Improvements and Enhancements in Anthology v2.1

Along with the additions that were mentioned above, our team has put together a number of improvements and fixes to Anthology in this version.

  • We’ve created a new thumbnail layout on iOS. Images are now larger in the feed orientation and we’ve created a cleaner thumbnail page view.
  • Addition of street names, States, Countries, and bodies of water on Explore
  • We removed the pin clustering feature on Web and iOS for a better Explore experience.
  • Fixed the Refresh button on the Explore page
  • The current location icon on the Explore map now follows your device’s location on iOS when you are venturing out to find a Point of Interest or a Hotspot nearby
  • Page memory has been enhanced on Explore. Previously, when a user would back out of a Point of Interest page, they would be brought back to their current location. With this latest update, we’ve maintained the position you were last looking at. For instance, if you are looking at Points of Interest in another area, you will now be brought back to that location when backing out of the POI page
  • Click on images in the Quick View card on a POI and be brought to that post immediately
