Update up to date

  Owely desktop clients goes 1.1 not much for new functionality more for fixes, this one is more stable version with fixed Upload Dialog issues and some login troubles our users experienced before. About new cool features, there is build-in autoupdating mechanism, so users that will download this version will be automatically updated and won't need to make it manually like before. We hope there won't be much issues with that (cross the fingers).
  Also, our developers have added one of most desired feature : fast upload, which means that you won't enter no text on Upload window, just want to upload immediately. So now you have Shift + Esc combination , it will automatically upload you screen to the public group and give you link.
  Please let us know about issues and function you have or might want to have in desktop application, this all makes Owely better each update and feel you more comfortable taking part of improving software.

Hi everyone,
during today we've experienced unexpected user activity, more than 2500 of new users that was actively registering and using Owely. Because of that we had server crashes and more unwanted issues, such as missing mails. Right now we use Google Mail and it apparently had some troubles, so our account was suspended because of abnormal amount of emails sent today including our support emails. We really sorry about this inconvenience and all registrants don't need activation. Please login without hesitation,  contacting support only if some other things will appear.

Thank you!

Owely goes Premium

  Today is big day for all Owely crew, we are moving toward new features. Because this takes a lot of hard work and support our service now have two membership : Free and Premium. None of old features are going away, everybody who registered have Free membership automatically and thats only adds some screenshot storage limitation of 50Mb wich is 100+ screenshots, that pretty much for average use. If you exceed this limitation don't worry, none of your data will be removed, everything remains. You just need to  remove some old screenshots, so you will have more space to put new ones.
  So what are new cool features we present: 1Gb of storage, Groups of privacy and no ads. One of feature we was asked the most was limiting access to your screen shot for some group of people, that what is groups about. You create your group and add your co-workers of family members, so your sensitive information can be kept safely. Let us know what you desire to see in Premium account and we will add it. And it's like $12 a year and you still have ability to refund your order in 30 days, if you won't like it, so give a shot.

  That's not all, we are preparing big update of the Owely desktop application, that will better suits new requirements and we need some time for that. But there is chance that this week we will get new version with automatically updating function, so no need of downloading new version every time.

P.S. there are still some issues with groups logic in old application, this stuff will be fixed with new update. Stay tuned.

PreChristmas upgrade

  This is beautiful saturday morning, snow is falling outside the window and our team moved to new server. During migration we found 2 broken screenshots that couldn't be moved, sorry if that was something important.
  Still, migration was successful and site is stable right now, but there can be some delays in page load or other stuff we will try to fix during next week when there will be more load on the server. Thank you for your patience. Please send feedback if you will find some bugs or troubles you didn't had before.
