What's new at GoodBarber? December 2017
This month we focused on your app's central point: the Modular Home.
With the goals of widening your range of options and allowing you to create the perfect home screen for your app always in mind, we worked on 3 new widgets that will open the doors in terms of engagement, user experience, and design. 

The Newsletter Widget

This widget allows your users to let you know they want to sign up for your newsletter. They just need to enter their email address in the dedicated field, and on your side, you just have to transfer the list of interested users to the platform you manage your newsletter from. 

The Search Widget (PWA)

If you want your Progressive Web App to be even more intuitive, this new release will be of interest to you, as it allows you to give your users the option to perform searches within your content in just one click. The search is done directly from your app's Home–in other words, upon entering into the application. 

The Separator Widget (PWA)

Here we're getting into the design side, with this module that allows you to integrate separators between different widgets into your Home, giving you a multitude of possibilities in terms of the architecture of your PWA's home.
