Hi, everyone. 

The iOS and Android apps are available! Go to https://botsalive.com/setup for instructions on getting them.

Once you've played with it—or watched someone else do so—if you have thoughts you'd like to share on what in Bots Alive thrills, disgusts, intrigues, bores, inspires, or confuses you, we'd love to hear them at info@botsalive.com. We plan update the app at least once more, and we'll incorporate what feedback we can in that update.

Thanks so much for your patience while we worked through replacing the discontinued IR blasters. I'm deeply grateful and hope you'll find value in what we've created for you.

Take care!
Brad, Brendan, and the Bots Alive team

P.S. To finish the app, I traded all Saturday parenting duties/privileges for a full day tomorrow with the delightful 1-year-old Sabine. So I likely won't be able to respond to any messages until Monday at the earliest.

P.P.S. For those interested, here are a few photos of our packing a few weeks ago:

      Brad,

      Thanks to you and your team for getting this done! Looking forward to the other two units I backed. As a parent of 4, sometimes trading DUTIES, is pretty fun! Trading privileges is a HAVE TO and I have had to do it it too. It's great to have a partner that understands! Hopefully this project paired with your future projects will be so successful that you will be able to spend all the time you want with your family.
