I just wanted to post a quick update as folks have been asking and you’re owed one.
Unfortunately, I got flu a couple of weeks ago which knocked-me-out productivity-wise for best part of a week. I’ve now also got a secondary infection (!!!), but I am still able to work this time around. So, this is factor #1 in some new production delays, as I’m the glue that keeps everything running at Wimoto.
The second delay is that we have our production samples back from starting mass production. The parts program with our firmware properly (which is a good test that things are working), but mysteriously the radios are not working on the samples. We’ve tried to troubleshoot this as far as we can, and on Friday we engaged our radio system-on-a-chip partner in Japan and have now shipped them parts. Either we’re unlucky enough to have a real (or reels) of system-on-a-chip parts that don’t work, or something is going on in manufacturing that’s “frying” radio components (there’s more than just one chip involved).
There are some screenshots of the iOS version below and we’re now going to start getting 1.0 App Store approved. Based on some comments, we’ve included a “simulator” so that when you download the app you can run it without Wimoto sensors and still get a feel for who the app looks and feels.
Work will start on the Android 4.3+ version in the next week or so. Unfortunately, we can’t help you with questions about how to get Android 4.3 on your device (it’s not always a straight forward conversation)– please contact the manufacturer of your phone.
If you haven’t received a survey, or just haven’t completed it, it’s now better just to email us at contact [at] wimoto [dot] com. If you’ve had an address change or have special shipping instructions (such as wanting to upgrade to courier service, for example), this is also the best way to do it.
The next update will be in a couple of days once I get a chance to re-forecast things and take into account the holidays (we’ll be working, but others won’t) and our Consumer Electronics Show visit.
