Coming Attractions

Wow, the response to Pinfinder for iPhone has been great from just about everyone (except for that one fellow in Pittsburgh who thought it was “lame”! Hi there, guy!).

So, we thought we’d give you some updates and a taste of what’s coming;

  • As of this posting, we are tracking 6,957 pinball machines, all over the world!
  • Pinfinder is running on a new database back-end – this means a speed boost in search requests, and lots more flexibility to add new features as we move along.
  • The coding is done for the following features in the iPhone version of the app;
    • Edit address for existing venues within the app. This has been a long time coming, but it took time to implement properly, and now it’s done!
    • Editable Web Address / URL for each venue. Handy!
    • Tap on phone number to call the venue! (PRO version only) This is a very fun and useful feature (at least we think so)!
  • The coding is almost done for “flagging” a venue as closed / “no pinball” / “dupe”, etc. This is a much-needed feature which is going to work great. For now, please continue adding a comment such as “no pins here”, and we will remove the venue manually from the server side.
  • The Javascript / web-based version of Pinfinder is currently in beta-testing. Once we get it right there will be another awesome way to Find Pinball Near You!

And lots more stuff down the road! Hi-scores, photos, etc.., all coming. Fun times.

Thanks guys,

Keep on flippin’!

  1. Hey, great to hear!
    Can’t wait for these updates to drop. Sounds like your adding some really great features.
    Javascript version is also a good idea.
    Thanks guys, keep up the good work.

  2. Hi Sam/Team (Just Sam?)

  3. Hey Guys!

    When is this update coming out?

    The page says those features were ready in May and well…. Here it is in almost August and the update hasn’t been released yet! REALLY want to get all of these sites I’ve added to my iPhone uploaded so everyone else can see them (I’ve added almost a two dozen machines and comments all over the United States!).

    Thanks!

  4. One more thing about the iPhone version…. I would love to leave feedback in the iTunes Store; but when I go to the Application, it says I don’t have it loaded! What’s up with that? Someone should look into that bug so we can start generating some positive buzz in there!

    Thanks Again!
    Steph
