New website launch

The eagle eyed among you may have noticed that we had gone a little quiet on here recently. There's a simple reason for that. For the last few weeks we have been hard at work developing a new website which we launched on Monday. The new site gives us the opportunity to concentrate on our new card linking app and, for the first time, allows us to sign up new businesses to the Swipii loyalty plan online. This is huge for us and we're all proud to offer this service which is strongly in line with our philosophy. Now we are making it easy and affordable for small businesses to compete with the big boys by offering a technologically advanced loyalty scheme that simply works.Swipii Changelog Graphics.png

Start exploring with a whole new section in the app

For the last two weeks we have been hard at work on the final page of Swipii's base navigation, the Explore page (adding location-based functionality for the first time)πŸ”­. This page will be your way to find new Swipii businesses near you as we add them in the coming months. It also allows us to move the Explore Nearby Businesses out of the Rewards page for a cleaner and more streamlined interface.

And in the spirit of cleaner and more streamlined... we have also added a new white colour scheme for our coupons. We think this helps to make the logos really pop and generally looks pretty great into the bargain😎!

Other improvements:

  • Added skeleton loading image to the Rewards page
  • Tweaked the navigation of opened Specific Business information tabs

Bug Fixes πŸ›:

  • Fixed a bug around the app sign in process

Explore your business-specific rewards in their own special part of the app

Ding ding! Round two. Having introduced the business specific Contact tab in our last major release, this week we are introducing the yin to its yang, the business specific Rewards tab. Now you can delve into your earned points and, more importantly, explore what you might like to spend them on.

As usual we have also been beavering away on the app's backend in order to give you a faster, better and more bug-free experience.

Improvements:

  • Password reset landing page improvements
  • DB migration improvements

Bug fixes πŸ›:

  • User email account verification fixes

Find out about Swipii merchants in-app

After a couple of quiet weeks we're back once again with a renegade feature (sorry, couldn't resist). This week we've been hard at work to create a page where you can find out about our lovely Swipii merchants. As well as a short description of their business, you can also see where they are, get directions to their door with the help of your native mapping application, give them a call or even check out their website.

Also present in this update are a few visual fixes to the history tab and a visual fix for our iPhone X users.

Improvements under the hood

We haven't posted here for a couple of weeks but rest assured we haven't been sitting on our hands over at Swipii HQ! We have been hard at work streamlining the app so that it will run faster, more efficiently and with fewer bugs. All of these improvements are aimed at getting us in the best possible position to launch some shiny new features in the next few weeks!

Improvements:

  • Introduction of dynamic merchant logos
  • Reduced the app size
  • Added confirmation before logging out of the app

Bug fixes πŸ›:

  • Improved storage reliability

Mobile: multi card linking and new "My available Rewards" design πŸ’³

You asked for it, we built it! You can now add multiple bank cards to collect your Swipii points. Oh yeah!

You will collect points with any of the multiple cards you have linked. These points will cumulate under your one Swipii account. Simple!

Remember: Points collected with MasterCard will show instantly in most cases, while VISA may take up to 72 hours. We are working to reduce this time for a better user experience.

  • Small reduction in the app size for faster download and performance

You can now be notified as soon as your points reach your account via push-notification!
