Join Justin Seeley for an in-depth discussion in this video Exploring the Behance mobile interface, part of Up and Running with Behance.
Downloading the Behance mobile application is really simple. On the iOS App Store for instance, just type out Behance in the search box, and you should be taken to this page, once you find it. And you can just tap on Download. You may be prompted for your Apple ID and Apple password in order to download this application. But once it is downloaded, you can then launch it. And you can actually enjoy most of the full features of Behance directly from your mobile device. To open the app just tap on open and that's going to take you over to the Behance mobile application. You can go through these screens which give you a better idea of some of the features of Behance.
Or you can actually just tap skip in the bottom right hand corner. When you tap on skip it takes you to your activity feed. Where at the bottom left hand corner you can sign up for a free account. Or in the bottom right, you can tap that and log in. So in this case, I can log in using my normal user name and password for Behance. Once I've typed in my username and password it's going to log in and take me to my news feed. Where I can then scroll through all of the recent activity that's been going on by the people that I follow. At the bottom of the application, I have an area where I can explore.
And I can sort these by different things: creative fields, whether or not it's featured, most appreciated, most viewed. Worldwide, I can filter out by location. And then I can also from this section add a new project or add a new work in progress directly from my phone. I can also go to this section and I can browse Curated Galleries. Where I can view them based on Organizations, Served Sites and anyone that I'm following. Finally, at the bottom right, we have our Profile section.
And this is my personal profile where I can see exactly what's going on with me. I can see my projects, my works in progress, and any collections that I've developed while I've been working on the Behance website. I can also tap more info to get more information about me or any user for that matter when I view their profile. And I can edit my profile by tapping the big blue button that says Edit Profile. Up at the top where it says me, I can tap on that and I can switch between me, my statistics, my connections, and also my account settings. I also have a little bell right here next to the search icon which will show me any notifications that I have.
Once I tap that again, it closes up. To expand the search, just tap the little search icon and you can search Behance directly from here as well. In addition to browsing the mobile version of Behance you can also do many of the things that you can do on the regular website as well. And we'll cover those in the next few movies.
