Friday, June 25th, 2010

Welcome, Moosh Army!  We are happy to announce that our official app for OlgaKay’s content stream is now available for download from the app store for iPhone and iPod Touch (it will also run on iPad in iPhone emulation mode).

Similar to our other apps, this great addition allows you to follow both of Olga’s YouTube channels, her dailybooth, twitter, flickr accounts, and allows you to view her website and IMDb profile!

We’d like to thank Olga for giving us the opportunity to provide this app to her fans, and we hope that you enjoy it.  If you have any questions, comments, concerns, or suggestions – please do not hesitate to use the “Contact GeekUtils” button found in the “About” tab of the app to contact us!

If you are using any of our other apps, you can quickly download the OlgaKay app by clicking on it’s icon in the “More Apps” tab.  If you are on a computer, you can download now by clicking here.

GeekUtils is What’s Hot!

Friday, June 25th, 2010

Well – actually, what’s hot is how many apps are being downloaded and for that we thank you guys, our valued customers.  Even if the apps are free, it means a lot to us to see our apps hitting the top charts in iTunes.  As of this evening three of our apps are in the “Whats Hot” section of the Social Networking category (CTFxC, Unofficial ShayTards, and Unofficial Shane Dawson).  Additionally, three of our apps are in the “What’s Hot” section of the News category (PhillyD Official, AutoTV, and GamerTV.  Check out the screen captures below to see what we mean!

Thanks again for downloading our apps and helping us to grow our brand and our awareness in iTunes!

Several App Updates Released!

Monday, June 21st, 2010

The updates for all of our vlogger apps have been approved by Apple.  Please check the app store for updates at your earliest convenience.  The latest updates significantly enhance the way the video descriptions are rendered on the phone.  With these latest updates, “links in the underbar” now appear correctly, and are clickable!  Now, not only can you watch content from your favorite vlogger, but you can even navigate all of their links right from inside our app(s).

Also, for users of the PhillyD Official app – the web viewer now includes a back button.  This way, when you navigate to a single image or other static content – you are not “stuck” without a way to go back!

Thanks again to everyone who has contacted us with suggestions on how to improve our apps.  We hope that you enjoy these new updates.

Back button for

Saturday, June 12th, 2010

Many of you have contacted us asking why the PhillyD Official app does not have a back button on the view for Phil’s website.  Initially, most of Phil’s blog posts did not include the picture links that you are seeing in some of the most recent posts.

When there are no pictures, tapping the title bar does the same thing as a back button would, so we removed the back button from the design.  Unfortunately, this leaves you without a way to go back when you browse to a picture that takes you outside of the normal website framework.

We have an update coming this week that adds this much needed back button back into the app.  These updates will also include the links in the underbar that many of you have also asked us about.  We will be submitting the update to Apple this weekend – and as soon as it is approved (again, hopefully this week) – it will appear in your available updates in the app store.

Thanks again for sharing your comments, concerns, and suggestions – together we can continue to add features which make our apps even cooler!

Twitter and Links in the Underbar, Oh My!

Wednesday, June 2nd, 2010

We have been listening to the comments that you have been providing by way of the “About Tab” in our apps and we are excited that a couple of new updates are coming very soon.

  • Twitter integration – Just as our apps currently allow you to easily share content via facebook or eMail, twitter will be added to the list shortly.  This will allow you to share your favorite content directly to your twitter followers.  Additionally, we hope to streamline the app away from the current web-based twitter reader to a more native format.  This will allow you to tweet and reply to tweets directly from our apps
  • Links in the UnderBar – many of you have asked why the links in the underbar don’t appear to work like they do from  Unfortunately, this is a limitation of the API call that we are using to retrieve information directly from youtube and into our apps.  We have devised a way to actually get the full description, so links in the underbar will be working soon.

Of course, keep up to date with our twitter feed (@geekutils) to stay up to date with the latest updates to our apps.  You can also use the “More” tab in any of our apps to read this blog, view our other apps that are available, and contact us to provide feedback and feature suggestions.
