JellyChip is not perfect that's for sure but we're making huge strides in completing our feature set and improving stability. Users found two pretty huge bugs overnight though which were 1) duplicating messages in Lifeline Chat and 2) user points sometimes going into the "negative" (displaying minus points).
We've now fixed both of these and issued emergency builds to the App Store and Google Play. New updates should be out within the next day.
We've also been working very hard today on two items - making group chat load faster and behave more stable. And build our Friend Code feature. The first speaks for itself quite clearly but requires a lot of serious coding. The second is something we're really excited to bring to JellyChip next week.
Users will be able to invite their friend with a 7 digit code that's unique to them. When their friend signs up, all they have to do is paste their friend's code in the signup screen. And all the user has to do is post that Friend Code all over the web. Whenever somebody uses that code to sign up to JellyChip this user is immediately rewarded with 200 points. Their friend is also rewarded with 200 points. Food for thought, a Malaria Tablet (preventing malaria in a person) is about 200 points so users could save two people from malaria just by inviting their friend to JellyChip.
Again, it's a timely exercise in coding this feature and especially testing it to ensure our code algorithm works properly, but we think it'll be worth encouraging our users to invite their friends onto the JellyChip train. The user and their friend will both benefit from Friend Codes.
Today we also added two new gifts to JellyChip - Feed a Child in Nepal and Train a Health Worker in the Philippines, both courtesy of World Vision. When the mighty Lord Lifeline blesses these gifts to us, I hope our users earn and love them as much as us. This is the start of an incredible year, and again I make clear that it's our pledge to bring as many new charity gifts to JellyChip as possible this year. We're working our butts off to that end.
