Hi All,

I’m looking for some volunteers with a variety of devices to test out ‘molapse’, all will need front facing cameras.

“Capture your brilliant bushy beard as it mogresses through movember with molapse. It’s a timelapse app focused on those who’ll be taking part in Movember.  http://ex.movember.com/

Abusive support requests, Really?

Hi All,

This is a bit of an odd one but today I got one of the most abusive support requests I’ve ever received and realised I’ve never really talked about these.

To clarify I’m all up for criticism of the app and suggestions on improvements, here I’m referring to out right abuse with terrible language and personal insults. While they’re actually quite rare you’d be impressed that they do come through and they aren’t pretty.

I bring exhibit A – This guy emailed me on Tuesday and having not received a reply by Wednesday sent this:

 

Thank
you for your reply…. Oh wait, you did not. You are a lazy f**k and
should pull this app off the marketplace, 7.8 has been out a while and
you do not bother.. THIS APP DOES NOT
F**KING WORK YOU LAZY FAT C**T! Clear enough?

The really sad thing is that I’m working on a fix and I now know that this guy will benefit from It, despite being intensely abusive, its really frustrating!

New Job!

A while back I applied to Microsoft’s MACH Scheme (graduate scheme) and was lucky enough to get offered a place. Only started on Monday but I’m already loving it. If you’re a student considering applying for graduate jobs I would strongly recommend it.

P.s.

As I’ve started work and don’t working internet connection at home (yet) I just wanted to quickly apologise for not getting back to people as quickly as I normally would. I will still get back to everyone who sends feedback but probably not until the weekends when I have some free time.
