Phonejoy Game Discovery App Released
While we are still waiting for the factories in Shenzhen to open up shop in two weeks again, we have some positive news to share!
Our iPhone app has finally been approved by Apple and the Phonejoy app is now available on the App Store. It will give you a good idea about games that are compatible with iCade as well as the new MFi Game Controller Standard. Apart from that, we'd appreciate if you could already have a peek at it and give us some valuable feedback, so that by the time we ship it will do all the most important things you'd like to see.
As promised we are launching the Phonejoy app on Android as a beta. The Android app will have some advanced functionalities as it can actually talk with your Phonejoy, therefore it's been taking us a little longer than the iOS app to develop. Nevertheless, it does already everything that the iOS app does and much more will follow. If you want to test-drive our Android app. Please send us a message on Kickstarter or via firstname.lastname@example.org, and we'll send you an invitation to the beta group.
After two months of absence, we have resurrected the forums on phonejoy.com. This time your forum account will be completely integrated with your phonejoy.com account (which also allows you to view your shipping information). If you have any troubles logging in, just send us an email.
Later next week we'll post an unboxing video that will show you all the things that you will find in your Phonejoy box when it arrives. :)
In two weeks then production in China will resume, and we are firmly planning on showcasing additional behind-the-scenes videos and photos of the process. Meanwhile, we haven't forgotten about the MFi version, we are in the process of resubmitting our revised design to Apple in hopes that they will approve it.
