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 @ http://www.facebook.com/notabasement !
This is a small update from us to keep you guys in the loop. First of all, our devs are working hard on the next version of Manga Rock. We encountered a few unexpected bugs reported by users as well as dealing with the change in onemanga.com directory (many of their manga are now hosted on 1000manga.com), so this next version is taking a bit more time than expected. We are hoping to get it out ASAP. We’ll let you all know once it is ready and approved by Apple.
Secondly, we have been receiving quite a number of emails from you guys asking why Manga Rock is asking to be unlocked again after an iPhone restore or app reinstall and whether you guys will be charged again for another unlock. Here is the answer: no. If you have either reinstalled the app or restored your device, just tap unlock again inside Manga Rock, and it will be unlocked at no extra cost (provided that you have already purchased it the first time around). We hope that helps clear up some confusion.
Finally, our developers are going to attend WWDC 2010! It is very exciting as they are going to be learning a great deal of useful stuffs, and I’m sure that they will be able to make Manga Rock an even better manga reader! That’s all the updates for now. Peace!
