It’s hard to believe that in December of 2008 we had met with a handful of potential developers to get an idea of what would be involved to create POOP THE WORLD. January arrived and we had a business plan in hand and fast forward about 7 months and v1 has been on the market for a while and we’ve had lot’s of suggestions for v2.
We’ve now got two great sites (pooptheworld.com + swsdigital.com), over 500 followers on Twitter, our own Facebook fan page, over 130 ratings in iTunes, seen and heard some great reviews, but best of all, have been able to watch the Global Poop Leaderboard and dynamic maps showing people from all over the world using our app. We’ve been blogging steadily, and even had a one day sale for free that blew the springs off our expected number of downloads. We’re more confident than ever that our app can crack that Top 20 list again (as it did throughout its first week).
Well, v2 is with the Apple approval gods right now and we’re very excited about what our partners at Atimi and Engine Digital have helped us create.
To give you a few clues about what to expect:
- Facebook Wall integration
- Facebook Friends List integration
- Twitter integration
- Autobroadcasting of achievements / trophies / poops generated
- Optimized loading times
- View the Global Poop Leaderboard from your iPhone / iPod Touch
- View your most recent poops on a scrolling map (My Poops)
We think you’ll love it.
