Video and audio previews now up to 70% faster on major modern web browsers

19 February, 2019

In November last year, we announced that the latest versions of the Digital Pigeon desktop app are capable of generating previews for video and audio files roughly 70% faster than previously, thanks to the addition of codecs to play H264 and AAC-based content (often wrapped up in the MP4 container).

Blue badge notifications make activity tracking even easier

29 June, 2017

Do you find you lose track of what’s happening with your files? Who’s provided feedback? Who’s previewed what? In today’s world – there’s so much multi-tasking going on… it’s bound to happen!

To help, we’ve added blue notification badges to the Digital Pigeon interface. They keep count of files downloaded, files received, and comments added since you last viewed them.

We love chatting to our customers about how they use Digital Pigeon and everyone’s use is a little bit different. Big Mouth Media, an eLearning narration company is no exception.

Use Google Drive for File Storage? We’ve got an integration for that now!

14 June, 2017

For those of you have been using Digital Pigeon for a while now, you will have noticed we are nicely integrated with Dropbox.

The way we see it, Dropbox is great for file storage (particularly for our types of clients who have huge amounts of data!) but it’s “light on” when it comes to file sharing, feedback, your own custom branding, etc.

Create, rename and reorganise files and folders for easier file asset management

9 June, 2017

We’ve recently made a few updates to Digital Pigeon that should make your life a little easier. After all, this new feature is one of the most requested features we’ve had in the last little while! You can now create a new folder or rename files and folders from directly within an upload. This means you can modify folders from the dashboard, rather than separately on your computer. It also eliminates the need to re-upload all your files and resend the link.
