Just tried taking a photo with my iPhone. Set it as my prediction photo and gave it two test runs, neither email arrived. Re-set it to the original photo and it works fine.

Ya I think there is a software bug in the assistant app regarding the prediction photo and loading it from the camera roll since it happened on both my iPhone and iPad.

We'll get this taken care of in the next maintenance release. Thanks for bringing this to my attention.

And per the previous requests, the place to download the original images is:

Maybe there's finally something to replace Email Wizard

If so I'm very interested in this.


Hi ...
I'd love to know your opinion 21st as I see, you were User Email wizard.
Best? Worst? Different?
If you have two available that would work?
Thanks

Everything else is done except for the custom SMTP stuff which we're having a bit of trouble with. Other than that, all the other changes are going to be very well received, I predict. Don't have an ETA yet but we're working furiously to get it done. It's all really shaping up quite well.

Pretty cool app! Purchased it and I've been playing around with it all day. I really like the possibilities you can create with this.

One interesting thing I noticed from testing it out is that if the email is opened [prematurely] prior to inputting the information, then the photo will always say "NO IMAGE AVAILABLE" no matter what. Even if you input the information afterward and reopen the email, it will still say "NO IMAGE AVAILABLE" from that point on. I guess once you open the email whatever information was on the server becomes permanently stored. Of course this wouldn't be an issue in actual performance since you would simply tell your specator not to open the email just yet. Anyway, this isn't meant as a criticism in any way, simply an observation.

Steven, after playing with this for a few hours I had a few comments/suggestions:

1.) I notice in the From field of the email next to the sender's email it always shows "keylmagicnoreply@gmail.com". Would there be any way to fix/change this, perhaps in a future update?
2.) It would be nice to be able to have the option to change the font color of the inputted text. Right now it's always a dark gray by default. It would be nice to have other color options, like black for example.
3.) Have you considered having an undo/erase button somewhere on the fake springboard page in case the performer makes and error?
4.) I know that in order to hide what the performer is doing and to make the app more deceptive the writing cannot be seen. It might be useful to have a feature where the performer can enable/disable seeing what is being written (and maybe even have the visible writing disappear after a few seconds). Sometimes it's nice to have visual feedback. In most cases nobody will be looking at your screen anyway as you'll have it tilted toward yourself or somewhere out of view like near your lap. For example, if you are using a confederate who isn't very experienced with the app, having the option to see what they are writing can make things easier for them and give added confidence that the information was inputted correctly.

Anyway, just a few suggestions. Thank you and great job with the app so far!

Phatmeat, thanks for taking the time to write all this up:

1) We have a nondescript reply email in the next release. There will also be a custom SMTP version so you can enter your own SMTP details.
2) Full RGB settings on color will be available in the next release.
3) We haven't implemented a feature like this and would need to be careful how it is implemented since we want to preserve as much screen real estate as possible for the writing itself. It's something we can look at, though.
4) This feature is also in the new update. You can turn it on or off in the settings.

Anything else springs to mind as you use the app please let us know. Thanks again for the feedback.

This is a limitation of the spectator's email client, not the app itself. If the image is downloaded prematurely then the only way to get the right image to show up is to refresh the image in the email message. Most phone based email clients don't support manually refreshing an image once it's been downloaded, which is ultimately the problem. But as you say, it's not too difficult to keep spectators on point especially if you develop a compelling presentation.

In my opinion 3 & 4 go together. No point in seeing what you've written if you can't correct a mistake once you've made one. A small button in a corner wouldn't lose much screen space. Just a thought.

Can't wait for the update either way Smile

As we finished the latest extra features, we decided to hold off releasing this until we finalize support for iOS 8. Best guess is that we are another two weeks away from submitting this to Apple, barring any unforeseen issues.
