In our earlier blog - The EasySocial App. The Story so far and the road ahead, we have discussed about how we are now making a strategic shift towards focusing on giving a first class mobile experience to end users giving the first priority to those features that users are more likely to use on mobile.

As a first step towards this, we are doing a complete redesign of the User interface and experience of the EasySocial application.
 
The other key element in the next major release of the app will be adoption of the Unite Chassis which with it will bring easier customisations and a lot of performance improvements.

EasySocial App v5.3.1 release with language selection and EasySocial 2.0 support !

We are happy to announce the release of EasySocial App 5.3.1. The biggest of this release is that now the App works with EasySocial 2X. We have also added a feature to let users choose their language while logging in. In addition to these several bug fixes and minor ui/ux improvements have been made in this version.

 

Note that this app and API package only with with EasySocial 2x and won't work correctly with the 1x series. So please plan for doing an EasySocial 2x upgrade before you start with the app. Once you are ready, add a ticket to request an upgraded build on this package. Note that you need an active subscription to request updated builds. 

The ES App 5.3.1 needs the API package 1.8.7 package which is also now available for download.

The EasySocial App. The Story so far and the road ahead...

The EasySocial App. The Story so far and the road ahead...

Developing mobile apps comes with its own set of challenges. One of the key ones especially when developing apps with a CMS backend is managing the flexibility and in terms of features and configuration that CMS users come to get used to over the years.

Web services are the next key component of the App stack. These are super critical and developing these accurately keeping in mind the impact of all minute extension level configurations needs the team to have in depth knowledge of the extension in question. With a back end extension like EasySocial there are even more variables to this equation like User privacy and preferences.

Delivering updates to customers in the form of customized builds is the next challenge. While we provide source code on demand to subscribers of the core app code, most of our current customers are non developers and need support from us in compiling their builds every time we release a new update. To counter this we have achieved a decent level of automation which allows us to generate customer builds much faster now. However the goal for us on this is to develop an interface that allows customers to do basic customization and generate builds on their own.
