It's really nice to see this schedule. Would it be possible to get a list of "future, unscheduled" tasks you have planned in the next few months? 2 weeks out is typically minor new features, and what really interests me is the "big" changes which will take more time. Seeing Oaxis address these as items on a to-do list would do a lot, even if we weren't given any estimate on availability.

Hi there,

I'm sure many will agree that downloading APKs from forums - especially if it's password protected - is inconvenient.

Luckily, Android has a great way to ship betas to users and do staged rollouts:
https://support.google.com/googleplay/a ... 1213?hl=en

Are you planning to switch to this?

Agree. Will show the wish list in the next update :) Or at least put it somewhere so everyone can see :) Thanks.

Apparently not, they failed again to meet their schedule.

What a disappointment.

Guys,
Sorry that our InkCase Now still stuck with some problem and we have decided to launch a most basic version (without customizable layout and without multiple pages) to showcase the idea first.
Give us one more weekend and you should see this on Monday. Thanks :)

This might be a silly question but how do I get updates? I see on google play there was an update but I did not get an update on my phone.

You can just download the update version from Google Play and then just install the update.
But you can also download the latest version from this Forum as we will release the new software here first and then only release on Google Play after one week or two. Thanks.
