Wake Up and Smell the Space Age

Smell it man2009 is nearing its end and space is getting hot again. Its basically a cyclical phenomenon. Space, dinosaurs, skateboard, hockey, and knights. Now we’re back in the space age.

Anyway as you all know our last app release, Nattstad, was a raging success and we’re now working hard on the second coming of Jesus, a.k.a Project Mustang 2. Have you guys seen Google Goggles? The Norwegian Yellow pages? Virgin Galactic? Yep, the bar for space age apps is rising. But like Stefan Holm in “På spåret” we’re going to show these clowns how it’s done. Stay tuned space apes.

Friday madness

It’s hot in the wardrobe right now, but soon we’re gonna make it boiling! Your favorite developers are currently drinking champagne and listening to Five (Slam dunk da funk baby!), but don’t worry we are still doing awesome stuff.

Knocking Vid

Sooo, what’s this weeks hot topic? Well, i don’t know if you have heard, but apparently Steve Jobs (yep, that guy who looks like an old, bald and taller Tom Cruise) has approved  an app that was initially rejected. No, I’m not going to rant about if this is a good thing or not, instead I will spend some precious blog space on writing about the app, Knock Me Up Live.

What?

The idea is pretty cool. With the help of this app and your iPhone, you are able to send live video to friends, family and fan boys. Sounds nice, eh? Well, it could have been, but this shit is a major fuck app. The first thing you have to do is create an account, which you can do from the app. I really like functionality like this, when you can do everything from the app.

But that’s the problem with this app, functionality. I hate it when it doesn’t work. And when you’re not notified that something went wrong I’m on the verge of going nuclear on my iPhone. How hard could it be? You could give me a damn alert saying “Houston, we have a problem” or any other lame message, just give me something.  Well, after restarting, shaking, and recharging my iPhone, computer and mind I finally had an account and was logged in.

Great! Let’s doris, let’s knock someone!

Testing

One wonderful thing about the app is its use of Push Notification. You can start a live video feed and stream it to someone whenever you want, and they will be notified and can launch the app. Functionality like this gives me a boner, and sweet memories of times listening to Aerosmith. Damn, it’s good. Or not…

The receiver’s iPhone is generating some nice knocking sounds and the app says “Connecting” or something. Only problem is that it still says “knocking” on my phone. So how the hell am I supposed to know if it works? Thank god for the Time Out, otherwise I probably still would be sitting there trying to connect.

After trying a couple of times (185, maybe?) I got it to work one time, and only for a couple of seconds. But I guess I’m just retarded and don’t know how to use it. After all, iPhone apps are supposed to be hard to get and only work if you have epic Emacs skillz.

Thanks Steve, for approving this great app. I can honestly not think of a world without it, it’s so fucking great. Maybe you can send me a video where you explain how to get it to work? But it’s not all bad. The idea is nice and it’s free..

Aah, now I see! This is yet another scheme from Apple. By accepting a lot of worthless apps that are free, maybe more people will buy apps! Fucking genius dudes, I love you.  Oh by the way, get a fucking spell checker and run it before you send an app to the App Store.

Wrap up

But I still love the idea, just imagine how fun you can have. Knocking people while you are peeing drunk, spying on them when they are surfing the web or hunting space invaders. But I wouldn’t be surprised if people will use it solely for rickrolling friends. Wake up nerds, it’s 2009, find a new hobby!

What now..?

The dawn came and, as our eyes angrily got used to the bright light, we saw the future.  And it looks like we are in for a helluva ride. All over the world people are picking up the debris of yesterdays eruption, and holy god do they love it!

omiPhone.se – “Det som är lite extra häftigt är att man implementerat Push Notification till Nattstad på iPhone. Det betyder att du direkt får veta när något händer på Nattstad. Det här har faktiskt inte ens Facebook implementerat än av okänd anledning.”

gp.se – “Nu har Nattstad släppt en iPhone-app. Och den är riktigt bra, med push-notifieringar och möjlighet att lägga upp bilder inifrån programmet.”

Hoel, kille 21 år – “Helt jävla underbar app! Funkar perfekt…”

But it ain’t over yet, we are working on a new project that will blow your mind! If Goose was the Ben Hur of apps, then this is the USS Enterprise, ready to help you boldly go where…well..at least you haven’t been before. I’m sure it will cure Fred Durst’s kolpophobia, he will surely want to caress this monster full-time when it comes out. Stay tuned for more awesomness coming really soon!

New App: Nattstad

Finally it’s out in the wild, our new monster app! This baby has been in the making for a while, but gosh it’s beautiful! There is so much you can do, and it’s almost as if it’s is giving you a massaging manicure while you are exploring it’s depth and inner chambers. God damn this app rocks, can’t wait until Limp Bizkit releases their new album and Fred Durst will serenade it on every damn song!

Nattstad is the swedish Facebook, but instead of ugly pimpleheads and annoying parents, your friends will be the hottest girls and boys, waiting for you at the most awesome bars and night clubs. Finally you will have the chance to enjoy the life you’ve seen on Gossip Girl. Check out the most daring blogs, pictures from the craziest parties and read up on what’s going on in Your town.

What are you waiting for? Roll over to the App Store and download this crazy mf and party hard!

What the hell is that…?

God it’s beautiful….but what could it be? A new beginning? The start of the internet phase out? A safe haven for brats and teenage mothers? Something to write home about?

Where am I?

Spaceshuttle

What’s going on? Why does this look like a “blog”? Why is there no new content?

Have you guys ever even seen space?

Wait… there is something on the horizon. Something is coming now!

Some kind of huge… what is it? Where am I?

OH SHI–––––
