wevew 3.6.0 with manual connections

This version is dedicated to our new friend Rachel and all of the iPad 2 users out there — there are quite a lot of you — who can now use wevew!

 

In Settings > wevew, tap Proximity. Choose “Use Passcode instead of distance.”

 

Now, when you are near another wevewer, tap the Connections button (bottom right). Your screen will show you your passcode. Your friends screen will prompt for your passcode. Enter it there and you will connect. wevew remembers your friend so you won’t need the passcode again.

wevew version 3.3.3 released to the App Store

This version is dedicated to Nathalie who left us a message with no text. What happened? Is everything OK?

• In 3.3.3 we made lots of improvements to how we handle memory. Remember the last time you tried to share all of those photos from your trip and the app bombed out after 50 photos? And forget about sharing your panoramas. Sure they are fantastic, but inside your iPhone they are memory hungry monsters that just want more, more, more! Anyway, that is much better now.

• Made improvements to 3D touch support on the Sharing and Connections buttons (those buttons on the bottom of the screen). It’s still not perfect, but it's better. If you want to go back to the way things were, go to Settings > wevew and turn off 3D Touch.

• We lost and then found the Play button. On iOS 10 the background color wouldn’t show. The button was there, you just couldn’t see it. Through the power of technology, you can now see it.

• We also made a couple tweaks to the photo collection at the top of the screen. No one will notice. Sad face.

wevew version 3.3.2 released to the App Store

Here's another small update for September 2016

• On iOS 10, when you granted permission to access photos, location services, and camera, the buttons would not turn green.

• Better experience connecting to another iPhone or iPad the first time the app runs.

wevew version 3.3.1 released to the App Store

Here's a small update for September 2016

• Synchronized Views is now turned on for first time users

• Bug fixes

wevew version 3.3.0 released to the App Store

This version is dedicated to our new friend Patrick.

 

• Synchronized Views - With this new setting enabled, everyone in your network sees the same photo or video. Great for slides shows and presentations.

• 2 Concurrent Transfers - After added the ability to share lots of photos at once, we found the transfers taking a long time. Allowing two at a time keeps everything running smoothly.

• A couple other bug fixes.

wevew version 3.2.0 released to the App Store

• The experience where we ask you for permission on your iPhone is completely redone. Only new users will see this, but it makes getting into the app the first time much easier.

• Fixed a bug where iPad users with an accessory keyboard running iOS 8 would experience a crash. Sorry about that you two!

wevew version 3.0.2 released to the App Store

  • Did you know that videos under 10 seconds automatically repeat? wevew now has a feature to play and pause a video with a long tap. This is very handy when you have a short video playing over and over.

Oops...

Looks like there is a bug in the little status buttons that show you who is connected. When you touch one to get some info, the app crashes. We've submitted an update to the App Store and it should be available in about a week. For now, just don't touch those cute little buttons!

wevew 2.0.2 released to the App Store

On top of all those great improvements in v2.0, the app refused to show the outgoing image on “unshare”

 

Note that wevew v2 has enough new stuff in it that we no longer allow it to connect to wevew v1 devices. upgrade all of your devices to keep sharing.

new

wevew 2.0.1 released to the App Store

This is a big one. v2.0 brings a new and improved UI, new features, improvements to our mirroring algorithm, and some bug fixes.

 

• added photo paging to the UI because Kube through it was important that the app should work like everybody else’s. Thanks buddy—that was shockingly non-trivial.

 

• now that paging is out of the way we moved the buttons to the bottom of the screen right where your fingers usually hang out. they also arrange nicely and get out of your way in landscape.

 

• that alloc the shared photo ribbon to move to the top where they look great and show off the new and improved “friend views” which show where all of your friends are looking.

 

• the buttons now (mostly) have new functions when you press and hold them. hold a “friend” button and you un-friend them. you will need to re-connect with them (by being really close) the next time your “un-friend” uses the app. “unshare” becomes “unshare all.” “save” becomes “save all”. “connect/disconnect” becomes the uber unfriendly “unfriend all.” But don’t get too cozy with the buttons on the bottom. we have some cool plans for them in future releases. but as we all learned from Charles Babbage, we should really finish version 2 before dropping everything and moving on to version 3.

 

• the mirroring algorithm now handles mixed size devices and different orientations much better.

 

• there’s a bunch of bug fixes and a couple new ones too.

bye bye Spooky

on a sad note, our original logo/icon/mascot “Spooky” is gone—erased from history by a marketing department that pursues minimalism to unhealthy extremes. but weep not for Spooky. fear for Boxy and what may become of him.

imjoy 1.1.0 released

we've added full support for iOS version 7. if you are using the first version of imjoy, the main photo bar (the big one) turns black when rendering the high resolution image of your photo. upgrade in the App Store app.

 

the toolbar now has a filter button. touch it to switch between all, photos only, and videos only.  

 

we now also support partially downloaded iCloud photo streams. didn't know that you could view a partially downloaded photo stream, did you.  neither did we, until it made imjoy crash. when viewing an iCloud photo stream you might see a small white iCloud icon next to the photo number. this photo is partially downloaded and may not be as crisp and clear as the others. given some time (and a wifi network) and the album will completely download.

 

and for those of you who don't want to give the best photo app for iOS access to your photos, we have a fun new feature. to give (or deny) access to imjoy, go to iOS settings, privacy, photos and flip the button next to imjoy.
