Ron Paul iPhone App update released todaySubmitted by Bruise_Lii on Thu, 09/09/2010 - 00:21
In addition to the usual bug fixes and performance tweaks, the new update allows users to run the app in the background so that they can listen to Ron Paul and Free-Market related audio feeds while they do other stuff on their phone.
Users will also be able to read e-books. Over the next few weeks I will be releasing a bunch of free, Libertarian and Austrian Economics e-books on the app for people to read.
It is also easier to tell when new forum and activism posts have been posted. Unfortunately, I still need to raise $500 in order to build a notification system, like Facebook status updates or calendar alerts, that will basically allow us to mass text each other whenever there are important calls to action. The notification system would be spam free and opt-in only of course.
The good news is that we are just $500 and one step away from having the best activism/news/communication/organizational/educational/campaign tool in the history of mankind!
The bad news is that the app is losing ranking in the App Store. At one point the app made it into the top 25 News apps and we are now in 97th place, almost out of the top 100. We need reviews in a bad way, especially now that an update has been released our reviews for this new version get reset to 0.
Our Diggs for the Ron Paul App Digg page have also been reset with Digg's new website update.
Here's the link if anybody want to help Digg the app:
P.S. Reviews, reviews, reviews. We need them badly. To leave a review you just have to download the app through iTunes' App Store on your computer, phone, or iTouch. Once you've downloaded the app, you go back to the app in the App Store, go to reviews, and click 'Write a Review.' If we can get enough people on board, we will be more connected and up-to-date than any other candidate. Even if they try to copy our App, we will have such a huge head start that they would not even be able to catch up!
