We apologize for not releasing updates during the last months, but we've been too busy refining the blueprints and starting the project of the BardCanvas Mobile platform.

What lies ahead

While coding the modules for the mobile platform, we might need to make other changes and push them without notifications. If that's the case, we'll wrap up all updates in a single article.

We plan to release the changes of the mobile platform no later than the end of this year. The roadmap at this point is simple:

  1. Finish the modules required for the BardCanvas websites to export stuff to the mobile platform.
  2. Finish the coding of the hybrid app for both Android and iOS.
  3. Test everything at home.
  4. Register on Google and Apple to get signing certificates.
  5. Start the test and debug protocols to ensure approval on Google Play and iTunes.
  6. Release the Kraken!

If everything goes as planned, by the beginning or the middle of January of the next year we'll be launching a campaign for our app in all our media channels. Make sure to follow us on Facebook or Twitter if you want to receive the update 😊
