The New Redesigned DropShots Is Here

Friday, November 11th, 2016

New dropshotsHave you noticed that DropShots looks different? We’re really excited to announce our latest DropShots redesign where we made it more social and user-friendly. Let me give you a quick overview of the most important changes.

Responsive Design

Now DropShots is fully responsive. This means that you can access it from any desktop or mobile device and it will look good and feel comfortable to use.

More Sort Order Options

We’ve added an option for you to sort your photos and videos by taken date (for photos uploaded after 2012) or upload date. You can also sort photo from oldest to newest and vice versa. And you can edit the titles for your media a lot easier than before.

New Friends Page Layout and Options

We’ve done a lot of work on the Friends page and on DropShots’ social features. We’ve redesigned the Friends page, so that now it has an all-new layout (we hope you like it!) and we’ve added a new Friend Requests and Sent Request sidebar on the Friends page. We’ve also moved the timeline to a new location – now it’s on the right-hand side of every screen.

Improved Commenting

We’ve also improved how commenting works on DropShots. Profile comments now appear to the left of the screen on your Main Profile, Photos, Videos, and Favorites screens. You can now edit comments as well as delete the comments you don’t like.

In addition to all this, there are lots of under-the-hood improvements including new parallax cover photos and redesigned main and sub-nav bars that make DropShots more fun to use than ever before.

.MP4, .AVI, .MKV, .MOV, .FLV, .MPG, .WMV, .WEBM, .OGV, .M2V, .M4V, .3GP

Monday, October 14th, 2013

DropShots for iOSThe latest and greatest iOS 7 has been getting a lot of praise for its clean design and cool new options. Because of its new look, apps designed for the previous versions of iOS didn’t look too good on iOS 7.
