Capsuleer v1.0 finally released!

The universe is a cold, harsh place. It’s difficult to survive; even more challenging to succeed and profit. Any advantage a pilot can gain keeps them one step ahead of the competition.

Introducing Capsuleer, the definitive iPhone/iTouch Characater Management Tool for EVE Online. 

Capsuleer offers a beautifully designed, intuitive interface to quickly display all your relevant character data to you. Featuring artwork and icons from EVE Online, users will find themselves quickly familiar with the application, and immersed in its stunning appeal.

What good is beauty without brains? Capsuleer features an innovative Import Control System that allows you to effortlessly bring all your accounts and characters data into the application with one easy step!

If you want to be more successful in EVE Online, Capsuleer is the application for you.

KEY FEATURES:

– No manual api key entry. Addition of accounts/pilots is handled via our Import Control System
– Import Control System doesn’t use “scraping” or any other security violating methods to get your character data from the EVE api.
– 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, intuitive iPhone/iTouch interface.
– Per second real-time countdown timer with skill completion date and time in long format. (Thursday, September 11, 2008 @ 8:34 AM)

– Displays Current Skillpoints and current ISK total.
– Displays EVE Online avatar.
– Previous state memory will load the last character you were viewing.

DOWNLOAD IT FROM THE APPSTORE TODAY

We are currently in negotiations with the EVE player that owns http://www.capusleer.com In the meantime, please visit us at our temporary website at http://capsuleer.wordpress.com

Thanks to all the beta testers and everyone who has supported us. We already have great things in store for the next releases of Capsuleer!

Submission

I know, I know, it sounds like a great story title doesn’t it? But no story again today. I will get back to writing soon I promise.

Apple requires a LOT in order to get an app passed. We have everything ready. Today is submission day.

The only thing that confuses me is they want a 512 x 512 icon of the application for the appStore homepage. When I look there, I don’t see a 512 x 512 square image anywhere. Maybe it’s just me. Either way, I am giving them what they want.

I figure “icon” means no small fonts, not a lot of type at all. Here is what they’re getting, so look for it on the appStore!!!

I will keep you posted as our application undergoes review.

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:
