However, your previous comment comes off as condescending and unprofessional.
Huh? I said:
"Sorry, still working on the Android edition of Barry.
After that we may do some quick maintenance builds of the other mobile apps, but then again, there are 15 of em, so "a couple of days" is a bit optimistic."
Now please explain to me how that is condescending and unprofessional?
This IS a genuine answer about the status.
I do not appreciate being casually dismissed about a legitimate concern.
Again, I don't see where you were "casually dismissed". You asked what the hold-up was. And I answered explaining the hold-up (Barry for Android) and why a couple of days won't do the trick (because we have 15 mobile apps waiting for similar maintenance builds).
IThis has been a known issue since December of last year (8 months) for ONE mobile app on ONE platform. This is obviously not an issue with all 15 of your mobile apps.
I don't see why not. My guess is that this issue occurs in all 5 Android apps. Don't see why this is a CLZ Comics specific issue.
As we are both aware, your maintenance builds are not developed, held and released in comprehensive batches. They are released as issues arise with a specific app and platform. And let's be realistic, fixing the "back to the top" bug hardly warrants rewriting the entire code for CLZ comics on Android. Other platforms for this same app do not share this bug. That is the mindset from which I suggested " a couple of days" would be enough to fix this particular bug.
Of course the fixing itself of this particular bug may only take a short time.
But if we release a new build for CLZ Comics we also want to:
- fix other small issues that other users have reported
- fix the same issues in the other apps
- fix other issues in the other apps
- test the 5 new builds thoroughly
- make 5 stable final builds
- submit 5 apps to the Android market with nicely updated What's New lists and descriptions
- Announce the new build to the world, on Facebook, Twitter, the forum, by email
All in all, doing a PROFESSIONAL software release for 5 mobile apps takes at least a week, probably longer.
Could it possibly be quickly addressed after Barry's release before moving on to more long-term projects?
Yes, that is the plan. But still, I can't guarantee we'll start with maintenance builds for the Android apps. Some iPad users are screaming for an update of CLZ Books HD. And a lot of Movie Collector 8 users are yelling for an update of CLZ Movies (for all 3 platforms).
And yes, some CLZ Comics for Android users are waiting to have this annoying "back to top" behaviour fixed.
It's up to us to determine the priorities and the order in which we tackle these builds ...
I'd love to have that army of new devs... but paying them from the profits of mobile apps (especially Android apps) is going to be a problem
