It’s been a crazy, wonderful week! So many amazing stories keep coming in with families all over the world using Whereoscope in ways we never would have guessed. From forest rangers thinking of emergency rescue to hardworking parents in Japan to young adults tracking their own life as they go travelling, the overwhelmingly positive response has just blown James and I away.
We did have some database issues due to server load early in the week, and we sincerely apologize for any inconvenience caused. We’re pretty sure the data has been recovered, but if something’s missing just drop us a line and we’ll do our very best to fix things.
I’m also really happy to announce that version 1.1 has now been approved on the Apple App Store!
This version has a handful of great new features:
- Adding places uses Google’s geocoder to auto-complete the address as you type it
- Set the radius of a place you add
- Inviting family members or friends auto-completes from your iPhone address book
If you know me, you’ll be able to guess that this means we’ve now submitted version 1.2 to the App Store. We’re really excited about 1.2 – more about that when it gets approved!
A lot of what we’ve been building has been directly driven from feedback we’ve received: e-mails, comments, reviews and phone calls. So don’t be shy, if you have problems or ideas, drop us a line.
