Good news: Version 1.5 of our popular Daily Sage app is now compatible with iOS 12 and the iPhone X Series. It is available for immediate download. 😎
Additionally, Daily Sage now brings native compatibility to those without an iPhone ––– v1.5 is now “universal” and can be downloaded and enjoyed on any supported iPad. 🙌🏻🎉 The iPad version is free for existing subscribers and just 99¢ a day or $9.99 (US) a year for new users.
We’ve also cleared thru all your feedback and are confident that we’ve killed all the reported bugs marring your app experience. If you identify any new bugs, please let us know. 🐛🚫
Now, some “bad” news (it’s not that bad, promise!):
Unfortunately, the backend server we utilize to send your daily inspiration has dramatically increased the cost of their services. Maintaining daily operations for our app comes at a cost and this new increase has driven up operation costs by more than 150%!! 😳
At first, we thought we’d have to raise the cost of Daily Sage, but are now happy to report that prices will stay the same thru the year (2018). The price for new users will likely increase in the new year. Those new prices are still TBD.
To help compensate for the rate increase, we’re switching the servers that deliver your inspirational notices (each day). We’re confident that the new servers will deliver the same reliable experience you’ve come to expect from our app, without interruption.
That said, installing this update is crucial:
Starting November 1, 2018, users who have not updated to version 1.5 will no longer receive daily notifications. 😢
For most users, your iOS device will automatically download and update your app, so no further action is required. IF you have automatic updates turned OFF or your device hasn’t received the automatic update before October 31, 2018, you can (easily) force the update to install: On your iOS device Tap & Open the App Store > Updates (bottom of the screen) > Daily Sage > Update.
We apologize for any inconvenience this update may cause and hope you continue to enjoy receiving life’s best advice, every morning. If you have a friend or loved one that you think might also enjoy our app, please share it.
As always, we appreciate your support and look forward to inspiring you, every day, in the future.
Proud to announce that our latest update is fully compatible with iOS 10, starting today (v1.0.5).
Grab it before Apple releases the update, tomorrow!
When SPAM Alert debuted in January of 2014, we were committed to stopping mobile SPAM.
Since our launch, more than 400 (!) new numbers have been submitted to our database by SPAM Alert users!
We have painstakingly followed up with EACH entry, and have verified that 200 of those numbers are in fact SPAM callers.
In a continued effort to stop these unwanted calls, we’re releasing our first “service pack”:
it contains all of the numbers you’ve been protected from [for the last 6 months], as well as the 200 new entries we’ve vetted.
Our goal is to release Service Pack updates twice a year, continuously, to protect you and your family from mobile SPAM.
These packs will cost $0.99US, but are transferable to any personal phone, even if upgraded.
Some users have asked why SPAM Alert and its Service Packs aren’t FREE. Here’s why:
Creating SPAM Alert was tricky.
We wanted an app that could be installed easily, wouldn’t impact battery life and could protect a user for as long as they used an iPhone. The Brushmedia team met these goals, but not after months of brainstorming & development.
In addition, we must research and verify ALL newly submitted numbers, daily.
Maintaining SPAM Alert’s backend and functionality doesn’t come easily.
That being said, we think that SPAM Alert is well worth the small price to keep it up-to-date and keep your privacy intact.
These updates are NOT required. When you purchase SPAM Alert, you get the latest database protection for life.
Lastly, we’re pleased to announce that Apple’s upcoming iOS 8 release appears to be bringing back “full-screen” caller ID art.

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!
