The Briar Archive App
Hello! I just wanted to start a new thread regarding the new official app for Ackerly Green and The Briar Archive. Over the next six months or so I’m going to be shifting the “branding” of this site to be more immersive and magical, calling it The Briar Archive, which is the name of the liminal lost library in The Briar Society and the collective name of the Briarverse book series.
And that rebranding starts today, at least for Android users! The Android Briar Archive app is officially live! With it, you can read, post, and share on the community forum, and finally receive immediate mobile notifications to alert you of relevant activity, both in the community and within the narrative!
Over the next few months I’ll be adding and customizing the app with more areas and secrets, but the live version is a perfect portal to the community with notifications (you can customize) to keep you connected!
We had one hiccup with the iOS version but I’ve made the necessary changes and resubmitted this morning so ?? it should only be a couple days until Apple users can download the app as well!
NOTE: BuddyBoss, our new forum platform, doesn’t come with like “hearts” out of the box so I had someone develop the current system, but because it’s a 3rd party customization the “like” feature isn’t currently available on the app. But BuddyBoss is working on adding likes/upvotes/reactions to the app version and I’ll push an update as soon as they do!
Also, I activated gifs for the forum, so to commemorate the new app launch:
