Big update: new features for your Bounds' media

We now offer two new ways for you to use uploaded media more individually: an image editing feature and a native audio player.

Editing images

Do you want your images to be larger or smaller? Or maybe not left aligned? All this and much more can now be done easily with our improved settings. Simply insert your desired image from your media library into the Creator. Now just click on the cog in the Bound preview and you have a whole range of new possibilities at your disposal.

Choose section:
If you only want a certain section of your image to appear in the element, you can easily select your image section here.

Replace:
If you click on Replace you will end up in your media library. This makes exchanging pictures even easier.

Width:
Choose how wide you want your image to be. Simply drag the slider from left to right and the width of your image will change accordingly.

Alignment:
Choose between four options where you would like to place your picture should in the element. Do you want it to be the centerpiece or should it be on the right side?

Text flow:
Do you want your text to scroll next to your image? Then activate this option.

Zoom:
Do you know the little magnifying glass in the pictures? It appears on the image once you see the item in the app. If you don't want the magnifying glass to appear, you can easily hide it here. You need a license to use this feature.


Native audio player

Until now, inserted audio files appeared only as a simple play button in the app. In addition, the file broke off when the standby mode of the device was (involuntarily) activated.

Our new native audio player gives licensed creators and their players more options. A cog appears to the right of your file in the Bound preview. By clicking this icon, you can switch on the native audio player.

Important: You must switch on the native audio player individually for each inserted audio file!

The audio file will now appear in a new design for your players and contain more possibilities:

  • no cancelling playback in standby mode
  • pausing, resuming and browsing through the file are now possible
  • the playback speed can be adjusted (Creator & App)

The bottom line is: more comfort for everyone! Plus a little gimmick for audio puzzles when the playback speed has to be adjusted first to understand everything.

New Actionbound feature: The cloze is here!

We are happy to announce that we have a new answer mode for the quiz in the Bound Creator: the Cloze!

Again and again we receive messages from the community with wishes and suggestions for Actionbound . We are happy to announce that another new feature has made it into the Creator!

From now on you can ask cloze quiz questions. The feature can be found in the "Quiz" element under the different answer modes. You can create as many gaps as you want. Also here you can give partial points for not completely correctly solved questions via "Locker score".

How to create your cloze task:

In your Bound Creator you will find the cloze in the Quiz element at the very bottom when you select the answer mode.

You can easily mark your gaps in your text element with curly brackets. Be careful not to put a space after the brackets, otherwise this will be part of the correct answer.

Tip: For long texts, you can specify the missing words in the task.

Have fun trying it out and we are looking forward to your feedback! Send us your cloze tasks via Instagram or Facebook! We are always happy about links.

Merge Bounds in Actionbound

We just released a new feature which allows you to combine two or more Bounds into one new Bound.

The feature merge Bounds allowes you to copy the content of your existing Bounds into a new one.

The following video shows you how simple it is to merge two Bounds.

The merge function is part of our license feature set. If you want to unlock this feature for your Bounds, check here for a suitable license. If you can't find the right product for you, feel free to contact Benedikt Heiß.
