image upload in Chat, friend invite, a few push notifications, increasing the number of people in Group Chat, saving Snaps to the camera roll, increasing Gift Voting to 10 gifts and making JellyChip faster.
We had a few hiccups last week with our servers as we try to achieve both features and stability, and this will be something we will have to manage carefully over the next couple of weeks. Refactoring and adding features at the same time is not easy business.
The good news is that we added our 100th unique charity gift to JellyChip this week. This will complete the JellyChip gift range for a month or two. Whilst adding gifts nonstop is a great idea in theory (especially to keep things fresh), we should now focus our attention on select causes and channel our influence there. It does not make sense to spread our influence any thinner than it already is! 100 gifts across 8 categories across the world is perfect for the size of our current user base.
We also performed an extensive review of our Android app this past week and we need to fix a few things. Not major things but just a few small details that users always discover and notice. I notice them!
Anyway we are very proud to be building a social platform that is changing the world every day. As of writing this, JellyCitizens have bought 246 gifts this week. Incredible! Let's keep this momentum going and continue to make a dramatic impact on the world.
