    by Horacio Ochoa, on Apr 19, 2018 8:04:39 PM

    According to Ernest Hemingway, true nobility comes from being superior to your former self. That's what we at Bloomz are all about - self improvement.

    Today, we released a new update to our mobile and web app that includes a series of improvements that make our app more friendly, easy to navigate and gets you to the content and features you need faster. But it's not a minor release, we're talking over 20 improvements altogether!

    Some of the most noticeable changes you'll see right away are here:

    • Navigation changes for ease and discoverability


    • Easier access to Behavior and Student Portfolios from your main feed


    • Messages filtered to the context of the group


    • "Document added" post when an admin or teacher adds a document to the Media section of their group


    • The "New" label is being shown more prominently on the top to show the new posts and new comments on the feed.


    • "Edited" label is added to the posts which have been edited and surface to the top


    • New "Create" Menu Order
