announcement app update - e-OstadElahi

One year after its release, e-OstadElahi has revamped its mobile app to provide a more pleasant browsing experience and new features.

What’s new?

A lighter and more refined design, with improved visuals, makes browsing and reading easier and more comfortable.

A more comprehensive menu makes it easier to access all the available posts. You already had the option to navigate through the site by selecting a tag or a category. You may now also access, directly from the menu, all the news, all the polls, as well as all the articles containing videos.

The comments are now managed directly by the app. However, an internet connection remains necessary to read the comments and to participate in the discussions by answering or sharing your experiences, thoughts, etc.

As soon as you open the app for the first time, the articles appearing on the main screen start downloading onto your phone and are stored in the cache of the app. You can then access these articles wherever you are (subway, plane, desert island…), whether you have an internet connection or not. To increase or decrease the storage space used by the app, all you need to do is go to the settings. The larger the storage space, the more articles available offline.

The bookmarks feature still allows you to select some posts to which you will be able to return quickly and easily via the “bookmarks” element in the menu.

If you are using an iOS device (iPhone and iPad) and have your Apple iCloud account activated, you have the possibility to synchronize your bookmarks on your different devices. Thus within a few seconds of bookmarking a post on your iPhone, it will appear in your bookmarks on your iPad (and vice versa). This feature also enables your bookmarks to be saved even if you delete the app from your device or if you install it on a new device, as long as you use the same Apple account with iCloud activated.

If you bookmark a post containing a video, you will be given the option to download the video onto your device, to enable you to watch it at any time even without internet connection. Here again, you may adjust the allocated storage space by going to the settings. Please note that while this feature concerns the large majority of the videos published on our website, some of the videos featured in our posts that do not belong to e-OstadElahi.com will not be available for download and offline access.

The search function is now executed in “real time”: the search results instantly appear, as soon as you start typing in the search field.

How do I get this new version?

This update is available on iPhone, iPad (iOS 8 minimum) and from Android 4.x.

If the e-OstadElahi.com app is already installed on your device and was not automatically updated, make sure that your operating system is up-to-date and visit your App Store (iPhone and iPad) or Play Store (Android) to execute the update.

If you have yet to install our app, search for “e-OstadElahi” on the App Store or the Play Store and download it for free.

    Awesome. Thank you for making it easier to access all the available posts, a new way to avoid procrastination for reading the articles and videos!
    Digital reading, like on iPads and iPods, can be more challenging than grabbing a pencil and a sticky note.
