Dark Sky is Go!

Hello backers!

Thanks to you all, we did it! Dark Sky is available in the iTunes App Store right now:

Each of you should have already received an email with a link to download the app; if you haven't, please contact us and we'll get it sorted out. We've already received some early bug reports, and we have an update pending Apple's approval right now to resolve most, if not all, of the issues.

As for the other reward tiers, we apologize for being behind! There was a problem getting some of the t-shirts printed, but that's being resolved now and we'll have everything in the mail as quickly as we can.

So, this phase of Dark Sky will be drawing to a close very soon, but it's not the end of the road: we have a lot we'd like to continue to do with Dark Sky, not the least of which will be adding support for additional regions. If you want to stay up to date on our progress, be sure to follow us on Twitter, if you're not already:

Once again, we can't express our thanks enough to you, since without your support this app never would have gotten this far. We love each and every one of you.

-- Jack, Adam, and Jay

      Had not received the code. Was searching the Kickstarter page and found the statement re: contact about this. I recently received the T-shirt, but when I reviewed my e-mails before and since the "Survey" [Survey sent: 02/23/12 • "Your response">"Submitted: on February 23"]. I would appreciate knowing how to go about obtaining my "Dark Sky" app.

      I am from Sweden and unfortunately the iTunes redeem code is only valid for the US. Need a "quick fix" on that.

      I'm a french backer and unfortunately the iTunes redeem code is only valid for the US. Can you fix that fast? We are having a lot of rain showers and hailstorms at the moment in Paris. It seems to be a good time to evaluate your promising work.

      Never got the code! (I did miss the survey, sent it in last week...)

      I believe it's a great apps for produce growers and I am happy to a backer but unfortunately iTunes will not allow download in Canada!

      I purchased a copy for wife, looks great. I never got my code or link to download my copy though.
      Also, no shirt?

      Oh hell, never mind! I supported this, but didn't select to preorder a copy, so I'll go head on over to iTunes and buy one myself! (Blushes)

      FYI: Didn't get my code yet.

      Very cool. At first it seemed to be stuck on "loading" on my iPad, but a tap seemed to get things going.

      I was much disappointed to find that DarkSky does not work on my 3GS iPhone! Phooey!

      I know the app only works in the US, but can it be downloadable outside the US App Store? I'd like to use it when I visit the US but my iTunes account is set to the UK store.
