      @Rob, no loss of functionality minus the middle position of the Slide Bar currently. That's why the appeal was helpful. We will try to get the middle position of the Slide Bar back in a quick update if possible.

    2. Rob Richards on

      Great news on what now appears to be a success with Apple. However, a question, ... If there hasn't been any loss of functionality, how is it that it NOW gets thru Apple ?
      Or IHAS there been some functions lost from that which you originally intended and reported to your backers ?

    3. Jeremiah Clark on

      Is there any way we can contact Apple on behalf of Tapose? I don't want you guys getting in trouble for organizing anything (which would be reasonable on Apple's part, in my opinion), I'm just wondering if there is some particular email or web form to direct comments at? Or maybe a name or number to reference so it gets to the right person? I doubt a normal support message would do any good.

      If Apple won't take it - make it work on Android!!!! Please!

      JoeO, if it's the "Open in..." feature you're talking about, that's built right into iOS and used by thousands of apps. The full reason for the reject is given in the update if you click the "updates" tab above

      JoeO on

      Any ideas on what the basis for the rejection is?

      Personally I suspected that Apple might reject it on the basis of it having 'Launch app' type functionality (Apple don't like replacement app launchers)....

      :( I'm sorry to hear about this guys. Not your fault, of course.

      The App has been rejected by Apple (according to the Facebook post made by Tapose)

    9. Benjamin Monnig Creator on

      No update on the appstore approval. We have contacted Apple to inquire about the status.

      Why do you insist on continuing to so ignorant and difficult, Andreas??

      I know, and knew, when Tapose submitted the App for approval, but what you are unwilling to acknowledge, accept, or are incapable of comprehending for some mystifying reason, is that, Tapose did in fact "reset" the time frame on December 15th, whether you like it or not, to the other 1,273 of us by saying that they will "update us WHEN they hear something from Apple". Guess what??? They still haven't heard anything yet because they have't updated us since Decmber 15th!! ((Actually, the 1,273 of us already have the app and we're playing a trick on you!!))

      OR, maybe they did hear something, they have to resubmit, and don't want to tell us that. That's up to them, but you being impatiently obnoxious isn't going to improve the turnaround time!! Logic would hope you could comprehend that, but it seems that your impatience is overriding your ability to do so!!

      SO.... ONE MORE TIME.... your childish impatience of, and I'm paraphrasing here, "I don't care if it's Christmas or not, tell me what's going on RIGHT NOW because I want to know!!" is overly obnoxious and extremely rude!!

      Andreas Ødegård on

      And in case it still wasn't clear: a month in Apple's hands. A time frame that isn't reset by Tapose updates on this page.

      Andreas Ødegård on

      Let me explain this slowly so perhaps you can keep up: the app was submitted on December 5th. Apple stops app submissions over Christmas, but even so, this is an unusual amount of time for an app to be in review unless something is wrong. Apple has a tendency to deny apps on the weirdest of reasons (e.g. a developer of a note app I use got an update denied because the app contained a web browser, in which case Apple demands 17+ age rating, although that actually isn't enforced by all reviewers. That's the sort of quick note I'm looking for, nothing else. Nothing rude about that.

      @Andreas
      If you're not suggesting to Tapose that they speed it up, then what could you possibly want from them?? The obvious, and only, answer is that you want another update??

      Well then, you're the one who cannot count/read because Tapose's last update was on December 15, NOT the 5th!! Please click on updates and look for the video and then please take special note of the last sentence where they say "We will be updating you as soon as we hear anything". That sentence right there, it's not too tough to miss and it was followed by "Have a nice Day".

      Like I said... you'll get it when you get it!! ((either the app OR an update))

      P.S. "Christmas or no Christmas" was implying that you don't care whether or not that the biggest holiday of the year just passed because you want: an update from Tapose or your App from store. Whichever it was, that's just a plain rude way to ask for anything!!

      Andreas Ødegård on

      @Eric Amend: I don't know what your problem is, but there was nothing obnoxious about my comment. First off, you can't count, as the update about the app being submitted to Apple was posted December 5th. Today is January 5th. Do the math. Second, I'm not suggesting that the Tapose guys can do anything to speed it up here, as they have submitted the app to Apple, which means it's in their hands now.

      As for the iPen, my message to the project creators regarding the issue is dated November 23rd. I assumed they simply weren't aware of it and wanted to bring it to their attention. They completely ignored that message for over a month until a website called them out on it, forcing them to comment on the issue. To me, that just makes them bigger crooks than they were originally.

      Eric Amend on

      @Andreas Odegard,

      Actually, it's only been 18 days from the time of Tapose's last update until you posted your obnoxious comment, which is two and a half weeks here on Planet Earth, and isn't considered a month.... "Christmas or no Christmas". So hold your horses there lil' man, you'll get it when you get it!!

      And don't be trolling here about the iPen, which I'm also backing, because they had already rectified the issue. Sorry if you didn't get the memo, I did.

      Andreas Ødegård on

      Any update on the review process? Been a month, Christmas or no Chritstmas.

      Btw, be careful about that iPen thing. They advertise it as being world's first, but an almost identical product was shown off months ago, called the aPen or something like that. I confronted the iPen people about this and got no response. Smells like scammers, or at least very sleazy people who rely on deceit to sell their product.

    17. Gerald Lutz on

      Have you noticed the iPen Kickstarter project? Adding support for that seems like a no-brainer for this product!

      I can't believe it. I know that I get a free copy of Tapose from being a backer, but do you think I'm going to wait even 2 seconds for that promo code before I just purchase another copy via the App Store as soon as Apple approves it? Now I just have to decide who gets my promo code I guess.

      joe319 on

      Thanks for the update. I can really use this program so am looking forward to it. But, no stress from here. I'd rather have it running smoothly than get a copy that has problems. It looks great.

    20. Oliver Meyer on

      + 1 on the collaboration features, can't wait to play around with it.
      BUT, please get the writing features right, I just ordered a jot from the states. For me, this is one of the key features to tapose, without proper handwriting tools I don't see the point of the whole app.. may the force be with you, you're almost there...

      I've not received a shipment notification for the Tapose keepsake (I whose the $100 level because I was particularly interested in the keepsake...).

      You do have my shipping address as I received my stylus okay...

    22. Ross Freeman on

      Glad to hear! I could hardly wait to get my hands on it.

    23. Benjamin Monnig Creator on

      Ross, we are getting VERY close :). The book is the Tapose keepsake.

    24. Ross Freeman on

      I just got my shipment notification for the book! I was a little confused at first lol. Hopefully this is a sign that Tapose will be released soon.

      Just read a story over at CNET about Courier/Tapose. Exciting to hear that a former Microsoft executive is one of the largest backers of this project. Maybe hes even given some input on the design/features?
      Makes me even more anxious to get my hands on it!

      Still have not been able to answer my survey, does this mean I don't get a copy?

    27. Oliver Meyer on

      Hey guys,
      great to hear that everything's on track but could you possibly be more vague about the new collaboration features? How about some details for your backers? And: when will we finally get to play around with the Tapose App?

    28. Missing avatar

      JoeO on

      I have to say I was sceptical about the Jot stylus but having used it for a couple of days now I'm convinced.
      Good choice guys, well done!

      Now if I can just get my hands on Tapose... :-)

    29. JOE Houde on

      Hey guys - any issues with the new ios5 multi-task gestures? I've noticed that my writing is hered on a few apps when they are enabled.

    30. Benjamin Monnig Creator on

      Great to hear Ross!

    31. Ross Freeman on

      Just got my jot in the mail! It's a really great stylus and I can't wait to use it in tapose.

      Any time line? when is it going to be ready?

    33. Benjamin Monnig Creator on

      Allen, we noticed the same thing.

    34. Allen Lulu on

      I've never used Noteshelf. And, while it's not as fully realized as you hope to have Tapose, I was struck by how similar the graphics are. The journal covers look the same.

    35. Benjamin Monnig Creator on

      After a quick look, Clibe looks more like NoteShelf than Taposé.

    36. Allen Lulu on

      Ummm...did Clibe just clobber you guys? Looks almost the same. Glitchy as hell but...free. Hmmm...

      I agree with scaling back of the feature list, except for the "Mind Reading". What languages are you going to support?

      Seriously, I know developers always hate this question. Is there a target date for the first release? Sorry, had to ask.

    38. Benjamin Monnig Creator on

      Shawn, we agree. However, both required complicated tasks to merge completely with Tapose. Since we are already integrating iCloud backup and Tapose collaboration, it was hard to justify the time resource to include two more backup options in the initial release. The plan is to add as an update soon after launch!

      Shawn Johnson on

      Thanks for the update, I completely understand about having to reduce some features in order to make launch and have a quality product. I believe Dropbox and Evernote are critical for making Tapose highly functional and they were the features i was most early anticipating, if they don't make it for launch I hope they are high on the list for the next update

    40. Benjamin Monnig Creator on

      Thanks for the info! We will check out the More Real Stylus. Yes, normal updates will be free, including bug fixes.

      I love the idea of joining with other KS projects - this is exactly what community supported business is all about. I also supported More Real Stylus and they seem to have a great product too. If the SEattle thing doesn't work out, check out this Chicago based business. http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/donlehman/more-real-stylus-cap…. Will we be able to download bug fixed (although I am sure there will be none :) and updates for free later? Thanks for all your efforts!

    42. Benjamin Monnig Creator on

      Kevin, we completely understand. Was not an easy decision. These will be added if there is time. If not, it is the first thing to be added as an update.

      Kevin Joseph on

      I read the update that was just sent. While I am an avid supporter of this project and think this app will be a great addition to my iPad, I have to comment on the removal of the calendar/to do function from the release. To me this is a major reason for getting the app. Combined with the browser and notebook functions, this app is designed for productivity. Without the calendar/to do function, it simply becomes another web browser or note pad app. I can understand having to limit in order to achieve time goals, but I really believe this will be limiting success.

    44. Benjamin Monnig Creator on

      We will post an update in the next day or two with our final schedule.

      I absolutely agree with Happy Owl Studio. I own the original wallet and I can't say enough nice things about it. It I a great case.

      As to the stylus, check out Hard Candy Cases. They have a very stylish one

      Thanks, Ben. everything else seems to be doing what it's supposed to be. I would make and send a journal but right now I'm just playing around with ways of putting pictures in, like a photobook.
      Hope things are going well there.

      Drag-and-drop from Safari hasn't been enabled it. It will be soon though. We are also making it easier to grab, move, edit, and delete media.
