Introducing photowalks, a new interface, and celebrating with new decks

Today, we’re introducing a new interface to Dérive app. After we significantly updated the functionality last year, we’ve now focussed on making the experience of using Dérive app smoother and more intuitive.

We’re celebrating this with the introduction of a new deck of cards, available to everyone, put together for São Paulo, the largest city in the southern hemisphere.

We’ve also added a score, also available to everyone, very well suited for when visiting Brazil.

Possibly the big news in this update is that we are introducing photowalks. A photowalk is like a photomarathon, where participants have to submit photos on a series of given tasks. In Dérive app, scores and events can now be marked as a ‘photowalk’.
One feature of a photowalk in Dérive app is that all participants, after completing the photowalk, can see the submissions of all other participants, irrespective of whether their submissions are open, or not, to the general public.
We’ve added an additional score, for Brazil, that’s marked as a photowalk.

Then, you might be aware of the whole Musk malarky around Twitter. Being on Twitter is now a liability, is likely to remain like this for a while, and Musk’s erratic behaviour as the head of Twitter might have heralded the slow death of the platform.
So, we are now on Mastodon, where we will post a daily task for you to enjoy.

You can try out the updated interface today. While we’re testing, you can switch back-and-forth between the old and the new, from the home screen.
Let us know if you encounter any issues.

Take note: the old interface does not recognise scores and events as photowalks.
