Firstly, thank you to all of our users for your feedback over the last few weeks and months. We’ve been working furiously to make Kickfolio as awesome as possible for you. Performance and reliability has been greatly improved, and we’ve added additional servers in London, Sydney and Hong Kong.
A few of the bigger updates:
Kickfolio is now entirely SSL. Besides offering improved security, this also significantly improves cross-browser compatibility and resolves issues with corporate firewalls. If you have had issues using Kickfolio before, we encourage you to give it a try again.
Custom Location & Language
When embedding apps, you can now specify a custom location and language. For example, you can append “language=ja”, and your app will start with a Japanese keyboard and localizations (if available). For location, appending this, “location=40.7484,73.9847″, will set the location to the Empire State Building. You must specify valid lat/long coordinates. A list of all valid parameters is available at http://docs.kickfolio.com.
We’ve launched a new website, http://docs.kickfolio.com, which contains documentation on our API, app parameters and other info.
MonoTouch? RubyMotion? Appcelerator Titanium?
No matter how you have built your apps, Kickfolio will work for you. We’ve added specific information for how to use Kickfolio with a range of services on our documentation page (http://docs.kickfolio.com).
We’re also extremely excited to have cisimple and AppLaunch integrate with Kickfolio. cisimple is a fantastic continuous integration service for iOS apps, and their integration lets you try your app directly inside the browser within seconds of the build finishing. AppLaunch is dedicated to getting your app launched and in front of the press, and what better way than with an engaging Kickfolio demo? We have a whole bunch more integrations happening, but if there is one you’d like to see, get in touch!
