First Testflight Beta

Fri, Mar 04, 2011

Despite me being extremely busy with finals coming around the corner and volunteering, I had an urge to push out a beta build of Regions to the people that signed up at TestFlight. As I said before, I dumped out all my old code, which meant dumping out a lot of features when I started from the Apple example code. One of the simple (and essential) functions was playing a sound in addition to the pop-up alert when you receive a reminder. I noticed the lack of sound several times while on my bus. It got the job done for me since I was staring at my phone anyway, but this was obviously a short-coming.

Since I don’t have time to do a more substantial update, this is a nice excuse for me to checkout how pushing out updates via Testflight is. I can safely describe it as a cross between awesome and beautiful. If you’d like to try out new features before they are released to the app store, sign up to be a beta tester.
