Introducing: the all-new DriveTribe app

Now with added categories!

2y ago

Hi everyone,

I'm really excited to announce the launch of the new version of the DriveTribe app. It's been a little time coming, but we're all really happy with it, and hope you like it too!

So, what's new?

Well, the first thing you'll notice is we've changed the Home screen, which is now called Discover.

On this tab, you'll be able to swipe between DT Picks and a host of new category pages. These help give more exposure to the best posts and Tribes in the most exciting topics on DriveTribe, from News to Classics to Spotting. We'll be improving these over time to try to highlight great content creators too.

We know one size doesn't fit everyone when it comes to motoring, so we also let you customise the order of the categories, and which ones are shown. If you swipe all the way to the right (to the 'More' tab), you'll be able to go into Edit mode, which let's you toggle each category on/off, and to re-order them to get them just right.

Okay, that's kinda cool. What else?

We've moved My Feed into our primary navigation.

My Feed is the heart of DriveTribe. It's where you see the best from Tribes you've joined and people you follow. We were seeing people struggle to find it in the previous app version, and so we've made it far more prominent.

We're going to be looking at ways to improve 'My Feed' next. We want to make it more interesting, more fun and a bit more social. Hopefully that's something to look forward to, but beyond that, if you want to be involved please let me know via DM - we're always looking for new ideas and feedback on our designs!

This means we've had to move Roast my Ride, which can now be accessed through a button on your profile.

Great. So how do I get this new app?

Easy peasy. Just follow the link to your app store!



I love it/I hate it/I'm lonely and want someone to talk to

    • For some reason the reply didn't stick.

      The only thing I would add to the app is a "dark theme" option. Sure would help me to stay more in the app if it wasn't so white all the time.

  • Are you masquerading as James May at the weekends?

    • I was hoping it may make people react more positively! Who can hate a design with James' face on it? 😄
