      @Vikas We are working on a suite of adapters to expand the usability of Galileo. We hope to have them available on by Thanksgiving.

      Regarding video calling, you can sign up to be a beta tester by following the link in the previous post. The next few months are going to be really exciting for us :)

      Apple has released the new iPhone 6 and 6 Plus any plans on supporting either of those devices with a new insert? Specs have been released, full detailed specs of the phones are available.

      Motrr live is still not released, can you advise what stage of development you are at? Are you in stage and testing yet?

      Can you please give us an estimate of your timelines?

    3. Motrr Creator on

      Do you want to test the latest and greatest software from Motrr and our app partners?

      Apple is rolling out TestFlight with iOS8, which makes it easy for us to distribute pre-release versions of our apps to you. This is exciting for all of us because it means you can be a more integral part of the app development process.

      Just fill out the form below and we'll send you an invite. For our app partners, we will forward on your email address and recommend they add you as a beta tester via Apple TestFlight.…

      Thanks so much!!

      @Gero Nobody wants a video calling app more than we do. Working on it.

      @Paul We need official specs from Apple before we can commit to any manufacturing. We'll know more soon.

      "6 weeks" is in 2 days. You better have that video calling app ready or just shut business if I was you.

      I hear Apple will be announcing the new iPhone next month. Roughly how long will it take before we have compatible inserts for use with the Galileo?

      When does Motrr Live come?
      There is no information about it on your Web site.
      Do you stop developing the apps? It is a betrayal to the backers.

    14. Paul on

      Yes it works well & looks great, but no Motrr Live app - the main reason I bought the Galileo :-(

      Come on Motrr, pretty pleaaase ;-)

    15. Pasha on

      just got mine -- works like a charm! and I absolutely love the form factor~

      Just received my refund via Paypall, not the complete amount of my pledge but close enough and I can close this case...

    17. Sam Lowrie on

      Has anyone managed to get a refund anyone still waiting? Was there a date given or should we give up all hope? :-P

      When Motrr Live is going to be released? You do realise that you've sold this gadget, because of an app that is not yet available right?!

      Anyone has a good app to use with it because with sphere and timelapse the result is awfull. A lot of pictures are supperposed. --> impossible to use my galileo for now! After 2 years you should be able to create an app!

    23. Chris Chan on

      I have not receive my Galileo. Can any body help me ? Just way too long for this for two years to get this.

    24. Naoki Terai on

      No confirmation email, no shipment notice, no Galileo.
      2 years is too long to wait?

      Finally received mine this week - unhappy to know that the bluetooth version is not compatible with vanilla iPhone 4.

      Now I need to request that an app is made to let the Galileo run with the camera facing backwards so it actually uses the nodal point as per here:

      Basically as I intended my iPhone 4 to be a more disposable camera to leave out for time lapses and have my actual phone (iPhone 5) handy for making calls this is disappointing. Looks like I will have to 'control' the galileo from my iPhone 5 while the 4 is docked inside it.

      Whomever is handling communication now for Motrr,

      Can you please update me and ship to me my two bluetooth compatible limited edition Kickstarter green Galileos? Why has this not happened yet? I'm very patient, however while I wait, I continue to receive emails from Motrr and other companies advertising Galileos for sales off of your website and from Photojojo - this is honestly insulting to me, having invested in this Kickstarter project with my own good money but not having received my reward, and not receiving any communication back from Motrr to my continued inquires. Please, kindly reply back with how this will be resolved and kindly, thank you! I believe in your product - that is why I funded your Kickstarter campaign - now I want to receive my two Galileos so I can use them! :)

      Still waiting. But it appears that others who did not support this KS will actually be able to get them before I do. Albeit for a higher price, but still......

    29. Daniel Bérubé on

      Hello again, trying to get hold of Motrr?

      Can you *please* tell me when I will receive my two limited edition Kickstarter Green Galileo Bluetooth? This has taken very long to receive and I have been very patient! Thank you! :)

    30. Mark Roeschl on

      Last message from Motrr Team on Dec, 18th 2013 with the promise to deliver Galileo asap after holidays.
      Since then NOTHING!
      This treatment is not professional at all.

      Today I was pleasantly surprised, my package arrived (FedEx).
      And. It's great! Yeap, it's a little bit fragile (make sure You're not applying too much pressure). But it's really well made, have soft touch finish, several rubber plugs for different devices (You can even fit there iPhone in case if plug removed). Even micro USB cable is a masterpiece (but not very flexible and short =P).

      I need my Galileo!!! I have moved from iPhone 4 to 4s to 5 and to 5s....

    37. Seçkin KILIÇ on

      Still no answers to messages, still no tracking code, still nothing...

      Please change this project's name to something else. I do NOT want a great scientist's name live in your faulty management and never-delivered product.

      New version of the Motrr app now available:…

      Then open the Motrr app and update Galileo to the latest firmware, version 23 for BT model.

      Received my 2 BT units today in good shape. Sadly because there have been no advancements in making it work with USB webcams I'm going to get rid of them. Anyone interested from NL or nearby can find me on Twitter.

    41. Gadgetfarmer on

      I received a faulty unit last week, and I emailed straightaway but I haven't had any response.

      What's going on?!

      Since pledging I have changed address.
      I sent a message with the new address here on kickstarter.
      Is that the right way to reach you?

    44. Gavin Williams on

      This is probably the longest delivery that I've ever waited for! If this were Amazon or any other company, I would have my delivery fee refunded...

    45. Luis Eduardo Garcia Diaz on

      Got mine a few days ago.... Now How do I use this thing?

    46. Kristian Sommer on

      No galileo recived yet. I got a message saying it will ship shortly. But i guess that isn't true.
      Don't say you will ship it shortly if it's not the case.

      Reminder: Please discontinue messaging through Kickstarter and instead email at We are overwhelmed with emails and appreciate your patience. At this time, address updates and Galileo support issues take priority. If you haven't received your Galileo yet, we will be sending you a confirmation email shortly. Thank you - Motrr
