I don’t know if this was the cause of the AppStore issues, but it turns out that the build of Notespark that we submitted to the store doesn’t launch on 3.0 and 3.1 devices. I don’t know if this is why it stopped being downloadable from the store (it could be that someone at the store decided to pull it, or it could be something totally unrelated) but in either case, we’ve decided to pull Notespark from the store until we can fix the issue.
Once the issue is resolved, we’ll resubmit. For those of you who were incovenienced by the 3.0 / 3.1 issue, please send email to us at email@example.com and we’ll sort you out.
Woohoo! The new version of Notespark (mostly to support the iPad) has been sent to Apple!
There is also a new version of the website to go along with the new iPhone app, which you can use starting today. The new website uses ajax for just about everything, so it should be much snappier. Also, you no longer have to explicitly save a note. It just syncs up as you type.
The new website also supports the following keyboard shortcuts:
- up and down arrow keys to navigate around the note index
- return to start editing a note
- ctrl-s to save the note
- ctrl-shift-n to create a new note
- ctrl-shift-f to find a note
ctrl-delete to delete a note
- delete (or backspace) to delete a note
Try it out! Send all feedback (good, bad, or ugly) to firstname.lastname@example.org
[update: the ctrl-delete keyboard shortcut is a standard shortcut for "delete word" on windows, so we got rid of it. Instead, we use the delete key by itself. This keyboard shortcut (like the up and down arrows) only works when you are not in the middle of editing a note.]
