For the past few months, we improved a lot behind the curtains. Now it's time again to deliver some new features.
Nobody told us that playing sounds on an IPhone was broken for months 😢 We have fixed it after we figured it out. Please do not hesitate to contact us if something breaks and does not get fixed in time. ⚙
Imagine you find a nice sound on Meowpad, but the title and tags are not telling which song it is... 😒
How do you figure it out?
Holding your phone with Shazam against the speakers belongs now to the past. 🎉
Meowpad is about sharing fun, and now it is even easier, with share buttons!
The number of Meowpad users is growing, and with it, the maintenance work. Nevertheless we want to introduce a new feature!
Meowpad is switching the servers. There may be some downtimes, sorry. But we have also good news:
New uploads will be moderated from now on. You will be notified when your sound was removed and informed why.
You may have seen some Ads? These will help to maintain the site and motivate us to make it better. Please be kind and deactivate your Ad-Blocker on Meowpad.
Do you know A/B testing? This is a method to evaluate which version of a feature is more likely to be used. I will collect the data for a week and then decide which one works better.
Meowpad evolves and I like to try out new things. No idea if "similar sounds" feature or the "new search" are useful to everyone. Feedback is always welcome!
SEO (search engine optimization) needs an overhaul. Maybe some changes will come with it, but there are no concrete plans.
This update is dedicated to the upload page and performance.
Let's see what YOU want. I'm gonna wait for some feedback to develop the most wanted features first.
Already deaf by screamer sounds? While working on some technical improvements and testing it, I found some very annoying loud sounds. The waveform graphic did not look suspicious, so how to identify it before playing? Meowpad takes care of your hearing from now on!*
More changes to upload page. The validation is still bad and UX could need some love.* But I cannot guarantee that all loud sounds are identified correctly.
More improvements in context with user accounts.
Technical improvements and a redesigning the upload page. Soundlists need to be implemented into the search and frontpage.
Big changes are coming. User accounts are available now!
This is a substantial change, because some current and future functions can only be used when you are logged in.
With user authentication, we are at the point, where we can start implementing soundlists.
After almost 3 years, I've finally found the time to finish some features. Sorry it took so long.
Meowpad serves over 8000 sounds and has thousands of views each day. I have never expected such a growth. But I will do my best to keep this platform running.
We want to integrate soundlists, which can be used to organize sounds. Therefore the option to create and manage user accounts is required.
