Kickfolio is now six months old and during that time we’ve had the pleasure of seeing how our users have used the product. Particularly exciting has been the diverse range of apps people have added, and discovering a few gems through Kickfolio.
Recently, we decided to make some changes to Kickfolio. As with any startup, we’ve learnt about what our users want and the product we want to provide. To that end, we’re extremely excited to announce the new Kickfolio. We’ve rebuilt and optimized our technology extensively to create the first service that lets you share test builds for your iOS apps inside any web browser.
With the new Kickfolio, we wanted to make testing apps a whole lot easier. The Kickfolio team has designed and developed a lot of iOS apps, and quickly distributing and getting feedback from test builds remains a challenge. With Kickfolio, developers will be able to simply upload their test builds and share a link with their testers and clients.
Without needing to install anything, the app can be used directly inside the browser and comments (with screenshots automatically attached) can be left for the developers. It streamlines the feedback loop, and allows developers to iterate faster and ship quicker.
We encourage you to visit http://kickfolio.com to find out more, and sign up for an invite.
But what about the current pages?
For the next few months, existing users will still be able to access and update their current pages. They are now available at http://pages.kickfolio.com, and we’ve set up redirections so existing links will still work fine. We do encourage you to update any external links to use http://pages.kickfolio.com, though. Upon activating the new Kickfolio app testing service, we will be closing down landing pages and current live app demos by the end of the year.
For our paying customers, we’ll stop billing from today and they’ll be able to continue on their current plan without having to pay.
We understand that this is a big change, so feel free to email us or leave comments if you have any questions or concerns.
We hope you’re as excited about the new Kickfolio as we are.
Ed, Chris and Diesel
