Achievement unlocked!

A while ago we decided that we wanted to simplify posting your opinion about products you like on prod.ly. Originally we had envisioned that people would want to write short statements akin to Tweets in the spur of the moment and longer reviews on the prod.ly website. This version unifies those, by removing the previous 140-character limit.

The most noticeable improvements relate to loading and display of images. You should notice that scrolling is much smoother in this version than previously, due to a great deal of performance tweaks our development team has implemented.

The new version is available on the app store.
