In today's post, we describe HeroMode's product roadmap for the upcoming v6.
Summary

HeroMode is one year old! Within the last year, we've added numerous features and improvements to make HeroMode truly motivating. Now, for the upcoming v6, our primary focus is optimization. In terms of app performance, we've compiled a long list of codebase improvements to speed up response times. We are expecting to revamp nearly the entire codebase. Additionally, we are continuously improving the app layout, such as the Adventures List screen, to make it more visually appealing and informative. Stay tuned for the phased rollout of HeroMode v6, where optimization and an enhanced user experience take center stage!
