Some (a pretty long) time ago, we made a decision to prefer photos that are rotated the same as their related patterns are. We were even declining some which weren't submitted that way. In one of the last blog posts, I mentioned we added a possibility for admins to rotate your photos in the...
When we were thinking about implementing the 'Add a Variation' button to the site for the first time, a lot of questions came to our minds. One of the biggest being if some users won't abuse it for creating duplicate patterns. To explain, a variation is basically a pattern with...
We just wanted to let you all know about a huge achievement we've made this summer. From the beginning of the holidays, we're seeing a HUGE spike in user activity and traffic on the site, and we're really happy about it! 🙂 We already broke almost all records we previously had...

We were receiving a lot of incorrectly rotated photos in the admin section, and the percentage was only rising as the time passed, so Johny recently asked me to implement an option for him to rotate the images directly in the admin section before accepting them. That was actually a great idea, so...

For the last 2 weeks, we were tweaking the create section so it performs a bit faster 😎. We also found one minor issue which caused the edit pattern page to display wrong values when there were some errors in the form. The new update is now deployed and ready for you to try it out 😉.

Today we were updating some important packages on our server, so you may have noticed a very short downtime (~3min). This was just a regular maintenance which we had to perform so that our server is up to date with all the latest security patches 🙂. The system is now up and running, and...

For the last couple of weeks we were working on integrating social sites to BraceletBook, which means that we can now post to Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest directly from the website. Instagram will be added later, because the official support for adding posts is not yet publicly released. We...

It took us a while to implement, as the standards are pretty new, and some of them don't yet have the specifications completed, but now you're able to subscribe to web push notifications on your Mac, PC, and android devices 😍. Previously, this functionality was only available to our...

Not sure if you've noticed somewhere (maybe a long time ago), but we're working hard on finishing a completely new website with a LOT of new features, new design, and improvements, some of which are also from your requests 🙂 We'll also be releasing an updated iOS app with some...

Recently, we had some problems with e-mails on the site, but it's now resolved. It affected some sections of the site like the forgotten password for example.

Found out push notifications weren't working for some time, so I looked into it and it should be fixed for now 🙂

We've got some exciting news for you 🙂 I've been really busy @ work so couldn't manage to submit all the stuff on the site, but now we have a new admin who will take care of the site! We also are still working on the huge update you probably already know about 😉

A new version of our app is ready waiting for you @ the AppStore! 🙂
Adding information on which strings have similar or dark colors and tweaking color comparison (requested by users).
Thanks to quick response from Apple, you can now download the new version of our app 🙂
Version 2.2.3 reflecting server side changes about the generators is now submitted to the AppStore and waiting for Apple to be approved 🙂 You can now view both preview and pattern images, and also zoom in on all photos and images within the app 🙂
We're sorry for the outage we had today. Sadly our server provider made a terrible mistake due to which we had to wait until a backup has been restored 🙁
We've tweaked the homepage a bit to show the best patterns of the latest rather than just the latest 🙂
Another tweak in the generators! You can now see the string colors in normal preview empty knots 😉
Thank you again for sharing your ideas on the generators 🙂 We made them a bit better.
Thank you all for writing us about the issues in the new generators. We've fixed them all (for now) ! 🙂
We've just released the new generators we were working on for so long! Hope you'll test the hell out of them and let us know if you find some issues 🙂
To make it official, in a few weeks, maybe days, we're finishing up a complete remake of the main part of BraceletBook - the Generators. Using new technologies, we're now able to make pretty interesting stuff. We're also adding knot instructions to alpha patterns, with a dynamic...
It now looks like we'll be announcing even more updates than we initially thought. 😉 You will be able to create patterns that weren't possible before, so prepare!
We've made some tweaks to speed up the server and prevent outages as seen in the last weeks. Now, we're preparing for a pretty big step forward finally releasing what we were working on 😉
