|iPad or Universal Version?||Neil||5/3/12 12:40 PM|
Hello! I am a recent convert to Fever from Google Reader, and I've
been using Sunstroke on my iPhone. I think the app is great. I am
wondering if you are planning to create an iPad version at some point.
I find Fever to be almost unusable on the iPad with Safari, even with
the work that Shaun has done to make it better.

Thanks for writing, Neil, and thanks for buying Sunstroke. I agree that the Fever experience on iPad is pretty poor. I'm definitely intending to do an iPad version, but it won't be released soon. I can share a lot of code between the iPhone version and an iPad version, but the UI will have to be drastically changed. I want to push out a few more updates to the iPhone version (one's coming this week) before focusing on the iPad version.

I love the iPhone version, and I hate to be "that guy" but I was just wondering if you had an update on the iPad version, if it exists at all?
|Re: iPad or Universal Version?||Anthony||10/25/12 5:13 AM|
Jordan, thanks for posting. Don't ever worry about being "that guy." It's a completely fair question. Unfortunately, the economics of it just don't work out. I don't earn enough money from Sunstroke to justify spending months building an iPad version (even though I really do want one). Don't worry, though. I will continue to update and improve the iPhone version. A few days ago, I submitted a great update to Apple, which should be approved any day now. I also have a lot of good ideas for ways to improve Sunstroke in the future.
Thanks for buying Sunstroke. I really appreciate it.

news for a ipad version?
|Re: iPad or Universal Version?||Anthony||12/18/12 4:19 PM|
Still waiting to see what Reeder does first with its iPad version. If its Fever support is much improved, then I probably won't do an iPad version. If it isn't any better than it is currently, then I'll do a separate iPad version. To be honest, I had thought that Reeder's iPad version would be finished by now.

Nothing to report, yet. However, I have decided to do an iPad version eventually, but I have a few projects to finish first.

Yep, big news today. Sunstroke for iPad has definitely moved up in the queue of things that I need to get done.

I'm an iOS developer myself and would be willing to help with the iPad project. Even if you just want help testing.

Thanks. Installing Fever today, and your app is the obvious iOS goto for for fever!

I may have found a workaround/temporary solution to using Fever/Sunstroke on iPad. Wrote up a blog post with pictures on how to do so here, and I'm quite pleased with the result:
Cheers to Sunstroke for iPad and to a great app, Anthony!
|Re: iPad or Universal Version?||Anthony||3/26/13 1:32 AM|
Thanks for sending that to me, Steve. It looks interesting, but I can't say that I want to use the current version of Sunstroke on my iPad. Still, it looks like you did a fair amount of work to make it work on the iPad. That's impressive.
I've been working on some potential designs for the iPad app, and I'm getting excited about building it. It definitely won't be just a simple port of the iPhone version. A bunch of other companies/developers are also working on iPad Fever clients. Hopefully, you'll have a native iPad client to play with soon.
