We're excited to announce that today we have released version 1.5 of our iPad app. The most exciting feature in 1.5 is the addition of support for push notifications: you'll now be notified when someone comments, likes, or faves one of your photos. We'll also let you know when your photos reach Upcoming or Popular, and when they're added to Editor's Choice. Of course, you're able to choose not to receive these notifications in the app's Settings menu.
Also new in 1.5 is the ability to log into 500px with Twitter, a feature we added recently to our website. We've integrated our Friend Finder into the app so you can easily follow users from Facebook and Twitter.
First-time users will be shown a tour demonstrating key features of the app. Users who already use the app can find the same tour under the Settings menu.
Finally, this version addresses lots of issues that users have reported to us. We really appreciate all the feedback we get from our dedicated users and we take all the suggestions you send us very seriously. Specifically, we've added the ability to tap on a user in a comments list to see their profile. We've also significantly improved performance for users on the first generation iPad.
Get the app on the App Store.
