Beta Testers Wanted
Thorough beta testing is the only sure way to avoid unleashing a technological apocalypse, so I’m looking for a few iOS savvy people interested in testing a new app for iPad and iPhone. Best candidates will have had some testing experience (TestFlight), but you need to have iOS7 installed on your device. The app we’re testing, Art:101, is an art history study tool, so any art knowledge you can bring to the table would be appreciated as well. You can learn more about it on our website. Beta testers will get a free copy of the app when we release it later this Fall (priced at $9.99). If you are interested, send an email or contact me through my ask box with the kind of device you have and any relevant experience. Thanks so much!

SXSW is right around the corner and—if the robots don’t rise up to destroy us first—it looks like this year might be the busiest yet (including a few Tumblr events). My wife and I created an iPhone app called Thinx Drinks to keep track of all the unofficial parties and day shows going on and to help get around the city during the festival. If you’re coming to Austin for SXSW, it’s available free from the App Store. And let us know if you’ll be around, we’d love to meet up with you. 

staceythinx:

As some of you might know, my husband and I live in Austin. One of the great things about living in Austin is that you can take advantage of all the fun stuff that surrounds SXSW every spring. Last year we designed a mobile site to help us get around all the free parties and unofficial events that were going on and it was so helpful we thought that this year we’d share it with everybody as a full-blown mobile app. We’re really proud to announce that Thinx Drinks is now available in the iTunes App Store and its totally free!

Some of the app features:

  • Nearby feature shows all the parties and events near your current location, plotted on a map for easy navigation.
  • Browse events by date or use the searchable database to find events by name, band, or venue.
  • The My Parties feature lets you mark your favorites for quick reference later.
  • RSVP from many events from within the app.
  • Other features include social media and iOS Calendar integration. The app syncs to information stored the cloud to give you up-to-date listings.

I hope you find it as helpful as we do and hopefully I’ll see some of you around town!

So the launch of our Cassini HD app this past weekend went far better than we could have ever imagined. The response was totally unexpected and a little overwhelming. People can be pretty awesome sometimes. It gives me hope that maybe we’ll find a way to avoid the looming robopocalypse.

Keeping watch on the robot menace is pretty much a full time job around here, but if you’ve been following along you’ll know that in my off hours I have been working with my wife to develop an app for iPad called Cassini HD. Well, it is finally available in the iTunes App Store and you can download it for free today only before the regular price of $1.99 kicks in. We’ve gotten some very nice reviews so far and we’d appreciate you leaving us feedback on the iTunes store. 
Happy discovering!
