Our team had fabulous spring holidays! It was nice to take some time out to relax. Last week we've been so much focused on turning out bug fixes and preparing market entry strategy that we really needed a break. One part of our team chose to go to inspiring Provence to discover true French joie de vivre. The other expedition decided for more active holidays. Rock climbing in Paklenica, Croatia was a big challenge.

But we weren't just wondering around with nothing to do. We all decided to join pleasure and work by testing Fylet in real life scenarios. That decision turned out to be the perfect way to polish Fylet’s user experience.

Charming Provence, gorgeous Paklenica

The opportunities for taking beautiful photos were endless, I don't even have to say that. What else is travelling through Provence other than enjoying in beautiful landscapes, admiring vibrant colors that enchanted so many painters, and being seduced by intense aromas and flavors. Blooming trees in Grasse, cobbled lanes in Saint-Paul-de-Vence, house facades in traditional colors everywhere, spirit of Cezanne, Renoir and other famous artists, wild horses of Camargue, ancient Arles, adorable marketplaces, delicious food and wine. Charming! 

Or climbing high on the rocks of Paklenica National Park which spreads over a coastal slope of the southern Velebit Mountain Range. When you wake up in a camp near the sea you can feel salt in the air. Just a minute latter you can already climb on a big wall of Anića Kuk. Your climbing partner who has your life on the rope is the only one you can trust. But imagine the feeling of freedom when you are in the middle of the wall in that amazing spot of nature. Gorgeous!

Smooth transfer...

So, you can imagine that our smartphones were overloaded with tons of photographs day after day. That could be a really big trouble, but not for us. Luckily Fylet was with us and it was taking care of our precious memories. Fylet was automatically sending all the photos we snapped to computers of our colleagues and family. And they were really amazed. “It was just like we were there with you”, they said. It is really nice to hear something like that, but all the things didn’t go so smooth. 

...and some troubles too

While we were eating our own dog food we must admit we had some troubles. Wi-Fi in some provencal hotels was so poor that we lost internet connection every 30 seconds. Arrrrgh! Of course nothing can work with that kind of network. And as the Fylet user I was not getting enough information what is going on. So, we’ll definitely add more informative notifications for the user.

Next interesting thing was that info screen was by far most opened page in the smart phone application. Probably that should be home screen for Fylet mobile app.

And the climbing expedition? There was a moment when they felt really, really lucky that they decided to test Fylet in Paklenica. Our developer Petra had her mobile in a pocket when she climbed high on the wall... and suddenly... her mobile felt down into the deep canyon! The phone was lost, but photos she snapped were not. In the morning when she was still in the camp she used Fylet and send all the pictures to her home computer.

Anyway,Fylet was really handy.

We hope it comes in handy during your next holiday too!

Your Fylet team
