After weeks of hard work, sideload.me‘s design has been updated to hopefully make it easier for users to navigate through. Over the past few weeks, we have been working hard to answer a lot of support tickets as well as getting a lot of our apps updated.
The update to the website also contains some improvements that have been listed below.
- Apps page redesigned – We thought that the apps page could use a redesign. The new design makes it easier to view app information and guide users through signing apps better than the old design.
- No more activation emails – In the past, we have received too many complaints from users about not being able to receive emails. The service we use to send out emails does not work for Yahoo! emails. To fix this, we completely removed the activation process from sign-ups so that users can immediately sign up and log in. Note: To prevent spam, we are limiting the number of accounts that can be made to seven per IP address.
- Google CAPTCHA Removed – Google’s CAPTCHA service can be quite annoying and can delay the time it takes to sign in so we removed that as well. After six failed login attempts, an IP address will be blocked for an hour to prevent anyone from attacking the register and login forms.
- PayPal Added – This has been the most requested feature that has been requested. As of last week, PayPal support was added so that users can use it to purchase a subscription.
- Referral Program – The new update introduces our referral system. For every three users that you refer who buy a plan, you are able to request one device to be activated under the Extended plan for FREE.
- Email provider switched – Since there were many problem with our previous provider, MailGun, we have now switched over to a new email provider for better reliability.
Along with those changes to the website, we have also released version 2.0 of the sideload.me. Here is what’s new:
- Updates tab – With this new feature, you can see if a new update is available for any apps you’ve downloaded from us. The next time you sign an application, the sideload.me app will remember it and list any updates for it in the Updates tab. Now you don’t have to worry about checking for updates elsewhere.
- Apps tab – The apps tab has been redesigned to match the rest of the app’s design. Additionally, iOS 11 users will be warned if they are trying to download an incompatible 32-bit app.
- iOS 11.3 Import Issue – iOS 11.3 broke an important part of our code that allowed for importing .ipa files for custom signing. This issue should be fixed in this release.
- Bug Fixes – A couple of bugs were fixed for iPhone X users.
That’s all for now. If you have any suggestions, please feel free to contact us to let us know.
