Alright, some self promotion. Just in case you missed it… a new update to Gluon is out for iOS (version 2021.1). And if you’re wondering to see what it looks like in the wild… here you go, have a look at the Discover screen:

Gluon — iOS 2021.1 update now available.

They say you should ship software on a Monday, and here we are... I did! Now technically it's Tuesday as I write this. ANYWAY!

I'm super happy to announce the first update to hit your fruity phones for this year, and don't worry Android is coming soon too!

This release has mainly concentrated on the Discover screen, including some bugs. There are always bugs... always will be!

So here goes:

And that's it everyone. Super excited that I got this out for you. I hope you enjoy it and hope it doesn't mess things up for you haha.

As always, thanks so much to everyone that has been following along and gave me feedback. You're the best ✌️❤️

If you want to get your podcast or other interesting thing into the Discover Promoted Content section, let me know: [email protected].

You'll need to be active on Micro.blog and preferably not a big business (because they usually ruin the world... I mean just look at Appl... I mean the EMPIRE... I mean... damn... you know what I mean!).

Gluon 2021.1 for iOS was in review for… 3 minutes! The empire works fast!

It looks so pretty!

There are a few more things I want to get into Gluon this week before I send it off to the EMPIRE… I mean Apple App Review Team. Mainly a dedicated section for icons.

I’ll be renaming "Ad" to "Promoted" in Gluon. I think, after some feedback, that it’s not an ad as such and more promoted content for members of the community. I don’t want to take payments to "advertise" in Gluon — so I think this would be best.

I’ll add details on the Gluon website at a later stage where anyone can just get in touch. Of course I may just email you personally to see if you want to be part of it.

Thanks so very much for everyone trying out the TestFlight of Gluon and trying out the ads & promoted content. Really opened my eyes what I need to change and also add to Sublime Ads.

Stats look good — and I have no clue except "taps", so I can sleep at night!

One more tiny tweak to Gluon today is that if you have supported me in the past, you can disable ads on the timeline for as long as you want. I also give you the 5 day option. I believe the content is still relevant for the "Discover More" section though.

This is part 2 of the new challenge screen for Gluon. You can see I have added profile images of everyone that suggested the prompts. I did want to add usernames, but it felt too cluttered. Tapping on a profile picture takes you to their profile.

Conscious not to make too many UI tweaks to Gluon, however I have tweaked the Challenge screen somewhat. More I want to do here, but it will have to wait. Happy with what I did though.
