Welcome to the latest iteration of the hoopla app (hoopla 3.0), or as we've come to call it, LightSpeed!
This is a sneak peek of what's to come in a few short weeks. LightSpeed represents a major and significant app upgrade. It's something needing to be explored firsthand. Before LightSpeed's release, we will continue to show off some images that will help convey this upgrade before you and your patrons have access to it. Lightspeed covers both our mobile apps and hoopladigital.com.
Last week, we showed you the new hoopla Home Screen. This week, we wanted to show off the new Format Home Screens. These new, graphic driven marquee panels help users quickly discover and connect to featured artists, titles or collections. Part of these new Format Home Screens is the enhanced, high-resolution artwork and improved information that help users focus in on each of the over 275,000 titles now available on hoopla.
With a little help from technology, LightSpeed looks at genres users have borrowed from and suggests additional titles based on borrowing history in the new area marked Recommended. Our current collection New & Notable gets a bit of a change, and is now called Featured. These titles are cultivated by our marketing team, who have been charged with finding titles of user interest since the launch of hoopla. The last filter on the Format Home Screen is Popular. These are titles that are now listed as Top Titles, and are the best circulating titles across the hoopla service.
