Smooth sailing in the community

iOS subscription visibility fix

We've fixed an issue where some user accounts weren't showing as active under the Users screen (formerly known as Passion Metrics). Now, your users' subscriptions should display correctly as active when they should be! 🎉

Reset filter button back in action on the Users screen

Looks like the reset filter button took a little vacation, leaving your filtering needs hanging. Our team worked their magic, and now that button is back on track, ready to clear those filters faster than you can say "reset".

Check out the Home screen for the latest updates

You'll find the "What's New" section conveniently located with a bell icon on the right corner. Stay in the loop with our latest releases and announcements, now right from your Home screen.

Styling your app

We've made a couple of tweaks to enhance the styling menu on preview. Now, each time you hit the save button during preview mode, we make sure a confirmation message pops up. It's the little things that make app building even smoother.

Custom push notifications back to normal

Custom notifications are back to their fabulous selves, no longer stuck on "users who signed up but didn't subscribe." Time to send those messages to the right crowd again!

 "Add Content" menu behaving

We've ironed out the kinks in the "Add Content" menu. It's now showing up exactly when it's supposed to, like a well-behaved guest at a party.

Ever tried rearranging your courses in a pricing plan 💸, only to find yourself stuck in a frustrating loop? That's old news. Now, you can tweak your pricing plans and save them easily.

February 2024


Cancel free pricing plans for your end-users

Before, some manual user enrollments were labeled incorrectly, making it hard to remove them. We've fixed this. Now, you can easily cancel 🆓 free plans, and users will lose access right away. Note: On the iOS or Android app, access is lost when the user closes and reopens the app.

Full course titles now visible on the Sales Page

Good news for creators with long course titles! ⌨️ We've resolved an issue where titles were getting cut off on the Sales Page. Your entire course names will now display without any cuts.

Android apps crashing no more

There was a hiccup with PassionMessaging, causing sudden shutdowns for Android 14 users. Now, PassionMessaging takes a break for Android 14 and above, ensuring smooth performance for versions below 14 and all iOS. 🎉  More good news: Your community push notifications should not be affected in any way.

January 2024


No more Mickey Mouse voices

🐭 Surprise cameo: "Mickey Mouse" voices might have dropped in on some of your .mp4 and .mov videos for a bit. Now, all audios should feature the original voices.

Close sequence videos easily with close (X) button

Before, closing certain videos 🎥 in the sequence preview was a bit tricky for some of your clients. But fear not – our update adds a close (X) button for a straightforward exit. 🎥🚀

Better viewing on 6.1-inch screens

Some creators using phones with 6.1-inch screens📱faced problems with their web apps—some buttons were not fully clickable, so we've fixed it.

Navigate community notifications with ease

Say farewell to back button mysteries. Clicking the bell icon is now a smooth groove 💃, allowing you to swing back and forth through your community messages as if you're on the dance floor.

December 2023


Borderless videos

Some videos were previously on a 'black tie' dress code, displaying with black borders. 📹 🕶️ We've now convinced them to loosen up and go borderless, ensuring they look great.

Enhanced community visibility

Ever added a new community and wondered why your existing customers couldn't see it? 🤔 Now, when you add new communities to a pricing plan, messages won't play hide-and-seek. Your customers can now join the party 🎉

An immersive experience for your customers

🔄 Now, your customers just need to rotate their phones, and your videos will adapt to their preferred view.

Community messages now appearing for all

🕵️‍♂️ We solved the case of vanishing messages in the community. It was like the Bermuda Triangle of messages—empty, no history 🌊💬 That's fixed; we've brought the messages back from the mysterious void.

Landscape thumbnails for your portrait videos 

Now, for 📹 portrait videos, you can use landscape thumbnails to create awesome previews. Your customers will love it!

Youtube videos improvement

Some YouTube videos 📹 were visible on your web app but not on your iOS or Android apps. Strange, isn't it? Now, your customers can view them on your native apps as well.

Dynamic progress circle

For some users, the progress circle was stuck on zero. Now their completed lessons are joining the circle dance. 🕺💃 Learning journey in motion.

Optimized iPad video playback

We fixed how videos look on iPad, so now your customers can enjoy your content smoothly on that device.

Pricing plans descriptions length

We noticed some apps were rejected because the pricing plan description was too long. We're updating the limit from 80 to 45 characters to avoid that. In the meantime, try to keep your pricing plan description short 🙏.

October 2023


Optimized video loading

Previously, some apps crashed when opened due to large video files taking up too much device memory. After a busy few weeks, we've switched to smaller transcoded video files. So the videos should load better now. And your app shouldn't crash.

Better video length calculation

Video lengths are now calculated during upload and stored for later use, rather than when your clients press play. This also means your videos should load better now.

YouTube video integration update

    Embedded YouTube videos used to play 'hide and seek,' cutting off on desktop. YouTube changed their URL format, and we had to catch up. But don't worry, now YouTube videos play smoothly. It's all part of the tech circle of life.

    YouTube and Vimeo videos unleashed

      Surprisingly, YouTube and Vimeo videos embedded in lessons were only playing in full-screen mode 🤔. We fixed that, and now you can play them within your lessons.

      Responsive video orientation

        When you flipped your device, some of the videos acted up. We've had a little chat with them, and now they play nicely, adapting to your device's orientation in fullscreen.

        Widget clarity

        Ever had your image, video, and file widgets play dress-up as buttons? It was a bit of a mix-up, but we've set things straight. Now you won't see them imitating buttons anymore 😂

        September 2023


        Password reset

        When trying to reset their password, your clients received a link 🔗 that redirected to your web app. That was…not ideal. It’s fixed now, and the link redirects to your native apps so they can change their passwords.

        Clearer tiles for light backgrounds

        PassionFighters using a light background color might have noticed a weird issue with white text on their Netflix-style content libraries. Now those tiles are looking better than ever 🙌.

        Cloned lessons update

        You never knew where cloned lessons were going to appear. It was like playing "Where's Waldo?", but without the fun 🙄. We reviewed the logic, and now you will find them after the original ones. On top of that, we got rid of the <Copy of> label that was bothering you.

        Consistent hero images

        Previously, hero images appeared differently on different devices and always had a dark gradient over them. We have now made sure that they look great on all devices 💁. If the image has no text, the gradient will no longer appear.

        Carousel images in full view

        The images and text shown in the Sales Page carousel were cut off 👀. Not a great first impression, right? It's all good now though.

        Sharp thumbnails

        Some images uploaded as thumbnails were looking kind of blurry 🌪️. Well, the blurriness is now history. If you re-upload them, they should look crystal clear.

        Netflix-Style content library labels

          Your section label name 📛 in your Netflix-style content library was not appearing. At all. Our bad, we should have let you know that we did that to keep your layout clean. We have now removed the label to avoid any confusion.

          Improved navigation

          Previously, moving from the Sales Page to another tab might have taken forever ⌛. We have fixed that, so now you can navigate your tabs without being stuck in limbo.
