This Foundbite update for Windows Phone features a pretty big redesign, the addition of some new features and the return of some old one's in the form of the ability to take multiple photos. Here's a summary of what you can expect:
Photos Saved to Camera Roll
When you capture a photo in Foundbite this file will now be saved to your camera roll so you can share and save it elsewhere.
Multiple Image Foundbites
Probably the most requested feature after it was removed due to some problems with how I went about it before, this version allows you to capture multiple image foundbites again. Enjoy!
The main feed has now been redesigned with larger images, no text and smaller profile pictures to keep the focus on the pictures and, of course, sounds that have been uploaded.
New Viewing Page
The view page has also been redesigned with circular images, new controls and what I hope you'll agree is a much cleaner look.
Own Foundbite View, Editing and Upload
Before this point you could only really get the full experience of your own Foundbite after uploading. Now you can view them full screen, edit them to remove any photos you don't want any more and then upload.
Version 1.5 also adds a pro subscription plan called Pioneer. This gives subscribers access to extended features not available to other users. The current features include:
- Extended profile with the ability to add a bio and links to your social networks.
- Full high quality photos, the 2500 pixel image size limit is released.
- 45 second time limit on sound is increased to 5 minutes.
Even more features will be on the way soon for subscribers - this is only the start. Pioneer is priced at ~$2.99 per year although it's an unorthodox way to monetise an app I'm keen to keep building Foundbite without having to compromise the user experience with adverts. I'd be keen to hear what you think.
Foundbite 184.108.40.206 should be out within a few days, I look forward to hearing what you think!
