fuzel 2.0: animated collage

blog1b

First of all, we’d like to thank everyone for your immense support – the new Fuzel received almost 1 million download in less than a month, and was featured as “Best New Apps” on the App Store in over 40 countries!

Today, we’re excited to announce the 2.0 update for the Fuzel. Read on to learn more :

ANIMATED COLLAGE

For the first time ever, your photos are more than just static images. Fuzel 2.0 lets you put photos together, add your favorite music, and see them play out in a fun and stylish fashion, like this:

Animated collage lets you share your stories in a more complete way. You’ll see your photos in both collage form, and individually. This is particularly great for users with beautifully-taken photos, who don’t want to lose out the little details.

Unlike a normal slideshow that only display photos after photos, Fuzel’s animated collages know exactly which part of a photo you want to focus, based on that photo’s position in the collage. We even analyze the song you choose, and match the photo transition time to the beats for the best viewing experience.

So how do you make an animated collage? It’s super simple:

1. Make a photo collage like normal – consider playing around with different frames, stickers or labels.
2. Switch to “Animated Collage” mode.
3. Choose a song in your library, or use the embedded tracks.
4. Just press Play and enjoy!

Once done, you can share it with friends via social networks, or save onto your iPhone in HD quality.

DISCOVER + NEW SIDEBAR

The sidebar has been redesigned for better access to the brand new Discover section and the Fuzel Store. Discover is where you view and get inspired by beautiful collages made by us and other Fuzel users.

If you want to be featured in the Discover section and get viewed by millions of others, share your collages with #fuzel on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter. Everyday, we’ll look at all of them, and we’ll get in touch to feature your works. So share on!

NEW SHUFFLE MECHANISM

Layout Shuffle is one of the most loved new features in Fuzel – it lets you randomize layouts smartly for the most suitable ones for your photos. In this new update, you now have the option to choose between the Basic layouts, or the special Funky and Freeform ones for more fun-looking collages.

STORE: NEW LOGIN METHODS

Fuzel & Fuzel Pro 2.1.2 now available

Hi guys, it’s been a very exciting week: the two new iPhones are coming out at the end of this week, and iOS 7 is officially released today!

We are also very happy to announce that we have just released the latest version 2.1.2 for both Fuzel & Fuzel Pro. This update contains:

  • iOS7 compatibility fixes
  • Improved icon
  • Temporary removal of Sincerely postcard printing – Sincerely has yet to update their SDK to accommodate iOS 7, we’ll re-add Sincerely once they do.

There you have it, have fun creating collages on the new iOS 7 (and the new iPhones this weekend!). You can get the latest update by tapping on the icons below:

Fuzel 2.1.1 available now: postcard powered by Sincerely

We have just released version 2.1.1 for Fuzel today. Besides bug fixes, the biggest change comes from the postcard printing.

As you know, Fuzel postcard printing used to be powered by our partner MyPublisher. However, MyPublisher has recently been acquired by Shutterfly and amidst the acquisition process, some products and processes were affected. Fuzel postcard printing was one of them.

After careful discussion with MyPublisher, we have decided that Sincerely would be our postcard printing service for Fuzel from now on. Given Sincerely’s commitment on delivering quality postcard printing for mobile, we believe that you’ll enjoy using their service to send your friends postcards made from your own collages.

Postcards are priced reasonably at $1.99 for postcard shipping within the US and $2.99 for international.

Thank you for your understanding and support, have a great day everyone!

New servers migration completed

In the last few days, we have been migrating our servers to make sure that they can support the increasing Manga Rock 2 & Fuzel users. So far, it seems that the new servers are running fine, and perform very well under stress tests. That’s the good news.


The bad news: during the migration process, a technical issue cost some Fuzel users’ Twitter photos to be deleted.


To those that are affected, we are working very closely with our hosting service to try and restore those photos for you. Thank you for your understanding and support, and we sincerely apologize for the inconvenience caused.


Cheers,
The NAB Team
