I know, I know – it’s too long since I gave you folks an update. Here’s the speed version of what’s up here at Passpack:
Shortly after the one year anniversary of Passpack’s official launch, Francesco and I have buckled down and officially incorporated the business: Passpack Srl (“Srl” is Italian for “Inc.”). This takes us one step closer to getting the commercial version rolled out. Next step, hiring and finding a decent office.
Prior to this, we were running as a spin off of Katytid, which I’ve now closed to dedicate full time to Passpack.
After a pause in development, we’ve gone back to slaving away on a Beta 6 release. There is an enormous to-do list for improvements born out of your suggestions, as well as a few items which have been pushed back from the Beta 5 and preparation for the commercial release.
A huge thank you to everyone who spoke up about the pricing on future packages. You said the price was too high, and we heard you. The first tier upgrade will fall into the $10-12/year range. This lower cost package will be put out there for those who mostly want more space.
Just a reminder, you can still upgrade free-for-now.
For all of you who have written in inquiring about the call for mobile testers, I’ll be in contact shortly. For now though, we’ve closed the call.
I have a public apology to make: I really dropped the ball on the previous round of Mobile Testing. The tests got canned. Now, that can happen, sure, but I apparently did not inform the beta testers – who so kindly volunteered their time – of this fact. I could try and blame it on Thunderbird and that tricky Drafts folder, but that would be a cop out. It’s my fault and I apologize.
Some of you may know, I recently got back from a trip to San Francisco. Not much time for relaxing there, but I did get to drop by the MacExpo where I met the founders of MailTank. It looks like a possible scalable solution for my email woes. I’m testing it now.
Strap in and get ready – lots of exciting changes are coming.
