August is upon us! Here in the Dev Department, we've been spending our time coding while having the Olympics running in the background... and while the Olympians are surfing the waves πŸ€™πŸ½ we've been surfing our codebase to improve your experience on Buddyng App πŸ˜…

This week, we have a few updates for you:

β€’ Fixing the viewability of buddy's bucketlist on their profile

β€’ Ability to go onto a buddy profile when tapping on their profile picture

β€’ Styling improvements such as removing unnecessary gaps between photos and alignment of tags (because our designer has been nagging us... πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸŽ¨)

β€’ Bugfixes πŸ§‘πŸΌβ€πŸ’»

We've continued to work on styling ehancements since our last update, and we're so glad to hear that you guys have noticed the changes and given more feedback for visual improvements! If you catch anything that doesn't look quite right on the app, feel free to contact us.

Responding to the feedback so far, we've made more changes 😊

Updates include:

β€’ Fixing spacing issues when adding a profile picture (go on, upload a profile picture while you're at it!)

β€’ Ugrading placeholder profile pictures to HD letters (your initials as your profile picture may look better now, but we think it'd be dazzling if you upload a picture of yourself! πŸ˜‰)

β€’ Lots of bug fixes across the app

We've got a lot of visually exciting updates for you to look forward to on Buddyng app this month!

Our lead designer has been nagging us for months to update styling and interface inconsistencies on the app because 'it looks ugly!' πŸͺ± - we've finally complied after months spent building the app and fixing bugs... but the job never stops, right?

So now, we're onto making the app look prettier for you ✨

While you sunbathe on your beach holiday, be sure to post a picture of your view on Buddyng β˜€οΈπŸ– (and while you're at it, have a gander at the styling changes made!)

Updates include:

β€’ Fixing visually unappealing style issues (nothing that hindered the app, but our designer was going crazy over micro design inconsistencies! πŸ™ˆ)

β€’ Updating the search bar to align with branding

β€’ Adding placeholder text in empty spaces for better user feedback

β€’ Improving the app interface for easier accessbility
