      Awesome news!

    2. Scrona Creator on September 12

      @Katharina: The iOS App is currently in review. We will inform you as soon as it is available.

      @San Su: We will soon post another extensive update and make sure to get a few nice pictures about the assembly process

    3. Oletros on September 11

      So yes, another delay and another excuse

      Nice ! and thx for a quick update

    6. Daniel Thompson on September 5

      That's great news! I'm really looking forward to hearing when you have assembled the units.

    7. Scrona Creator on September 5

      Dear Backers. We want to give you a quick update. After finally receiving the casings (with some further delay though) we have immediately sent a few of them to make a test of the metal coatings. As this was succesful the whole batch was sent for processing and we will get them back by end of the week. Once the casings are back we will immediately start with the assembly. While we have learned that giving an exact date is generally not possible, we are still very positive that shipping will start within the month. Sorry again that things always take a bit longer than expected, but we are still fully committed to get this rewards shipped as soon as possible.

    8. Will Kostelecky on September 4

      It is next month!!!!!

    9. Oletros on September 2

      I hope that next update won't be another announcement of a delay

      Dear All. We are happy to inform you that the casings have finally arrived and we are now making them ready for a last external intervention, a mirror coatings step. Afterwards we can finally start with assembly and start shipping next month.

      I would say just keep us informed of the progress and don't worry about a shipping timeline, that is normally to difficult to project accurately and little things can push it back.

      After a road too long, and with far too many bumps, Home is now in view. If we can get past this part, we're all going to be damn proud to be (m)uPeek owners!! I've got that feeling! :)

      Hello Team,

      How is the initial batch coming along? Was progress good enough to give an estimated shipping date?
      And what is the status for the iPhone version of the app?

      Really eager to get the micropeek in my hands :)

      @Danilo - Nope, just a regular backer like yourself. I just read every backer comment, every creator comment, and every word of every update. I think they've been transparent enough for all of us to see where things are heading and why. :)

    22. Danilo on July 31

      @Knight1505 -you're part of the production team? Your insight seems almost uncanny, and you're always spot-on with your predictions...

      @Scrona - Your constant show of forward progress (sometimes slow progress, but progress nonetheless), keeps me 100% patient. I have other project far less late than this one that I am much more frustrated with, because they DO NOT show any forward progress.

      I've said it before, and I will keep saying it: Keep your commitment to quality! Build and deliver the product that you are proud to put your name on! Keep updating us periodically with shows of progress! You guys are doing a GREAT job!!

      @creator arms up - sounds great !

    25. Scrona Creator on July 24

      @Everyone: Our injection molder has announced production of the casings for 31st of July, i.e. next week. Once production has started, it will only take about 2-3 days for initial quantity to be concluded. Again, the now-communicated production start is later than what was initially promised to us, but at least it is not another major delay. We will be back with another full update next week.

      @Night1505: Thanks for clarifying! As outlined in above lines, mass production of the casings will start next week, so it will take a bit longer than anticipated in our last update. Hope patience will not run out. We are almost there!

      *Correction - The update indicated that they will start assembly at the end of July, so production might actually be done before then. :D

      @Denise Hou - Just judging from their spread of updates so far, I'd say we could probably expect the next one closer to the end of the month. They indicated that production should be nearing completion about then, so I'm hopeful for an update then. For now, I think we are smack in the middle of mass production.

      I'm right there with you on the excitement to finally get this though. It does make it tough to stay patient. :)

      @Alaa AboAljadayl. That is the wonderful thing about this thing, it connects through Bluetooth, so no matter what phone you have No worries! And since they are sending all of the mounting pads we can change between phones and it should work just fine.

      @SJD: The samples were not yet sufficient but we are doing some additional work together with the supplier at the moment. We hope we will get positive results by next week. We will probably be able to post another complete update by end of next week.

    36. Oletros on May 27

      I'm worried, the final samples theoretically started to reach on May 15 and 2 weeks later we don't know anything about the state.

      I smell another big delay

      @leefw2002 - They still haven't hit the shipping phase yet, so we could still be looking at a couple of months for actual delivery.

      I'm staying hopeful that all the manufacturing pitfalls have been addressed, and they have finally reached production.

      We should probably be getting an update in the next few days or so. I'm just basing this on the fact that they usually go about 4 to 6 weeks between updates though. :)

      "The next and final sampling at the supplier’s premises starts on May 15. If everything is fine, production of the case, slide holder and tablet spacer can start right away."

      Please be sure to keep us updated with this progress. :)

      Thank you, Scrona.

      @Scrona thanks for keeping comms moving and staying in touch with this comments board: that crucial as you move forward through mass production. Really appreciated!

    43. Scrona Creator on May 11

      @Daniel Bültmann: we are indeed working with a local injection molder. It is a Swiss-Italien company. And we actually even had a recommendation of a colleague of ours. Simply choosing the cheapest option without a guarantee for quality was no option to us.

      @Mario Modena: Sure, the iOS App will follow shortly.

      @Alaa AboAlijadayl: No worries, this won't make a difference as the product contains the required adapters.

      Thanks for the update, even though it isn't the best news, it is better than nothing. I tried the App on my Pixel with the latest updates and it seems to work just fine so far.

    48. Oletros on April 26

      More than 1 month later and we still don't have an update.

      "Putting everything together your rewards should be ready for shipment by the second week of April."

      This was the last commitment and it seems that it won't be fulfilled, again.

      On April 16 it was said: "We are still waiting for the casings to go into mass-production. However, things are moving and we will release another update early next week."

      It is almost Thursday and we still don't have any update.

      On April 10 it was said: "He will upload the App to the Play Store until the end of the week (but keep in mind that it can then take a few days until it become released)."

      Where is the app?

      It start to look very bad

    49. Daniel Bültmann on April 26

      Nearly 1 Year late......that is not OK! Next time try take a molder in EU!
