Capsuleer – iPhone Application Release Candidate

Well, the wait is almost over. Capsuleer is in the Release Candidate stage. What does that mean? It means that our initial iPhone application for EVE Online has passed all stages of internal and external beta testing, and is now doing one more final round to a broader, private audience.

Release Candidate testing ends today. Should all go well, Capsuleer will be submitted to the Apple appStore tonight, and could be available as soon as this weekend. It’s very exciting for us!

No screenshots today. Nothing fancy to show. Instead, here’s a feature list:

CAPSULEER v1.0

– no manual api key entry. Adding pilots is as easy as sending an email to your phone.
– multiple account and multiple pilot one step entry. Select all your pilots, or any combination thereof, in one easy step.
– Smart Character application Management. If you enter 1 character into the app, the next time you add characters, it will only display your remaining two. If you enter 2 characters initially, the next time you add characters, it will automatically add the third.
– easy to use, visually pleasing interface.
– Realtime countdown timer with end date and time in long format (Thursday, September 11, 2008 @ 8:34 AM)
– Colour coded timer as visual warning for skill completion (yellow = 25% time remaining, red= 10% time remaining)
– Displays Current Skillpoints and current ISK total
– Displays EVE Online avatar
– Previous state memory. Will load the last character you were viewing.
– Displays skill description of current skill training
– Racial backgrounds per character (can be disabled in options)

Once the official application is released, details on what is planned for v1.1 will be announced. We would like to thank everyone for their support thus far and promise this app will deliver!!!

Please, spread the word!
