What's New in Version 3.1
We're in the midst of another series of expansions with the addition of Houston, Sacramento, and the San Francisco Bay area these past few weeks. Make sure you check out the newly redesigned takl.com to keep up with where we're headed next. You'll be the envy of all your friends. Before you do that though, feast your eyes on what's new in this version of Takl.
-As a provider, when you view an available job, the distance to that job is no longer "as the crow flies," it is now the approximate driving distance. Nothing against crows, we love crows here at Takl, but we thought this would be more helpful to our non-avian friends using the app.
-Fixed: When going through provider registration from within the Takl app, if you tapped on the button to view the online orientation class, nothing happened. That's annoying, and not the first time you've seen this bug. We have it squashed for good now.
-Fixed: As a customer, if you request a job from a favorite provider, s/he will now receive a push notification for it, which is great because we're still a ways off from that feature where you can mentally beam your requests right into someone's brain.
-Fixed: There was a small issue when you downloaded the app for the first time or just as a fresh install on your device and you were already a fully approved provider, toggling into provider mode wouldn't actually toggle you in to provider mode the first time.
-Fixed: When a customer used a promo code, we weren't showing the full price of the job including cents in the header area. We just weren't making cents.
-A small, but important performance improvement on how we handle geo-location.
Did you know there is no consistent distinction between "crows" and "ravens?" Yeah, same here. But, have you ever wondered why we don't say, "as the raven flies?" Insert thinking face emoji here. We're blaming Edgar Allen Poe for that one, as well as all general distrust of ravens over the years, but we'll leave you with that to ponder for now.
See you soon!
Been almost 2 months since launch and I've only seen 2 jobs come in as a provider. Not all it's hacked up to be, nobody uses the app!
