It’s a been a little while since I’ve given any kind of update on our progress with STRIP for the iPhone platform. We’ve been hammering away at our data model and at this point I think we’ve arrived at a fairly stable first implementation and work-flow for the app. After changing it what seems a billion times, I think we’ve got it. For now.
There are still some tweaks we need to make before we start the beta of the initial version. Also of note: wireless backup and sync won’t be available in the initial version. It will be done, oh yes, and it will be done well, but not in time for the first release. We want to at least get this out there for Strip fans to test it out and make sure we’re going in the right direction here. This feature is really important to us, as it’s one of the features that really made the previous versions of Strip stand out, and we’re committed to its implementation.
We’ve put together a mailing list just for Strip (low volume, announcement only) for those of you who want to be alerted directly when we’re ready to do the beta. Sign up for it over on the Strip page.
We still need to put together an export tool for old Palm OS Strip users who want to migrate to various systems, and a means to import that export into the iPhone version. We intend to have that piece in place by the end of the beta, before we go live, but I can’t commit to a time-frame just yet.
Thanks again for your patience as we work hard to get this right.
