New iPad App, AUS Server and More
New iPad App For Design X
I’m elated to announce the availability of our new iPad app for Design X.
It’s called HelloWORK* Portfolio (By A Photo Folio). You can search for it in iTunes, on your iPad, or use this link:
Some highlights for those of you updated to Design X:
☞ Syncs your images, videos and now text pages onto an iPad
☞ Vimeo videos will playback if there’s a wifi or cellular connection
☞ Hidden content is synced so you can create a custom experience on the iPad
☞ New masonry thumbnails
☞ New sidebar/menu for easy navigation
A quick note for those of you interested in how we look at things: I had no plans to build another iPad app after our first one, because I figured by now there were plenty of options in the app store for portfolio apps. So, just to be sure I went and bought all the portfolio apps I could find. And to my surprise, I discovered that while there are plenty of options, none looked and worked the way I thought they should. So I built one that did.
New Australian Server
We have a new server in Australia. If you live on or around that lovely continent, lucky you… and you will see a significant speed increase moving to that server. You must be using Design X to move servers. Simply contact support to have your site moved over: support.aphotofolio.com
New Inquiry Button
We have a new button on the navbar called inquiry. It looks like a shopping cart and is intended to give your visitors the option to contact you or someone you designate (you decide where the inquiry goes) about purchasing or licensing an image or video. Think of it as bespoke sales.
