Update #44

FloJack Reimagined

Comment

iOS 7 really did a number to the FloJack. The issues we’re seeing are bigger than just a few tweaks here and there. NFC Actions is broken and, after buckling down for the last few weeks, we’ve had to come to grips with the realization that fixing it is not optimal. It’s been well documented that the iOS 7’s audio subsystem has radically changed and it’s likely it will happen again.

Update #43

Order List, New Flomie & FloJack Build Party @ LAB Miami

Comment

I’d like to begin this post by thanking our KickStarter supporters and those who were able to get in on the first FloJack preorder. We’ve had some issues with quality control and our yield hasn’t been quite where it should be, this was out of our control. Some of the FloJack boards arrived partially assembled and others had broken connections — we’ve been working day and night to make the necessary repairs to the hardware to get it all up to snuff. Some boards were beyond saving and those have been set aside. It’s been a rough road, but we’re trudging on.

FloJack Shortage: Case Supplier Woes

4 comments

We wanted to get another update out to stem the number of emails we keep getting. At the moment we’ve shipped close to 100 FloJacks. Our fulfillment team worked hard to make sure each package was done right. Customers are starting to use them and send us tons of feedback. We’re working on adding more support content to our site so customers can get the answers they need fastest. As of today, however, we are out of FloJack cases. Our supplier has run into issues and we’re looking at all possible alternatives.

Update #41

Stop Ship Issue and WoofLinks

Comment

Sup people, last Friday while shipping a batch of FloJacks we started seeing some unusual behavior and a few dead batteries. Our quality control procedure is to test out each FloJack with a standard set of 8 tags (all different shapes, sizes, and types) before boxing them up. Some FloJacks failed with the larger tags but a couple just had dead batteries. The dead batteries were very troubling since we have been using production FloJacks ourselves for over two weeks without issues. We spent the weekend taking apart FloJacks and studying their behavior. We found that a simple compiler flag change from last week was causing the FloJack to constantly reset.

Update #40

FloJack's are Shipping.

4 comments

Hey Kickstater, I wanted to send out a quick update to our earliest supporters.  We've overcome the most critical roadblocks and are finally shipping FloJacks.  We were hung up with a high current drain issue that was killing our battery life as well as an enclosure defect that wasn't securing the battery door in place.  Also, support for the newest iOS devices (ones with lightning connector) was giving us trouble since this hardware is substantially different than previous models. We were able to fix a lot of these issues and are happy enough with the performance of the FloJack to start shipping them to the most eager 100 customers.
