Hello everybody! We hope that you have already mentioned some new features we have launched recently. Still we want to tell more about them. Lack the opportunity to post without Stickr plugin or Bookmarklet?
We know that there was no opportunity to add anything to your feed without using Stickr.com Plugin or Bookmarklet. Of course it was a matter of our concern and we were working on it and that's it: now there is a special form above the feed enables to express what's on your mind quickly and effectively. Let alone the ability to share pictures, video and audio files, quotations and links.
We were excited to launch this particular feature since this step turns Stickr.com into blog system including all the advanced functions it usually demands.
We thoroughly planned layout for the form to be at quick access without distracting the attention from the feed. Thus it was decided to place it above the feed itself :
To make it even more neat we get additional options hidden in a popup menu. But as soon as you place the cursor in the text form the icons appears at once!
Full range of objects to add: - quotations - images (upload it from you PC or point out global link or find it on Flickr) - links - video files (insert embed code or find it on YouTube or Vimeo at once) - music files from the PC
You will always know what is on top of discussion in the Stickr.com world. We have created a new block "Titles" that organizes most popular topics (by key words used by other users) all over the Stickr.com according to the frequency.
While top rated stickers are listed depending on average evaluation by other users, "Titles" list includes most popular "tags" used in stickers.
After login the block can be found in user's sidebar. We have considered it convenient to place this information on the main page as well. The most popular topics are available not only for 24 hours, but for 7 or 30 days also.
There is one more revolutionary feature available from this moment in Google Chrome: screen grabber.
First of all it is worth mentioning that we have updated the plugin itself and now it is attached not to the left side of each page so you need to close it, but pops up under plugin icon and hides when you leave the page you used it on. The main options of the sticker itself has been left the same: background color and font size, the size of the sticker can be chosen as well as the sticker can be dropped in any pace of the page, status may be public or private. As for the new feature we thought: why to limit you in your willing to post on anything you see? Thus the idea of this new option is to allow you to stick your comment not only to the pictures located on the pages of particular site but on any field of the window.
Now you choose!
Just click the new icon that allows adding screen shot, select the field you need and save it. If it is the whole window you want to add just click "Save full" and you have got it! We need to mention that we are about to launch new FireFox Plugin, that is promising in its features already! We hope that all the Firefox addicted users will not be disappointed!
