Good morning everybody! It’s been a pretty exciting week here at SCVNGR. We just hit 500,000 users earlier this week (after only 20 weeks!) and we’re now about to release something awesome, completely new and improved apps for iPhone and Android!
Get excited. SCVNGR 3.5 is full of sweet new features and makes the ones you’re already familiar with easier to use, faster and better.
• Dashboard Layout! Brand new layout makes SCVNGR faster and more convenient than ever.
• Commenting and +1-ing! Now you can comment on your friends’ activity in real-time! Or you can +1 (“plus one”) their activity and give them an extra point for doing something awesome, say… checking-in at your favorite bar…for the third day in a row…at noon.
• Real-world rewards just for playing! 12,000+ locations offer rewards on SCVNGR. And now, you can find these places (and keep track of your rewards) more easily than ever.
• The Social Map! What if you could put your friends on a map? That’d be cool. And now you can. Easily meet up with your pals wherever they are, and then do the social check-in, of course!
• Activity Stream 2.0. We’ve completely retooled our activity stream to surface the most interesting content. Activity is grouped into visits, showing where your friends are and what they’re up to at those places. Check-ins, pictures, badges, challenges, rewards and more – it’s all right in the stream.
Full release here.
