Creating a compelling user experience

When faced with a terrible hangover, you first fear that you are going to die, then you fear you are not going to die. That’s the feeling we had when we started developing our new user experience.

Regards from Sniffie Engineering, Week 11/2017

Hello everyone!

This week we are finishing up testing of 0.4 for release by next week. Additional features from last week’s update post include the ability to include and exclude results based on text patterns as well as ability to include also hidden elements in the web extraction.

Our web service redesign project is well underway. We really, really appreciate the feedback from all of our customers interviewed so far. We are currently working on prototypes that we’ll share next week with these customers for additional feedback. All feedback regarding web service features and especially user experience is still highly appreciated. Thus, if you have any, please contact your Sniffie contact person. We are building the service for you, so we really want to hear your feedback!
