We’ve just put Wobble HD on sale for $0.99 down from its usual price of $4.99.
Get it today!
Last week we launched a new feature with Full Screen Wobbles, unfortunately a small bug was introduced by a tiny little change after we had done our usual round of testing.
Testing was performed using various devices:
- Apple devices: iPod 2G/3G/4G, iPhone 3G/3Gs/4G, iPad 1G/2G with various iOS versions.
- Android devices: Samsung Galaxy S GT-I9000 (Android 2.1), Samsung Galaxy Tab (Android 2.2), Samsung Nexus S (Android 2.3.1), Motorola Droid X (Android 2.2), HTC Gratia A6380 (Android 2.2), HTC G1 (Android 2.1).
Anyway, what happened? The incompatibility issue with wobbles saved in previous Wobble versions was caused by a last-minute fix. In the final QA iteration we found a few minor issues with sharing wobbles, and we had to change the format of shared wobbles. The format of shared wobbles is not directly related to saving wobbles locally, but this change indirectly affected the wobble saving functionality and caused the error in loading saved wobbles.
Not knowing about this bug… this new version was uploaded, and I waited for the inevitable 5 star reviews on our brand new feature… what… 1 star?? oh noes – bug… panic!
Software team was notified and we had a bug fix within a few hours, then an email to Apple to test our friendship “Can you please approve this new version like now?” Apple were very helpful, and sent me this:
“Thank you for contacting us to request an expedited review for your apps. We now have a Request an Expedited App Review form <http://developer.apple.com/appstore/contact/appreviewteam/index.html> available through the App Store Resource Center for making these requests.
And they approved it within 24 hours – great! Really happy with their process – they sure have come a long way in 2.5 years.
And yes, then the 5 Star reviews did start rolling in – all is right with the world we can get back to the serious business of Wobbling boobs
(Features coming next week – Android live Wallpaper – this one is great! Pin code protection for Wobbles – *finally* I hear you scream… oh and a few surprises!
