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