It turns out that I’m pretty bad at keeping up with things, and this blog is no exception. Since my last post, I’ve released a bunch of new stuff, but never got around to posting about them here. So now I’m going to fix that.
Most recently, I released Collaboration. This makes it so that you can invite someone else (or multiple people) via email to share pretty much everything about the apartment hunt with you – the stuff they’ve looked at will turn grey for you, their favorites will show up on your favorites list, their notes will sit below your notes, and so on. It’s pretty cool, but I’m sure it needs some tweaking, so please let me know if there’s anything about it that doesn’t work well or any design decisions that I’ve made that don’t really make sense. Also, if you really wish it did something that it doesn’t, that’s good to know as well.
Besides that, there’s been another couple releases of the iPhone app to try to bring its quality up a bit (some of you seemed unhappy about it, and upon further review, rightfully so). Hopefully it’s at a good point with this upcoming release. There are still a couple of changes that I’d like to make, but some of them are more time consuming than I have time for at the moment.
The Yelp restaurants/grocery stores/cafe’s/etc overlay was moved to a little bar on the bottom.
And a host of random improvements and bug fixes which should make things smoother overall.
