Persistence Pays Off
Hey XY backers, just want to let everyone know that after 6 rounds of rejections, our iOS app has been approved by Apple. We can hardly believe it ourselves. :-D
For various reasons, we are not making the app available to the general public until we ship (in about 2-3 weeks), but we are releasing (via AppStore redemption codes) to beta testers and other interested parties. Please ping us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like to check it out.
Android app is on track for (beta) release the week of August 15. We will have a separate update toward the end of next week, but before anyone asks -- we are still committed to supporting all 4.3+ devices.
On the production side, it looks like the factory will finish a few days early, August 7th to be precise. However, we may ask for another round of production samples, mainly to check colors, so it could get delayed back to mid-August. We'll let you know.
We are getting to the final weeks before we deliver the "jewel". It's been a crazy ride; we are sleep deprived, anxious and a bit giddy with excitement. Thanks for supporting us and hanging in there with us.
