The new website revisions are live, and we're already seeing some good feedback and increased response, so thanks again to everyone who worked on that.

Thumbprint 1.1 continues to be hammered away on. There are a lot of changes under the hood, but the most exciting thing for me is to be able to update the look to match more closely the iOS7 aesthetic.  It's much lighter, brighter, and less buttony. The bug list is finally starting to shrink, so I'm hopeful that a release is close at hand.

Finally, a big shout out to our QA staff. Sometimes the work sucks, but it's invaluable and allows us to catch what would otherwise be very nasty bugs. You have really stepped up your game so far this year, so thank you.


Both Thumbprint 1.1 and the Web App are still in development. We found some stuff in the 1.1 Beta that still needs some refining, so we're taking our time to make sure we get it right.

In other news, our website is undergoing a substantial overhaul, mostly about making it clearer exactly what the app does, as well as explaining all the ways we help schools to get everything up and running. When it's done, we'll announce it here.

Here's some stuff we're up to this week:

Thumbprint 1.1 for iOS is under development. This will allow our iOS 7 users to see the app with a more updated look. Don't worry if you're still on iOS 6 - we're taking care to make sure that you'll be able to continue to use the app as-is until you upgrade. 


Web app development is going well. We've got the ability to view, create and edit all the content types. Now comes the tricky business of making our click drag & drop and bucket functionality work in the browser. Should have some more update on that later in the week.


Thumbprint 1.03 is available on the App Store. Some users of right-to-left languages were experiencing trouble with Posts and Multiple Choice quizzes. That should be fixed now. Please make sure you download the latest update if you haven't already.

In other news, we are (I hope) about two months away from releasing the web app. As with all our development projects, this one is ambitious and on a tight timeline, but I'm confident we'll make it.  The dream was always to be as inclusive as possible with the platform, and I'm looking forward to the day when every internet-enabled device can be a node on the Thumbprint network.
