It’s 9am on a Sunday and I’m working. I’ve just released an update with a number of improvements to the mobile version of Beetight.
Firstly, it’s now possible to upgrade to Pro from within the mobile version. You still have to go to the normal PayPal site, as they seem to not have a smartphone-optimised one, but that seems to work ok.
I’ve been having reports that the site can’t be accessed from a Blackberry. I don’t have a Blackberry, and I only have Macs and Linux computers, so I can’t run the Blackberry emulation software. This means there’s no way of me realistically developing for it, so I’ve instead set it so that Blackberrys are taken to the full site, rather than the mobile version.
There are some cases where people may want to visit the full site from their phone, so I’ve made it possible to override the mobile-detection. Click the link at the bottom of the mobile front page and you’ll be taken to the full site. You’ll stay on that version until you click the link up on the top of the screen near the login/logout links to return to the mobile version.
The launch is going really well, so I’m very excited and want to push out updates as soon as I can. We’ve had over 200 users sign up in the past couple of days, and a few Pro upgrades which is great. The more people upgrade, the more time I can justify spending working on Beetight! This is not my day job, so at the moment I’ve working on it mornings, evenings and weekends (much to the annoyance of my fiancee).
