SERVER UPGRADE IN QUEUE - WILL HAVE SOME DOWNTIME!
Hi Folks, hows it going? Seems all great looking at your emails & reviews!! We see mainly 2 requests prominent nowadays - ability to block user & separate Hindi English texts. We will begin working on both points very soon!
However, this post is to tell about a nice to have problem that a growing startup faces (that we faced 3 time prior already) - server chocking. You must have seen lately the app has having intermittent downtime - and you guessed it right - which is because of sudden jump in users due to our super active consistent work in Android. Only last month we added almost double the number of android users than the prior highest record!!
So, in that regard, we are now shifting to a new powerful server - not just powerful, a 5 times powerful server than current!! Whoa! It should care about the app speed for at least one year now! The earlier it starts to choke, the better :).
We are already in process of migration. And as includes a certain downtime (5 min - 6 hours user to user depending on various factors), we will aim for India Late night time.
Hope to see you on new server very soon!!
Launched Jainism category in Android. Still in try out phase.

REJOICE - WDF CROSSED 3,00,000 DOWNLOADS!
Just to give you a massive update - last month your app had 3,00,000th download!!
Yes! And all this without any marketing done in direct / indirect sorts! 177k on Android & 123k on iOS! And in the month of Dec'15, we had our highest download numbers by far!
This is perfect start to the new year - which we believe will be most defining year of this app - as we have big plans going forward in terms of both features in this app & reach to masses! You will have plenty of nice surprises to digest!!
It has been a great journey so far when we look back. And a big thanks to all the users esp our old users, mods & top uploaders - WDF always has a special place for you - you all make this app what it is today!
BIG UPDATE COMING TOMORROW!!
Hi, Your Diwali surprise gift has been dispatched and will be delivered on your play store tomorrow!!
Get ready to enter to a whole new world in the app!!
The biggest update since app launched 4 years back!!
See you tomorrow guys :) !!
MAJOR ANNOUNCEMENT - NEW SIMILAR MESSAGE FINDING ENGINE INSTALLED!!
Finally, much awaited, much desired, much needed improvement has been done to your app! Damn!
We have been successful in installing a brand new dupli finding engine (when someone uploads a message). It is not just another engine - it is currently one of the world’s best!
Now not only will it search fast - it will also search NON-ENGLISH characters - which will reduce the inflow of so many dupli hindi messages which couldn’t be bought earlier. This will be major accomplishment if turns out as expected.
Also, now short messages (like Status Updates) will also be detected. Earlier only large message duplicates were normally found.
Hope we will have a significant positive impact of this in app - in ease of work for mods also - which is top priority these days.
Signing off on a relief note!
WDF gets COMMENTS, finally!
+ Don't just 'like', now even tell the uploader who you feel about the message!!
Comments dependent categories like 'Puzzles', now finally available - one of the most requested feature!!
Interact / make friends with fellow iOS users & ever growing Android users community!!
+ If theme disturbs you, can now disable it.
+ Various small improvements throughout the app!
Keep showering us with your love!! More big updates in Queue!!
Love you all!
