The Producteev iPhone app : status, and more.

Hi everyone, Ilan here.

I just wanted to take a minute to talk about the iPhone app. A couple of people complained about the fact that our app is getting old, and doesn’t alway sync. You’re right on both fronts.

Getting old : why is it getting old? The reality is that we only have one (brilliant) iOS and Mac developer (for now), and he’s been working on the (successful) Mac app ever since the iPhone app has been released. The good news is that he started again baking the brand new, shiny and fast iPhone app V2 for a couple of months already, and it’s simply going be out of this world. Sneak peek :

I can’t give out any release date (even though it’s set), for PR purposes. More about this soon.

Sync:  When such a technologically complex app gets older, you find out about ‘bugs’ over time, and sync is one of them. What happens is that when a Producteev account is getting bigger and bigger, the iPhone app is having a hard time to sync it. This issue is obviously fixed in the new version, since we built a brand new sync engine. Again, having one developer on this platform is not always easy to manage, but that’ll change.

Overall, a lot of things will change in the next couple of weeks, since we’re obviously working on something big that involves A LOT of improvements, more platforms supported, and a couple of surprises.

We’ll open private betas seats soon, on a one-to-one basis.

Thanks all for your support in the meantime!
