Release notes for Echo Experience Studio v2.2.6

It’s been almost a week since we announced the Echo Experience Studio.

Thanks for all your amazing feedback and feature requests for the Echo Experience Studio. The response has been amazing!

Of course, we will continue to improve the Studio as fast as possible based on customer feedback. To that end… a new release has been shipped overnight. Improvements include…

  • We have optimized the Preview refresh after edits. Editing a Project with many apps caused performance problems due to the fact that the whole preview was refreshed (along with installed apps) after every single modification to settings. We’ve improved the update logic and made it more granular. Now only the affected app is refreshed in a Preview when its settings are altered.
  • We have fixed a drag-and-drop glitch which made it difficult for Apps that were each 50% wide to be placed next to each other in the project.
  • We have changed the animation shown when loading the project preview or a hosted page. There is now one less “Loading…” message in the process.
  • We have added a saving indicator which appears after any changes to a project. It helps users understand when their changes are being saved in real-time
  • Various other bug fixes and performance improvements.

Keep the feedback coming!


Announcing the Echo Experience Studio

At Echo, we’re pioneers of delivering rich, social widgets for your website.

Along the way we were also first to deliver lots of important innovations in the field like social login and sharing, real-time updates and flexible APIs…

But in the last year, we’ve asked ourselves new questions… what if we made these powerful technologies as easy to use as Apple Keynote? What if we focused less on the widget, and more on the end-to-end process of crafting an experience for Brands, Agencies and Communities?

The result. is the Echo Experience Studio.

With the Experience Studio you can drag-and-drop a wide range of widgets on a canvas and configure every last detail until you get exactly what you need. With 1 click you can publish to a hosted site, mobile or embed for your own website.

Weather it’s a home for your #tag social media campaign, or covering a major news event with a sponsored microsite, or even helping event attendees follow the backchannel conversation on big screens in the event hall. It’s all possible with the Echo Experience Studio.

But most importantly, it’s beautiful and easy-to-use, right out of the box.

We’ve paid attention to pixel level details to make both building and using the experiences a joy. We’ve also created a simple pricing model with a generous free tier so that the widest range of people can take advantage of this new product.

We think this opens up a whole new set of possibilities for users who’ve never had access to these kind of tools before.

We’re excited to see what you create with the Echo Experience Studio.

We invite you to learn more at www.echostudio.co and try it out at my.echostudio.co.
