ANDROID! (and other updates)

It's time to welcome our Android community to the party.

I'm super excited to launch a few updates to the Outbound platforms today, the foremost being our new Android app.

Android

Thanks to our community for (semi) patiently waiting on us to get our Android app built. We're a small team, and sometimes things take a bit. You'll find all the core Outbound functionality available, like searching for adventures, saving, leaving reviews, making collections, and reading stories. Other more advanced features like adding photos to adventures are on the way.

Download the app on the Google Play Store!

iOS

We've also made some updates to the iOS app, both on the design and functionality fronts.

Saves/Adding to Lists

Previously, we had saving, adding to lists, and 'done it'. We've simplified saving into a single action on both the web, iOS and Android. After extensive discussion with the community and analysis of usage data, we found that most people were using 'save' as a 'like', which didn't end up being very useful. Saves just ended up in a big bucket that didn't keep anything organized.

The new implementation focuses on adding adventures to lists, as this is the functionality that keeps your saves organized an actionable; the majority of our community segments their lists either by location or trip. 

Don't worry, your old 'saves' and 'done' adventures still exist as lists called 'Things I Want to Do' and 'Things I've Done' respectively.


As always, if you have any suggestions or feedback, you can reach us at support@theoutbound.com.
