As we end the week here at preParti, there were some highs and some lows... Well not lows exactly but definitely some anticlimactic moments. We signed all of our paperwork making us official. That was a big high! Woo hoo!! Another high was Will, a member of our team, had a baby!! Babies are always exciting and we can't wait to meet her. I'm sure she's super cute. :)
As for disappointments, we've had some issues with the iOS beta release that is making us more and more anxious each day. I don't know why Apple is making it hard, but let's just say it's not as easy as the Android release. I promised people an invite to our beta release almost 2 weeks ago. I am a pretty reliable person, so this is making me crazy. Hopefully we will have something at the beginning of the week.
In the meantime, let me show you what the team has been working on as far as updates. So first thing is first, we are working hard to include the great outdoors on our app. We've started by adding trees to the outside of the venues, so when you look at through the windows or if you go out on the balcony, you dont' feel like you are floating in the air. This is what it used to look like:
Where are we?? Looks like we are floating close to the hot, hot sun!
Now here's a preview of what it will look like very soon:
Look at all the pretty trees and all the grass outside!
Some other updates are more color options for the tables and chairs, and we have some new venues getting added to our app very quickly so watch out for those!!
