SDK contest for Hacker Backers
Hacker backers, we’re looking for the best and most creative apps out there that use Range. Want to win internet fame and Supermechanical goodies? Now’s the time to develop an app using the latest version of the SDK — we’ll reward creativity, usability and looks.
Send us a link to try out your app (or a video) by May 14th, and we’ll pick the winner (with the help of the rest of the Kickstarter backers) and announce it in a Kickstarter update. In addition to internet fame and promotion of their apps. the winner will get one of the few remaining Milwid/Supermechanical aprons, with Range shirts going to any honorable mentions. Questions? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Not a hacker backer, but have a great idea for an app? Put it in a comment, and maybe a hacker backer who is looking for an idea will develop it for you!
We released v 1.1.1 of the Range app this week. New in 1.1 is physical pairing for remote alerts. The first time you plug a Range in after updating the app, you’ll be asked to name the Range. After that, any iOS device that you plug your Range into will get remote alerts — even if they aren’t on the same iCloud account. (All devices do need to be connected to the internet and running version 1.1 or higher of the Range app.)
Check out how easy it is here: Using remote alerts with Range from Supermechanical on Vimeo.
We’ve got another 1500 Ranges out at the fulfillment center being packaged right now — they’ll be shipped out tomorrow. If your Scooter account is marked as processing, you can expect an email with shipping confirmation in the next few days. Coals are the road block for many orders, but we’re making them and mailing them out as quickly as we can.
EU and iPod touch bug progress:
Unfortunately, we don’t have a solution yet, but our developer is hard at work on a fix. We’ll continue to keep you updated as we have more information for you. Thanks for your patience as we work to get Range up and running for everyone!
