Haha not quite, sorry for getting your hopes up. There’s a ‘feature flag’ that the testers have which gives access to the full app & that will work for the standard app too. Only the beta testers will have it though.
I’m good. I was given access for the Beta and I’m happy for my luck. Eager to see it available for everybody.
It is a shame indeed. On a positive note it may serve to show there’s a strong demand out there for the service. People who showed their disappointment probably really wanted to use it. I’m convinced the ratings will go up very quickly.
I think this is a very good approach.
We are happy to let you know the waiting list is no more. Thank you for telling us how badly you wanted to use our beautiful app…
I just received an email thanking me for testing, asking me to leave the beta program and install the full public version. I’ve followed the instructions in the email but now have lost access to the app! I get a splash screen with, “Android’s on the assembly line”.
Also, I think in hindsight, allowing people to download when it wasn’t ready probably wasn’t the best idea, except to get a load of 1 star reviews. I think if I wasn’t an investor in the company, hadn’t been on this forum, or following the blog etc and just downloaded it to find I was in a queue, I probably would have been tempted to leave 1 star…
Yep, can see lots more reviews now. There is a 1* too about the magic link not working but imo all reviews are useful (if they’re posted now and not before the app is useful and not just a waiting list).
The app did say it wasnt ready previously, I do question the attention span of some people
