Hello Jig Community! To celebrate Pi Day, we are having a 3.14-day party here on Jig. Here are the party-rameters:
For every 3.14th need posted on Jig, our very own Jig Fairy will be providing up to 3.14 answers within 3.14 days or less.
You may ask yourself: who or what is this Jig Fairy? Answer: the Jig Fairy is the pixie-like Jiggybot that will shower delightful suggestions on select needs posted on Jig, starting today!
Don’t be thrown off by its gossamer wings and delicate tutu – the Jig Fairy’s pixelated fairy-wand has the power to answer many permutations of needs.

I’m pleased to announce that version 0.9 of our Jig App is now live in the App Store. We’re still working on it, but as it stands it’s pretty useful, so we thought we’d get it into the hands of our users as quickly as possible.
It’s really our first attempt at bringing Jig to the mobile format, so it’s very much a work in progress. Don’t let that scare you off, as those of us using the iPhone app find it to be a great way to keep up on stuff on Jig.
Please check out our app- you can install the iPhone app from the iTunes store.
Note: if you initially signed up with Facebook, you will need to set a password on your Jig account. You can learn more on our iPhone page.
As promised, we’ve added another sharing option to Jig, so you can now post your new need to Facebook in addition to Twitter. It works exactly the same way, and all you have to do is check the “Facebook” box when posting a new need. If you haven’t connected to Facebook, you can do so from your settings page.
Today you can share your needs on Twitter when you post a new need. It’s super simple- just check off the “Twitter” box and we’ll automatically share your need with your Twitter followers. If you don’t see the checkbox, you can connect to your Twitter account from your settings page. This is just the beginning- we’ll add other options for sharing in the near future.
If you use Twitter, you can now connect your Jig account to your Twitter account. This will automatically connect you with the people you follow on Twitter in Jig. Just go to your settings page and click “Connect with Twitter”. You’ll also be able to use your Twitter profile picture in Jig, and while we’re on the subject of profile pictures, we’ve also added the ability to upload a custom picture.
