it's a beautiful piece of work!
It’s been amazing to see the iterative process improvements made by the team throughout the test phase.
You guys have exceeded my expectations in transforming the app into a
don’t even think about taking this away from me, Kevin
Well I saw this post on LinkedIn and thought i’d give it a go. Veru impressed so far.
Thanks Connar and welcome to Cake! 🎂
So, well... Looks wistfully at his Android phone... Khm...
Yeah, sorry about that. 😔 In another thread awhile back I mentioned that we are small and only had the resources to develop for one mobile platform at a time. When we were interviewing, we talked to both Android and iOS engineers, but the iOS engineers accepted our offer and the Android ones we happened to meet didn't show interest in us, so that's one factor in how it shook down.
It's ok, I'm a patient guy. :-)
I plan to try the Android app when (if!) it is available but for now I'm happy with a Chrome shortcut on my phone's home page.
I didn't know that was possible until someone here pointed it out. With the site open in Chrome on your phone, click the 3 dots in the upper right, then "Add to Home Screen".
Hallelujah! Loving the app so far.
This is good news as most of my time is spent with a phone over a computer, something about mobile browsing vs an app. The app tends to win. Thanks to Cake for getting this out, it is working great so far.
* edit to add - I wrote this from my computer haha. I feel like a fraud now. But really, I will use the app more.
Thanks for the kind words, Cody. We built it for exactly that. We think that the app is the best way to experience Cake on the iPhone.
Any in my opinion, nothing beats a real full size keyboard. I'm thinking of getting one of these wireless iOS keyboards to compose long-form posts on the go.
Well, instead of hiring Android developers to build an Android app, you should expose some of the APIs (plus open documentation) you already built for the iOS app and open it up for people to write the Android application for you.
I think you meant iPad with a keyboard :p
Congratulations! Great to see this milestone!
I got the email about the Cake app now bring in the iOS store, however interestingly the email address at which I received the email is not the current email address in my settings.
It probably was the email address I originally used when I signed up for Cake, however I think it would be well over a month since I changed it.
Edit: just found it in the inbox of the email address in my settings as well.
