      Guys,
      Can you please issue my refund. Its been months now and you promised it already multiple times to refund my pledge without following through. Since you now not even responding to my private messages anymore, I know ask via the general forum for my refund. At least tell me when you intend to issue the refund and not always making up some bulls#$t promises that you not keep anyway.
      By now I have lost all patience and getting slightly agitated. Refund
      my money. Your product has so far diverted from your initial design and I am not interested to carry a dongle attachment around all the time.

      We're sorry we have not issued update recently. We have finished the pilot run for iPen 2, and sent the sample to app developers. We're looking to ship iPen 2 to Apple for their lab testing next week. Please expect our update next week including iMac development status.

      Creator Rameshor Sangat on March 21

      Common guys it's been 2 years and you guys are still working on and on. What about iPen 2 for iMac? If you guys do delays all time than you won't get success in this project 'cause Apple launch new product almost twice a year and you guys didn't even finished your project. So it seems that the project will go on and on forever.

      So much promise but so little delivered. Bought first version which didn't work very well, pledge and supported second version but no sign of delivery and now no support for 30 pin iPads so I have no choice but to ask for a refund. But how long will that take???

      Anything new?
      It's been a month since last update.
      Did the app developers receive their samples?
      Any news about the manufacture, schedule, or a real demo from real apps?
      Is the design of the iPen 2 will make the iPad set in 180 degree angle, or the angle would be less?
      I visit this page many times a day, it's like I got use to it.
      April, the month of iPen 2, and the month of game of thrones. How awesome is that :D

      Dear Dan,
      I”m really sorry for the refund delay. Please give us few more weeks to arrange your refund. In fact, we have used all the funds to develop iPen 2. We are getting working capital from other sources now. As soon as the fund gets in, we will process full refund. I appreciate your patience.

      So I've been trying to figure out what to do/how this affects me since your last update. I was a backer of iPen 1, so I pledged for that category for the 30-pin model, as I had just upgraded to the new iPad 3 when this project started. Now you aren't making the 30-pin model for so many of us.

      But I also added the Mac desktop model to my pledge, so I am supposed to get both.

      I don't see a place to change my pin option to receive the other {only} version for iPad that you will be making. I won't be able to use it now, as I just can't afford to trade in the iPad 3 that I have and upgrade to the newer iPad model at this time, with the lightning adapter. I guess I will have to hope it will still be compatible in the future.

      But please tell me that the desktop version will be created, and will be compatible with my computer {purchased June 2012, the 27" version}. And how to go about changing my pledge so that I do receive what I should get, though not what I ordered. And an estimated delivery date. Thank you.

      Creator Cregle Inc. on February 17

      @IVAN: The mass production means we will complete the assembling and packaging, and we will begin to ship the iPen 2 after that. We expect to ship the iPen 2 (iPad model) in the April.

      Creator IVAN VELASCO on February 13

      @Cregle: I already read the last update, and it is not clear when will you be shipping the iPen2, otherwise I would not have asked. Still, it is not clear to me. The last thing was you were going to ship the iPen2 in March. Now, obviously it is not going to be March, and your answer is when you finish the mass production on April 9-11. Do you think it would be possible for us to have an estimate date when will you be shipping the iPen2? Since you changed the shipping date again, you should provide a date.

    21. Cregle_logo1024.small

      @Xavalon: The receiver will have mini-usb port that you can charge the stylus and iPad at the same time, but there is not video port.

      @Ivan: As soon as we finish the mass production, we will ship to the backers. Please check update #31.

      Could you also detail more about the receiver (technical characteristics). Is there an extra port for charging or for video out? (both mentioned earlier as a possibility).

      Creator Xavalon on February 10

      cregle,will the ipen2 certified by Apple through their MFi program as the ipen1 was? If include this in your production schedule you release tommorow.

      A lot of non certified adapters (especially with a lightning connector) either gave notification when connected or stopped working completely with IOS7. We don't want that to happen with a future IOS release.

      Re: Update We will release update on this Tuesday for production schedule.

      Re: App Support
      We will begin to ship samples to app developers at late Feb to early March. The initial supported apps will mostly our existing app partners back to iPen 1 including Goodnotes, Noteshelf, ibisPaint..etc. Sketch will likely be among our initial supported apps. In fact, iPen 2 is very powerful. We believe lots of app developers will work with us.

      @Evan: We have spent over $340K since we start iPen 2 from scratch on 04/2012. The FICP pre-order is part of the pledges in this project. The Fundable fund raising is just the loan, not investment. Our priority is to fulfill backer's pledge. And we are willing to take risky financing to ensure the completion of this project. So please understand we risk everything to make this project a reality. We're just as eager as you do to see the iPen 2 coming to life.

      @Alan: You will receive full refund through Amazon this Monday. Sorry for the delay.

      UPDATE???

    27. Missing_small

      Creator Xavalon on February 7

      Previous, they send the ipen1 one month earlier to backers then pre orders.
      But it could be that they gonna delay again for some weeks. Going to production false could still mean that it takes weeks before the first one could be shipped. Could also be that they will ship at the end of March. Shipping adds some extra days too.

      Hi. As stated in October, I wish to take you up on your offer of a Full Refund. I have sent the Amazon Payments Transaction ID number so you can process the Refund. I would appreciate it if you could take care of this soon. Thanks!
      As stated in my earlier email to you, due to the combination of the continued delays and the design changes, I had to purchase an alternative.

      @Cregle, Please, answer to our questions.

    33. Missing_small

      Creator Evan Mannweiler on February 5

      You raised $368,000 here, $260,000 on Fundable, you claim FICP pre-ordered $80,000 worth of iPen2's, you have claimed to have other private investors as well, its been a year and we haven't seen or learned almost anything.

      We've only seen it support one platform, though you've promised at least two. We haven't seen plans or demonstrations of the Mac model yet. You've had this much trouble tooling the iPad model, which I have to assume you'll repeat with the iMac model.

      It increasingly looks like you are building your own drawing app, which makes me question whether you have ANY app support for the device outside of that. I don't frankly see how you could have any app support without actually having your product designed.

      You don't acknowledge our questions. You don't give us updates that contain any actual information. You launch other product lines instead of the pen you should have. You don't seem to be capable of giving people refunds and you've acknowledged that you have problems with cash flow - what have you done with over $700,000? Certainly this isn't how the Georgetown MBA program teaches you to run a company, right?

      Yay? I guess Late February/Early March isn't looking good if you won't have samples until the end of February. In you update, I think a lot of us are expecting Once-And-For-All answers about which models and software you're supporting.

      Cregle is losing backers pretty fast over two issues: no support for the 30 pin model and a complete lack of transparency about not supporting it. Not addressing the issue is actually risking losing more backers than just cancelling that model. Cregle hasn't addressed nearly any of the questions the backers have put up, whether they are about technical issues, compatibility, timelines or reimbursements.

    47. Missing_small

      Creator Joshua Wells on January 30

      I am/was a backer for the 30-pin model whom you have violated your agreement with. I requested a refund on 1/6 and have still not received it. The lack of professionalism exhibited by Cregle is appalling. Please respond immediately with an explanation and a reimbursement plan.

      Creator Eng-Jon Ong on January 28

      @Luis... I think the unfortunate answer to your question is no, the ipen2 will not work on the ipad2. It will only work with the newer ipads. At least not the one that they will eventually ship out first anyway. In one of the updates, cregle has said that they will continue development on the ipen2 for the ipad *only* if they manage to get more money, from sales of ink, investors or ipen2.. to then continue developing for the ipad2. I was pissed with this (still am).. can you see how the current ipen2 was developed using funds for the ipad2 version.. only to have it not compatible with it (until some unforseen future)... so Cregle has effectively screwed all the ipad2 ipen2 backers over... sad but true.. regardless of how they want to spin it...

      It not just the lack of official updates, that I can understand, other kick starter projects also have delays, BUT they answer the questions on this comment section, and that shows both class and respect for your backers, you instead, ignore us, honestly that really ticks me off, you barely made it to your goal, and we were all very happy and invested on your idea, and now you act like our questions are meaningless, like our invested efforts to back you up mean nothing to you, maybe you got money for other investor, but honesty it appears as if you doing your utmost to keep your kick-starer backers unhappy If I was a business man I would try to keep my investors happy so they would invest in me again in the future; food for thought.
