MyCntdwn 4 Update

I’m still working on MyCntdwn 4. I promise. Really. I’ve got a lot of tasks that I am slowly working through. I’m in the middle of making it a proper Universal app. I’m probably about 60% through this process. Some issues have come up while working on this, but I’ve been able to manage so far.

My original plan (way back when) was to have an update out by the end of April. Obviously that didn’t happen. My updated goal is to have an update ready for the iOS 8 launch. It’s my goal, but the chances of it actually happening are pretty slim. There’s a lot of work to do yet.

My plan for MyCntdwn 4 is still way up in the air. The initial version will roll MyCntdwn, MyCntdwn HD and MyCntup into a single app. It will have updated themes. Anything outside of that is up in the air.

Do I add syncing for the initial release? Probably not, I want to get it out to users.

Should this be a free upgrade? I’m not sure. I hope that supporting the app with free updates since 2008 has been long enough. I’m putting a lot of time and energy into this, I’d like to get something back.

Should I offer some sort of In-App purchase? Meh. I dunno. It has to be done right, or else it will be awful.

Do I forget iOS 7 and just start adding iOS 8 features? Maybe, but that will take more time.

Of course, all of this is subject to change.
