Announcing our all new website, changes to support and feedback and UniShare on Android (alpha)

Announcing our all new website, changes to support and feedback and UniShare on Android (alpha)

Anyone who runs a company knows that there are quite some challenges to solve. One of them is to provide a web presence that is attractive to users and potential customers. On top, collecting feedback and provide support is another challenge.

Fresh paint for our website

We totally redesigned our website using a fresh and flat design and restructured the way you get access to information for our applications as we are moving more and more cross platform. Using a one stop menu that is available on all pages and uses a menu overlay similar to what mobile applications use, we are improving the navigation on our website.

Of course, all features are also available when you visit our site from you mobile device as we made it fully responsive. Take a look, and if you have feedback for us, just go to the support page where you can submit your feedback. The website is constantly evolving, so your feedback may help to improve it.

Changes to support and feedback

Support and feedback has always been important to us. Back in the days, UserVoice was the perfect partner for us, so we built our support and feedback mechanisms on their platform. Due to changes in the company strategy of UserVoice, they are heavily focusing on big enterprise customers, leaving out the small and medium businesses like we are. That’s why we sadly need to move things away from their platform. We already ported our knowledge base to our own website, and provide an easy to use feedback form on our support page.

But this is only the beginning. We haven’t decided about our final solution, because we want the solution to be easy and usable on all devices. For the moment, we keep things concentrated on our website, as it is responsive and works well on all platforms. We will also push out some updates to our apps where we remove the UserVoice part and replace it with a direct link our website (for the time being). No worries about the ideas you all submitted to our UserVoice, we are keeping them all in our To-Do-list.

UniShare made its way to Android

It took some time, but finally we are happy to announce that UniShare is now available on Android as an alpha build. An alpha build can be considered as a working prototype that may have some bugs, but works mostly. Because of this and because it does not have yet all features of the Windows 10 version, we are not making it generally available. If you want to help us to make the app better, feel free to download the app and use it (and also provide feedback).

Subscribe to our all new Telegram News Channel

Telegram is one of the top messaging platforms. As we also learned to love Telegram, we created a News Channel that makes it easy for you to follow all of our announcements. If you’re using Telegram, you are only one step away to never miss our announcements: Subscribe to MSiccDev News on Telegram. We are also considering a support channel on Telegram later this year.

A lot of things happening here right now, and we felt it was about the right time to keep you informed. If you have any feedback for us, we are always listening. In the meantime, have fun, everybody!

Saying ‘Goodbye 2016’ (and a small preview into 2017)

This year was again a turbulent one for us. We had a few ups and downs, but overall we enjoyed it. What happened this year at MSiccDev?

Bringing UniShare to the PC with the UWP version

Tutorial_07

This year, we finally did the next step and brought UniShare to the PC with launching our all new written UWP app. We had a great team of beta testers finding out a ton of bugs, helping to make UniShare a powerful and great app. Thanks to all of you again, without your help UniShare would not be as awesome as it is now. We kept improving UniShare and added some cool new features, including translations into more languages, a connection to our SimpleLeet Converter as well as a Translation feature into Klingon.

But we do not stop here. The current situation of Windows Mobile (formerly known as Windows Phone) is difficult. That’s why we had to move on and started development of UniShare for Android. Here is a sneak preview:

Releasing the official WindowsUnited.de app as public beta in the Google Play Store

Also this year, we published Windows United for Android, which is our first public Android application in the Google Play Store. WindowsUnited is a German Microsoft news page, and we are happy to develop their official apps for both Android and iOS. The Android application is a public beta, everyone can download it for free from the store. We target a final release in early 2017 and will also launch an iOS version in 2017.

We will continue to work on these two projects in 2017, and you will see also some new stuff from our side.

So, let’s say goodbye to 2016 and look ahead to 2017 by wishing you and your families a happy new year.

Simple Leet Universal, our first app built for Windows 10

promouniversalappWhile we are working on UniShare for Windows 10 and are close for another update on our  beta, we have also found the need of testing some of the new features that Microsoft provides with Windows 10. Simple Leet is the result of our test, and we liked it so much that we decided to publish it as one of our public apps.

Simple Leet Universal easily converts text into leet speak.  It supports five levels of conversion and allows you to copy the converted text to your clipboard for pasting in anywhere else or use the Windows share mechanism to spread the converted text.

What is really cool about this app is – other developers can easily call the converter mechanism from within their apps. We integrated a so called ApplicationService, that provides that functionality. All other developers need to do is to integrate this package in their app to provide this functionality in their app.

We’ll continue to improve this app as well over time, the next big feature will be to let you customize how each letter gets converted.

Get it on Windows 10
