Happy One Week Old!

It's been 7 days since we hit the app store and it seems like a good time to commemorate it with a short blog post. 

But first, Themed Cake to celebrate a full 7 days!

Continuing on with some thanks...

Thank you everybody who has downloaded ChalkPrint and given feedback. Thank you people who have shared news of us on social media including Sublime Climbing's awesome Instagram shout out

... And some thoughts on the future

When it comes to any of the apps we love, we like to know what's coming and what just happened in the last release. Here's a brief preview of what's coming next. 

What's next for the app?

Right now we are working on creating user accounts and setting up online storage of climbing data. It's a vital step in building the best climbing tracker available. 

With that in place we can begin looking at interpreting your climbing and helping you make sense of it, all part of our slogan: "Comprehend your climbing". 

And we'll look at Android as soon as we're able. Some of our dearest friends are Android users and they mention the lack of an Android version every time we see them. 

How about the website?

We're looking at ways of generating revenue. There are some products we love to use and will write about them soon. Sometimes the products we talk about will be associated with an affiliate program and we'll let you know that we will get paid if you buy a product through a link on our page. 

If you have the app and want to help support the development of new features, the "More..." tab gives you two options: $.99 a month or $10 a year. Subscriber only features will come soon but you'll be locked into this price forever while you're helping cover the cost of development. Software takes time to write and every little bit helps. 

The website and this blog will talk about some of our principles and considerations when we plan the future of ChalkPrint. We'll talk about the reasoning behind decisions that have been made already. 

 

Thanks for being here,

Nicholas Kinloch
