You may have noticed that your Boonex Account dashboard now has a fancy new "Loyalty Reward" progress bar that shows percentage or, if you're lucky, says "Congrats!". That is the new system which we added in order to say "Thank You!" for the money you pay us. :) The reward is always a free Permanent License. Once you reach 100%, you can
This week we came up with a relatively small site update, mostly catering for the introduction of the new Chat+. Some details have been added to the Features page and the Pricing page has been re-designed. Notably, the price of Premium+ subscriptions went up from $89 to $99 per month, but all existing subscribers will keep paying the old price. Another small
Boonex added subscriptions for licenses and license+hosting plans a few months ago. Already subscriptions make up more than half of our business and growing. Our own impression so far is quite simple - subscriptions are better for us and for clients. First, initial spent is never too high, and people that are "just trying" can either just for a free
The 2015 was turbulent, but very productive. We released DolphinPro 7.2, introduced subscriptions with hosting, significantly improved customer support, finally "birthed" the first full Trident package, updated Boonex, moved repos to GitHub, launched Dolphin Connect, became PayPal Partners and progressed with DolphinPro 7.3 development enough to feel confident about delivering it on time (1st of March 2016 or earlier). Great, challenging,
We have just finished setting up SSL encryption and authentication for Boonex.com site-wide. This means that all your sensitive data transmitted via Boonex.com is protected and will only be seen by those who you mean to show it to. Since a lot of web-masters share site access details, use internal messages, make payments and fill-in potentially private information in their
We are officially a PayPal Partner now (for PayPal North America Partnership program). What it means for DolphinPro users is that we will now have better and more tools to improve PayPal products in Dolphin, track any issues and fine-tune Dolphin to make PayPal work seamlessly. In further updates we plan to focus more on e-commerce and payment aspects of DolphinPro.
Just a few weeks ago we launched the Mission: Diligent Support, with the goal to improve our communication with customers, offer options for dedicated support and improve overall experience for non-technical users. Since that post we have made some changes in direction - got rid of Zopim chat and Groove CRM, but switched to Intercom system to do both. We've also
Dolphin.Pro is awesome! It’s getting better and better. And still, very often people have troubles with installation, setup, settings, hosting, etc. Some need dedicated support. Some just need a good hosting to start with. Some want to try running a licensed site for while without paying a full license fee. Dolphin.Pro is very powerful. Its power unfolds more and more when
As planned, we have now upgraded all old licenses to "Dolphin.Pro License" for all accounts. Prime holders received 2 licenses per Prime package, and all Permanent licenses have been upgraded one-to-one. Mobile licenses are also converted to full Dolphin.Pro licenses. Every Dolphin.Pro license allows branding-free use of Dolphin.Pro on one domain. Dolphin Mobile Apps will connect to registered sites only, so
Dolphin.Pro development is moved to GitHub Dolphin.Pro Code is where the code now lives. Developers are encouraged to fork the repository and then use that as your own centralised repository. From there you can send "pull requests" to the Boonex Dolphin.Pro project with your changes and then we can review them before deciding whether to include them in to the main code-base.
Cleaner and leaner Boonex.com is going live! The site is updated with refreshed look, Dolphin.Pro 7.2 materials, memberships information and new licensing terms. There are a few more changes coming over the next few days, so please don't mind the slightly wacky Market and Trac. They'll look great soon! License Pricing
In preparation for the upcoming changes and planned Knowledge Base overhaul we have restructured Boonex Forums. Some categories have been moved to Archive, and some have been merged with new ones. General idea is to step away from software versions or types (web, mobile, desktop, trident, etc.). Forums are now focused on users intention. Those who come to learn the basics go
In just one week Boonex will turn 15. Perfect milestone to introduce some serious changes. In this post I will briefly outline what is planned for the month of September. More details posts will follow.
While Dolphin Pro 7.2 work is being finalised, we decided to focus on our support system. We are a small team working with lots of clients, but we believe that there are things that can be improved anyway. Sometimes we miss important requests or fail to reply in time. Documentation is getting outdated and somewhat disorganised. A lot of clients
Facebook is 11, Twitter is 9, BoonEx is 14. In human years that means that online social networking is already mature, sophisticated and proven. It is here to stay. People get it and like it (no pun intended).
Dolphin 7.1.5 (Final) is released and is available for download. This is a security update. We strongly recommend all Dolphin-powered sites to upgrade to 7.1.5 immediately.
Why? Our prime purpose in this life is to help others. And if you can't help them, at least don't hurt them. (Dalai Lama)
It's that crazy time of the year again! Deepest discounts happen this Friday and eager shoppers storm participating stores. Apparently, at least in US it can actually be dangerous to shop during back Friday. Online shopping, however, is as safe as it gets and we are happy to bring forward our once-a-year offer...
Dolphin PRO (aka Dolphin 7, aka Dolphin Classic) licenses are going to change starting from the next version update.

Two weeks of Dolphin 8 Private Preview passed and the feedback from the first group of testers has been absolutely invaluable! We have made quite a few improvements, changes and reassessments. Perhaps the most notable one is that Dolphin 7 and Dolphin 8 will now be separated into two different products - Dolphin Classic (current D7) and Dolphin U (current D8).
