Coffee Cellar Update

I thought I’d write a brief post to catch you up on what’s happening with Coffee Cellar. Its currently on sale at $1.99 (£1.49) so please grab a copy now!

I had a nice review from Tap! Magazine which you can read here – They awarded Coffee Cellar 4/5 stars and called it “An easy and pretty way for coffee connoisseurs to keep track of their favourite blends.”

I’ve updated Coffee Cellar a few times since launch and it currently sits at version 1.1.1. Here’s what has been added since launch…

1.1.1

+ Added a new icon for Halloween. Just a bit of fun to spice up your coffee cupboard.
+ Added iOS5 twitter sharing (and a graceful fallback for users with older versions of iOS)
+ “Prep notes” renamed to “My Notes”.

1.1.0

+ Added a picture frame icon. This allows you to use your own photo as an icon in your coffee cupboard.
+ Added a cafetiere icon.
+ Improved the alignment of all icons in the cupboard.
+ Selecting an icon in the “Add Coffee” and “Edit Coffee” screen centers the icon making it more obvious that there are a number of icons to choose from.
+ Tapping the icon selection box in the “Edit Coffee” screen scrolls down to show the full view (including the delete coffee button).
– Removed icon highlighting from Cupboard view and “Edit Coffee” view.
– Removed the custom button on the Tasting notes screen. Tasting notes are now added when you tap done on the keyboard.

1.0.1

+ Added support for iOS 3.2 and above
+ Improvements to the App icon
+ Fixed email sharing to handle special characters
+ Fixed issue with incorrect spacing on some words entered in the tasting notes screen
+ Re-designed the mug icon

My next focus is on the Christmas update. I’ll be adding a number of new cupboard icons (to ensure you have a variety to select from). I also have an ever expanding backlog of features and improvements I want to make. I’ll be dipping into this to add some nice new features for the Christmas update.

Thats us all caught up I think. I plan on updating Coffee Cellar for the foreseeable future. Sales wise, its not really picking up. I’m currently selling about 1-2 copies a week. I’ve played with prices but I don’t have enough sales to draw any real conclusions.

As always, if you’d like to support me and buy Coffee Cellar, you can do so here. Alternatively consider gifting it to a coffee loving friend.

    You also forgot to update your facebook page ;) you got a few fans out there. Promote the page in the app. You will get more fans.

    Thanks, glad you find it useful. Really nice to hear from people who use the App. It encourages me to keep supporting it :)

    Good point about the facebook page. I have to confess to not being very au fait with facebook. I will make an effort to update it more often though – thanks for the tip.

    Let me know if there are any features that you’d like in the App that you feel would add value.
