Last week a few of you may have noticed that some of Daily Sage’s morning notifications failed to arrive on your iPhones and iPads. This resulted from some unexpected changes made to the backend server we utilize to handle and distribute our app’s notifications worldwide.
We are working with our provider to fix the issue, but could use your help.
If you have a moment, please fill out this brief survey. Your participation will help us better troubleshoot any ongoing issues and will improve the user experience, overall.
Thank you, in advance.
Version 1.6.2 of our Daily Sage app is now available for immediate download on both iPhone and iPad. 😎
Some users reported issues signing into the app even with an active subscription. Sign-in issues should be resolved with v1.6.2. If you identify any new bugs, please let us know.
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, you can (easily) force the update to install:
On your iOS device Tap & Open the App Store. Then tap your name or avatar in the upper right corner > Scroll down to Updates (and look for Daily Sage. If the button to the right says “Update,” tap to update. If the button says “Open,” your app is up to date.
If you are still experiencing sign-in issues with v1.6.2, please let us know.
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.
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!

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!
