The start of the year has been all about ironing out pesky bugs 🐜 and taking care of under the bonnet stuff that you’d probably never notice 👀 until we pointed it out. Which means it’s been a while since our last noticeable update to the huggg app.
HOWEVER! The time has come for one of our biggest releases yet – and we’re here to guide you through the latest newness at huggg.
Here’s what’s fresh for February 👉
Yep, you heard it here first. We’ve added a brand new home screen to huggg, making it easier than ever before to search for what you want! We’ve also introduced some message cards so we can let you know of any hidden price drops and important updates!
Okay, so this one isn’t entirely new, but it’s so good we’re still shouting about it.
Since December 2018, when you download the huggg app, you get five golden hugggs to send completely free. In this release, we’ve added some reminders so you don’t miss the 36-hour expiry. Find out more about golden hugggs here.
We know that sometimes it’s not easy to figure out what you’d like to send the one you love, like (or need to say sorry to). So, we’ve selected which hugggs we think are appropriate for each type of occasion. As more hugggable products get added to the map, we’ll expand our occasion selection. Tell us why you’re sending hugggs and we’ll make improvements accordingly.
We’ve got all kinds of hugggs available at the moment. From coffee and cake to cocktails and cinema tickets, there are lots of categories to choose from. As we grow and introduce more partners to the app, we’ll be expanding our product categories. If there’s a particular type of huggg you’d like to send – think flowers, pizza or burritos – let us know and we’ll do our best!
While we’re heads down, making sure sending hugggs feels as fun as can be, you lot are out finding the latest cool spots and hip hangouts. If you can’t find what you’re looking for on the map, head into your favourite coffee shop and tell them about us. If they mention you on signup, you get 10 FREE COFFEES! Don’t believe us? Find out how it works.
We’re proud of our partners and are adding more and more locations to the map every single day. Check out the map in the app or head here to find a list of our independent coffee locations.
Again, a (sort of) oldie but a goodie. Since the start of the year, you’ve been able to share hugggs outside the app – think Facebook, Whatsapp or email. All you need to do is head to the huggg app to generate a huggg, then copy and paste the URL into your messaging platform of choice. More flexibility? Don’t we know it.
