Creating a post
Posting is the main purpose of Chyll, so you will notice that we took a great deal of time perfecting Chyll's status builder. First, let's go over how you display the status builder panel: click on the floating action button in the bottom right of the screen. This button displays on your profile and content panels. After you tap that button, the status builder will display. You will notice a large box at the top of the panel with a number 140 under it. This is where you will type your status. As you type, you will see the number below decreasing with each keystroke. This is the number of characters you have left in your post. Chyll statuses are only 140 characters long, so make good use of them!
Below the text area is where you can set your location. This box should already have your location in it, but if you want to change it or remove it, go right ahead. Your location will show up under your username in your post and on your profile panel. It is a good idea to leave your location set to what it was when you opened the status builder panel so that your post will reflect what you're actually doing and where you are doing it at.
Below the location box is where you will choose media to include in your post, if you're feeling up to it! You can choose an image from your device, take a picture, or pick a GIF animation from Chyll's built-in GIF keyboard. Images are a great way to enhance your status and make it more appealing to other users!
Finally, at the bottom of the screen you will find a scroll bar that reads "Tap or drag to update status", this will not submit your post. What this bar is meant for is to change your Chyll Status. You can choose unable to hang, ready to chill, or already chilling. Basically, this tells other users what your availability is. When you are unavailable a yellow ring will appear around your emoji on your post. Likewise, a green ring will appear when you are ready to chill, and a purple ring for already chilling.
