Wanted to bring you up to speed on 3 things.
Read this section if you're having serious Crashing Issues or Your Thumbnails went missing:
- We've received several e-mails from users who were experiencing serious crashing issues. And a couple of others reported that even though their seconds were all intact on each date, the thumbnails on the calendar had disappeared. We've been working with them to figure this all out and it seems that these are both connected. And they are isolated to users who downloaded the very first version of the App when it first released.
We've been having success with our fix so far, but we could use several more users to help us out testing the new build of the App before we send it to Apple for approval.
If you're experiencing these issues, please message me directly through here on Kickstarter with a brief description of which issue it is and the best e-mail address to reach you with a test invite. Ideally the one you open through your iPhone.
We're only allowed a limited number of testers through Apple unfortunately, so I can't promise that I'll be able to reach everyone.
The champs at TouchLab here in NYC are almost done! I've been Beta Testing it for a couple of weeks and so far so good!
There's still a lot of finishing touches and testing to do, but the App totally works great right now on my Nexus 4 aside from some features that are still a work in progress.
As with the iPhone version, the App will be able to see any videos already on your phone, so there's no need to wait for it. Start recording every day! Select your seconds when the App is complete.
I can't give you a date yet (I wish I could), but I promise it'll be as soon as possible.
Starting on the very last second of my original 1 Second Everyday - Age 30 video... I started keeping the video I shot every day for my second of the day, on my camera roll on my iPhone. At the time I wasn't even remotely close to getting an iPhone App off the ground. But I knew that was my plan. My post "year off" mission was to build an App for 1SE. No clue how, but I was determined. So I kept all those videos on my phone so that someday... if I somehow managed to actually build an App, I could make my Age 31 video entirely on my own App. The ultimate test that the App does what it was intended to do. To make it possible for anyone to do the 1 Second Everyday project for themselves.
When I shot that demo of the App that shows the App in action, I shot it on my own iPhone 4S. While I was actually selecting my actual seconds of that day. I've made few changes since then. And my transition to an iPhone 5 when it came out was seamless.
After nervously putting it off for several weeks, last month I decided it was time to Mash my seconds. After 5 minutes of Mashing, voila! Another year of my life viewable to relive in 6 minutes. Amazing considering it takes 1 hour of rendering in Final Cut Pro to compile it. Editing 365 HD videos together on a "phone". We live in the future.
So yea at the end of April I finally posted the video on Vimeo... if you're interested, here it is:
The description includes some extra details. Including a Thank you to you all!
As soon as we get the new update out & finish up Android, I'll be concentrating on fulfilling the rest of the rewards. Thank you as always for your patience and I look forward to continuing to improve 1SE for everyone!
