Well, tomorrow I fly to LA to promote the App at CTN. I know all the artists and students there will be very interested in the work we created, and by "we" that includes you!
When I return I will get on finishing up the desktop and Android versions. But most importantly I will get to the task of fulfilling the remaining gifts to you amazing supporters. Also there were some postal problems with the posters, so I will resend out posters to those who did not receive them yet.
Thank you again for all your support in creating this amazing new learning tool.
I'm sorry for the long delay in updates. Well, that pesky computer machine is playing rough :) It is a little more time consuming than imagined to get the Mac version up and running. I want to have the same interactive experience on the desktop that we do with the iPad and iPhone. My programmer is working on some pesky interface bugs that are causing the delay. My hope was to have it live for CTN this year, but it looks like I wont make that dead line. SO I may put out a more standard desktop interface version first. All this is delaying the Android version, but I am still pushing to get them both out by the end of the year.
On a better note, I want you all to know that everyone who has purchased the app loves it (well there was one guy who didn't but there is always one, right?). You helped create a really good tool for artists. But I still have more work to do, I will press on!
Sorry for the delay. We are working hard to get the Mac desktop version out by CTN animation Expo (where I will have a booth). Then on to Android right after. This always seems to take much longer than expected but we are pushing onward! Stay tuned and visit me at CTN if you are in LA.
thanks so much for your support!
