Warcode on the App Store!

Hey everyone!

Warcode went live on the App Store yesterday as some of you may have noticed, and it’s been a huge success so far 🙂 Thanks everyone who have downloaded it and extra thanks to all who bought the full version.

The most frequent feedback we’re getting is 1) you want updated graphics and 2) there is still a bug with the game crashing after finishing a level, most likely only affecting iOS version 4.1. Also 3) you want the game to run on iPod touch, but unfortunately it doesn’t have an auto-focus camera and that makes the barcode scanning unusable :/

You’ll be happy to know we’re already planning for update 1.1 which will address both these points! Our graphical and interaction designer Mia has a bunch of ideas for refreshing the app’s interface and I have noticed a bunch of small bugs aside from the crashing that will be rectified. On the roadmap are also a greater assortment of warriors and equipment. Unfortunately I’ve caught the cold so I’m mostly lying around in bed making Fred Durst-like noises at the moment.

Our goal was to release a minimal viable product as early as possible and then iterate, and the version we have shipped works great for most people who are not still on an older version of the OS, so I’m happy about that! The feedback we have received from the launch has put us on a steady course and I really look forward to sharing the progress on the next version with you all!

I’m also stunned with the scores some people on the leaderboards are achieving, you guys are nuts.

Auf wiedersehen!

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!

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.

End of March (or early April) Status Report

Jösses what a month! We finally released our first batch, Bang/Buck (Mustang) and iQüeüe (Hollywood), and both have gotten lots of positive response. But is that it? Nah, we will continue to stroke some more juice out of the wardrobe, so watch out.

Project Goose

It’s getting harder and harder to work with Goose, every time you launch XCode to do something you end up running it in the simulator and suddenly three hours have passed by. We are really super excited about this product! Enjoying to play around with our own shit makes us feel a bit like Fred Durst, but that’s just awesome. We are still on schedule, so in early May we will kiss goose on the mouth and send him off to the AppStore. Did I tell you it’s awesome?

Project Jester

Jester is done, and we have already sent it to the reviewing committe. This one is so nasty that we didn’t give it a kiss, just enough money for the cab to  Cupertino. We hope it will be accepted soon, so people are familiar with it before the next Olympics.

Other Projects

We have some great projects squatting our minds, looks like we will diversify the coming summer,but fear not; we will still make awesome apps for your iPhone. Our goal is still the same, coming up with digital solutions for navigating the analog world.  Well, that’s all for now.

ÖeG presents: Telia NetID fix for Mac OS X

Tl;dr version:

On Mac OS X running on Intel there’s a bug with the Firefox plugin for Telia’s e-legitimation. Shit freezes and you’re out in the cold. Or so it seems. But things are not always what they seem. So keep hitting each key in your passphrase, and after 10-20 keypresses the plugin registers the key, and you move on to the next. Weird as hell but it works. Brought to you by ÖeG. Buy our apps.

Original Post:

This entry was supposed to be posted months ago, back when it was the hottest thing around, but common life and professional laziness laid its ugly body between it and cyberspace. But today I decided to revive it, so I opened a beer and just went crazy. So here it comes ladies and gentlemen:

Since the day we started our business some people have been asking us questions such as “When is project Mustang coming out”, “What is this wardrobe thingy” and “Which Kent song describes ÖeG the best”. But instead of answering theses questions I will provide you with a quick and neat fix for using Telia NetID with Mac Os X. First a little bit of history,

First I was afraid I was petrified…

Yeah, true story boys ‘n girls. Me and my gutwrenchingly attractive wingman decided, a while back, to start up our own firm. Some people do things like that with the intent to conquer the world, get really really rich or attract a lot of good looking specimens of the opposite sex. I really would like to lie a little and say that our goal is bigger than that. It is to give the men and women (And, as our social skills evolve, also other animals. Both big and small ones) of our beautiful planet a better user experience when using their mobile appliances. Since me and Önders live in Sweden, you can’t just go out in the street, pull out one of those Dirty Harry-esque guns and declare “I’m Jonas, and from this day on I have my own firm!”. No no, as our society evolved from hunter-gatherers to become what it is today, it adopted bureaucracy. That means forms. Lots of forms. And a line where you have to sign your name. When starting a business in sweden you have to fill in some forms and send these by regular mail to two agencies, Bolagsverket and Skatteverket. Sounds quite simple, right? Well, ladies and gentlemen, let me introduce you to the World Wide Web. As mankind got more and more used to paying bills, booking flights and ordering late-night entertainment with just a couple of clicks on the Web, someone thought “Hey guys, maybe we should construct a way to identify ourselves online. We can call it Telia e-legitimation and come on boys, why don’t we make it run terrible on Mac OS while we are at it”. Thanks to this smart, but not so awesome guy, it is possible to sign contracts with your computer. Sounds absolutely fantastic, right? Wrong! Enter the fucked up world of fucked upness.

The Problem

First you have to download the program, and its plugins to all the various browsers that are out there….oh no, that’s right. It only works on IE and Firefox…. noo that’s right! It only works on IE and Firefox running in Windows! Isn’t that great? Hey, why would anyone else want to use it? Of course you are able to install it if you are running MacOS. It even let you install its Firefox plugin. But when you’re sitting by the computer with a big smile, and that crazy Glasvegas song (Stabbed) on highest volume, and decide that it’s time to sign a document you’ve been working on forever the god of awesomness turns into a fucktard. You’re not able to enter anything and firefox freezes like that guy from The day after tomorrow. Yep, Screwed is the name of you and your future. Or…? No, fuck no! Bang the drums and unzip that flight suit, ÖeG has the solution!

The Solution

A person with more time, talent and less beer would take som nifty screenshots to illustrate the solution, but that’s not the way I live my life. One of the best writers of modern poetry, mr Fred Durst, said it best back in the day when music still was cool “It’s a fucked up world, what a fucked up place, Everybody’s judged by their fucked up face” and this has nothing to do with our fix for the problem. Just general rambling and space whoring. So to give it to you the quick way: just type man! Hit those keys as if you are Muhammed Ali and they want to draft you to kill vietnamese babies. Oh, and you better be the Muhammed Ali of today, cause you have to press every key multiple times, until a small black dot appears in the field where your security code is required. There you have it. The badass ÖeG sewn fix is to hit each key until something happens, and then move on to the next one. This procedure may remind some sickos of group masturbation, but it works, oh fuckin a it does. I have no idea what I just wrote, and it doesn’t make any sense to me either, but I guess Önders will clean up this mess tonight. Until then you can ask questions in the comments, or not.Maybe it’s best not to do that. A picture would be nice now..

Oh, btw; we are still fawkin awesome.
