Back in mid 2009 I was miffed at how awkward it was to use EG on my shiny iPhone 3. I made myself an app to make reading reviews and browsing the forum on the loo easier. It worked well and I decided to send EG a few images to see if they'd allow me to publish it on the appStore for others to use. |
On the loo.
I was surprised when they said "Sure". They worked with me and together we released several iterations of the app and you guys have used it over 3 million times to date. 3 million times!
The new EG site is no longer a struggle to use on a mobile device. It's great. So we're sun setting the iOS app as of today.
This means the app will no longer be available in the appStore or supported by EG or myself. You can still use it of course. It will most lightly work just fine for quite some time but I'll no longer be providing support if it all goes belly up.
It's been a pleasure working on the app. EG have been magnificent to work with and if they hadn't taken a chance on me back in 2009 then I wouldn't be now doing this for a living.
Thanks EG and thanks to you all for using, breaking, testing, moaning, reviewing etc the app over the years.
See you at the EXPO!
Here's the first images I sent to EG followed by the latest version of the app: !
P.s. Making this a sticky for a little so folk who want to continue using the app notice and are reminded to backup their apps.
