Good question! You click on it first...:sh

Apple doesn't permit transfers of ownership through the app store so Ken's version had to be removed and then I had to submit the same version for approval under my account. I am still working with Apple to see how and if current holders of the app can upgrade without buying it again. Regardless, the app will continue to work with its current level of features. Updates to the database will work on the current version even if people don't upgrade.

So I'm working on it. But since it isn't an issue until there is an upgrade I am focusing more on the upgrade. I'll make sure to post something to CA as soon as I know what the solution will be.

I'm almost to the point of switching to a new app that is actually updated...hate to do it, but it's starting to get frustrating to have to almost add every cigar I buy because it's not in the database and other apps out there already have the features I want (and not to mention periodically updated)

I am getting pretty frustrated too. The new owner needs to give some kind of update as to what is going on or I am going to find another app. This is getting ridiculous.

I've already bought & used the Stogie Fresh app while waiting for an update for Mobile Stogie. It's good but I like the look of MS better but not having to enter all the new cigars is convenient.

Gonna have to check that app out, frankly I'm over it now.

Version 3.0 of Mobile Stogie has been submitted to Apple and should be approved soon.

This will not include an update to the cigar database. This update should be completed in about 2 weeks.

The Android version is under development but I expect this to take a couple months. Mobile Stogie is a passion project and I'm learning as I go. I'm sorry if this takes longer than people would hope but I'm working on it with all the time I have.

I think that people will be very impressed with the update 3.0 because it adds many features. The biggest one is that you can review your cigars and save you notes and scores within your iphone/pod/pad. You'll also be able to save photos you take of your cigars within the app.

Sincerely,
Colin

Sounds good Colin. Will the old schoolers be able to just update or are we gonna need to delete our version and download the new one?

Any way for owners of Ken's version to import their data into the new version if we buy the new version?

This is a huge question for me too. Please comment on this if you don't mind.

Thanks for asking. I've been looking for a way to help people transition from kens version 1.x to the new versions 2.0 <. Unfortunately Ken's version did not have a way to export humidors. Apple sees this as an entirely new app so they won't interrelate.

If you have v1.x then you will benefit from the updates to the database due in a couple weeks just like people with v2.x<. People with version 2.0 will be able to upgrade to v3.0 for free and all future versions.

If you have a 1.x version (ken's version) you will need to buy the new app v3.x< to gain all the new features.

I am going to offer a special heavily discounted price for a short time to make it easier for people with the early version to upgrade. When this is available, I will announce it on this site as well as elsewhere when that happens. It will be available aproximately when the database update goes live in a few weeks.

Thanks for your understanding. I hope that I'm adding enough value to the app to make it worth the switch.

Sincerely,
Colin

After waiting for 4 years, my Verizon Iphone finally arrived today & this was the very first app I bought for it. (it wouldn't work on my Ipod Touch v1) Thanks Ken & Colin!

Version 3.0 of Mobile Stogie is now available for download and updating your version if you have 2.0 or higher.

We have been working on this for a long time and it is a relief to have it in the app store now. I think people will be very happy with it because it improves search and fixes some issues that were in previous versions.

In addition to that, 3.0 adds the ability to review and rate cigars. Check it out. You can be as specific or general as you want, using stars or descriptions. Also, you can add photos to your cigars in your humidors. So if you do a review and want to take a picture, you can do all that now.

The database of cigars is being updated now and I will let everyone know as soon as it gets published. This update will be available for people with any version of the app.
