BuddyCalc not compatible with iOS 8.0 on iPhone

As already announced previously - all registered users received an e-mail too - BuddyCalc PRO has NOT been optimized for use with iOS8.0! The App is being phased out and no longer in the Store. If you upgraded to iOS8.0 or intend to do so soon, please note that BuddyCalc PRO does no longer work properly on iPhone (cannot add expenses, pull down selections do not work). If you have this problem, reset the App/iPhone (power off/on) and go back into the App but this time use the SYNC function (in menu 'More') to upload your existing events to the website (you need to be registered first!) so you can recuperate your data (using the EXPORT function on the website).
We have also installed BuddyCalc PRO on iPad 4 with iOS8.0 and on iPad this problem is not there, so iPad users can continue to use BuddyCalc PRO for the moment, although a flawless operation is not guanranteed either.

Please remember to export all you events from your personal account on ASAP.
The site will be taken offline mid November 2014.

iOS 8.0 has arrived - BuddyCalc is Phased-Out!

In line with our announcements about the phase out of BuddyCalc PRO, please note the App has NOT been optimized for use with iOS8.0. if you upgraded to iOS8.0 or intend to do so soon, please note that we do not guarantee BuddyCalc to run flawlessly on iOS8.0. Our own (limited) tests indicate that you will most likely be able to use the core functionality of BuddyCalc even after an upgrade to iOS8.0, but we will no longer provide support for iOS8.0. Thank you for your understanding. Please remember to export all you events from your personal account on ASAP. The site will be taken offline mid November 2014.

BuddyCalc PRO website OFFLINE soon!

In line with the recent announcement of the planned phase out of BuddyCalc PRO, the App has been removed from the App Store in June. The next step is that we will take the website offline mid November 2014. Please make sure you have 'Exported' all your events to your PC/Mac (either Excel format or CSV) by the end of October. We will be sending out an e-mail to all registered users as well to remind you.

BuddyCalc PRO support continues

Conform the recent announcement of the planned phase out of BuddyCalc PRO, the App has been removed from the App Store on 15 June 2014. We won’t be signing up new customers anymore, but we will continue to provide support as long as iOS 8 is not yet released. Also, this website will remain "in the air" to allow all our customers to continue to use all Buddycalc features, but also download all archived events to their computer (Excel or CSV format) before the website will be taken offline mid November 2014.

BuddyCalc PRO to Phase Out

With the announcement of the next update of its mobile operation system iOS 8 by Apple, we, the BuddyCalc team, decided to limit further investments in the BuddyCalc PRO App.
We won’t be building new features and after 15 June 2014, we won’t be signing up new customers anymore.
Initial tests show that BuddyCalc PRO V2.2 works on iOS 8, but we will not modify BuddyCalc PRO to optimise it for iOS 8 or any iOS updates hereafter.
We will keep the website ‘live’ until 15 November 2014, so you will have access to your account until that time. We will notify you in advance before we take the website offline.
It was an interesting experience for us to develop, design and market BuddyCalc PRO, but the time has come to make a rational decision about the future of BuddyCalc.
We hope you continue to enjoy using BuddyCalc PRO for a little longer, at least until iOS 8 is released.

Thank you!

Please update your version of BuddyCalc as soon as possible to enjoy all the new features. If you experience any problems with BuddyCalc and you are still using an older version of BuddyCalc we advise you to update to the latest version first.

BuddyCalc PRO Version 2.2 beta testing

The BuddyCalc team is currently busy testing a new version of BuddyCalc PRO ( V2.2). Apart from some bug fixes and minor improvements we have added some additional 'custom currencies' (CU3-CU7) for users who travel through various smaller countries and need to keep track of their expenses. Version 2.2 will also include Push Notifications for users who purchased the in-App functionality to share events with other users. This is one reason we had to migrate the website to another host/server first. Push Notifications will help to keep users of shared events informed about each other's inputs or actions. Of course you can opt to switch them off in your phone settings. We hope to submit version 2.2 to the App Store soon and will keep you informed about our progress.

April 17, 2014 migrated to another host/server

In order to facilitate Push Notifications in BuddyCalc PRO, mainly used when two users are sharing an event, we had to migrate the website to another host/server. While preparations have been going on for some time the 'big day' was yesterday and we had to put the website in maintenance mode for several hours in order to complete the migration. Today we are happy to announce the migration is completed and everything works fine. You can access your account again an retrieve all your events and/or sync your new events to your account as before. Shortly we will submit a new version of BuddyCalc PRO to the App Store. The new version (V2.2) will contain the Push Notifications but also some improvements/bug fixes and additional funbctionality, so please download the newest version at your earliest convenience.

Apple News

With the release of iOS7.1 beta 4 to iOS developers on January 21 the release date of iOS 7.1 to the public comes a bit closer. Apple will probably have another round of beta testing before iOS7.1 will be released to the public, making a March release date a likely possibility for the public version of iOS7.1

According to the Wall Street Journal, Apple is planning larger displays on a pair of new iPhones due for release this year. Early rumours suggested that there would be a 4.8in screen, but more recent rumours have suggested that the iPhone 6 could have a 5in screen.

New BuddyCalc Website - New App on its Way!

Today we launched our new website! It will still look very familiar to you and will be easy to navigate, just as the previous version. However, "beneath the surface" there are a lot of changes! We have now added the necessary functionaly to allow you to start synchronizing your events over multiple iOS devices you own (iPad, iPhone, iPod). In addition, you soon will be able to SHARE events with friends or others (e.g. roommates) if they have an iOS device and BuddyCalc PRO installed. This last function will be made available via an in-App purchase. There is more news about the new App which is almost ready to be launched in the Apple App Store, so stay tuned!  Please note that the new website functionality cannot yet be used with the current version (V1.7) of BuddyCalc PRO. You will have to wait until the new version is available. You should therefore not yet try out the new menu item "Synced/Shared Events" until you have the next BuddyCalc PRO installed.  The new App will also be iOS7 ready.
We will keep you informed!

October 17, 2012 - Release BuddyCalc PRO V1.6

After the release of iOS6, we discovered a problem with BuddyCalc PRO V1.4. We developed V1.5 which was released on Oct 15, 2012.
It turned out that there was a problem on some iOS6 devices with the architecture (arm6/arm7) we used for V1.5, so we had to develop V1.6 in order to solve this issue and asked Apple for an expedited release (fast track) for V1.6.
BuddyCalc PRO V1.6 was released on Oct 17, 2012 and we believe these problems are now solved.
We apologise for any delays between the release of iOS6 and BuddyCalc PRO V1.6 and for any inconvenience caused to all customers using BuddyCalc PRO and who upgraded to iOS6 prior to the release of BuddyCalc PRO compatible with iOS6.
We hope you continue to enjoy BuddyCalc from now on.

October 15, 2012 - Release BuddyCalc FREE V1.4

After the release of iOS6, we discovered a problem with BuddyCalc FREE V1.3. We developed V1.4 which was released on Oct 15, 2012.
We apologise for any delays between the release of iOS6 and BuddyCalc FREE V1.4 and for any inconvenience caused to all customers using BuddyCalc FREE  and who upgraded to iOS6 prior to the release of BuddyCalc FREE compatible with iOS6.
We hope you continue to enjoy using BuddyCalc from now on.
