NUGL Releases Major App Update in Response to Community Feedback

LOS ANGELES, Oct. 10, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NetworkWire – NUGL Inc. (OTC: NUGL) (the “Company”), the cannabis industry's new standard of technology, today reports a major update to its iOS app available in the Apple Store and its Android app available in the Google Play Store. 

NUGL has taken major steps in the past 30 days to address community feedback and demand for a more robust mobile application.  With a marketing launch underway, the Company has created an open dialogue, enabling its user base to give input and have that input directly affect future software development.  “We have received a substantive amount of feedback from our user base and we listen to it.  Then we act on it.  A large portion of our user base lives an on-the-go mobile lifestyle, and they want all the functionality and features we offer to be accessible on their phones.  When you are building a software application that is this massive and has an abundance of features, it is not an easy task.  Even companies like Instagram and LinkedIn do not offer all of their desktop features on their mobile versions,” stated Ryan Bartlette, CMO of NUGL.

NUGL has expanded its development team this month and is putting major focus on the functionality of the NUGL mobile application.  The Company plans to make every feature offered on its web application available for the mobile application, as well.  “Industry standards for fortune 500 technology companies generally do not allow a lot of the backend administrative functionality to be included in the mobile versions of software.  The reason for this is certain functions are done more easily on a larger computer screen.  It is much more difficult to create a good user experience on a smaller platform such as a phone.  Our community is heavily based on their phones, so we will make NUGL as mobile and app friendly as possible,” said Brandon Vargas, CEO of NUGL. recently reported: “Mobile application store market is expected to witness robust growth through 2020. Gaming applications are playing a key role in the growth of the global mobile application stores market.”   NUGL understands what its users want and the NUGL team is not afraid to be unconventional in accomplishing its goals.  The Company employs  “By the people, for the people” as its methodology for building software, and this is just another example of that methodology in action. 

NUGL is launching a major mobile application update today that will include:

  • Profiles
    • Newly redesigned profile pages
    • Updated brand profiles to match style and layout of listing profiles
    • Addition of new swipe gestures to profile pages
    • Addition of social media links to profile pages
