So where are all of the other app updates for iOS7?

Tuesday, December 17th, 2013

So – yes, people get busy, things fall behind.   What started out as a hobby for us has turned into something much bigger than expected.  There are hundreds of thousands of people using these apps as part of their daily ritual, and millions have downloaded them – that’s pretty crazy!

We appreciate all of your support, and we read all of your mail.  We know that you want updates for iOS7 – so here is the latest:

All apps have been updated for iOS7 and submissions to the app store are underway right now.   Given that Apple shuts down their review process during Christmas, we hope that these will land in the store prior to the holiday – but cannot guarantee it.

We’re working feverishly to get you all updated to the experience you expect out of your shiny iOS6 and 7 devices 😉

SourceFed and PhillyD App Updates

Tuesday, December 17th, 2013

We’ve released an update for the PhillyD app and launched the new SourceFed App today.

The PhillyD App no longer contains the SourceFed channels – it’s back to being your destination for all things Phil.

The SourceFed app has the SourceFed and SourceFed Nerd channels and the FHP store.

As with all of our previous apps, these two updates support Push notifications and all of the native iOS goodness you’ve come to expect from our apps.


Audio not working with latest updates?

Thursday, September 26th, 2013

Our latest apps use the latest incarnation of the mobile playback mechanism on the device.

This playback mechanism OBEYS the mute switch on the device.  If you have your sounds muted (Silent Switch ON), then audio will only come through the headphones.

If you want the audio to come out of the device, ensure that your silent switch is in the OFF position.

This is the default recommended behavior for iOS6/7.

Let the iOS7 / iPhone 5 app updates…. begin :)

Wednesday, September 25th, 2013

We are in the process of updating all of our apps for iOS7 and the larger screen size of the iPhone 5.  We are going through each app starting with the most popular, and working through them all.

The first app to receive the fruits of these changes is PhillyD Official.  To download, use the links to the right on the homepage.  The app updates feature the following:

  • Twitter widget replaced with a normal Twitter view
  • All orientations are supported
  • All screen resolutions supported
  • iOS6 and iOS7 are currently supported.  The next update will likely only support iOS7 – so if you have not updated yet, please do.  There are user interface elements right now which are not optimal – but are necessary to support both iOS6 and 7.  We would eventually like to work this in to an app that is better designed to support only the latest and greatest, however 🙂
  • MANY bug fixes and performance enhancements

Enjoy!  We will slowly be releasing updates to the other apps in the coming days as they are completed.

Server Outage Today – Back Online…

Saturday, June 29th, 2013

So – for many of you, you may have noticed that for a certain period of time today – the badges for new videos did not clear (as they usually do) when you load the app.   This was due to a planned server outage today that has now been resolved.

The server that runs all of our services and provides data for our applications has been moved from one datacenter to another – all functions should be operational once again.
