Posted by Shai Goitein (Creator)

Hello, backers!

First of all, thanks to everybody for supporting our fundraising campaign. In 60 days we reached 21,412 backers, totaling $1,232,612. That’s phenomenal!

Now, in the last few days, we’ve received notification from Kickstarter and Amazon Payments that some backers’ payments were not processed successfully. If your payment didn’t go through, Kickstarter has sent you instructions on how to verify and update your payment info, and they’ll send reminders every 48 hours — you have until this Saterday, February 1, to resolve your payment issue. After that, any backers with failed payments will be dropped by Kickstarter.

If you’ve received the message that your payment failed, log in to your Kickstarter account and follow the “Fix Payment” button at the top of your screen, which will allow you to update your payment info. Here’s a short video that explains how to easily fix the problem:

You can make sure your payment was processed successfully by checking your backer history in Kickstarter. There, click on the PowerUp 3.0 campaign. In the window that pops up, you’ll be able to see whether the pledged amount has been successfully collected or not. If you have any problems, please look through Kickstarter’s FAQ and contact Kickstarter directly via if you need assistance.

PowerUp 3.0 at the world’s biggest toy fair

Yesterday I set up my booth at Spielwarenmesse International Toy Fair, the biggest toy fair in the world, happening now in Nuremberg! If you’re visiting the show, be sure to stop by and get a personal demo of PowerUp 3.0! I’ll be in the American Pavilion, Hall 12.0, Booth B-08-2 until Monday, February 3. Here’s me and one of PowerUp 3.0’s passionate backers who stopped by. It’s so awesome to meet you guys!

For more exclusive images check out our Facebook album from the show.

First beta test packages have arrived

We just received the first PowerUp 3.0 beta samples, and they look awesome! The packaging came out outstanding as well! Before we send them out to the 50 lucky backers who signed up for beta testing, we’ll test them and verify that each one is working according to spec so we can get the best feedback from you when you receive them.Again, thanks for your support! As we enter this next phase, we’ll be updating you once every 2 weeks on our progress and more fun stuff.

Thank you, Shai

      Hi, in the market most of the android phone are using Android 4.2 and no update of android 4.3. Is it possible to design the apps for android 4.2 too?
