Holy Cow -- We did it!
It's a Thanksgiving Miracle! Over the weekend we surpassed our funding goal, thanks to all of your ludicrously awesome support.
Over a thousand of you pre-ordered a copy of Dark Sky. The fact that you were willing to drop cold hard cash on an unfinished product (even though many of you don't even have an iOS device, or live outside the United States) is absolutely amazing. Jack put together an outtake reel from our Kickstarter video that I think properly expresses how we feel:
But we've still got a couple days left!
We have been inundated with requests over the past month for an Android version of Dark Sky. Hundreds of people (many of them backers) have contacted us wondering when we'd bring Dark Sky to their phones. The thing is, we're iOS guys... we've never developed Android apps, and neither of us has an Android device. Our plan was to start with the iOS version and use it's success to branch out to other platforms in the future.
But here's the deal: If we can get to $45k in the next 2 1/2 days, we'll use the extra funds to bring on an Android developer to work on the Android version starting from day one. How's that?
