SlopeTalk Tweaks

By -

There have been a lot of small but helpful improvements in SlopeTalk recently.

  • SlopeTV which gives us the ability to have live “watch parties” together (watching The State of the Union last night was a kick)
  • Page Up/Page Down now works on the keyboard, so you can blast through comments
  • We’ve made it work and look better for iPad users
  • Users can now copy text from any comment for pasting elsewhere
  • You can now control the volume of sounds in Preferences
  • We’ve made notifications better, because it used to be that you and the sender of a message had to both be online; now it doesn’t matter anymore.

SlopeTalk has already exceeded my vision for it, and we’re going to be winding down development in a day or two and turning our attention to other matters. I hope it continues to be an increasingly popular part of the Slope of Hope!
