Hi All - Happy Holidays and thanks so much for all your comments and thoughts.
We’ve made further progress, and are seeing fewer reports of user issues, which is quite encouraging.
A quick note - We’ve been evaluating the most recent data from our users relating to Bluetooth BLE links and their character stream reliability. We’ve been able to verify that there is an intermittent issue with iOS seen by some users, and we’ve filed bug reports with Apple.
We are studying additional logs to see if we can build in some further protections for the link on our end. We do see this iOS bug also reproducible with Microsoft’s BLE folding keyboard, so it’s definitely at the OS level. But anything we can do to make TextBlade more resilient to it is of great interest to us, to ensure a consistently smooth and reliable user experience.
Our Dev team will be reviewing the collected findings from all the user data next week, after they return from some well-deserved family time, and we’ll be posting an update with some more details of interest for you.
Thanks to all for your goodwill and encouragement, and for the fantastic enthusiasm of those using their TextBlades right now. Their great input is so important and helpful to others. Your observations, ideas, and contributions are appreciated so very much.
We look forward to a great 2018! It will be a fantastic year, with mass quantities of TextBlades shipped to our customers, and many exciting and satisfying new experiences for all of us.
Happy New Year to All
