We made the following updates in February 2018:
Native iOS Beta is Here!!
- Our native app platform for iOS has officially launched in private beta. No SDK or code needs to be added to your app. You don’t need to upload your *.ipa file.
- Our native app platform works just like screen sharing on your computer. We record all interactions on the user's native device. You can test anything that a test participant has on their device.
- A public beta will be available to customers in March 2018.
- Contact Juan if you'd like to join the private beta: firstname.lastname@example.org
Bug Fixes 🐛
- We fixed a camera issue with the popular Samsung Galaxy S7 that was affecting front camera support.
Moderated Testing Platform
- We improved our notifications for moderators during a live session. If there are connectivity warnings on the test participants end, the moderator is now made aware. An example would be an internet slow down.
- We cleaned up the chat window during live moderated sessions. The chat window no longer overlaps with the webcam.
Unmoderated Testing Platform
- We've built a way to exit a desktop unmoderated test by adding a Stop Recording button to the Chrome extension.
- We've updated the incentive options for Your List Recruiting. It now has three options: Validately will handle payment, I will handle payment/incentive, and I will not pay an incentive.
- We updated the fee when Validately pays your incentive from 10% to a flat $5 per participant.
- Your List Recruiting is available on our Audience, Collaborate, and Enterprise plans.
- We had our bi-yearly all hands meeting in February and took time to hack!
- We are exploring features around Unmoderated user interviews, Slack integration, and capturing debrief sessions with your team all within Validately.
- Contact Juan to participate in user research sessions on any of these features: email@example.com
- We added two new members of our team. Join us in welcoming:
- Victoria Natoli - Experience Manager
- Mateusz Sanko - QA Manager
- Our team is growing and we couldn't be happier. We're looking for driven, self starters to join our rapidly growing tech startup that tripled in size last year. We're planning to grow just as much in 2018.
- We're hiring: two Account Executives (AE) and a Business Operations Associate.
