Scott, I know that it may be a dump question, but as a former IT supporter I have to ask this obvious question:
After you've altered the text did you click on SAVE in the upper right corner, or did you just hit BACK?

My apologies for the lengthy absence. I'm back now and semi-ambulatory.

Sean, I almost re-injured myself laughing from your post... not cool, dude Smile

Scott, something that has bitten me in the past is that I'll change something in settings and then click 'back' instead of 'save'. If you just click 'back' then the new content won't save. Hopefully, the problem isn't something more sinister. [EDIT] Chester beat me to it.

Status Update:
On Wednesday of last week we were rejected by Apple for something VERY minor which we fixed and resubmitted the following day, on Thursday of last week. Given the speed at which they process the "do-overs" I strongly suspect approval within the next day or two at most. I can't apologize more profusely for the delays. No one wants this thing released more than I do.

Here is a list of final features that made it into this build:


  • Fully iOS 8 compatible
  • Custom SMTP capability so emails are actually being generated from your mail account (this is optional, you do not HAVE to use a custom smtp account)
  • Added a '2 second delay' to 'submit image on:' option in addition to the 5 and 10 second delays. This is my preferred setting and think that most of you will like this one too.
  • Custom attachment may be included if desired; this could be a white square which would be invisible or another image that works with your presentation
  • Text may be viewed while writing the secret information and the opacity of this text is controllable. For me, my neatness has dramatically increased when you can actually view the writing. Particularly helpful with the confederate app.
  • Final text color is is editable with full RGB values
  • 'Softening Level' feature has been added to allow the text to blend better into the final image.
  • All text has been further smoothed for an even more polished finished image. One effect of this is, you know how certain rounded letters can look somewhat angular? Not anymore.
  • Final image is automatically placed in camera roll so in the event the user can't get their email, you can still show the picture as a success. I've never had to use this yet, but when something doesn't work right I'll be glad it's there.
  • Email screen actually looks like an email screen and I've been having users type in their own email address because it's quicker than having them dictate it and everything looks above board
  • Up to 3 email addresses can be entered on the email screen
  • Numerous other smaller fixes and enhancements


I've used the SMTP feature on about 12 different email accounts of different types with different providers. Each provider has different settings and security rules which may require specific tweaks to your settings. To save time for those of you that will be using the SMTP feature, here are some helpful tips that I learned the hard way:

  • Port Number: will nearly always be either 25, 587 or 465. Most commonly it's 587 with the SSL (security) switch ON. If using port 25, and less commonly 465 (which is a legacy port not used much anymore) then the SSL switch is normally turned OFF.
  • SMTP Server Name: The most common problem here is that people enter their POP server name or other mail server. Check with your ISP to make sure you know which server is being used for SMTP
  • Username: this will be the full email address and not just the username
  • Password: not much to say about this one. It IS case-sensitive, as per usual
  • SSL: This sets up two way encrypted communication (SMTPS, for the techie types). Please read the advice above under 'Port Number' for more info on this setting
  • Some providers require the 'reply to' address be of the same domain as the originating account. In other words, if I use stevenkeyl@gmail.com for the smtp settings but the 'reply to' address is set to stevenkeyl@somethingelse.com then it may generate an error and not work. Check with your ISP for their security rules on this. I always keep these addresses the same to avoid any potential problem.


Not being fully up to snuff, I don't know how often I'll be checking back here but I'll try to do so a bit more consistently. Thanks for all the support and hopefully it will be out directly.

I definitely am saving the text I type in. All other parameters are saving except the text. Please help.

All,

Another issue I'm having that I'd like some help with. In attempting to change the prediction photo, I assume the green frame has to fit on the entire paper that I'm holding. However, even when zoomed out as far as I can I find I can't get my whole self in the picture. Am I doing something wrong?

My photo is myself holding a marker pen and standing next to an A-frame whiteboard. The final prediction looks very convincing.

Come on dude, the spec doesn't see it and it doesn't affect the working at all. A lot of work goes into these things and Steven has done a fantastic job with this update.

The writing now looks much more realistic and is integrated with the photo seamlessly.

Used solo this is an incredible effect. Used with a helper it's an absolute miracle.

I am still having same problems I mentioned on the previous page with the new update. This app has great potential, but not if it does not do what I need it to do. Can anyone suggest a fix for the problem that I am having saving the text that I type into the field? Does the link need to be in a certain position?

Sorry, I wasn't bashing Steven or his app. I was trying to point out the error humorously. I just think it's funny with all the work put into the app that one letter was left out of a word. I love the app and will be using it a lot more now because the update is so good.

Have you tried uninstalling the app and installing it again?

Josh, I must be blind because I don't see a typo. Where is it?

Scott, a couple of ideas here. Way back in the early part of development there were issues with certain special characters being misinterpreted and messing up the output. Can you try a simple test like 'hello world' (without the single quotes) to see if you can get the text to update. It's possible if you're using certain characters or symbols that it may generate an internal error and not update the text appropriately. If that doesn't work, Josh's idea is a good one, try totally uninstalling/reinstalling the app. If none of that works, I can try an internal code review to figure out situations where it might not update properly but at that point we're getting into needle and haystack territory but I'm certainly willing to spend the time to check it.

The update is great! Thanks Steven. I can also see the typo, which doesn't bother me at all.
Now it would be great to see the accomplice tool on android, because my wife went from iPhone to Xperia Z. Smile

Chester, now that this version is out, it's full steam ahead on Android!

I have the A on my version, which was the final build version before we released it to Apple, which means one of my developers must have inadvertently took it out between the last version I was sent and the version submitted to Apple! Pity.

Will there be an update to the 'HELP APP' so that the assistant gets the benefit of visible writing.

Also, can anyone explain the 'Attachment' option?

Thanks.

Thanks for all the suggestions. The word 'test' saved and sent. I do think it may be symbol related.
