Have you Suffered today, Sufferlandrians?
Back in May, I wrote an update about what was happening with The Sufferfest app. I didn’t say too much in that post about what we were doing. We were – and are still – working on something big. And I still can’t say too much about it. Which I know drives everyone crazy. Including me.
However! What I can say is that we’re really nearing the finishing stages now. We have a fully functioning app, Sufferlandrians testing it on multiple platforms, and just a few more things to push in before it’s ready to go. It feels like we’ve been working on it for years. Probably because we have.
In any case, it’s exciting, but also a bit stressful as we work hard to get everything done, tested and refined. We’re pretty well locked-in on launching around the start of the (Northern Hemisphere) indoor season (intentionally vague launch period there). And we’re not just bringing you new features. Oh no. Rather, this is an entirely new app with some new concepts and plenty of new content and it works on Android. It’s a fresh, modern platform that will set our direction for the future. Based on how our Sufferlandrian beta testers have reacted, I can say right now that you’ll be genuinely surprised and, I hope, delighted by what we’ve come up with. The team and I are very proud of it.
So, with all that in mind and so you know this really is going to happen, I wanted to give you all a heads up – well in advance – on what we suggest you have in order to best run this new platform. It will, most likely, work on OS below these specs, but these are the minimums which we will officially support:
- iPhone/iPad: iOS 14
- Mac Computers: Catalina 10.15
- Windows Computers: Windows 10 (v1903)
- Android: Android 9
PS. More to come as we get closer to launch. Thank you for your patience – I know it’s been a long wait. And while you can’t download a new app yet, at least you can get a Laser Goat T-Shirt and National Flag
