The new iOS app brings a new design and improved functionalities to the table. One of the biggest design improvements is the Content screen, from which users can quickly access their favorite channels through the so-called “Channel Previews”.
A. What is a Channel Preview?
Channel Previews are thumbnails of channels and offer users visually attractive shortcuts to channels while simultaneously boosting user engagement. They are generated automatically by Showpad, but admins can modify their design. Refer to the "Related Articles" section at the bottom of the article for more information.
B. Which Channel Previews are displayed?
The Channel Previews that are displayed on the Content page represent the channels that are ranked at the top of the “View all” channels list. Users can reorder the channels in this list to change which Channel Previews are displayed. The maximum number of displayed Channel Previews depends on the device and its orientation:
- Portrait Mode: max 4
- Landscape Mode: max 6
- Portrait Mode: max 6
- Landscape Mode: max 8
