Chime Squirrel Released!

September 27, 2012

Chime Squirrel has finally been approved for the Apple App Store. It is now available for purchase for $0.99!

I am very excited to finally get this app out, and even more excited to start collecting some feedback and see what you do with it and where you would like to see it go.

Alright down to business. Since the initial push to Apple was turned down, here are the new features that have been added to version 1.0.3:

  • Background notifications! Big feature, and it was already in the works when the app was first denied (we are trying to adopt a “release early and often” approach). It makes the app much more useful especially if you are using long intervals. One note: background notifications don’t go off if you lock the phone with the app open. This is an iOS 6 bug and a report has been filed with Apple. We are presently looking into a workaround. Until then make sure you press the home button before locking your phone.
  • UI overhaul. We redid all the wallpapers, made over the logo, moved navigation to the top of the display, and other little UI tweaks.

We have some great ideas for where we want to take things, but would love some feedback and opinions. Head over to the Support page or hit us up on Twitter.
