⚡️ Updates — February 2021
✅ 'Reflect with Holstee' Guides Added
We have added two new guides to the app. The Intention Guide helps you identify your top goals, and helps you break them down into actionable steps. Our Kinship Guide helps you reflect on the meaningful relationships in your life.
✅ New Notifications Interface
We updated the interface for selecting which days notifications are sent. The new interface makes it much more clear which days are selected and which are not. Shout out to user "Dave" for the great suggestion!
✅ Updated Illustrations
We are making updates throughout the app tightening up design elements. So far we have updated the guides illustrations and the new entry icon on mobile.
✅ Backend & Performance Updates
While it's the least visible, this was the biggest lift this past month. These updates change how Monthly Reviews are saved and stored and gives us more flexibility with future guides and syncing.
