Stickyboard Sneak Peek: Email PDF

by qrayon 6. May 2010 07:14


This has been a top hotly requested feature by our beta testers since day one. We’re happy to announce that the feature is now ready and will be in the next major update. What do you think of the icon?


We wrestled between choosing to implement different means for sharing Stickyboard content, including file-sharing via iTunes, sending images, and integrating with upload sites like Flickr. Our internal testing found email to be far and away the most convenient method that we chose to use daily. Our iPads are always connected via WiFi, and rarely docked with iTunes. To be honest, we struggled quite a bit to use the file-sharing feature on other Apps. It’s not very easy to find or use on the current version of iTunes.

Emails in contrast are fire-and-forget. Sending them from in the app feels very much like a slightly fancier save-as dialog. Emails are also a very convenient way to archive boards that go through successive changes, like our scheduling boards. They server as an official record of what was agreed upon at a given time.

What file-sharing features do you find you use the most on iPad apps? What has been your experience?

We hope to have this out and in your hands within a couple of weeks (that’s the nature of working with the Apple review and deployment pipeline). We are also working on a couple of other really cool features that will be out soon. Stay tuned!

Apps We Love: WeatherBug

WeatherBug Elite for iPad

Apple curiously decided to leave out several widget apps from the iPad that were available on the iPhone, including: Weather, Stocks, and a Clock. Well, for the weather category, WeatherBug fills the void and then some. I don’t know if I ever felt the need for gratuitous Doppler Radar information at my finger tips, but now that I have it I’m not complaining!

Favorite feature: Tapping on the 6-day forecast shows detailed blow-by-blow accounts of what to expect.

Get it here: WeatherBug (on the App Store)

It’s getting close! We plan to submit the final build this weekend, which means that Quarter Shuffle should be available in the App Store as early as next week if all goes well. It’s been a fun journey getting to this point, and we are looking forward to sharing it with the rest of you.

Quarter Shuffle is the first game we’re releasing for the iPad, and doing it has been quite an eye opener to the platform for us. The iPad is going to be a game-changer (pardon the pun) for gaming. I don’t believe it’s going to replace other more portable gaming devices like the Nintendo DS and PSP, nor will if ever compete directly with console gaming. What it’s going to do is enable completely new, yet unseen, genres of games.

Quarter Shuffle is based on a relatively simple theme, but it is a game that could only have been created for the iPad. We have begun to only scratch the surface of multi-touch gaming. No doubt other teams of talented developers are working on their own masterpieces at this very moment. I’m personally looking forward to the day when we have a full-blown RTS on the iPad, but what will be more exciting are all the new genres of games that are now possible.
