Final Beta App Done! πŸ“±πŸ₯³

Vinoth Ramiah @vin047

After months of spit-shine and testing in the field (before Covid-19 struck), I've finally completed the last version of TripUp before its official App Store Release!

This is complete with a new website, screenshots, privacy policy and paperwork sorted, ready for the full release, which is to be initiated once Apple clear the App for Beta Review (this last update includes some last minute touch-ups).

Hoping the current situation doesn't slow down the review process too much. 2020 hasn't been a great year so far, but I'm optimistic – it's hard to be down when you finally see the light at the end of the tunnel. Here's to good times ahead! πŸ₯‚

    Good luck Vinoth!
    Actually a great time to launch something that's a trip down memory lane!
    I have to be honest and say that I didn't "get it" from your landing page.
    I understand the "feeling" but not the "how".
    Hope this helps,

      Thanks Jonathan! Bit worried about the timing as people aren't exactly meeting up for group events, but true about it being a good time to reflect on good times πŸ˜„

      Thanks for the feedback – you're not the only one who's been a bit perplexed. People seem to only get it after they've used it, specifically when they've used it with a group, which I admit is a major barrier to adoption. It's different to the way people go about sharing photos right now.

      Perhaps an animated image on the landing page would work better πŸ€” In any case, i'm glad you got the feeling at least, and your feedback is really appreciated πŸ™‚

        Sure thing!
