Hey friends!

Many of you may have heard that earlier this week, Apple announced big changes to both their desktop and mobile operating systems: OS X Yosemite and iOS 8.

This is exciting news for future app development and we’re thrilled to be a part of it.

A few months ago, we reported that iOS 7.1 ushered in a slew of interface changes.
One, in particular, altered the effectiveness of our app SPAM Alert.

While no official announcement has been made (from Apple), we’re digging deep into the new iOS 8 beta and hoping Apple will allow us to restore SPAM Alert’s functionality back to its intended glory.

The image above, on Apple’s official website, has us thinking optimistically.

Could this be their subtle way of telling us, full-screen contact images are coming back?!

Well, crap!

If you’re a reFaced user, first and foremost, thank you!
Secondly, we’re sorry if you were hit with an annoying bug that we’re just starting to see surface.

We want people to use our app as much as possible, so we integrated a little reminder in case you forget from time to time. It appears that some users are being overwhelmed with a bug that continuously reminds you (with a notification).

While our intention is never to nudge you more than once every few weeks, some users are reporting dozens of notifications in just a few hours.

We’re sorry. That’s annoying and we’d be irritated it too!

We’re working to isolate the bug and will deploy an update ASAP.

In the meantime, if you’d like to disable notifications, you can to so by going to

Settings > Notification Center > reFaced.

Again, please accept our apologies. Our goal is never to bug, bother or annoy.
At Brushmedia, we aim to create “Awesome Apps” that you and your family and friends can play, use and enjoy.

We appreciate your patience as we find and fix this hiccup.

More to come…

Happy Friday!

#reFacedApp

Hello gang!

The team and I are proud to announce out latest app: reFaced!

reFaced is a super-simple, super-fun photo utility that allows you to easily swap faces in pictures without fancy software like Adobe Photoshop®.

It couldn’t be easier to use:
Pick a photo of you and a friend (or any picture with two forward-facing people), tap swap and adjust color controls if needed.

Then, you can save the photo to your camera roll (to manipulate or share in any app) or directly share it with Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Email or SMS!

Check out the photos that others have created (it’s a continuous feed) at the reFaced website!

It’s 100% FREE and we hope that you try it out and begin sharing your photos, today!

iOS Full-Screen Caller ID Change

 

hAPPy Friday everyone! (see what i did there?)

Earlier this week (Monday), Apple went ahead and dropped the much anticipated iOS 7.1 update for iPhone, iPod Touch & iPad. This update is the first major release since the complete redesign of the iOS user interface. The update brought some interesting new features, like CarPlay, while refining other areas like Camera & Calendar.

There were also a few interface adjustments. Most notably, changes to the “phone” application & Caller ID.
Much to our dismay, Apple has adjusted the appearance of incoming calls. And, while this doesn’t change the effectiveness or the way that our SPAM Alert App works, it does make it slightly less clear when SPAM numbers are calling.

While we’ve filed an official request with Apple to restore full-screen “Caller ID art” to iOS 7.1+ (or at least allow us to override the default), we’re left trying to brainstorm a better solution until they do.

If you have a moment, please send your feedback to Apple: https://www.apple.com/feedback/iphone.html
Apple has always been very clear that they value feedback in numbers: the more people that complain or request a feature, the more likely they are to acquiesce.

Thank you again for your continued support.
We appreciate your business and look forward to creating more “Awesome Apps” for you and your friends.

Have a great wknd!

Introducing SPAM Alert

hello world!

if you’re anything like me, you’re getting more and more unwanted mobile calls from political parties, telemarketers, debt collectors, etc.

as it turns out, signing up for “Do Not Call” lists is no longer an effective way to prevent or stop receiving these unwanted calls. after receiving as many as six (!) unwanted, unsolicited, calls in a single day, i decided to do something about it:

i created SPAM Alert.
it’s a clever app that visually notifies me anytime 900+ known solicitors attempt to call my iPhone.

i’ve been enjoying it since August, and I’ve decided to share it with the world.

the user interface was written from the ground up to provide not only a pleasant iOS 7 experience, but also an intuitive environment for novices and experts alike. As Ron Popeil famously said, “Set it and forget it.” The next time you get an unwanted call, like magic, you’ll be warned.

no one should have to deal with mobile spam…

I would appreciate it if you would take a minute to check it out and hopefully download.
If nothing else, please help spread the word!

 Tweet it, Like it, Share it, Text it, Blog about it! Anything you can do is APPRECIATED!

Together, we can put a stop to these unwanted calls!

learn more . . . or download from the App Store.

i’m looking forward to hearing what you think.
