Booost 1.3 is now live
3 minute read
Earlier in the month we launched Booost v1.3, something which has been in the works for a while now. It’s all down to the tireless work of our developers, who’ve been grafting away behind the scenes to bring about improvements for our users.
As well as some exciting new features, we’ve fixed bugs which had been causing issues for some users. Read the changelog to to see a full list of everything which has been updated.
I wanted to take the chance to go over why these new features are so important, highlighting specific cases where students will benefit.
This has been one of our most requested features since the dawn of Booost. Users now have the option to sync Booost to any public calendar, and the process is as simple as can be.
Any changes made in the external calendar will reflect in Booost automatically, removing any need to jump between the two.
That’s convenient for anyone, but for a student with executive function challenges, it can be a lifesaver. They can rest assured their day is planned out in Booost, and that any changes made to their timetable will be reflected there too.
For them, it’s a layer of stress removed when it comes to organising their studies.
Linking multiple calendars
It doesn’t stop at one. Users have the option to sync up multiple calendars to their Booost account, which means they could have their academic, work, and personal schedules in one place.
So, no more jumping around between multiple apps to keep on top of things. Instead, Booost can serve as a centralised hub for planning activities.
Again, this is a convenience for anybody. But, for a student with short-term memory challenges, it’s even more helpful. It’s easy to forget to check all your calendars when they’re stored in different places, and ultimately it’ll lead to missing things or double-booking yourself.
By linking them all to Booost students can rest assured everything they need to see is in one place. Jumping between apps and running between lessons can be a thing of the past.
One of the staples of Booost has always been its checklist features. It gives users the option of breaking down a task or an event into chunks, making them more manageable and easier to get started on.
With Booost 1.3 users can now order these however they’d like, giving the option to structure to-do lists in the way that works for them.
Many students prefer to have this control over the way they work, and we wanted to make sure we gave it to them.
Just the beginning
I’ve been really excited to bring the news of Booost v1.3, and the features that came with it. Booost has over 10,000 users now and the update should bring them a lot of value.
Of course, there’s always room to improve, and that’s exactly what we’re doing. Conversations around the next stage of Booost are already taking place, and we’re keen to make sure it develops with one thing at the forefront: the users.
But, for now, we’re chuffed that Booost 1.3 has hit the shelves.
