The Habit Factor® – v. 1.5 on its way!

The early success of The Habit Factor® for iPhone has been extraordinary. The emails and comments from users keep coming. This comment just came in today; Tue, Aug 25, 2009 at 10:40 AM from Steven L.

Thank you for creating this wonderful application. It gives me satisfaction to check off daily items that brings me closer to my goals.  It is becoming an indispensable part of my life.

“An indispensable part of my life.” Wow! Fantastic! That does not suck.

Steven went on to make a feature request for the app re: a weekly overview.

So, the point of this post is to simply say THANK YOU and ask YOU to keep the emails and features requests coming. We are listening to all comments and reviews. (Side note: I wish Apple would incorporate a feature where developers/publishers could respond to user reviews within iTunes).

Anyhow, thanks once again and our developers ask you to please keep in mind this is still only just the beginning. This is only version 1.xx of the app. We just unveiled The Habit Factor® mid June. So, you can expect it will be your feedback that will help this best-selling app to mature and fuel our developers creativity.

Having said that, it makes sense now to tell your friends to score the app while its on sale as the new version/upgrade will be free for those who’ve already purchased the app.

Until next time,

Bucket List PRO – She’s ALIVE!

Born to be wild. Live to outgrow it.

Bucket List PRO   Ver. 1.0 (Born for adventure on 8.3.09)

Well, from inception to iTunes, Bucket List PRO has been it’s own great life experience. A real adventure.

After upload to Apple for approval, we waited a few weeks then received a “rejected” status due to a strange API issue that even confused our developers. Once that was sorted, we waited another few weeks. Then, finally, the app went “LIVE” but, wait… that’d be too easy. It didn’t actually go live-live!? Yes, as luck would have it, iTunes was having issues and what typically takes 4 hrs once you get the “Live” status turned into 30 hrs plus before our bouncing baby, B.List PRO showed her face in iTunes.

Ben (see Virtues app) would be proud. How patient we have been.

So there you have it folks, Bucket List PRO. While all of our Apps have been very fun to conceive, design, build, use and test. The real joy comes from user feedback. Yes! After all this time  – we’re eagerly anticipating your feedback.

NOTE:
There is an immediate issue out of the gate with the twitter link which is designed to update/share your progress with your B.List item. At the same time the update shares a hyperlink meant to direct readers back to the app to check it out. The link currently does not work. This affects us not really the user. The user updates work to Twitter nicely.

Stay tuned for more Equilibrium fun!
