So, as authors, we’re in a really bad position when speaking about iOS apps for Envato Marketplaces. Right now, almost all of them don’t work or are completely useless. Leaflet is no longer available and the push notifications don’t work for a long time now, iNvatoo pro doesn’t show actual earnings since Google start charging for currency conversion, GreenPaw doesn’t load data and is useless, push notifications for Tabvn are dead and that’s the only feature worth speaking about. So right now, my iPhone and iPad are full of crappy apps and the developers don’t respond. I have to say, they don’t really care about their clients… sorry guys, but that’s the sad truth.
So isn’t this a time for Envato to develop an official app that will REALLY work? For such a giant, this shouldn’t be a big problem and authors really need a reliable solution. I don’t mind spending $10 or more if the app would really work (forever, not for 2 months). What I’m asking for is:
1) Push notifications – this is a number one feature – nothing is better than instant sale notification (I recommend using this file for the notification sound: http://audiojungle.net/item/cash-register-/3310512)
2) A list of last sales (20-50)
3) Currency conversion – it’s great to see my actual earnings in my local currency.
I don’t really care about some in-depth statistics and stuff since there are some cool desktop applications that can handle that…what we really need is a reliable and functional app with immediate push notifications.
Authors, what do you think? And you Envato?...what do you think?
+1 million – Yes We need this! I am always on my phone
Android and IOS
+1 eAuthor is useless as well. Been driving me nuts this past week! An official App would be so cool and much needed indeed!
Am i the only one who thinks apps like this are totally useless? I don’t need Envato to create me an app. I need them to work on critical marketplace features.
yes the app is as good as finished. for a giant like envato, this is of course no problem. It is available right after the shopping cart is introduced.
definitely! we need a Official Envato App! i don’t need to be too complex, i just need an app than can view my current status like
“Items on Processing Status” “Statement” “View Port Folio” “Replying Comments”
right now, using the browser in the mobile phones are very hard to navigate in between tabs..
At the London Envato meetup this month I met Andrea Baroni, Bluegestalt: http://audiojungle.net/user/bluegestalt
He is the maker of my favorite App, Enveloper:
It’s rock solid and reliable and the main benefit: It can manage multiple accounts, which is very important for me, since I have exclusive and non-exclusive, as well as a FX / Logo account.
Maybe when we encourage him to do it, he would expand the capabilities of this app! As I was talking with him I felt, he probably thinks about implement new features!
If enough people ask for this, he probably would be more encouraged!
I need simpliest app that just notify me only about new sale with minimal delay after purchase, nothing more. And show name of purchased item on my lockscreen. All the rest, stats, comments etc. I can see at my browser. For Tabvn app I make new longgg sound, but he still not want to update, so you can use this sounds:
1. Only ka-ching – http://kontramax.com/wp-content/uploads/envato/tabvn/cha1.aif
2. With coins drops – http://kontramax.com/wp-content/uploads/envato/tabvn/cha2.aif
Upd: only one feature wanted – to choose own sounds for push.
