Why is this release named The Mars Volta?
The word Volta in the band name, Mars Volta, was taken from a Fellini book about his films. He called the changing over of a scene, the Volta. Changing of time is exactly what this release is all about. The growth, evolution, and turning of the corner with many updates to the user experience and face of our application.
To begin with, you will notice our new dashboard. A single-view look at what is going on in your StoryPorts account. Also, to enrich the user experience, we’ve simplified clickstreams and work flows. Plus, your account is simpler to navigate with more intuitive processes built into the platform. To top off the release, we’ve added theme libraries and a beta program for our new Interactive Email modules and Countdown Clock. Finally, let’s not forget the cosmic tie-in this summer!
