I apologize the forthrightness but it seems to be getting increasing difficult for you to overcome your setbacks WITHOUT getting some additional support and help.
This is absolutely disappointing. The delayed shipment (due to legitimate setbacks) is understandable. But no communication is inexplicable. It is unreasonable to make a promise for delivery and not update for over a month!
People select a project because they passionately believe in the project and want it to succeed. If possible they would even help beyond just funding it.
Can you please help us understand the setbacks you are suffering? Maybe some of your funders might have experience with it and might be able to help you.

I don't believe I ever received the survey... Any one else have this problem?
I thought we were going to get the app to start using with the button on our headphones prior to the hardware arriving. Where is an update on *that*? I can understand hardware delays and the need for good quality, but the software side is not dependent on that and should have been ready for the original ship date.
Holy shit some people here need to stop whining. Your crying and begging for a refund (lol!) isn't gonna do anything. Just wait. Maybe message them on Facebook or so
hmm...It's been a month since the last update. Has there been a delay?
Hardware is obviously delayed (again)...but hardware is only half the equation here. What about the Pressy app? Is that ready to go for when hardware does ship?
Come on pressy ! I had such high hopes! Just update us on something....... ANYTHING!
I would also like an update from Pressy.
The last update that was e-mailed to me was in March... I had to Google 'Pressy' to find THIS one. I was a bit bummed when the shipping date was pushed back to April, but I dealt with it. I was frustrated when it got pushed back another month, but again, I dealt with it. Now it's mid May and I still don't have my Pressy. I want a refund.
WHERE IS MY PRESSY?? WHEREEEE??????
Where is my Pressy? A long time ago I was excited about having ordered a Pressy, I even told some of my friends about how cool it was. Now, I just feel like a fool.. Please change that by sending an update explaining where the Pressy has gone, as it seems you pressed it so much that you disappeared - not cool!
So it's been another month with no communication. What is the problem? At this point the developers have $700, 000. $700,000 is a commitment not a hobby or a side project. It takes about 5 minutes to send an email update. It is the least you can do. Show a little respect to the people who supported you.
Lol, I had completely forgotten that I had backed this project up. I guess if I receive it, it will be a bonus. Good luck to everybody who is actually expecting this to ship. :)
All these people want is an explanation for what happened to make you miss the ship date, or what you meant by shipping on the 28th (did you mean to us, or to you from the factory?). As long as it wasn't "we stole your money haha" I'm sure most of the people would be reasonable and accept your explanation and wait. However, not posting anything after seemingly promising a ship date and missing it is poor show at best and bad customer service at worst.
I guess we shouldn't expect anything... So much for supporting kick starter projects
I agree with my fellow backers here that we would all like un update.
what the hell people
Just give an update already - I mean, setbacks happen, machines break down, whatever..... just update us on progress. The last communication was 4/28/2014 for shipping .... now nothing .....
are you going to send us the tracking number?
is this item is shipped or still waiting
Yeah, the surveys went out months ago.
I never got the survey. Have those already gone out?
Any public updates? Are they fooling us?
They haven't startet shipping. Got a private message from Nimrod Back, May 8, 2014:
Alive and kicking :)
We hope to start shipping soon, within the next week or two, but the
problem is that we depend on so many other parties that setbacks seem
Once we have a definitive date we will provide it, we just don't want to
send a faulty product to people who have been so amazing in their support
Let us know if you have anymore questions
Very disappointed that they did not made it a public update...
Hey Pressy, could we get an update?
The last comment a Pressy person made on this update was April 14. Since then communication FROM you has fallen dark.
According to this update you should have already received the buttons and should be starting shipping to us. Mid-May starts on the 11th and last only until the 20th.
Are you going to make that pledge to us?
When the week is over, and you didn't say that the pressy's are shipped, then i want a refund
I decided to back your project because I thought it was a great idea and it deserved to be successful. The $42 I spent on the reward plus the add-on isn't the issue. I've lost a great deal more on my own self inflicted ideas.
But your lack of communication exhibits either a tremendous stupidity on your part or you really are scammers and have a special spot in Hell reserved just for you.
If you have failed at this endeavor, own up to your backers and say so. Otherwise let us know what's going on or take the consequences.
If I don't see some kind of communication real soon, even if it's to say things are totally screwed up. I'll just turn it over to the fraud department of Visa and let them deal with you.
A refund is looking better and better. One more week and if I don't have it, I will expect a refund. Sorry. You splattered your idea all across the internet, not us. Copycats are like fleas.
Umh...no email...no message on the website....
Pressy...not cool. You should punish the copycats and not your supporters. 2 weeks have passed since the latest promised delivery dates, and we don't even get a response. You are going to lose lots of faith, Pressy.
Hmm, why aren't these updates delivered by email? I still get email updates from my other backed projects. I have backed 6 projects and this is the only one that's not going according to plan. The last update I got by email was at the beginning of the year.
Moreover, when I selected the t-shirt size, I asked the organizers to please provide a t-shirt size chart so I can be sure the size I've selected was the right one for me. They said they will make a chart later on and that I'll be given the chance to change the size before the survey is locked down. Nothing was done in that regard.
So far the difference between Pressy and the Limbal is that I got my Limbal :)
I am very confident that the Pressy will make it out to backers. However like you I would like more info on shipping considering that we were told that shipping was expected to start last week. However it isn't quite time to break out the pitchfork and torches.
As for "some idiots pay for nothing" you are almost exactly right. Kickstarter is not a store. You didn't buy a product, you funded someone's opportunity to try and create a product. Whether they are successful or not, you got the only "reward" that Kickstarter guarantees.

Any update on Pressy deliveries?
I only ask because I just ordered one of these for less than $5
I know you guys are doing your best to get this product out to backers, but already copycats & clones are springing up everywhere. Deal Extreme has 3 Pressy clones, and most of us have heard of the Xiaomi MiKey that made headlines a few months ago. Even with your patent it will be nearly impossible to squash all of the Chinese-made knockoffs.
Please let us know that our Pressy Buttons will be shipping soon.
one of the reasons for going with a Pressy is the "only 0.7mm", the picture promoting this is still prominent on the KS product page, the Pressy buttons in this update look a lot bigger, the keychain is completely different, I'm already disappointed by all the delays and lack of communication but getting a different and even inferior product will be a real downer. You almost got $700k a regular (weekly) update should not be too hard. If this continues I think Pressy could be the next project in the news with a class action suit against them, you can't just rip off 28818 people and hope to get away with it.
I have a dilemma. I can get a copycat from Deals Extreme for much less than what I pledged. Do I get the copycat? Or do I keep waiting and support the innovation that is Pressy? With little to no communication from the Pressy team, it is getting harder to stay loyal. I will give it one more month and than I will have to request a refund. Hope it doesn't come to that, though. As for the holder, not fussed. It will stay in my pocket most of the time so the looks are not important. And the DRM? Again, not too fussed. Everyone has to protect their IP. I just hope Pressy allow multiple devices as most people I know have a phone and a tablet. Let's hope multiple devices is allowed.
I've emailed before and never got a response from them about delivery. From the looks of this posting thread I'm thinking they are not getting back to anyone else. Anyone know of any other avenues we can take to get an answer out of them?
When will we be able to download the app and what is the status of shipping?
Any shipping progress?
@Pierre, good luck getting an answer out of them. They have no respect for their backers, their lack of answering any other questions via updates shows that. I would recommend paying for a mail redirect service.
So, can you confirm shipping has started? Because I move out on May 28th. Should the Pressy button not arrive before then, then I need to change the address.
It would be really nice to know if you really started shipping. Are they shipped from China? The packaging looks like what?
Marcel - We'll see if it is a hoax, but dimple requires NFC. Which mean you have to keep it running to work (maybe you can set your Pressy up to turn it on, so you can use the dimple). NFC drains battery pretty fast...
This whole Pressy starts to looks like an almighty hoax ........ maybe I should switch to http://dimple.io/
@Ryan... Did your manifesto-rant make you feel better? Lots of ways to communicate, but we here in the choir have heard that sermon before.
@Claes Olesen Christensen COPYCAT -SOLD OUT- NEW VERSION FOR LOWER PRICE US$ 4,80
Think it is less because they are in Israel (which all you US backers seem to have an issue with) and more to do with co-ordinating the sending out of nearly 29k items
@nathan. I think it's because they are "now" based in israel. that's why it take so long... and also. "less than a month" is not including if it got stuck in custom... so.. yeah...
"we are starting the delivery next week, everyone should receive theirs in lees than a month."
Holy crap! What are they using, a horse and carriage?
From their Facebook Page in response to another person running out of patience:
Pressy Hi (Name Removed), we are starting the delivery next week, everyone should receive theirs in lees than a month. Thanks!
