Starting at the beginning of this year we made plans to go full PWA. There is a Native App for Android on Google Play and it is not going anywhere. It can be found at the following: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.myvybz.app. However, the more lightweight/faster option would be to install our PWA. We have created a new link for easy access it will be https://app.myvybz.com. QR code now works, it will open in your default mobile browser, you will click install mobile app when it loads. It will auto detect and guide you based on the device you pull the link up on. You can also just open your mobile browser and go to app.myvybz.com. You can also save the app as a desktop app. You will see the Install on this computer-press here on the popup. Any questions please post them here and we would be glad to help.
A lot has changed over the past two months! Some changes have also led to some bugs that are to be expected. We are working to get them fixed.
PWA Mobile App (80% working state) https://app.myvybz.com
To find out more about what PWA's are and how they are better then a native app you can see more here https://devathon.com/blog/progressive-web-apps-pwa-vs-native-apps/?msclkid=f68260c0ad5211eca699784f590b1436.. Overall PWA is faster, more reliable, and takes less space. Do not want to add to your phone screen or tablet? you can always run the site in your mobile web browser which will give your the same experience, just not as fast as adding it to your home screen and running it as a PWA.
Content Filter (90% working state)
You can now set a rating on your content and under the user menu (top right) > Settings > Content Filter, you can choose what kind of content you want to see. We will be working on a verification system or paid membership system possibly for a one time payment of $5 or something along those lines as a way to verify. We have not decided yet. For now it is open to all. Please test and let us know if you find any bugs.
Profile short urls were offline due to SEO link changes. If you had one, you will have to re-create one, by editing your profile.
Some links here may have updated as well so be sure to check links you may have shared in the past.
There are some other great things coming we have not mentioned yet. Will update here soon.
Last month we got a lot of things done, but most importantly we got our app up on the Google Play store for Android devices. Want to check it out click the following link: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.myvybz.app.. We are still pondering over the Apple app and will let you know once we have come to a decision. We have a lot of features coming here in time and hopefully within the next couple of months that we have spoke about in previous updates. We will update this post as these months go on as we have more to share.
3/9/2022: Fixed cover option for background on Profiles and content areas: Groups, Events, Classes is now working. Please be sure to test out customizations and let us know if you notice any bugs/glitches
3/9/2022: Gigs are back! Gigs are back and working. For now we will keep the Exchange and Gigs and leave it up you the members to decide if it is to much. LEt us know if you run into bugs/glitches. As all things money related you will need to purchase a vendor membership to use these features as we do not take commissions.
What are Gigs? Think of Fiverr or Etsy. You sell your service and provide the final digital product, conversing back and forth with customer. They can mark when they are happy with the final product and access item at any time from there.
What is the Exchange? The Exchange is more for Ads and Physical items. You can make an Auction and even mark when item has been shipped. You could do services in the Exchange. but it may get a little confusing. That is why there is an Exchange and Gigs are there for exactly what they are, gigs.
More will come to these areas in time. We will keep you updated as more news comes.
It is another year and we have plenty more updates on the way. We first want to wish everyone a happy year! The current thing we are working on, before advertising, is fields in certain areas. We just completed events adding a link area for if you are doing an online event and a field in case your selling tickets to share the ticket seller links. As for implementing messenger into the events/groups, you can already use the site mail which can be used for conversations as well or just use the timeline feed. For this reason we are not going to implement messenger into content areas. We have more we are working on that we will reveal here through the month. So keep checking back:
Additional Fields: 100%
1/3/2021: Fields are all done. We can add more fields at any time. Let us know if there are more fields you would like to be available. This includes categories, especially if you choose other, let us know what you would like to see. More news to come.
1/5/2022: Gigs/Services will return soon. So stay tuned for that. We will update as we have more to share. Gigs are like what you see on Fiverr and for those who are wondering the difference, The Exchange is for more physical items. With the exchange you are able to share ads and if a vendor member you can sell items like on Facebook Marketplace and also auction those items. More will be added to its functionality over time.
1/10/2022: We are aware of the timeline photos on feed not popping up in the feed window. This will be fixed soon. Nothing will happen to the photos and they will be there, just not the popup when you click it. Albums are popping up fine from the timeline fine though, just not photos you share directly on to your feed. As always we will be diligently working in background.
1/16/2022: We are in the process of working on mobile app development. The Android App will be first. Apple will be in the works, but no guarantee if we will be doing it or atleast we may do it not on the Apple Store. It costs $100 a year and that would be an extra expense. As we grow, if we see an increase want for the Apple app, we will make it work.
1/23/2022: Mobile app is live on Google Play for Android devices! https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.myvybz.app.. We have decided to enable auto profile creation. We realize this may be confusing to some who are used to their profile auto creating on sign up. Originally because there are two profile types and we allow multiple profiles we allowed you to choose personal/organization and then you create your profile. Now it will auto create a personal profile and you can always go up to the top right account menu between the bell and the messenger icon and go to + Create New Profile, to create more profiles including an organization one if wanted. We will have tutorial videos back soon.
We want to actively test the pricing features on the site and looking for beta testers who will have the ability to be vendors 6 months for free. Vendor membership is exactly as it sounds, you will be able to set price on the following content areas: Groups, Events, Classes. Also you will be able to set prices/accept payments for FansOnly content,
post gigs(We are working on getting Gigs back working it should be back soon), and set price/auction ads on the exchange. Other then the pricing features all things are free to the community. Also we do not take commission so you can earn as much as you want, just paying your one price per month. We do offer special discounts for quarterly/yearly as well. Join site and reply in the comments below. Any comments that are not pertaining to this will be deleted. Also Vendor accounts are required to have real location information on their profile they will be using. (You may mark it private, but for legal reasons this will be required) Being you use your own payment methods on site that is your verification. however if we find that you are underage through word of mouth or report, we will reach out and request identification.
**Being we are about to just start advertising to grow the community we may extend this further to a year. We will updated if any extensions happen.**
