Firstly I want to say thank you for your feedbacks, especially for our awesome beta testers. Also thanks to everyone who share ideas and requests with us, we highly appreciate this gesture! Few weeks ago the free version of the Smart Slider 2 hit 10k downloads. It isn’t spectacular, obviously, but it’s a good result to reach in less than 22 days, in addition we hit a massive milestone with 1000 likes on our Facebook page. Hurray!
We’re working to make Smart Slider 2 better day by day and today finally we reached the first milestone. In this post I would like to share our ideas and the latest features as well as open a public place for the community to discuss the future of the slider. Let’s see the latest and greatest features:
Design and Redesign
With the latest version we’ve added a totally new management system for the sliders, the popup menu. I’m sure that we’re going to add a lot of new features in the future so we had to figure out a new way for the navigation. In the next weeks we would like to test it and hear your feedbacks from this navigation type.
Import and Export
In the last weeks we’ve received a ton of email about our demo sliders. (How can I create this slider? How should I set my slider? etc.) Also plenty of user want to migrate the slider from a test site to a live site. For this wishes we have to answer with a simple and versatile solution: let me introduce the .smart files. From now the import and export feature is available with almost all of our demo slider. Awesome. Isn’t it? Even more we would like to share your sliders too. So if you have a great slider don’t hesitate and send it to us!
