@David (Front End Developer)

  • Mitigated the app cookies issue, this issue forces users to re-sign-in every time they quit the app. Spent 1 to 2 days investigating, before firebase fixed bug as mentioned by @William.
  • Fixed not enough gas error when undelegating in app. This is due to balance checking bug, introduced when refactoring. The fix is included in 0.13.2, which has been released in Android. We are still undergoing Apple review process in iOS.

@Edmond (Operations)

Previous week:

  • Civic Liker no.: 1045, the trend of Civic Liker registration continue to go down after the Christmas boost. This is the first time we have a drop in total civic liker number. We expect this number to rise after lunar new year campaign.

  • New app download: iOS 145, Android 98.

  • Spent some time lobbying bookstores and printed some Civic Liker promotional material for their use. HK bookstores are all connected and ready. No Taiwan bookstores are offering any discount yet, so we won’t include them in the promotion list this time. We will roll out another wave of promotion later, during the Taipei book exhibition.
