Get it here now.

We’re still here!

First of all, I would like to apologize for not having updated the blog in quite some time, we have been very busy with the preparation for the WWDC trip, WWDC itself, as well as update for Manga Rock.

WWDC was quite an experience for us, seeing Steve on stage in front of us was like a dream comes true. We got to learn  a lot of new techniques from Apple engineers (and wow, they’re sooo young!), as well as meeting tons of interesting people (Dave Castelnuovo, the maker of the popular game “Pocket God”, was one of them, definitely an avid Manga Rock fan!). It was fun and educational, but VERY exhausting. Now that we came back in Singapore, we’re gonna put those new found knowledge to good use.

Manga Rock is getting an update soon. Based on users feedbacks, we fixed many bugs (oh boys, now that we have taken another look at our codes, it’s a mess!),  added many new features to improve users experience as well as improved the overall performance of the app. A detailed changelog will be released on the same date as the app.

That’s all I have for you right now, please check back in a few days for more information, or follow us on Twitter at @notabasement or Facebook @ !
