Opening the UniShare Beta for Windows 10 to more users

UniShare_new_blue

Today, we are opening the UniShare Windows 10 beta to more users. UniShare is now a true universal app, that runs on both your PC/tablet and your phone. On Top, UniShare already supports Continuum!

Here is what you get with UniShare on Windows 10:

  • share your social updates to up to 10 networks
  • new networks: Slack and Reddit
  • images can now be shared across all networks, thanks to the use of Imgur
  • the url shortener of our choice is Bitly – and you can now use your own account to shorten links (we use your standard settings)
  • mention your friends is now also availabe for Facebook and the newly added Slack teams support mentioning as well

What’s missing:

  • Due to the fact that we are no longer able to detect the song you’re playing, the music share feature is currently not available. We are evaluationg ways to replace this function
  • the image editor – due to the new platform of Windows 10, we need to completely rewrite the image editor
  • Cortana integreation (we’ll bring it back, promised!)
  • on Windows 10 mobile, UniShare currently only supports portrait orientation

If you want to help and improve the next evolution of UniShare, you are only a step away. Just hit this link http://bit.ly/unishare10beta and register for our beta.

We are using Slack for all questions and feedback on the beta. That’s why you will receive two emails after registration – one with the link to the beta, and the invitation to our Slack team.

Please note that we limit the number of new registrations (once the limit is reached we will take down the registration page). All beta testers that provide valuable feedback will be rewarded once the application becomes generally available.

We’re looking forward to chat with our new testers on Slack.

Lots of app ideas leading to start of MSiccDev BETALABS

We have a lot of app ideas. Some of them never got realized due to our own wish to provide high quality apps and little time, but we thought that we need to find a way to get those apps out, anyways. That’s why we started MSiccDev BETALABS today.

What does that mean for our apps? We are still providing our high quality for all of our main apps. With the BETALABS app, we’ll accept that they will have (as less as possible) small quirks, but get them out to you, our users to be used. What you can do: provide feedback (via mail) about things you recognize, about ideas to improve. Please use our UserVoice forum for those ideas.

Apps that run under the BETALAPS flag will be published to the Store as normal apps, but have the word BETA in the app name. No registration is required, and we wholeheartly invite you to use and test those apps.

Our first app that is released under the BETALABS flag is RandR. RandR stands for “Recognize and Read (aloud)” and lets you extract text from images and even reads it aloud to you. RandR is a Universal app and available on both Windows Phone and Windows.

Please come back to our dedicated BETALABS page in future to see all of our BETALABS apps.
