More Info

So I got an email from apple this evening that I somehow missed as well.

Looks like a form letter. Here's the text:

Hello Geopher Developer,

Your application, Geopher Demo, cannot be posted to the App Store because it is a demo version. We are not accepting any demo, trial, or pre-release versions, as all apps must be fully functional. You may append Free or Lite to the name, but still must remove all references to Demo in the app. You may point out that there is another version within your app's info panel. All buttons that are not active in this version must be grayed out or removed.

Developer Technical Support

Unfortunately, Geopher Demo WAS fully functional, it was just a sort of preview of things to come.

So.

Geopher Demo is now Geopher Lite. And I'll let you know when it makes it BACK through the submission process. :/

Thanks for your patience. In the meantime, drop me a note with desired features and functionality if you've got it. Thanks for following the drama. =)

I wish u could implement "skin" development for the app.

The "pirate" map metaphor just don't cut it for me ;P .. i wish for something "cleaner" visually

Really looking forward to trying out your app. Thank you for all of your work!

Hi Victor,

Thanks for the suggestion. I hadn't planned on doing a skin, but I think I could do something with that. I'll play around with that a bit and see what I can do.

Thanks for the show of support tigers. I'm looking forward to it too. =)

if u want help developing a skin just say so... if i have time i could do something for it. Just give me the specs (background, arrows, buttons, etc)

Hi victor.

You are welcome to develop a skin. I personally like what I currently have. I do have plans to revisit the artwork, though I wouldn't turn away help if you offered it. I will consider adding custom skins to the app in the future.

I should note that I rather like the parchment background, but I realize not everyone will like it as well as I do. The compass and arrow are currently much more negotiable.
