Version 1.1 of SlipBox mobile available

Version 1.1 of SlipBox mobile is now available via the iTunes App Store. It fixes the issue a few users were experiencing when syncing with the Dropbox server. As it turns out, the system time on some devices lags behind the time on the Dropbox server so much that it messed up the synchronisation.

Additional goodies of this version: German localisation and some tweaks of the user interface.

I also submitted a lite version of SlipBox mobile (which I’ll probably refer to as `SlipBox lite’ in the future) to Apple at the same time that I submitted this update. `Lite’ meaning, it’s free but limited to 20 slips per slip-box. No news on that yet, but it should become available pretty soon as well.

SlipBox mobile is now available on the App Store!

SlipBox mobile is now available for download on the Apple App Store (click here), and I just released my first press release! Hehe, exciting! (I’ll also put it online here soon, in case you’re curious.)

It took Apple a bit longer than the 7 days in which they claim to approve 95% of the submitted apps (8 days, to be precise). But that is still quite satisfactory.

The app will be available at half-price till the end of the week, that means until the 7th. [Insert your favourite call to act upon this announcement here.] Remember it’s just a click away! :*)

Preparing for SilpBox mobile: SlipBox 0.9.7 released

In anticipation of the release of the mobile version of SlipBox, I released an update of the desktop version yesterday, which is now at version 0.9.7. (I wonder how long it will take to get to 1.0 …) This a maintenance release with the main purpose of providing a seamless integration between the two versions. It also contains a number of bugfixes and smaller changes.

I submitted the mobile version to Apple a few days ago, so it should not be too long now before it will be available on the App Store (I hope). The mobile version will be a universal app for all iOS platforms: iPhone, iPod touch, iPad.

Concerning on how to name to the mobile version, I’ve now decided to simply call it SlipBox as well. When it is necessary to be more specific, there are the obvious options: SlipBox mobile, SlipBox touch, SlipBox iOS, SlipBox for iPhone/iPod touch/iPad (how about the last one, hehehe). The OS X version then might be SlipBox OS X, SlipBox for Mac, SlipBox desktop or similar.

Finally, some housekeeping: you can now comment on this blog, should you wish to do so.
