New Hardware Coming Soon!

If you’ve ever wanted to invest in a super successful project you will have your chance in the next month when we release the first of our hardware projects.

I’m keeping it under wraps for the moment, but we’ll be on Kickstarter in about 2 weeks. Delivery of the new device will be in time for the Holidays – so keep about $100 spare – you will love this one!

Oh, and while I’m on the subject of investing – you can make a few bucks with Appbackr too, we’re releasing 50,000 Android Wobble Premium apps into the wild – you make a pretty good return – Appbackr is a pretty cool system, worth a look.

Stay Tuned!

Wobble Updates Soon

Wobble iBoobs has been cruising along very nicely for over two years now, with well over a million installs and income of more than $500,000 in that time. time to give it a bit of a poke and see if we can get back into the charts!

We’ve been working on some other projects but have now decided to bring Wobble up to date, with a big list of improvements.

Last year we launched 3D and the HD versions which saw a large number of downloads and updates… for our next trick we’re adding all the features which users have ever suggested :-) plus some innovative new ideas and control functions that are pretty entertaining.

It’s also time for a revamp, we’ve engaged IconFactory to give Wobble a bit of a tart up, and I think you’ll like what we have in store!

It’s quite interesting to note that Wobble for iOS sells more in a day that Wobble for Android makes in a month, Android users either can’t or just don’t buy Apps. Market share is one thing but if the users don’t buy apps; I can’t see the point of developing for Android?

Wobble Back in the Charts! Yay!

Wobble was apparently featured on  Japanese TV over the weekend, although I haven’t seen the show it must have been good! :-)

TBS, (Tokyo Broadcasting System) featured Wobble on a show called, “Kakumei TV” (Revolutionary TV in English) which airs once a week nationwide in Japan.

“The show introduces various new things, from new inventions such as machines, games, robots, etc. that would become a role in bringing about a revolution to our future.” said the producer Miyuki Tachibana

I can tell you that the sales figures from this jump back up the charts are somewhat higher than last time Wobble was in the charts in Japan. It’s great timing too for all the lovely people that have bought Wobble – they get an awesome update in a few days – I think we have finally fixed the problems that Apple had this time with the apps, we removed an in app sales feature and will address it separately, release is imminent.

Wobble for iPad is also going to be released at the same time, as well as Wobble Free – all feature updates for iOS4.2 and a few tweaks, PLUS an awesome new secret feature. :-)

Wobble is at number 48 overall and number 7 in Entertainment in the Japanese Appstore.

Still waiting WOBBLE

My oh my, this must be hard… We’ve added a small feature and Apple have taken a month so far to release an update to our customers?

Plus we’ve updated to iOS version 4.1 – long overdue.

We uploaded updates for approval on 14th October – one month ago!

Apple apparently control all this to improve user experience – well if you have an iOS 4.1 device you currently can’t run Wobble if you already bought it, or buy it if you didn’t. FRUSTRATING.

About Blabr

OK, so what and why is Blabr?

The Blabr iPhone App (also blabr.com ) is an innovative audio sharing app, to start with we decided to go with a short 5 second limit, because it is mainly aimed at photo and place sharing within Facebook and Twitter. Blabr also allows short private back and forth chat.

We’ve thought most listeners within these sharing environments would prefer short meaningful messages rather than long winded one way voice messages. Have you ever had someone leave a 5 or 10 minute voicemail? I have, and I didn’t listen to it! I can see that if you wanted to do a voice interview or record a lecture you might want longer than 5 seconds, we may offer an upgrade in the future, but I doubt it will ever be unlimited. Anyway most people simply dont do interviews, more importantly their friends don’t want to hear them! We think a short description of a photo or a place is useful.

Blabr.com and the iPhone app are in version 1 having been released a couple weeks ago, so the UI is being tweaked after user feedback along with some server tweaks to up the scalability and performance before promotion of the service begins.

A public API and several cool demo apps will be launched in Jan/Feb

blabr – Now Available Worldwide

The New blabr app. Record 5 seconds of sound and send it via Twitter, Facebook or email – or of course to other blabr users. You will be able to increase recording time in the future, when it is out of beta. Plus a Voice Messaging API is coming soon too, so you can add voice notes to anything!

Strange Delays in Appstore Approvals

Wobble Premium is live in the store and has been for months – almost years… FREE updates have been uploaded to Apple in the past and approved quickly – and our usehave loved the free updates – just like they will when these updates are approved.

However, they have all been delayed for no apparent reason…

The new versions of Wobble were uploaded a week before the new blabr App. And whilst blabr was approved yesterday, Wobble has been in review for more than 2 weeks. Wobble has been in the Appstore now for 18 months, and has recently been updated for iOS 4.1 and a new feature was added – which whilst innovative and highly original doesn’t do anything that Apple should find disturbing. I’ve been instructed to keep this new feature under wraps until it’s approved so it isn’t copied!

On another note – how about that Victoria Secret App heh? If that isn’t a prurient I don’t know what is… of course it’s a bit hard to sell lingerie without “steamy hot” pictures, but it’s also hard to sell an App that Wobbles stuff without you know, wobbling stuff… Gotta wonder why the VS app is in entertainment section and promotes the unlocking of “content” when it is just a sales app? huh??

It would be really nice if Apple approved the new versions of Wobble before the Japanese TV show features it next week… yep it’s being featured on TBS, Tokyo Broadcasting System, in a show called, “Kakumei TV” (Revolutionary TV in English) which airs once a week nationwide in Japan.

“The show introduces various NEW things, from new inventions such as machines, games, robots, etc. that would become a role in bringing about a revolution to our future.

That’s a quote from the TV producer – I can’t wait to see what they make of Wobble – it was number one in Japan for a few months last year, so they love the app – it’s a pity that Apple doesn’t recognise Wobble as an app that “brings about a revolution in our future” as well 😉


Here’s the notes on each App and how long it has taken to get through the approval process…

Wobble HD – Apple rejected it saying it was the same as the other Wobble apps – except of course it is the HD version for the iPad (that’s why it’s called Wobble HD!)… 
We’ve completed the review of your app, however, because it duplicates the content and functionality of your app Wobble Premium, which is currently available on the App Store, we cannot post it app to the App Store.
2.11   Apps that duplicate apps already in the App Store may be rejected, particularly if there are many of them.

It was resubmitted on October 22 – the day after blabr was uploaded.

Wobble for Android Coming

We’re about 50% complete with Wobble for Android, so stay tuned for Wobbling goodness on the Android platform.

Just need to discuss some copyright issues on that store – a few apps are using our ideas directly – but worse they have lifted our design and graphics!

A job for the legal department I guess, unless they want to sell for a reasonable price.
