Your New Dailies
Hey Recolorists! We have a fairly big change coming up, and we wanted to explain it to you before it goes live.
Every day we publish three new pictures – we call them the dailies – which are free for all our users. And we will keep having three free dailies: don’t panic! It’s just that the way they work will be a little different.
As of the next update, each daily picture will only be free until the next daily is published. The dailies are published at 8am, 12pm, and 6pm in your local timezone, so from now on, the first daily, which comes at 8am, will be free for everyone until 12pm. At 12pm, it will become locked, and the 12pm daily will appear and remain free until 6pm. The 6pm daily will be free until the next day’s 8am picture arrives.
You’ll always be able to see which picture is currently unlocked, because it will be marked with the word ‘free’ in green text.
As as long as you open a picture while it’s free, you get to keep it forever. (You don’t even need to add color to it – just open it while it’s unlocked, and it’s yours for good!) So as long as you check into the app three times a day, you will still have access to all three dailies, and you will be able to keep them and re-color them as many times as you like.
If you’re worried about missing a daily, please make sure you have the notifications for new pictures switched on in your app – and that you have given Recolor permission to send you notifications in your device settings.
To switch on notifications for new pictures, please follow these steps;
iOS: If you do not already have push notifications switched on, you can do so by selecting ‘notify me’ in the new countdown banner that will be visible after the update. Pressing the button will trigger the iOS pop-up asking you to allow/don’t allow push notifications. No matter which you select, you will still be able to edit permissions for notifications through the app settings – so don’t panic if you click ‘don’t allow’ by mistake! As of the next update, new iOS users will always see the ‘notify me’ version of the countdown banner until they decide on their notification settings.
Android: Open the Recolor app and go to your profile/My Works page. Then go to settings by clicking the gear-shaped icon in the top left of your My Works page. Scroll down the settings page until you see Notifications, and switch the tab on. Next, go into your device settings, and find Notifications. You should see a list of all the apps on your device; scroll down until you find Recolor. When you tap on Recolor, make sure the ‘Allow Notifications’ setting is on.
And you should be all set! Now you should get a notification to your device whenever a new Recolor picture becomes available :) If you have any more questions, please don’t hesitate to contact our customer support, who will be happy to help you out.
