🤘🤘 Pop is Live for Alpha Testers!

We are offically turning the Pop switch ON ✅ tonight for our AlphaTesters (about 200 testers who have access to our alpha app updates!)

Our creative and engineering teams have been pulling all-nighters designing and testing our incredibly cool, easy-to-use interface. We thought it would be fun to share what changes we've made for this new Alpha.

As you can see from the video Pop is life-like, slick and fun. It feels alive and that is part of the magic that we are so excited about.

Our sexy welcome page!

That sound ... music to our ears!

👋 Meet our Senior iOs Engineer, Ephraim Russo. He will explain the all exciting updates.

  • Huge security improvements! We now double encrpyt data used throughout the app and secure the Metal Pay app to use Apple's Data Protection capability.

  • We now support payments that failed processing in the History section.

  • Usability and consistency improvements across the board (animations, haptic feedback, positioning, scrolling, modal popups etc).

  • Tons of UI and performance bugs have been thoroughly stepped on and given a proper burial.

  • Huge performance boosts and refactors under the hood to pave the way for incredible new features

🤘 We are incredible excited to share this new update with our AlphaTesters and our community. Stay tuned as we will be sharing videos and comments the next few weeks.
