We were recently asked – “IF you could make one change to any app, what would it be”. We all use many apps on a daily basis, and there are tonnes of new features that we’d all like to see in many apps, however i believe we use Whatsapp the most. What feature do we think is missing from Whatsapp – “the ability to view external content directly within the app”. For example, we receive many links from friends and colleagues on a daily basis. The majority of these links tend to be videos on Facebook or YouTube, or a photo on Instagram (capturing Victoria Beckham peeing her pants). Wouldn’t it be great if we could view this content directly within Whatsapp, without the need to click a link that brings you to an external website. We found a chrome extension – Hovercards – that provides this feature on your desktop… hopefully Whatsapp will roll this feature out in the near future too.
We finished a new sports website for Loreto College, St. Stephen’s Green this week, and we’ve been busy working on a lot of updates for dueio.
