      I would like to share my experience after receiving my flojacks from flomio:
      on a scale from 1 to 10, where 1 is worst and 10 is fantastic:

      Delivery/receiving product: 2 ( I only had to wait for over a month)
      packing detail/ instructions/ (thank you note):-1
      functionality of the product:0 (but it could possibly be me who does not have a clue)
      support: 1 (there is a forum.....but not very helpful)
      finishing of the product:1 battery door

      so in all a big disappointment.....there are some pretty bad kickstarter projects out there....and this one can join that group.

      will do some more trails to see if I can make it work.......but this product the way it is today and how it is presented...is not worth the funds.

      @A. Joseph. Glad to hear you've received your FloJack. We're working on updating the NFC Actions app on the App store to work with the new firmware we shipped with. The current version will not respond due to some substantial retrofitting we've done to the SDK this past month.

      @Pascal, we're building and shipping FloJacks every day. We ship via USPS Priority for international orders. Your order has yet to ship out but you are within the next 30 shipments. Labor day holiday is this weekend so if we don't get to it tomorrow, it will likely go out Wednesday or Thursday of next week.

      It's been an enormous challenge for such a small team. But we're committed to seeing these units reach our awesome community and excited to see what NFC will become once ubiquity of devices can be achieved. Here's a quick video I took today for a customer that sent in some of their sample wristbands for testing: https://www.dropbox.com/s/nneglf8x1tdvwwy/VID_20130729_103757.mp4

      Hi Kevin, we've come a long way and the FloJack continues to get better. We've failed at shipping estimates because the last 5% of polishing the product has been incredibly time consuming. We've gone through 5 iterations with our enclosure manufacturer and we've yet to achieve a level of quality we're happy with. What's cool is that we've been able to optimize the firmware and SDK as we wait for corrected parts to be shipped back and forth.

      Creator Kevin on July 26, 2013

      Any update on shipping. Your early june date said you should be shipping by the end of jun. Your July 6 date said you received a bunch of units and working on final case modifications. I understand delays are part of the issue but it would be great to have more clarity on the status and realistic estimates of shipping. transparent communication equals happy backers.

      @florin, we've been contacting alpha testers directly over the past few weeks. Working with each on a case by case basis.

      The FloJack runs on a standard coin cell CR2032 battery. We chose this type because they're easy to find at convenience stores / super markets. And yes you can purchase a rechargeable Li-Ion 2032 if you'd like.

    22. Florin_200x200.small

      Creator Florin van Slingerland on January 31, 2013

      Regarding the last updates:

      When will the people hear that they are sellected for an alpha unit and when will they receive them?

      Regarding the battery, is it replaceable, or even better, rechargable?

      There is no time. Please help me.

      Creator Flomio on November 17, 2012

      Hey Florin.... thanks for commenting. That's a great idea: 2 FloJacks + 1 FloCase. OK. Let me speak with the rest of the Flomies and we'll figure out the details. As for the bright colors... I'd love too. Bright colors are much more exciting in general. With the FloCase shipping in Spring 2013, it would be that much more awesome. The reality is that after we complete the molds, we can injection mold any color polycarbonate. We could even make it translucent. With the rubber parts, we can do the same. We can even change the durometer of the rubber to make it really hard like plastic, or soft like a baby's pacifier. Once it's all molded, we can also screenprint the surfaces with numerous colors, with various finishes. So the color combinations are nearly infinite. Only problem is that there are minimum orders per configuration. I'm glad you like the bright colors. I do too. I want my FloCase to stick out. Wow. Stickers are a really great idea too.

    37. Florin_200x200.small

      Creator Florin van Slingerland on November 16, 2012

      Oops, sorry forgot a question:

      Q3: Colors
      ---------------
      Will there be plans to introduce a few bright colored versions of the FloCase? The black and the white version are great to not stand out. But I can imagine use-cases where I want the FloCase to be noticed, since it can get other people curious enough to ask what it is and perhaps want to use them as well.

      If it's not possible, it's not a problem either, then I just have to talk later on to a company like Gelaskins to make stickers for it.

      Creator Florin van Slingerland on November 16, 2012

      Hi Flomio, I got a few small questions:

      Q1, Dev Kit with a FloCase in it:
      ------------------------------------------
      I'm backing for the Flojack Dev Kit, with the 3 FloJacks. I'm wondering, with the latest news. Would it be possible to Have it with 2 FloJacks and 1 FloCase.

      For development the FloJacks are great, but for demonstrating it, the FloCase seems to be a better tool.

      Q2: FloCase for the iPhone 5
      ---------------------------------------
      You're saying that the FloCase touch tip is inspired by sharks, then I'm wondering if sharks can swim upside-down and a bit stretch out? It would be great if you could make an iPhone 5 version as well.

      If this project was added to the iExpander (http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/108290897/iexpander-an-expansion-device-for-your-iphone-4-an), It would be magical. You wouldn't need the headphone jack piece at all, it's just be built in the case. I'd say that'd be a more compelling method than a big circle sticking out of the top of your phone.

    44. Ks_flomio_logo.small

      Creator Flomio on November 7, 2012

      @Dominick - Yup, exactly. With the firmware interface documentation we're hoping developers will port the FloJack to any device with a combined 3.5mm microphone-headphone jack.

      So with the developer program does that mean that someone could develope drivers for this to work on a normal computer?

    46. Ks_flomio_logo.small

      Creator Flomio on October 30, 2012

      @Florin - Our pledge levels currently include our Flomio branded Zapps which are indeed pre-printed. However, if we surpass our funding goal we intend to offer customizable Zapps for DIY types like yourself (http://db.tt/EPqQPG5M). They will be printable with an ordinary deskjet printer and easy to assemble.

    47. Ks_flomio_logo.small

      Creator Flomio on October 30, 2012

      @stanar - There isn't immediate plans to support Android phones without NFC, but our developer program will include all the details to write a FloJack driver of your own. Stay tuned for more information on this.

    48. Florin_200x200.small

      Creator Florin van Slingerland on October 30, 2012

      In the video/photos I see that the zapps are having all kind of logos (Google/Spotify/etc.).
      This is, for me, not really useful. I want to use them to demonstrate my own concepts/products. Is it possible to get the zapps with my own logo(s) on them? Or will they be provided without any logo on them.
