This morning, Apple formally announced the release date for iOS 12: September 17th.
Below is a list of all of our apps and their compatibility with iOS 12.
We are finishing up work on v1.5 (a critical update). We hope to have it released and on your iOS devices by the end of this month. 🤞🏻
Additionally, we’re working on a major update to our popular TimeCruncher app. Until it’s ready, the current version (tho not optimized for the iPhone X series) is 64-bit and will run on any iOS12 compatible device.
Knowtify is also fully 64-bit and iOS12 compatible!
We’re working on a cosmetic update to make it shine on the iPhone X series.
Our original flagship app is not yet 64-bit compatible and therefore not available on iOS 12. Tho disappointing, anyone who previously installed the app (in iOS 10 or earlier) will STILL be able to take advantage of the app’s primary feature: warning when spam is calling.
Until we’re able to update the app, new numbers cannot be added to the system and therefore, new submissions cannot provide our advertised warning. All previously added numbers (more than 1,500) will continue to be blocked.
POPtorious! & POP Jr!:
Unfortunately, POPtorious (our first app!) and its sister app, POP Jr!, both need a few adjustments before they will be ready to take advantage of iOS 12. We hope to make those adjustments soon so that we can get them back in the app store for existing users to continue playing and for new users to discover.
As always, we thank you for your support and appreciate your patience as we update our existing apps.
We have lots of exciting updates and new apps on our roadmap and we look forward to sharing them ALL with you!
How many times has someone asked you to “text” them when you got home? But, you forgot?
Or, how many times has someone told you that they’d text you when they got home but, they forgot?
Introducing Knowtify for iPhone. It notifies your friends and/or family automatically.
Now you don’t have to worry about your friends (your kids, elderly parents, family, etc.) and they won’t have to worry about you.
Knowtify uses iPhone’s built-in GPS technology to put a virtual “fence” around your home. When you’re leaving a location (or anytime before returning home) and want to alert others once you’re back safely, simply launch the app and select who you’d like to notify. Once set, the app will monitor your location (in the background). When you return home, the phone will signal the app and the app will notify your chosen friends & family.
The app can react in one of two ways (which you define, each time, when setting):
1) Automatically send an SMS notification to the people you selected or…
2) Wait for you to arrive home before notifying you personally. This option is still automated, but requires action before it notifies your selected friends & family. If you aren’t home, you can snooze the app (for another few minutes) or have it dial emergency services for immediate help.
Believe it or not, we started building this app just over TWO YEARS ago!
What appeared to be a simple problem to fix, quickly turned into a wildly complex challenge to solve.
When building apps, we strive to create powerful apps that solve universal problems.
Then, we attempt to design a solution that is intuitive, beautiful and power efficient.
Knowtify is the embodiment of these ideals.
When we’d become discouraged by the (seemingly) endless development timeline, we were reminded:
“it takes 6 months to build a Rolls Royce and just 13 hours to build a Toyota.”
Good things, simply, take time.
We’ve spent years streamlining the interface, focusing the features and improving battery usage. We’ve also taken quite some time to develop a companion Watch app to further expedite the app’s core functionality. As the app has evolved, it’s improved and now it’s ready to debut!
I hope that you’ll find it useful, use it regularly and recommend it to your family and friends!
it’s now available, ad-free, on the Apple App Store. go grab it!
