TinyGrab 2.0 Beta

Silence and secrecy is not something that we’re known for at TinyGrab. However with the recent TinyGrab 2.0 news and updates we’ve shrouded ourselves in a cloak of mystery, it’s time to step out a little bit and let you know what’s going on.

Development of TinyGrab 2.0 is about a month and a half behind schedule. There’s no hiding or denying that. We originally planned to launch a big beta testing programme on September 20th, but didn’t quite manage it. Allow me to explain to you the reasoning behind this.

TinyGrab 2.0 is a completely new system, built from the ground up. We have a brand new API and a completely new database system, because of this we need to completely overhaul our apps and the way that they work with our service. Every TinyGrab app has had to be rewritten to work with the new API and this is where the delay in development has taken place. We want to ship all of our new TinyGrab 2.0 apps at the same time, but some apps are easier to rewrite than others.

This week we are going to ship an open beta of TinyGrab 2.0, but a warning comes with this. Once you start using a TinyGrab 2.0 enabled app, you cannot switch back to the old system. It’s not possible. This is because when you first authenticate your account with a TinyGrab 2.0 app, we run a migration script to transfer your data from TinyGrab 1 to the TinyGrab 2.0 service. Our panel is pretty much ready to go and some of our apps are bursting at the seams with new features, unfortunately it’s not the grand launch we wanted to have.

Last week TinyGrab hosted a TinyGrab 2.0 launch party in London. The purpose of this party was to celebrate the hard work of the development team and to give the UK tech press a sneak peek of what’s to come. Now that we’re happy with the reaction that we received at the party and that the apps are stabling out, we’re ready to invite you to see and test TinyGrab 2.0 for yourselves.

I must thank you all for your patience and continued support through this troubling technical time. Let’s get ready to kick some ass.

Some of the features that you’ve requested for TinyGrab 2.0 that we’re going to roll out over the next week are as follows.

  • A better way to manage grabs with thumbnails / a completely overhauled Control Panel system.
  • Online folders / groups for your grabs.
  • Custom URLs for grabs. IE http://g.clydn.com/b4dg
  • SFTP, Amazon S3, Rackspace Cloud Files uploading support.
  • The ability to upload any file to your own server, with a short filename.
  • A new iPhone app with Facebook and Twitter sharing.

There are plenty more features that we’re working on getting ready and out over the next month, so for this period of time that we’re calling the ‘Open Beta’, we’re inviting all TinyGrab customers to upgrade their accounts to TinyGrab 2.0 Pro accounts for free. When the Open Beta is over you’ll roll back to your original account type, but we have a feeling you may want to pay the reduced subscription to upgrade to get all of the TinyGrab 2.0 features again.

OK, OK, we’ve listened to you. You were going to buy TinyGrab 2.0 anyway (naturally.) So why charge for the party? And we agree. So the TinyGrab 2.0 Launch Party is now at a new, fresh price of: FREE!

Everything we promised you yesterday is still happening: obviously there’s no free Pro licence for your money, but you no longer have to pay so that’s fine! Pro licences can be bought on the night, so bring your cash anyway and have a great evening on TinyGrab!

We really look forward to seeing you there. All we ask is that you sign up on Eventbrite (http://tinygrab.eventbrite.com) – only people who are registered to attend will be allowed into this exclusive event. Come celebrate 2.0 with the team!

TinyGrab 2.0 is coming. And to commemorate this new stage in social screenshot sharing, we at TinyGrab want to invite you to our 2.0 Launch Party!

On Friday 29th October in London, we are coming together to celebrate the culmination of months of effort from everyone on the TinyGrab team. From just £11, you can be there with us. So, what have we got for you?

  • Entry to a Central London venue
  • Two great bands and a DJ, for a fun-packed evening
  • FREE FOOD!
  • Freebies from TinyGrab
  • The chance to meet all the team!

Enticed you yet? If not, how about if we tell you that the price of the ticket includes… a year’s Pro licence for TinyGrab 2.0! So your £11 not only gets you a great night out – you also save £10 on a TinyGrab licence, and become one of the first people to experience the future of social screenshot sharing.

BUT be quick. Tickets are only £11 until September 30th, after which they will be £15. So, if you don’t want to miss out on a great evening out with TinyGrab, as well as a FREE Pro licence for a year, get your ticket now! – http://tinygrab.eventbrite.com

Further details will follow, but the Launch Party will be held at Drop East, a fantastic newly-refurbished venue in Shoreditch, Central London – just a short walk from Liverpool Street or Aldgate East stations. As mentioned above, food will be provided – and the venue is fully licensed so everyone can have a great evening! As a result, the event is for over-18s only, unless special arrangements can be made with either myself or Chris Leydon before hand; please do let us know if you’re 18 and want to come.
