People (especially app designers) aren’t always keen on change or updating apps. However, when Apple released new devices and a new operating system, developers had to keep up with the times or be left behind. Sometimes, it feels like once we catch up with software updates we don’t have much “down” time before a new device hits the market. Perhaps, this is job security!
New screen sizes with the iPhone 6 and IPhone 6+ (which run 64-bit apps) meant that some of our games didn’t run properly. We wondered how many users purchased a new phone or received one as a gift during the holidays? How many are still playing our apps on iPhone 5?
During the last three months of 2014, consumers purchased the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus in record numbers. In fact, during the fourth quarter, Apple shipped nearly 75 million iPhones!
Since December, we’ve made sure our recent game releases run properly on the new devices. Now, however, we’re going back to some of our earlier releases and more popular games and making sure they too will run properly on iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus and other new devices. While we’re at it, our updated games will include some new features; bonus point opportunities; power-ups; extra playing times; ability to make in-app purchases and more. Details will be coming soon.
Our first updated game will be the ever-popular “The Trout Family Swim and Fish Adventure” (version 3.0). This is a fun game and it’s very easy to play. The simple object of the game is to swim upstream; jump from waterfall to waterfall (without falling off) and avoid obstacles along the way.
If you’re ready for the current version (iPhone 5, etc.), follow the links for either the free version or the paid version of our game.
