New Reward Levels - Boast

Backers,

In the last few hours of this Kickstarter, we've added a few new levels, mainly built for retail or backers with many iPads.

Feel free to modify your pledge so you can take advantage of the new levels!

Thanks!

What a weekend!

Backers,

What a crazy weekend! I was lucky enough to have a dreary, rainy weekend here in Columbia, SC, so more time to hang out at home and use the Boast. I had never used it in the kitchen, but I had a full course in how to cook Miso Ramen, and still could hear the iPad over all the kitchen noise!

I'm going to update the FAQ with some of the more frequent questions I'm getting, but for you guys, I'll personally answer here:

Q: "Will the Boast work with my case?"

A: Unfortunately we were unable to test every case out there (there are tons.) but as long as there is clearance around the speaker so the Boast can connect with the magnets, I see no reason it shouldn't work. It might not work as cleanly without a case, but we can't guarantee that every case will work.

Q:"What a steal, only a buck! How are you going to reach the funding level like that?!"

A: "Well, that comes down to you. If you'll notice, if every backer in the pay what you wish tier pledges $14, we won't even come close to the funding level. If you'd like to get a Boast for a discounted rate, share with your friends, family, blogs and tech sites. You can copy this simple URL to share with everyone: http://kck.st/Sr2ErW

Thanks so much, and please keep sharing!

Boasting,

Nick
