Godaddy …. is very disappointing

There will be some planned downtime soon (couple days). I’ll be moving this “joint” to another spot on Ma Earth.

In other news, GV Mobile looks hopeful to return to the ol’ mighty App Store.

Tentative game plan:
+GV Mobile + (hopefully GV Mobile) hits the App Store at $2.99.
+A week or so later, I will change the price to FREE for a good 12 hours or so. I’ll give notice via Twitter and this blog (if the fucking site doesn’t go down – Godaddy! Sorry, I’m pissed)
+After the 12 hours or so, back to $2.99

Thoughts being…if you bought it way back and didn’t get it from Cydia, you can still wait a bit longer to get it for free. If you bought it way back and bought it on Cydia…or if you just bought it on Cydia, you can wait a bit because the version hitting the App Store will have the same feature set.

Planned changes are:
+full landscape (except for dial pad)
+revised keypad (sounds, and minor stuff)
+graphics (hi-res)

I think that’s it for the initial release.

  1. So it appears that it WON’T just show up in iTunes as a free update for those of us who purchased way back in the day? Just clarifying here. Thanks!

  2. Keeping my fingers crossed for no approval issues. I’m thrilled that you’re finally going to get “mainstream” business for all the hard work you’ve put into the app.

  3. I bought it at the app store. I bought it at Cydia.

    The version at Cydia doesn’t work well. Constant access denied errors.

    Make it the same app, make it show up it iTunes as a free update for those of us who purchased it.

    I’m sorry that Apple put you through all that, but I’d like to get my app for free, not wait a week and hope I’m not oversees or whatever in the 12 hours you deign to make it free.

  4. I love GV Mobile+ and I’ll gladly pay for it again if Apple approves it. I’ve already got push notifications by forwarding emails to Boxcar, so what I’d like to see is stuff like an option to dhow SMS’s the usually way (organized by person) instead of Google’s weird organization by conversation. I don’t want one person to show up in my SMS list more than once. It’s confusing!

  5. Great news! When time permits, please implement push notifications for SMS and voicemail. Not that you won’t hear this request enough, but that’s one huge advantage of going official. Thanks!

  6. BlowDaddy HOSTS your site? Say it ain’t so, Sean! After dealing with their domain name registration user interface just once many years ago I never even considered hosting with them. I’m glad you’re moving, and I look forward to the next update whether it’s on the App Store or Cydia, makes no difference to me.

    +1 for Matthew’s SMS organization suggestion, although I fear we may be stuck with Google’s conversation weirdness.

  7. I’ll pay $2.99 any day of the week for the ability to circumvent AT&T and seamlessly use WiFi when available. Hell, I’ll name my firstborn after someone who can integrate GV with iPhone! Thanks for the great work & looking forward to the app. Can’t believe people are irked about paying $3 to developers… you should never have announced the 12-hour free window 🙂

  8. The “limited time only” free offer is a very nice gesture. I’m sure most of us will gladly buy it anyway. If $2.99 is too steep, ask Mom and Dad for a raise on your allowance. =p
