Hey everyone, 

 

The wait is finally over and we are LIVE with a beta test for some shiny new features.

 

giffgaff Studio

 

So what's new?

  • you can create GIFs.
  • jazz up your artwork with doodles and multiple backgrounds.
  • brand new templates for you to play with.

 

As mentioned, we're releasing these new features as a beta because we know there's still some more tweaks that we need to make, but we wanted to give you the opportunity to really get involved in the development of this tool and use the new gif feature and try out the new templates as well.

 

So over the next week, we'd like to use this opportunity for you to get involved and tell us your thoughts, particularly around the following, that will help us evolve the next stage. 

 

  • loading speeds,
  • intuitiveness - any areas you're finding difficult to understand or use,
  • what device and browser you're using,
  • how can studio help improve your experience in the community?

Thanks so much, we hope you enjoy some of the new features.

Amy & Team

If this can be taken two ways, and one offends you, I probably meant the other way Smiley Wink

Good morning! Thanks for trying out Studio last night.
@chand311 & @extreme_one would you be able to let me know how you went into Studio? Was it via the link in this thread, therefore taking you to studio.giffgaff.com or was it via a button on the community that you'll find in comments and within GD or here at the top of Contribute where you can also start a new message?

Both ways fail in the same way @amy_b_d.

 

Last night I clicked the link in your OP, just now I tried using the button in the post composer.

 

I just see the spinning circle when I try and upload an image.

Thanks for confirming @extreme_one Can I double check which Android device you're using? And if you're able to tell me when chrome last updated. You can also PM me this info if you don't want to share it publically. =)
