Into the App – vol 3

We keep pushing the skateboarding experience. We received tons of feedback to make the app cleaner, to have less features, so that you can enjoy content faster. We heard you and today we’re proud to introduce our new interface!

Everything’s only one click away. We look forward to enjoying all your content. Keep on pushin’ folks.

Oh… and if you’re wondering what sandwich and burrito mean, update your app and give it a try. We’re always happy to engage the Krak family, so please feel free to send us any feedback. Cheers guys.

Into the app – vol 2

Yo folks, you should have received a notification today. Something like this:

notification

Yep it’s kinda party time, BIG update has been released. There are some cool perks inside but let’s focus here on a major change: the uploading process!

1st step hasn’t changed: you got a sick content you wanna show it so you click on that little (magic!) sign ‘+’ at the bottom of the screen and then on the camera icon, you choose your filter and => you’re at that page:

app screen upload

 

Here is the news: now you’re able to upload right away a content without a spot attached to it.

Which means that if you click on the ‘upload’ button BANG your video / pic is instantaneously right up in the air with no spot. Why’s that?

While some people love the fact to map their city and create some spots we’ve to admit that skateboarding is way way wilder than that. For ex. look at those next 2 pics. First one by Aldeanda; second one by Felix.

Our question has been: does it make sense to attach a specific spot to them? It’s skateboarding related for sure which means it makes sense to have them in the app. But because it’s more artistic and/or general, you don’t necessarily want to attach a spot to them.

Our solution has been simple: let’s people choose. Now each time you wanna upload some content in the app, you have the choice: map it or not.

If you don’t care about the spot

It’s damn simple: you click on the ‘upload’ button and it’s up.

If you care about the spot

Click on the ‘map’ button and here you are:

2 ways now:
– if the spot is on the list (ie it already has been created by someone), you just need to click on it
– if not you have this little sentence at the end of the list (like in the following screenshot), click on it

Then you’ll get a pop up like the following one, it will send us a direct message and we’ll be able to create ourselves the spot. Give us as many details as possible to make the process easier. Then we promise to do it in the next few hours max (yep we don’t sleep a lot, we’ve a hell of a passion for this!).

If you care about the spot and YOU wanna create it yourself (yep we love surprises, so it’s possible)

In this case: krak in first! Which means that before uploading your content, when you click on the button ‘+’ at the bottom of the screen, click on the ‘pin’ icon (versus the camera one). You’ll get that page:

KRAK IN

And from there, if you click on the sentence at the end of the list, you’ll get that:

new spot

Here you’re able to create your spot as usual. And then you can upload your content and attach the spot you just created to it.

Well we’re dying to discuss w/ you if you have any feedback / questions so please, feel free to reach us. Instagram, twitter, mail whatever you want (mine is: k@skatekrak.com).

Cheers folks, and keep on pushin’
