iPhone 4S - Quick Note

Hi All,

We're anxiously awaiting our new iPhone tomorrow. We will report on compatibility once we have one in-hand. There's a pretty good chance that the GoPano micro optic will work as-is.

For those of you who get your iPhone 4S: Please note that the GoPano 0.9 app will not show recording controls on the new phone just yet. This is because we were testing specifically for iPhone 4 models to enable the recorder, not because there is any known compatibility issue. The GoPano 1.0 app will enable recording with the 4S and will be available in the App Store once it passes through Apple's approval process.

      Understandable. Thanks for the response.

      Todd: Everyone's optic has shipped now, unless you didn't provide an address or you asked us to hold shipment. Check the site for details.

      John: The license agreement for the App Store prohibits distribution of an app through any other channels. We're going to stick with the sanctioned outlet.

      Gerard: Frame rate will improve for all models with iOS 5. We're getting 18-20 FPS on iOS 4 with iPhone 4 and 25-30 FPS with iOS 5. iPhone 4S should run at 30 FPS all the time. Note that in low light the iPhone can drop the frame rate to increase exposure time.

      You should release the free apps on cydia as well for quicker updates for us crazy tech geeks. :)

      Michael: with the 4S having higher resolution and a faster cpu, are you guys planning to up the frame rate for 4S models?

      Will we get shipping notifications sent to us when our optics ship?
