On Wednesday the 21st of October we had the pleasure of visiting the IT students at Bath College. During the morning we conducted a user testing session where the students searched for bugs and we discussed the UI and how it could be improved.
The students came up with loads of suggestions which we are now working through with the development team. We are already starting to make the changes and would like to say a big thankyou to everyone involved for being such a great help. As you can see, they tested on various phones, tablets and PCs to ensure we tested a wide variety of platforms.
Our co-founder Emily Thompson also joined a Q&A session where she talked about starting out in the technology industry and answered some questions on securing a job and ways to improve your CV.
You will now get the little red iOS notifications on your iPhone and iPad home screen when there is something cool happening on Peepoc. This will make sure you always know what is going on within Peepoc and when there is something you need to take a look at.
These notifications will let you know when:
– You get a comment on your poll
– Someone replies to your comment
– Your poll hits a milestone number of votes
– Someone starts following you
Don’t forget you can always disable push notifications from within your iPhone settings. Or if you want to change your Peepoc notification preferences you can do so within Settings.
