🇦🇺 → 🇪🇹 Change reforestation program, Friends screen, performance improvements
Another update for this weekend! We moved all the social aspects of the app into a new Friends screen. From here, you can see all your friends' carbon scores, add new contacts and invite your friends to Neutral. We have a lot planned for this screen in the coming months, so stay tuned!
We released a small update that lets you change your reforestation program! Just head over to your subscription and press the button at the bottom conveniently titled "Change offset program". You can also use this to update your reforestation budget!
We also launched a massive performance boost across the app, so it should feel a lot snappier from here on out. More importantly, you'll be seeing a lot less loading screens across the app.
That's all for today! 🌲
🌍 Global News Feed
Another update this weekend! We're rolling out our Global News Feed that you can access on the new "News" tab. This shows the top
carbon neutral
related news from across the internet, powered by Google.
Tabs, News and a New Program
Quite a few things on today's update!
To make moving around the app a bit more seamless, we've divided up the pages into three key tabs:
  • Home, where you can see your emissions information)
  • Offset, where you can offset your emissions and see how your subscription is going
  • Settings, where you can tweak the app to your liking!
Program News Feed
We're starting to roll out program news feeds so you can stay up to date with how your offset subscription is going! It's currently on the following programs from OneTreePlanted:
  • Australia
  • India
  • Haiti
  • Brazil
  • Vietnam
  • Philippines
  • Indonesia
We'll be rolling out more soon, so watch this space!
New Partner
We're super happy to welcome ChaseAfrica into the mix with their new offset program in Kenya!
Green Electricity and Gas
Already paying for renewable energy in your utility bill? We now have an option in our questionnaire that takes this into account!
Misc fixes and changes
It wouldn't be a good update without fixing some pesky bugs, so here's the latest:
  • Fixed a bug where "cancel your subscription" button might not appear
  • Profile completion status no longer requires a photo
  • Added more location information to some of the offset programs
That's all for today, folks! 🎄
Update payment method 👻
Happy Halloween!
Just a short update today: we released a Payment screen so you can update your update, delete and add payment methods at any time.
Stay spooky 🎃
Login with email
Another update! Here's what we worked on today...
Login with email
Not super keen on using Google or Apple to log in? Not a problem. You can now create a Neutral account with an email address and password.
Misc fixes and improvements
We also made a few small fixes and a whole heap of general improvements that, if we did our job right, you won't notice 😉 Part of this was improving the performance of the Settings screen by using this magical concept called Virtualised Lists. We also moved Privacy into its own page.
That's all for today! 🌲
Login with Neutral, better images
We released quite a hefty update today! Some of the key changes are:
Login with Neutral
You can now log in to Canny (this platform we use to manage our changelog and feature requests) with your Neutral account! If you visit on the web, you'll be taken to a login screen. On the app, you'll be logged in automagically.
Better Images
Today's update includes improved and more reliable images for all of our reforestation programs! You'll see them immediately after updating, so get on it!
A new Settings screen
Based on your feedback, we split up the Profile elements in Settings into different pages so they're easier to update! As a side-effect, we also fixed a navigation issue that a few of you were facing.
Rate and review
Keen to rate and review Neutral on the App Store without offsetting first? Not a problem, you can find this in Settings under
⭐️ Rate and review
And finally, we released a whole slew of bugfixes and performance optimisations that you hopefully won't notice 😂
That's all for today, folks! Keep planting those trees. 🌲
Fix for loading contacts
We released a fix today for a bug that occurs when you load your contacts list. This bug only affected a small number of customers, throwing a cryptic error like
undefined is not an object (evaluating 'contacts.friends.length')
To update, just
close and re-open the app
or head into Settings and tap
"Check for Updates"
. That's all for now, folks!
We're starting a changelog
Big news today, we're starting a public changelog so you're always up to date with all the updates, improvements and fixes that are made in Neutral.
Even though we work on Neutral all the time, sometimes it may seem that not much is happening. This changelog is here to improve that very important part of the communication between you and us.
You'll always receive an update when we change something in the widget, or if needed all things we've changed is available on our public changelog page.
