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).

If the App Store doesn’t show an update for you, please use the links above. If messaging is not showing correctly through your profile or another player’s profile, browsing cache may need to be cleared.

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 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!

WallaBee 2.1.4 Notes

WallaBee 2.1.4

Long time no see! There’s a new update in the App Store and Google Play Store: Update 2.1.4

 

This version of WallaBee contains various bug fixes and text changes.

  • Store Third Row – We made adjustments, but they didn’t fix the issue. Hopefully we will have a fix on the next app update. The third row in the store “should” now behave like normal. We believe that the issue causing it to lock up has been resolved, but only time will tell (edited 9/29).
  • Item Context Menu – When recycling an item, the view now automatically reverts back to your pouch view.
  • Messaging – ‘Done’ has now been updated to ‘Return’ to reflect the true purpose of that button.
  • Uniques Page – Gathering information on Uniques now directs players to the correct locations.
  • Selling an Item – The popup message has been modified to remove the bit about being automatically removed from the market after 7 days.
  • Predictive Text – Report Place and Add A Place now have predictive/autocorrecting text.
  • GPS not found – When logging out of one account and logging in with another, the places tab would report a ‘cannot find gps’ screen. This has been fixed.
  • Android layout adjustments.
  • Added Munzee HQ Place Icon.
  • Last step away from wallab.ee! We’re now completely on WallaBeeGame.com and WallaBeeBlog.com

WallaBee 2.1.3 Notes

WallaBee 2.1.3

We are back with a new update in the App Store and Google Play Store: Update 2.1.3.

This version update contains some general housekeeping and a cool new feature for our newer players: Tutorials.

Tutorials

In the Settings Page, you can now find a new selection called “Tutorials” (go figure). These tutorials were designed to highlight beginning gameplay features of WallaBee, so our newer users don’t feel left in the dark. We currently have tutorials broken into three main categories: Pouch screen, Places screen, and Stores screen. Each category has tutorials that cover basic gameplay for each section of the app. We hope that this addition will help our ‘NewBees’ find their way a little easier.

Other tutorial content will be added at a later date, including those under the Profile tab.

Players will also notice that the pesky Introduction can now be exited without having to spam-click the NEXT button.
