Hope all is well. A quick list of things to update you on today.
We're about midway through shipping and are still hoping to have all orders shipped out by the end of January. If you haven't received your order yet, thank you for your patience. We are working quickly to get it out to you as soon as possible.
We wanted to point you all to this cool new video showing the unboxing of Tethercell! Thanks to Philipp Durrer!
We also wanted to point you all to the project of our electrical engineering contractor, who provided some amazing support on Tethercell. If you're frustrated with the limitations of your standard multimeter, definitely order a Mooshimeter!
App updates and future releases
Both the iOS and Android apps have been released for a number of weeks. We are working hard to extend the functionality of both as well as clean up bugs and issues found on specific devices. Please stay tuned for future releases and improvements!
Note: The Android app is compatible with all Bluetooth 4.0-enabled devices running Android 4.3 or 4.4 (we plan to maintain updates beyond 4.4).
Thanks and have a great week!
Hope the holidays went well for everyone! We're in full gear with product quality checks and shipping. We will be doing our best to get all orders shipped out before the end of January. If you haven't received your order yet, we apologize. We are working quickly to get it out to you as soon as possible.
Today we're happy to announce that the Tethercell Android App is now available for the first time in the Google Play Store. The app will be compatible with all devices running Android 4.3 or 4.4 (we plan to maintain updates beyond 4.4). Please note that the functionality of both the iOS app and the Android app will be expanded over the coming weeks. Stay tuned for future updates.
We appreciate your patience and your support.
Hope you are well! Happy Holidays! Quick update here. Shipping is continuing through the holidays, but still at a snail's pace due to the quality check efforts that we've employed. A number of orders will arrive before the holidays. However, the majority will go out after the holidays. Right now, we're on pace to fulfill every order by the end of January. We will be sure to keep you posted on our progress.
We apologize once again for the delay. As we mentioned before, if your shipment arrives after the holidays, we will throw in a little something extra for the added waiting period.
The iOS App: Our iOS app has been available in the App Store for a number of weeks. The next update is scheduled to release in the last week of December or first week of January. Note: The App Store is not taking submissions between 12/21 and 12/27.
The Android App: We've had to take closer look at some of the bugs we've experienced during Android app development. Right now we're targeting a release in mid-to-late January.
Thank you so much for your support and patience. We're still very excited to get Tethercell out to you.
Happy Holidays to you and your family!
We're happy to announce that we have started shipping! Yes, it's true. It's been a long time coming and we're thrilled to be at this point. Thank you so much for your patience and, of course, for your support. We couldn't have gotten here without you.
While shipments have started to go out, the fulfillment process will be slow, unfortunately. The reason for this is that in final assembly we discovered a quality issue in a portion of the outer plastic shells. The issue had gone unchecked during the initial part inspections. We are now very slowly assembling units, making sure to weed out any defective units.
Right now, our goal is to get all shipments out before Christmas. However, looking at all that must be done, this may not happen for all shipments. We apologize for this in advance. If your shipment arrives after Christmas or the New Year, we will throw in a little something extra for the added waiting period.
A couple of other things to note:
Shipping fees: A number of our International backers did not include the required shipping fee with their order. While we thankfully raised enough money to make this project happen we are still on a very tight budget so will, unfortunately, need to request that people submit those international shipping fees. Please look out for an email. We really appreciate the continued support.
The iOS App: Our iOS app has been available in the App Store for a number of weeks (link below). More updates to the app are forthcoming. Our proximity and social features will hopefully be rolled out in the beginning of 2014.
That's it for now. We hope to get your package out to you as soon as possible. Thanks so much!
Apologies for the delay in sending out an update. We've had our heads down, pushing towards the first shipment date. Good news, we just received our FCC and IC certificates (days ago), so are now able to distribute Tethercell legally!
Right now we're in the final stages of product assembly, testing and fulfillment prep. If all goes well we will begin shipping within the next two weeks.
We'll be in touch soon regrading the initial shipments. We appreciate your patience and are excited to begin shipping!
