As you probably noticed, Survivalcraft 1.22 has been available on all platforms for some time now. I updated the message of the day, so you should see update notification if you’re still on an older version.
In an amazing departure from their earlier performance, Apple approved 1.22 literally within hours. I submitted in on the morning of 19th of July. By early afternoon status changed to “In Review”, and shortly after midnight of the same day it passed. Awesome!
The scoreboard now stands as follows:
Microsoft 2; Apple 1; Amazon 1
To celebrate this I am getting myself a brand new retina Macbook Pro. It’s because I will be away from the office for the next month or so, and I don’t want to be forced to code on my old trusty laptop (which has a really awful screen).
Initially I wanted to buy a super high res Windows 8 laptop with a touchscreen, but then I realized I won’t be able to test iOS build of Survivalcraft on it. And then Apple outdid themselves… So it will be a Macbook :-) Shame I can’t wait for the Haswell model, which is probably just around the corner.
On Survivalcraft front, I am thinking about what to include in 1.23. There are some definite priorities. I will let you know in the next post.
Almost forgot. Thank you for all the birthday wishes!
