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?!
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!
