App Updates

WallaBee 3.0 is LIVE!

Hello Collectors!

Version 3.0.0 is now available for iOS and Android! If you don’t see it available right away, it will be soon! Months of designing, building, and testing have gone into this new version of the app. We are excited to finally release the first step toward a better future with WallaBee! There are a ton of changes made to this new version, so it’s best to update your app ASAP and take a look around! Remember to email support with any concerns.

This is not an exhaustive list of updates, but we’re going to highlight some of the major changes you will immediately encounter.

  • WallaBee has been redesigned to work with universal navigation, instead of a limited tabbed environment. We have given our players a new Home Screen, which can be easily accessed anywhere in the app by tapping the Home button on the top left-hand side. A new Side Drawer navigation has also been implemented to quickly jump to major areas of the app without having to back out to the home screen, allowing for quick transitions during a drop. We have also implemented a new “Stack” functionality, which keeps track of which screens belong within the same family. For example, opening My Pouch and looking at items and their history can all be closed at once by selecting the ‘x’ button on the top right-hand side. This allows for some unique strategy when navigating from the Item Store to My Pouch during a drop. Experiment with which navigation works best for you!
  • All of your saved items are under one roof: My Collection! Show off your Favorite Items easier than ever before by toggling the heart icon on any saved item. You can also now upgrade how many items you want to show off with a new In-App Purchase option: Favorite Bundle!
  • My Pouch now has an easier way to organize your items, interact with your Lockbox, and mix to find new items. Selecting an item will allow you to view it like never before! Players will now be able to see the beautiful artwork and whimsical descriptions on the same page, in addition to actions you can take with the said item.
  • Need to post a trade request, send a message, or check-in on a friend? Head over to the new Community page – your one-stop screen for engaging with the community (outside of the market).
  • Did you miss the most recent item release? Check the bottom of your Home screen! The latest item released will now show after a fresh launch of the app, so you can keep up on your sets!
  • All players now have their own Inventory, where Uniques can be gifted directly to other players or yourself for the first time! This screen also allows players to see their quantity of on-hand Goodies like Honeycombs, Item locks, Royal Jellies, and Chest Keys.
  • In-App Purchases (IAP) have been added back to WallaBee! You can now easily purchase Royal Jellies, which can be swapped for other Goodies and special limited bundles. Check out the BUY screen for more info!
  • FREE GIFT! Hive Chests have been found in WallaVille! These little beauties have all kinds of goodies within them, including honeycombs, item locks, royal jellies, items, or combinations of them all! A special Daily Chest is available for players to claim every 24 hours, while other types of Hive Chests will have to be found via foraging. Open Hive Chests by triggering a timer or claim them immediately with a Chest Key! Hive Chests will begin appearing while foraging soon, so keep an eye out!

There are plenty of other Easter Eggs to stumble upon, so take a look around and enjoy!

WallaBee 2.2.7 Notes

Hello Collectors!

Version 2.2.7 is now available for iOS and Android! The team has been working diligently to make your playing experience better with every update. If there is a feature you would like to see, or a pesky bug that we have yet to address, we would love to hear from you! Remember to email support with any concerns.

Features

  • Collectibles: Search/Sorting/Reordering
  • Pouch: Search/Sorting/Reordering
    • Long-press for item menu
  • Favorite items (all items; limit 12)
  • Foraging screen reimplemented
  • Adjusted speed of star on item created/found pages
  • Fixed an issue with store showing the incorrect image during drop
  • Minor performance improvements and bug fixes

Collectibles: Search/Sorting/Reordering

Players can search, organize, and sort their items in every set and subset of the Collectibles section of the app.

Pouch: Search/Sorting/Reordering

Search by item name, number, and status (Locked, Market, Trade)!

Move items in your pouch by utilizing the Move Mode button! Sort items automatically based on Alphabetical (ascending), Number (ascending), and item created (oldest at the top).

Long-press an item to access the context menu from the pouch! This will save you lots of time!

Items that have requirements to open (Wishing Well) will now only show their extra options when the requirements are met.

Favorite Items

Players can mark any saved item as a Favorite by toggling the heart icon while viewing the item. We are limiting this feature to 12 items per player, with the possibility of this number growing in the future.

View the item from its set or the Favorites section to remove it from your Favorites.

Foraging Screen Update

We’ve brought back a familiar screen, but with a twist! Players will now see Benson’s magnifying glass move about the screen in order to find honeycombs and items when foraging! Adding this screen allows us to reduce the number of API calls made to the server, increasing performance during peak times.

 


Known Issues

We will update this list and the known issues

  • Locked items still show the old icon (header updated).
  • Store items sometimes show an incorrect set icon.

WallaBee 2.2.5 & 2.2.6 Notes

Hello Collectors!

Version 2.2.5 2.2.6 is now available for iOS in the App Store! Android users will see the update available very soon on the Play Store! The WallaBee team has been working diligently to make your playing experience better with every update. If there is a feature you would like to see, or a pesky bug that we haven’t addressed, we would love to hear from you. Remember to email support with any concerns.

To allow for players to update, there will be a 24 hour drop-free time period beginning now 7:15am, Saturday April 6th (CDT). Expired

Features

  • NEW BRANDING! We have updated the WallaBee logo and various icons within the game. You’ll find all of our beautiful Set Icons updated to a wonderful flat style, along with some icon touchups on your profile page. You’ll also see much more of Benson! What’s not to love there!
  • Collectibles have been added as a new collection type. Jump further down in the blog to read more.
  • Unique Items have been split into various “themed” subsets.
  • Sets are now broken up by generation.
  • Items can now be purchased with “Buy It Now” option from the market without a player listing.
  • Adjusted profile layout.
  • Reorganized Settings page.
  • Various bug fixes.
    • Profile bio doesn’t disappear when viewing from settings page (and no changes are made).
    • Send Message button updated for Return key (line break).
    • “Forever scroll” through the Store.
    • Optimized image loading in the Store
    • Honeycomb balance shows in Market.
    • Unable to send blank messages.

Collectibles

We’re taking a new approach to items that previously lived on your profile page (Branded, Wallagraphic, and Uniques)! You’ll now find a “Collectibles” section on your profile tab that holds all items in WallaBee that don’t fit into a WB-released set.

Similar to how all WallaBee Sets have a circular icon, all Collectibles will have a star-shaped icon. Collectibles will also only show you items and subsets that you have collected, instead of displaying missing ‘gaps’ in your collection. This means that all Collectibles are 100% optional to collect, without the dreaded “x/y” insinuating you have to collect them. Here’s a quick breakdown of the various new categories you’ll find within Collectibles.

Exclusive Items

Previously known as WallaBee Uniques, these items are obtained through normal gameplay (foraging, mixing, purchasing in store).

Examples of these are WallaBy, Super Burger, and Wand Of Transformation.

Themed Exclusive Items

An extension of the above, these items are categorized for your convenience by their theme.

Examples of these are Grab Bags, Mixers, and Branded Items.

Wallagraphic Items

This set no longer has a x/y view. Not interested in collecting these? No worries!

Unique Items

100% Player or Staff distributed items. Can be commissioned by players when available.

Examples include Saint Nicholas, Yorkshire Rose, and Jack Frost.

Themed Unique Items

Just like the above, but themed into smaller player-owned (or staff-owned) subsets.

All Themed Unique subsets will contain a rainbow border around the edge of the star, with a customized icon within.
This helps distinguish a player-owned set from a Themed Exclusive set

Examples include BAU items, Texas Music Legends, and Fantastic Creatures.

Generations

One issue that newer players have when creating an account is the sheer amount of items there are to collect. The Sets page can be really intimidating with over 170 sets listed. So in order to help our organizing efforts, improve app performance, and ease newer players into collecting in smaller chunks… we’ve split the long list of sets into “bite-sized” bits. With this update, each generation contains 50 sets. We know this will take some getting used to for our current players, but we are sure the transition will be quick to learn! Our website (and ItemBrowser) also reflects this update to help keep consistency.

We look forward to adding even more updates soon, including the ability to save variants! It’s coming, don’t worry. 😉

WallaBee 2.2.4 Notes

Hello Collectors!

It’s been a while, but we’re back with another update! We’ve fixed some bugs, added some new features, and paved the way for some awesome things to come! Version 2.2.4 is now available for iOS and Android! We work diligently to make your experience playing WallaBee better with every update. If there is a feature you would like to see, or a pesky bug that we haven’t addressed in our Weekly Buzz segment, we would love to hear from you. Remember to check out the Weekly Buzz for current updates.

Features

  • Buy Items Instantly!
    • Items have been added to the Market as a ‘buy-it-now’ option. Need Red Paint, but don’t want to stalk the store for hours? Now you can buy it immediately and save yourself some aggravation. This won’t apply to all items, so you still may have to forage for those WallaBee Mixers!
    • There is a timeout of ten seconds between purchases of the same item.
    • NOTE: New items will not be available through this method until after a drop.
  • New Uniques Page
    • Move Mode allows for faster adjustments. No need to long-press each card, simply tap! Hit ‘Done’ to save the order.
    • Sorting Uniques has never been easier! Players can sort their Uniques by Alphabetical, Number, or Release Date. Adjusting.
    • Live search for items you have saved. Works for items or numbers.
    • Favorite items! By selecting a saved item’s context menu, players can select which items display in the new Favorites tab.

  • Updated Foraging Timer
    • We’ve upped the number of forages at each location from 3 to 10!
  • Enhanced Item Dropping
    • You can now drop item after item without having to go back a page! This was a ‘bug’ in a previous build, but we thought it might make a nice new addition to your dropping needs.

Bug Fixes

  • Item View Crash
  • Performing an action that triggers a pop up sometimes ‘freezes,’ which needs a hard close to fix
  • Places List – Bottom of row doesn’t register input.
  • Sets Page always shows ‘try again’ before loading view
  • Misc. minor bugs

WallaBee 2.2.0 Notes

WallaBee 2.2.0

Hello Collectors!

We are pleased to announce that the next pivotal update for WallaBee has now been released for iOS and Android!

WallaBee 2.2.0 brings a much anticipated feature to the game (which some users have already figured out through ItemBee). This new feature will help our worldwide players travel easier, set up trades faster, and pick up all their locked items from far away locations… that’s right, we’re releasing the Lock Box! Other bug fixes have been made with this update, including the pesky popup freeze (which we’re almost certain we have figured out this time), some double-tap issues, and faster responses in various areas of the app.

Lock Box

The following bit of information contains spoilers about how the Lock Box works. For those who want to figure this new feature on their own, you may want to skip down a bit to the Web Messaging section of this blog post.

We are very excited to finally release this Lock Box feature to the community. Our Staff and BeeKeepers have been testing this ever since the teaser blog post last week, with its themed phrasing, and believe it’s ready to be shared. To help you get comfortable with this new addition, we have compiled some basic details to help you get started.

  1. The Lock Box can be found on your Profile tab, underneath Inbox and Forums.
    1. The previous list of locked items is no longer available through the Pouch tab.
  2. The Lock Box is a combination of all your locked items: those at places, in your Pouch, or in the Lock Box.
  3. You can move items directly to your Lock Box from either your pouch (via tapping a locked item) or from a Place (utilizing the WallaDrone moving service).
  4. Players can move items in and out of their Lock Box at no charge. The lock remains on the item at all times, until broken in their pouch (as per normal).
  5. Players can still pick up and drop locked items at Places, just like before.
  6. Players can choose to have the WallaDrone moving service return locked items from a Place to their Lock Box, by paying a fee of 250 hc per item.
    1. This feature is not necessary, but is a convenient option if an item you need is too far away.
  7. Three new activity types are being released: WallaDrone moving service, stashing in Lock Box, and removing from Lock Box.
  8. Players can only see their own Lock Box in-app, but still be seen through their Lock List via ItemBee and ItemBrowser.
  9. ItemBee and ItemBrowser are already Lock Box ready, so if the item you’re looking for is in someone’s Lock Box (like Rainbow Santa Hat #1), it will display correctly.
  10. Lock Box is organized by set, similar to the Market layout.
  11. Uniques are organized by Type (WallaBee Uniques at top, Player Uniques at bottom) and then by Release Date.
  12. Before moving an item from a Place to Lock Box via WallaDrone, players can use the magnifying glass to view which location the item is at. This can help players determine whether they should use the service or not.

Edits:

  • Locks will be on sale until the end of the week. Sale closes Monday, October 22nd at 9:30am CDT (2:30pm UTC).
  • #12 above

Web Messaging

After our last website update (web forums), many members of the community requested the ability to message players through the website. This feature would help them set up trades, without having to move back and forth so much from their keyboard to their phone… saving them valuable ‘store watching’ time. Well, we listened to your requests, and have added messaging to WallaBeeGame.com! You can access this feature by clicking on anyone’s profile, or by heading to your Profile on the website. This will make navigating from the forums to send someone a PM much faster.

Please note that this feature was not created to compete with other services you may be using, such as Messenger, Slack, GroupMe, etc. Messaging through the web is the same as in the app, so links to websites will still not work (thanks, React).

WallaBee 2.1.6 Notes

WallaBee 2.1.6

There’s a new update coming to the App Store and Google Play Store: Update 2.1.6.

WallaBee 2.1.6 fixes a few bugs, including the newly annoying overlay freeze and forum issues.

  • Added Forums access to the website.
  • Fixed multiple popup bugs that left players stuck looking at a ‘frozen’ screen.
  • Fixed forums scrolling issue.
  • Fixed forums reply button.
  • Fixed forums pagination issue which made navigating to a new page trigger a “Try again” screen.
  • Fixed a double trade request bug.
  • Fixed a bug that allowed ingredients to create multiple items.
  • Fixed an item context menu bug.
  • Fixed flashing splash screen.
  • Increased number of local places from 50 to 70.
  • Updated Foraging speed and smoothness.
  • Updated achievement progress to show a more accurate number.
  • Updated the trade arrow to not get cut off.
  • Updated pouch rank to obey the order of recent activity. Swapped items should now be at the top of the pouch, instead of randomly thrown in the middle.

Web Forums

Speaking of forum updates, we have also added access to them through our website! Set up trades and auctions with ease, quickly access other players’ profiles to view their wishlists, and chat with players from all over the world, all from the comfort of your computer. Players will also be able to quickly tell who is Staff or a BeeKeeper with helpful labels. Judy put in a ton of work on this great addition, so make sure to drop @JudyPop some love if you enjoy them!
