Behind the scenes of Skinnyo, we let you organise or join challenges that make it a little easier to stay healthy.

Email Madness (Apologies)

Posted: June 29th, 2011 | Author: tom | Filed under: News, Technical | No Comments »

Our email system mistakenly sent out duplicate emails to many users this morning whilst sending out the weekly challenge updates. This was due to a small mistake when moving from one email provider to another earlier this week…

If we completely spammed your inbox we couldn’t apologise more! Needless to say there are now measures in place to make sure this sort of thing doesn’t happen again.


The Skinnyo Shuffle

Posted: June 26th, 2011 | Author: tom | Filed under: News | Tags: , , | No Comments »

After a little hiatus of day to day work on Skinnyo development is now back in full swing. We have had a bit of a redesign to try and better communicate our values… we want Skinnyo to be enjoyable, interesting and motivating but it felt as though the old design was a little dreary and – dare I say it – depressing!

The main change is that the side column has moved from left to right, this makes reading the timelines more natural and places secondary information in a sensible position on the page. As before, you can still easily update your weight from everywhere on Skinnyo with the tab at the top right of every page. We have also added the ‘me’ menu which replaces the old account menu and shows your picture so you know when you’re logged in.

We hope you agree that the new paint job is an improvement, let us know on twitter or by email what you think!
