Its been about two weeks since the beta test began. Here are some recent updates and fixes, based on feedback from beta testers. Thank you for all who participated. Please continue to give feedback and invite your friends to use Headmagnet.

  1. More friendly nav bar: Added help text below the main links in the navigation bar so that new users can more easily see what's what
  2. Lists for everyone!: New users now get three starting study lists (Vocabulary, Birthdays/Anniversaries, and Favorite Quotes) created for them automatically. If you are an existing user and would like to get these lists, please just send a message.
  3. Darker text: Some of the gray text is now a darker shade of gray so that everyone can see them more easily.
  4. Additional preferences: The settings tab has been split into 3 tabs to allow the following new preferences to be added:
    • Show/hide descriptions for lists and modes: On the My Lists and My Head page, sometimes all those descriptions for lists and modes can get a little overwhelming. This preference allows you to toggle whether you want to see them. You can set this either from the Settings page under the Preferences tab, or through the checkboxes near the bottom of the My Lists and My Head pages. This is set to show descriptions as a default.
    • Automatically add new modes to My Head: If this setting is checked, then any new modes you create will be added to your head (My Head page). This is now set to add new modes to your head by default.
  5. Safer field deletion: The "Delete Field" link which appears when you are editing a list's items will now show a confirmation before actually deleting a field, so that it is harder to accidentally click on that link and wipe out a field.
  6. Convenience buttons on welcome page: Added 3 convenience buttons to the home page which shows up after you log in:
    • Add a new study list: allows you to instantly add a new study list
    • Learn new head items: allows you to study any new items for lists that you have added to your head
    • Review weak head items: allows you to review any weak previously items for lists that you have in your head
  7. Popular study lists: The list of recent study lists on the home or welcome page is now based on how many people have added the list to their head. Lists that qualify have at least a few items, and have not been edited for at least 15 minutes (so that people don't rush to your list while you are still in the process of editing it).
  8. Bug fix: The "Study" button on the My Head page now works right. Previously, it would just start a study session for the lists that someone else selected, rather than the lists you selected.

We've got many more updates coming soon.
