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!

End of month status report

Hi there citizens of the internets!

Another month has gone and Michael Jackson is still awesome! If you know a girl or guy that is more awesome add a song or two to our playlist. Sooo, what’s going on in the wardrobe? Well…

Hultsfred 09

Oooh yeah, the beast is loose. Based on the awesome platform G.O.O.S.E (yes, THE Ben Hur of apps) it will give the festivalgoers a reason to bring their favorite fart apps to the festival, so watch out all y’all! Read more here or why not read omiphone.se:s amazing review.The response has been tremendous and comedian/gumma Karin Adelsköld named it one of favourite technologies for event organizers.

Seedcamp

The month started out with Mini Seedcamp Helsingborg. You can read more about this in our longer blog post about the event, which is more detailed than a Carcass song, so I will just write a short bit here. It was Awesome!!!

The Rolling Narwhal

We have been looking for a car for a while and found a really nice one outside Göteborg, a VW Bus from 1971. But while we spent our time dreaming about the maiden voyage (a trip to Bangkok), someone bought it so if you know of any RV for sale, give us a meaningful collection of letters in the comments.

Seedcamp, Pirate Bay and Fred Durst

I'm fine with Sweden becoming a police state, as long as it's policegirls

I'm fine with Sweden becoming a police state, as long as it's policegirls

The last couple of days have been awesome in the wardrobe. Lots of late night coding sessions, lusty eye contacts and great feedback from people. Your contributions to our playlist has provided us with enormous amounts of energy. Project Goose looks fantastic. Really really awesome. Vastly superior to similar products. Heck of an app. Greatest love of all. La coupa de vida. Yeah, it really is the Ben Hur of apps.

So what else is going on and what’s up with that picture to the left? Well, Sweden is becoming a police state and we really hope they want an app to help them supress “folket” (usually fat guys with pimples and “moppemusch”). I think we could help them, since we are awesome and girls with gasmasks are awesome. Just look at them! A comment on the Pirate Bay vs. the Big, Greedy Corporations Trial might be in order. even thought they got convicted I think they will be freed or at least get a lesser verdict as they crawl upp the juridical stairs toward the highest court ( God!!). But if they still have to do some time in jail I hope they watch out, there are a lot of seeders in male prisons and it’s a tough time for a leecher.

Oh, speaking about seeding reminded me of something. We have been chosen as one of the finalists to Mini Seedcamp in Helsingborg! Next week we’ll take the RV south to showcase Project Goose and socialize with the elite. We are super excited about this, been looking at fellow finalists products and all we can say is awesooome and WTF?!?! Looking forward to this, but suddenly we only have a week to bring out the first version of Project Goose AND make a flashy powerpoint presentation with lots of animations.

In other news we still haven’t heard from Apple regarding Project Jester, seriously what’s up with that? Fred Durst would go nuts on Twitter if it happened to him. Post lots of TwitPic-links of knights, shoes and guys looking thirty years older than they are. Hope they will respond soon, since I don’t have a revolver and I’m not that keen on getting one.

Working vs. Blogging

Sorry the updates here at the development blawgh haven’t been very frequent recently. We’ve been spending our time pushing that Project Goose out whatever orifice it’s supposed to eventually emerge from. And it’s going great. The plan is to be more or less done in the beginning of May and then start working on our list of other projects. But Goose is truly the Ben Hur of apps. A new kind of marriage between reality and cyberspace. In fact it’s so cutting edge I’d call it a gay marriage. We’ll have a lot more info for you in the coming weeks.

In the meantime, please buy our groundbreaking apps Bang/Buck and iQüeüe. Project Jester was Too Hot For the App Store™ initially but we’re working on watering it down for the general public. More as this develops.

And to everyone who think our Spotify playlist is your personal junk heap for music you don’t want to listen to yourself: please stop it. This playlist is the midwife for our creative genius. Only put high-caliber “pepp music” on there. Thanks.

Also don’t forget to check out our Flickr photostream and Twitter for more day-to-day updates about your favorite awesome iPhone development team.

End of the month status report

Project Mustang

Project Mustang is done, and will  soon ship to the big guys. We are pretty sure that this one will be a friggin’ Jesus for everybody, since we are in some kind of global financial crisis. A superb UI, some great features and a awesome rating of about all you can think of, this little tool will kick some asses and stir up the competition for sure. We have given it a name, and soon you will wake up in the middle of a release party with “stekarlökar” in your armpits. Our marketing division has come up with a strategy, so we are super excited about this.

Project Jester

A couple of weeks ago we gave the developers a big shiny green light to start a new project, Project Jester. References to popular culture (oh yeah, we got culture, baby) and a user experience beyond Sci-Fi, we will take social gaming to a new level and give everybody a chance to try something that they’ve been longing for the last 30 years. Jester is still a nasty bugger with lots of things to add, but we hope to throw it to the wolves soon.

Project Goose

Oh, this baby is f—ing huge. The Ben Hur of apps. We are still playing around with ideas, but you will surely want tap this one when it is ready.
