      Oh, no problem. It's still a relatively soft lounge even if all kickstarter backers know about it.

      @ Michael:

      You don't have to pay for the content because the app recognizes your iPad and behaves as if you had already paid.

      And yes, the app is available in the App Store since yesterday. We are currently performing a "soft launch" in which only a few people are informed of the launch so that we can fix stuff before the big launch. Now that Michael broke the news you all are invited to download the app (simply search for "Wormworld" in the App Store). The official launch will be October 1st. If anyone has feedback regarding the app, please let me know via mail to "mail@daniellieske.com".

      The App can be found on the AppStore btw. i think it´s not yet finished (you can´t buy the first issue, can see some stuff that should be locked) but it looks amazing.

      Issue price seems to be at 2.99€.

      No, Jessica is totally right to criticize the bad communication of the platforms the app will run on. I realized this much too late when I already had shown first versions of the app and people started to get excited about an iPhone version. I took it for obvious that no one would expect the app to run on smart phones because of the small screen sizes on which the graphic novel wouldn't be readable at all. However, I should have made it much clearer that I was aiming at the tablet platform. I used a tablet in the project video but I labeled the app as "developed for iOS and Android" which didn't make a clear point about the fact that it will be a tablet app. I'm sorry about that and I hope that not too many people feel tricked or screwed or something like that. After all, the app will give me a chance to keep working full time on the graphic novel so everyone will benefit in the long run as I'll keep the story free for all. Concerning the exclusive app features I'll look for more ways to make them available. I realize that there are a lot people who would like to access the exclusive features but who don't own a tablet. We'll have to see how things work out next year but if I manage to gather the needed resources, the app won't be the only way to get everything out of the Wormworld Saga. After all it would be in my best interest to give as many people as possible the chance to support the project.

      @ Jessica
      Kickstarter is not a shop or the appstore. Kickstarter is a startup platform that alows people that request help to colect their funds more easy and alows them to give something back to the people that answerd their request.
      Everyones main reward is that Daniel will be able to work on to "book" fulltime, everything elth is just a bonus.

      Well this totally stinks. When this project was started, it was under the impression that I could use the app on my iPhone. I asked several times to confirm, and now after spending my money I find it is iPad only. Bad marketing!!!

      I saw this after it was already funded, but I've read it before and love your story. The whole idea of the app is perfect, wish I had an iPad to read it on but oh well. Keep up the good work and I'll keep reading online.

      Daniel - now that the KS funding is coming to a close, wanted to tell you how proud I feel of backing this up. Specially because I share the same goals as you - being able to make a living off my creations someday. But I'm aware I must focus on producing something as awesome as WWS part 1 first. You're showing us up that when there's a will, there's a way. Congratulations! :)

      I guess that an iOS app should be easily portable to the Mac appstore. I cannot guarantee it without having asked the developers but it's very likely.
