My Gamer Card <gamercard-app>
"Bringing Xbox Live to Bebo"
|New Reviews Section||5/20/09|
|So, as some of you have realised, I've launched a new section of My Gamer Card, allowing users to review games. All you have to is go to http://apps.bebo.com/gamercard/ and click the title of the game you wish to review, and you will be presented with a list of reviews of that game. And if you want to review it, just hit the link at the top. You can also easily check out what your Bebo friends are reviewing by simply clicking the "Friends Reviews" tab on any page you see it.|
I may consider some time in the future setting up a dedicated review site to showcase the best of the best, as voted for by the users in a new feature I will work on soon. Other possibilities include comments and prizes for the best reviews, although prizes really depends on how much I make on advertising, after paying for my hosting. If I can afford it, it'll probably be MS Points, but I can't guarantee this will ever happen.
This is still in Beta, and still needs work. Like, at the moment it'll only show the 10 most recent reviews. I plan on adding in pages, and search, so those considering getting a game can see what others think before buying, the rating system I already mentioned and possilby comments (although I'm worried about spam).
Anyway, let me know what you think, leave comments here with any criticism (good or bad), and any suggestions you may have.
|Lots of changes, and more to come||1/4/09|
|Many of you will already have noticed that there have been a fair few changes to the app since it first launched. But it is now a place where you can search friends Gamertags to see if their on Bebo, keep up to date with latest friend achievements, and find others with a similar taste in games to you.|
There is still more features to come, and to those worrying about change being bad, your Gamertag will still display on your profile as usual, and new features will not be forced upon users. They are 100% optional.
If you go to the app canvas page now - http://apps.bebo.com/gamercard/ - you will see many new features currently live, and keep an eye out for new, upcoming features.
Please leave a comment here to tell me what you think, and to suggest new features which will make this a must-have app.
|Updates to My Gamer Card App||11/3/08|
|I'm going to start making upgrades to the My Gamer Card app soon and I just wanted to get my current (and future) app user's opinion on my ideas.|
I was considering building a gaming community into this app, allowing users to seek out other players on Bebo (and perhaps Facebook), add your favourite games, maps, tracks, etc. in order to match up with other Bebo users who like the same games. The update would also allow you to challenge players, and see your notifications in your profile module. It could also be a place to discuss current and upcoming games without the need to register on a different site, just use Bebo.
Basically I want to know what you, the users, think. I can't promise all these features will be included, but I'll certainly give it a shot if there's enough interest.
So post your opinions, criticism or feature request as comments on this blog, and I will keep all app users updated.
