Share Your Profile On Other Networks

One of the best ways to bring your friends and followers over to Cyber Dust is to share your profile. With the new update for iOS, it is easier than ever to share your profile with friends and contacts on other networks. To use this feature, tap the red “more” button located at the bottom right corner of the Cyber Dust home screen. At the top of the screen, you will see your profile picture, bio, website, and share profile tools.

Clicking the Twitter button will launch a Tweet box populated with your profile image and a Cyber Dust invitation message. You can edit the message to anything within the 140 character limit.

Blast Privacy Update

Blasts are an important part of Cyber Dust, and we listened to user feedback regarding Blast previews. With the new update, users can turn off Blast previews. Additionally, non-public Blasts no longer show previews.

To turn off Blast previews, tap the “more” button on the bottom right corner of the Cyber Dust home screen. Turn the “Blast Preview” button off to hide Blast previews.

Additionally, non-public Blasts (Blasts that cannot be reblasted) no longer show previews. Below, you will see that “Popular” sent a non-public Blast, so you only see what type of Blast you received. Below, Omar sent a public Blast, resulting in a Blast preview.

We know that our users like sleek design, so we redesigned Swipe View in the latest update to make responding and interacting with Blast messages easier than ever. Check out a preview below.
