Hey Android users! Looks like a lot of you are using the swipe-to-save feature we recently added (fist pump), so we decided to make it even better! Now you can choose which collection you swipe to save to! Tap the Magic icon and try it - it’s weirdly satisfying.
We’re also working to make the Magic feed even more responsive and even more magical. So keep swiping and shoot us a note at firstname.lastname@example.org to tell us what you think! Real hardcore amazingness is in the works.

Hello! Good to see you again!
We have got a ton of great feedback about the Magic feed and the swipe-to-save interface. Sounds like you like it :) So we made it better! And added it to iPad!
Now *you* can make your Wanelo better with every product you save. When you swipe to save from the Magic feed, it’s like you’re talking to Wanelo and Wanelo listens (not in a creepy way). The more you use it, the better it gets! Soon it will get out of hand (in a good way).
What else? Store pages are starting to look more like profiles, as stores get hip to what’s going on here (have you been seeing all those Wanelo buttons out there?) And we’ve made the app faster to open and use. More soon. Email us your thoughts at email@example.com, and please feel free to leave more awesome and hilarious reviews! We love them. Maybe we’ll even get one embroidered.

Hi guys, TGIF! Oh and FYI, your Friday is about to get pretty awesome (maybe even more awesome than this).
You have all been asking for an easier way to organize your collections for quite some time. And guess what, we did it! It’s now possible online - aaand, we’re working on making it live on mobile too. How soon you ask? Soon. Like, way soon. :)
How it works is beyond simple - just go to your profile, click on the brand spankin’ new ORGANIZE button, and move things around to your heart’s content. Done and done!
Have a great weekend, ya’ll!

Basically, you’ve been asking, and we’ve been listening.
Beside the new magic feed in your life, we have something more magical happening. It’s like a unicorn is about to show up at your doorstep, so here goes it!
WANELO IS OPENING ITS FIRST MALL!!!!! (Yes, it’s an all caps required situation.)
We know right now you’re probably screaming, texting, tweeting, snapchatting, and ‘gramming this to all your people to spread the news: #wanelomall
So the deets:
We are opening our first mall later this year in Providence, Rhode Island. For realsies.
One of the biggest struggles in securing the first mall location was simply finding a property large enough to hold all the 12 million products you can find on Wanelo. After months of searching and scouring, we found an abandoned mall to transform into an IRL version of Wanelo. Um yea, it’s a dream come true.
The next tricky thing is figuring out how to make everything fit inside our new location. Probably with reallllly tall racks. We’ve been having a ridiculous amount of fun figuring it out still, especially finding all the catzz for our new mall.
Stay tuned for more! Because when we announce the Grand Opening date, we hope to offer massive Wanelo discounts and awesome raffle prizes to the first 1,500 people who wait in line overnight before our big day later this year. The first 500 lucky folks will get a lifetime’s worth of free Squishables, and you all know how Deena feels about Squishables!
Here’s a sneak peek of the early design of our mall!
Oh, and BTW, APRIL FOOLS!!!!!!
Sorry, this may have been too good to be true, but know that we love you forever and ever like Kate Moss and pizza slices.

Oh hello! We hope you’re having a good day out there, and we sincerely hope it’s about to get better thanks to this update!
It contains magic for iPhone and iPod users. Literally. Seriously. Check out the new Magic feed of interesting products cooked up just for you, based on the products you’ve been saving. It changes as you save new things, and as other people who save things similar to your things save things. You can view them one at a time if you want and swipe to save the good ones. It’s a powerful force and not something to be used while operating heavy machinery. If you use it while walking, don’t forget to look up!
We also made a slew of small improvements based on your feedback, and made profiles more screenshot-friendly.
Tell us what you think and what you would like, and if you appreciate what we’ve been doing, leave us a nice review! We read them all and share them. Someday we’ll publish a coffee table book of them.

As you’ve been browsing around some of your favorite stores’ websites, you may have noticed the Wanelo button floating around. It makes saving awesome items from your favorite sites to Wanelo even easier.
Here are just a few of the (many) sites where you can now find the Wanelo button:
If one of your favorite stores doesn’t have our button yet, never fear! Just email firstname.lastname@example.org or Tweet at @Wanelo to let us know which ones you think should add it next.

Hello there! Hope you’re feeling as good as we are today. It’s spring! Birds are chirping and stuff! And the Wanelo team is about to head to Tahoe for a little retreat / hackathon!
This update lets you manage your push notifications (you asked! We listened!) and makes My Feed (*your* feed) significantly more exciting. We also improved product sending and trimmed off some fat. This version will feel lighter, faster, stronger. Go ahead, kick the tires.
Tell us what you think and what else you’d like to see: email@example.com. We like to make things happen.

Jambo! We have one new, righteous little feature in this update.
Thursday February 13, 2014
Helloooo! It’s been raining here in California, and we need it! And you need this epic update. We’ve been using it for a while (weeks!) at Wanelo HQ and we’re excited to hand it off to you. Active ingredients:
We’ll suggest good searches for you as you type. Because typing is hard, and there are things to search for on here that you would have never, ever thought of without a hint or divine insight.
See the stores, people and products your friends are talking about in the new News section, under Alerts! This is where Stories live now and much commenting happens.
SPEAKING OF FRIENDS
Invite them in! We made it easy to. You can see who in your address book is on Wanelo already, and who isn’t yet.
All that + useful touches to product pages (follow the person who posted that product you like — you can’t miss ‘em) and tabs that stay with you as you scroll.
Love and spring water,

We have so much love, we’re spreading it everywhere we can. Check out our new iOS and Android updates. They’re filled with sweetness.
We gave the feed some tender loving care, and you can now see which stores you follow on your profile (finally!).
We also gave the feed in this version some tender loving care, and you can save a nice image of your favorite collection to your camera roll via the ‘Share’ button on the upper right. Send it to your sweetie in a text message as a not-so-subtle hint. Include some cryptic emoji.
Tell us what you think! We stay up late at night and read your emails: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Love and Sweethearts,

The greatest wishlist of all time? => your Wanelo. Send it to all the people; get what you want.
This special holiday edition of Wanelo puts your collections front and center on your profile! Check it out, and check out how everyone else has been organizing their corner of the shopping universe — it’s surprisingly fascinating.
We also brought category filters back to Trending (yay!), and you can select as many or as few as you like. YOU’RE IN CONTROL.
All that and a very surprised cat.
Happy shopping! Please use Wanelo responsibly this holiday season.
Love and snowcats,
Friday December 6, 2013
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas over here (seriously it’s freakishly cold in San Francisco and we hear there’s a chance of snow this weekend). And with Christmas comes gifts, and with gifts comes wishlists and with wishlists comes Wanelo!
This year, Santa won’t have to check his list twice, he can just go to Wanelo and see exactly what you want. But Santa doesn’t come for another few weeks and we’re too excited to wait so we’re giving you a chance to W! I! N! win, win, win $500 to put towards your Wanelo wishlist! What cheer!

You found an awesome product and you want to share it with the entire world of Wanelo! Yay! We can’t wait to see it. But where do you start?
There are a few ways to post products on Wanleo. Some of them are easier than others, but all of them are fun.
Wednesday November 27, 2013
You see, we believe the best way to spend Black Friday is on your couch, with Wanelo, and maybe a Christmas movie to get into the holiday spirit. Getting all your holiday shopping done is easy as pie, and if you have room, you can even eat pie while you’re Wanelo-ing.
