Announcing the uMake Community

  We are very excited to announce the launch of the uMake community with our latest version of uMake, v1.1.6. We wanted to create a space for uMakers to be able to share their designs, get and give feedback and likes, and follow each other. We know how important collaboration and inspiration is for creatives, and have been working hard to make uMake more collaborative. This is only the beginning  however, and we are looking forward to a future of collaborative design within uMake.  

The uMake community lets users share their designs at any stage of completion right through the creation editor. Simply tap the blue arrow next to the top menu to share a design, then select if you would like to share a still image or a photo. From there you can choose to also share to your Facebook and Twitter profiles. Once you are happy with your image or video, simply tap the Blue arrow again to publish, and your work will publish to the uMake community as well as any other social networks you've chosen to share to.

  While you can share your designs, you can also veiw designs others have shared. To explore others' designs, simply tap the compass icon in the new bottom menu when you are in the file manager. This will take you to the 'Explore' section of the community, where you can view all designs posted by other uMakers. As you scroll down, any designs that were posted as videos will move, emphasizing the 3D aspect of uMake. You can like designs and follow other designers from the main feed. If you want to comment on a design or see it larger, tapping on any design will open up the design to be full screen. Here you can leave a comment, and also see other designs by that uMaker.

As you begin to follow other uMakers, you will start to create your own feed of people you follow. IF you want to just see their work and yours, tapping the 'Heart' icon all the way to the left will show you your custom feed of content that you've chosen to follow.

With that said, we are excited to be offereing a few of our awesome screen cleaning cloths and emoji anti-stress balls to anyone who posts to the community in the first two weeks. So if you haven't tried out the community yet, give it a go, share a design, leave a comment, and check it out. We think you will love it. We've worked hard to make the new uMake community fun and easy to use, and have great plans for it. That said, we would love any feedback you might have that could help us make it better and more collaborative, so feel free to drop us a line on facebook or via e-mail. If you'd like to learn more or see a live demo of how to use it, check out our Facebook Live video we did to celebrate the launch right here. We hope you will really enjoy the uMake community, and are as excited about it as we are!
