Quiet is a good and a bad thing. It's good because we're doing less blogging and more writing of code. It's bad because we're not keeping you as up-to-date as we'd like on what's new with Collectivus.
Here's a quick rundown of what's been happening since our last update:
Rubber Duckie Thingies
The bulk of our test Thingies are now in circulation. We're using the data as part of improvements for the next version of Collectivus. If you have a Thingie hiding out on a desk, in a backpack or elsewhere, send it on an adventure with someone. Why…?
The New Collectivus
Think of passing along a Thingie as a way to get people on the early-access list for the next Collectivus. People registered with Collectivus will be the first to get invites to the next version. If you've had a few encounters with Thingies already when we launch, there might be an extra bonus for you.
We're rebuilding a lot of the applications and features, so even if you've never discovered a Thingie, make sure you're signed up and that your contact information is up-to-date. Tell a friend too!
The next Collectivus release will be highly focused on mobile devices. While we do currently have a mobile version of the application, it really doesn't have the mobile bells-and-whistles that we'd like. We hope to address much of that with the new version.
Our Newest Team Member
Lastly, progress has slowed a bit recently as we welcomed our newest team member to the Collectivus project. He's not much of a coder yet, but he had strong opinions on some of the new Thingie designs. That or he just had gas at the time.
