Greetings Gemr users! We’re excited to bring you another new release of Gemr that further enhances usability and performance, plus we’re introducing a brand new marketplace feature we think you’ll love. We’ll also be covering new features we’ve gradually debuted since our last Product Update, so read on for all the latest details!
New Marketplace Features
Have you ever seen an item on Gemr that you really wish you could buy, even though it’s not listed as being “For Sale?” If so, you’re in luck, because the new “Make an Offer” feature allows you to do just that! This will enable you to quickly and easily express your interest in buying items from the community, and the Gemr user who receives your offer has the option to accept, decline, or counter your offer with their desired price.
Offers made using “Make an Offer” will be considered a serious intent to purchase. If a user accepts your offer, you will be expected to uphold your end of the deal.
Users also have the freedom to customize this feature within their own collections by either opting their entire collection in or out of “Make an Offer” or by omitting (or adding) specific items individually. Users will receive notifications when an offer is made on one of their items. These can be viewed by visiting the notifications page.
We’ve been working tirelessly to integrate our community and marketplace seamlessly, so we’ve edited our Nav bar to reflect this philosophy. By clicking the ‘Buy’ tab (pictured below), you can view a feed of items that are for sale in your clubs!
To make way for new features on the Nav bar, we’ve consolidated existing tabs as well! Features like our ‘Blog’ section can now be found by highlighting the ‘About’ option. We’ve also standardized tabs across all experiences on Gemr for a consistent user experience.
A Cleaner Layout
There are a lot of collectibles on Gemr, and we want to convey the most important information about every item as concisely as possible. As a result, we’ve changed the “Search Results” page to showcase the best results for each search inquiry, and we’ve reworked the “Item” and “Collection” screens to highlight the most important information about each item or collection.
The “Club Selection” has also seen significant refinements, allowing users to identify and join clubs that align with their collecting passions faster than ever.
Our engineers have been hard at work tweaking improvements and squashing bugs. Most notably, we’ve fixed glitches that occurred when viewing profiles with over 50 collections. Improvements like these are made thanks to user feedback, so we’d like to extend our thanks to everyone who pointed out this issue!
This latest release also comes with renewed optimization to item and collection feeds. We’ve also refactored code across the platform, which both enhances performance and makes it easier for us to tune the Gemr platform moving forward!
Gemr Mobile Apps
For those of you that use Gemr on the go, we’ve rolled out a couple key updates for you as well. We fixed an issue in the iOS app that triggered an application crash when an item was being edited or added, and the Android application has been updated for the latest version of Android, Android 7.0 Nougat. We’re committed to keeping our mobile apps as cutting edge as possible, so stay tuned for more mobile software updates in the future.
