Rome wasn’t built in a day 🏛️
We are continuously coming closer to our public launch and the migration to the new APPICS blockchain with many new updates to share.
A few days ago, we released an Android app update for an enhanced user experience!
It includes continuous scrolling through posts on our discovery page as well as on a profile, automatically sorting the discovery page by “trending” posts, and other performance improvements and bug fixes.
Read more about what’s included in this update below, as well as how to update your APPICS app to the latest version and a sneak peek about what awaits you in the near future 🚀
🔸 The Android enhanced user experience update features continuous scrolling, meaning that from now on when you click on a post on the discovery page or someone’s profile, you can simply scroll down to see more posts! This way, it is easier and more intuitive to explore content as you don’t have to go back each time you want to see the next post.
🔸 When you click on the discovery page, you might notice that all posts are now automatically sorted by “trending”.
You can simply switch to “hot” and “new” by clicking on it right above the category bubbles.
“Trending” sorts posts from the last 7 days by highest $ reward.
“Hot” sorts posts from the last 24 hours by highest engagement.
“New” sorts posts chronologically.
⚠️ THIS ALSO MEANS THAT IF YOU HAVE JUST UPLOADED A NEW POST, YOU HAVE TO CLICK ON THE “NEW” TAB AT THE TOP TO FIND YOUR LATEST POST ON THE DISCOVERY PAGE!
❓ HOW TO UPDATE THE LATEST ANDROID VERSION OF THE APPICS APP?💭
To update your APPICS Android app, please visit the Google Playstore, type in “APPICS” and click on the “update” button next to the app icon to install the latest version. 📱

I can’t wait until the migration to the new EOSIO Blockchain is complete and all blockchain features will function more than 4x faster than on the current Steem network. ⚡
We are happy that we’ve found a technology partner in Telos who supported us with the new blockchain solution, so thanks again to the whole Telos team for your efforts! 💪
Yet, this doesn’t mean that we will not implement cross-posting to other platforms in the future as well.
We have customized the reward mechanism and tweaked a few things, for example that people will be able to upvote posts who are up to 30 days old. This way you are less likely to miss someone’s post and it also gives people a longer time frame to earn on their content!
After upvoting, and even after 30 days, users will be able to donate directly to a content creator as well.
Do you know that moment when you upvote someone but it takes minutes for the rewards to show up? 🙇
This is also going to change! 🤯
With the new EOSIO blockchain, rewards from your vote will show up almost instantly after upvoting someone’s post.
And since we have our own blockchain now, we are even able to have other applications built on top of it. The APPICS ecosystem will grow and every developer can create their own dApp on our network - this is only the beginning! 🚀
