New devices that work with Hone!

Posted by Geoffrey Litwack (Creator)

Does Hone support [device x]?

We've been fielding questions about what Hone works with. When the Kickstarter launched it was simple: Hone would work with the iPhone 4S and third-generation iPad. Since then Apple has released or announced a whole slew of new devices, and Hone works with all of them! The iPhone 5, the new iPod touch with Retina Display (and yes, our app will take advantage of the larger screen resolution on the new iPhone and iPod), the iPad fourth-generation and the new iPad mini. Hone still will not work with the iPad 2, iPhone 4, or any Apple devices previous to those. 

What about Android?

We've gotten lots of questions about Android. Unfortunately, until Android ships full Bluetooth 4.0 support in the base OS, we just don't have the resources to test and ship the many different app versions that would be required. The good news is, we've been hearing rumblings that the next major release will have full Bluetooth 4.0 support, so fingers crossed on that front!

Production update

We've recently endured some minor delays with our factory - I don't have a whole lot of color to add at this moment, but we're hopeful it won't have an impact on our larger schedule. Otherwise, everything continues apace. In the next update we'll show you our final preproduction Hone boards! As always, thanks so much for your support, and if you have any questions, don't hesitate to get in touch.

All Best,

Geoff + Louis
