Doris spotted on AppWall – Twice!

June 10th, 2009 by Demian Turner

At the WWDC this week Apple stunned the crowds with a pulsating App Store hyperwall! The hyperwall represents the top 20k most popular apps, displayed across twenty edge-to-edge 30-inch Apple Cinema Displays. Each time an app is downloaded, it pulsates on the screen in near realtime.

Andrei, our man on the Objective C development front, spotted the few tiny pixels that made up Doris.  He even found Doris LITE!

New Doris updates in AppStore

May 28th, 2009 by Demian Turner

Version 1.1.3 became available yesterday in the AppStore – please update to get important stability fixes and improvements in performance.

Both regular and LITE updates are available.

Where is the free iPhone version of Doris?

April 27th, 2009 by Demian Turner

We’ve had a bit of bad luck on this one, we actually submitted the free version to the AppStore over a month ago, but we’ve had 2 submissions rejected to date!

It’s totally our fault, in our enthusiasm we didn’t read the AppStore terms and conditions carefully enough – we presented features in the interface that said things like “disabled for the LITE version” which is clearly disallowed.

The other problem is that while app submissions and updates take the AppStore around 7 days to turn around, rejections are closed to 14!

To end on a good note, our 3rd attempt at a free version of Doris was submitted Apr. 22nd so I estimate it will be available for general consumption by the end of this week.

Thanks for everyone’s patience!

Great news: when it rains it pours!

April 23rd, 2009 by Demian Turner

We’re feeling a little overwhelmed here at Doris HQ – seems everywhere we look we have great news!

I can only resort to bullet point form as there are too many things to mention:

  • Doris for the iPhone entered the AppStore top 100 charts in the Productivity category in 4 countries, we’re at #6 today in Russia, #35 this week for Sweden and #54 today in the UK
  • Apple decided to feature us in their Dashboard widgets page UPDATE: we’re #6 Dashboard widget on apple site
  • Andrei pointed out that we’re the #1 result in Google for productivity app
  • @ryancarson tweeted about Doris which sent a nice Twitter traffic bump
  • we also got written up in one of the top Russian blogs and that’s sending a ton of traffic our way

We’ve also been getting great feedback on Twitter and via email.

And if that wasn’t enough, My High Street, another iPhone app we launched on Tuesday is already at position #17 #2 in the UK AppStore (Navigation) and is getting tons of downloads.

Thanks for all the the Doris buzz guys – keep it coming and let’s make her the best productivity app around!

iPhone update available in AppStore

April 17th, 2009 by Demian Turner

An update of our iPhone app (Version 1.1.0) is available today in the AppStore.  See this blog post for a full list of improvements.

FREE version of Doris iPhone app posted

April 9th, 2009 by Demian Turner

We wanted to give folks a chance to try out Doris on the iPhone for free before actually committing to buy the app 😉

So today Doris LITE was posted to the AppStore – it should be available for download in about 7 days.  The app includes all the features of the regular Doris iPhone app with the exception that you can only sync with Doris on the web the first time you launch.

So if you want to try out Doris LITE you are recommended to build up a decent selection of groups and items first in your web account.  Then you can sync all the data to your iPhone, but only the first time you launch the app.  After that all Doris LITE updates will not be updated in your web account.

Unless of course you upgrade, which is a 1 click process.

I’ll announce here when Doris LITE is available, stay tuned!

Doris now available on the iPhone

March 26th, 2009 by Demian Turner

After a somewhat lengthy wait we’re happy to announce Doris made it into the AppStore! We put together an iPhone page to give you all the details.  The iPhone version of Doris gives you access to almost all the features offered by the website, with the addition of syncing – so you can keep on top of your tasks where ever you are.

We will be releasing a lite version for the iPhone shortly that will have all the features of the regular version with the exception that it can only sync once per 24 hours.  So you can try it out with no strings attached, then go for the full version if you like what you see.

In the next version we’ll be bringing the full 11 languges of the website to the iPhone version, but for now it’s only localised in English, Latvian and Russian.
