A Big Thank You Apple!

During the last days we where on a trip through south Germany and while working on reLive I recognized some strange display flickering problems on my device that seemed to originate from some hardware defect. On thursday I went to the local Apple Store and asked for help. I showed them the strange behavior and told them about the plan to present reLive for iOS on an event next day. They where very helpful and quickly arranged a date with a genius. He checked my device and offered me a replacement instead of trying to fix it in my device, to make sure I have a working device for my date. We exchanged devices after I flushed my data and I was back on track!

Thank you for not telling me to go to my telephone provider where I got my device from or to the store near my home address in the north of Germany when returning from my trip, but helping me out with a quick solution. I have a long history of devices from different brands and quite some trouble with some of them, but never got help that quickly and easily.

First Ad-Hoc Preview Release of reLive for iOS

Quite shortly after the first versions of reLiveQt I wanted to have an iOS client too, and I started working on it some time ago, but I didn’t really have enough time to bring it into a state where it would be actually usable. It was around Evoke 2012 where I finally was able to stream shows and read the chat and have a first version with me that some interested people could have a look at on that party. But as I started to work for a new company last year, with a cool fascinating project, not much time was left for finishing up the application, so I was the only one using it for myself. Now, over half a year later, I prepared the first preview release v0.7 to selected users (at the known place or in your inbox), so the real release is coming closer!
