As we move forward into the new year, we are thrilled to share some important updates and changes to the R+evolution platform. These changes reflect our wholehearted commitment to our community-driven values, to honoring feedback, and to fostering a grassroots revolution of the animal training industry.
Over the past weeks, we have been soliciting and receiving thoughtful feedback and insights from our esteemed membership. Your valuable input has played a pivotal role in shaping the direction of the platform, and we are excited to unveil the latest developments directly resulting from this collaborative effort.
No More Branded App:
We paid attention when the Palestinian Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) National Committee listed Wix among the list of companies to boycott, limit financial contributions to, or otherwise stop supporting. In response, we are discontinuing the branded app, which will reduce our monthly payments to Wix by 84%, from $237 per month to only $38 per month. If you prefer a mobile app experience, fear not, you can still access all the familiar app features through Wix Spaces. This change will go into effect immediately, and we understand this transition will feel sudden. We believe this urgent issue requires fast action.
Enhanced Mobile-Friendly Website:
In preparation for the shift away from the branded app and in response to feedback from the community, we are actively working to streamline our website and make it highly mobile-friendly. The site will be a central hub for all R+evolution features, lessening the chances of technical issues and ensuring a smoother navigation experience as we continue to launch new and exciting features for our membership.
Exciting Features in the New Year:
We are thrilled to announce a slew of new features designed to push forward our grassroots efforts to confront industry challenges head-on. New features include:
