August is Update Month here at Powermad Software! Each one of our current apps have been updated in advance of iOS 8 in order to maintain the shortest path to compatibility with Apple’s new iPhone and iPad OS. Additionally, older apps that lacked compatibility with iPad have now been updated to be compatible.
WeatherStorm has been updated to use the newest Wunderground.com icons, and to maximize contrast between text and background. The weather-displaying background images were cool, but we now admit it caused some readability issues, and have gone with a higher-contrast charcoal background.
Hax has had a few bug fixes, and has now been released worldwide.
And that’s where the real fun begins.
We are now testing technology for WeatherStorm where it will become entirely self-contained, leveraging the power of iOS 7 and iOS 8 to handle its own WeatherPush Alerts without the aid of a server. This should not affect things from your point of view, but it will free up valuable processing on our server for future projects.
And Hax is one of them. Our first casual game is being prepared for full cross-platform availability. It’s a road we have never gone down before, and one we’re eager to explore.
Finally, yet another road we have never gone down must be explored. We hope to evolve by entering the exciting world of 3D adventure games. It’s going to be a long and difficult road to get there, but we must press on. It’s a huge, ambitious undertaking for a tiny studio, but we still firmly believe in the Power of Small, and we think you’ll enjoy the results.
