Ejimofor Oruche Feb 21 Announcements

We are very excited to announce our latest version of the mobile app, Version 1.7! In Version 1.7 we are introducing a completely redesigned user interface for a even simpler user experience.

1.6_to_1.7_Change_Picture.png

You can see in the graphic above that we have departed from our current "Tab" navigation and introduced a new slide navigation menu. This menu is much faster and is always accessible no matter where you are in the application, making it much easier to navigate to different parts of the app.

You may be wondering, "How do I access the current app functionality and views I have now in Version 1.7?"  The next few sections will cover this in more detail. 

 

Accessing the Menu

 You can see the new menu a bit closer in the graphic above.  You can access the slide menu at any time using one of two methods:

1. The first way is by clicking the "Menu Button" (highlighted in the red box). Clicking this will show or hide the menu.

2. The second way is by sliding the main screen to the right to expose the the menu or sliding it back to the left to hide the menu.

 

Creating and Viewing Requests

 

Creating or Viewing a Request is still the same process you are used to in 1.7, however some of the terminology has changed. The table below covers the changes between versions.

  Current Version Version 1.7
Creating a New Report Select the 'Submit a Report' button on the Home Screen Select 'Submit a Report' button or Select 'Create a New Request' in the slide menu
Viewing Your Reports Select the 'Reports' tab in the tab menu Select 'My Requests' in the slide menu

Viewing Reports in your Municipality 

Select the 'My City' tab in the tab menu Select 'Nearby Requests' in the slide menu

 

Accessing News in the App

In the current version of the app you are able to show news content from either your RSS feed or your Twitter account feed under the "News" tab.  In Version 1.7 you will still be able to do that plus a whole lot more thanks to a new feature we have coming called "Modules".  Modules will be rolled out later after the 1.7 release and we will give you more information on that as the time approaches. In the meantime we will automatically migrate your current "News" content into your Version 1.7 app.

 

Accessing App Settings and Information

The content that was under the  "More" Tab in the current version has now been reorganized in the slide menu in Version 1.7.
