We are currently working on a following version (3.1) of the app. Our goal is to unify the functionalities of the BedBooking iOS app with the BedBooking Android app. We encourage you to see the plan of our following updates and to report any remarks you may have.

Due to the long delay in making version 3.0 available, we owe you an explanation.

We’ve started working on version 3.0 in 2016. When we were approaching the publication on the AppStore, Apple has announced a change in term of app architecture (from 32 to 64 bit). Due to this change we had to:
– put on hold the work concerning new functionalities,
– rewrite a large portion of the app’s code anew (in Swift 2).
Due to this, the 3.0 BETA version includes less functionalities than we’ve previously assumed.

Also an additional problem occurred, as our programmer has been transferred to work on a different project. We had to establish a cooperation with a different developer. The new programmer needed time to learn the app’s code and the logic behind the functioning of the system.

On June 8th 2017 we’ve received the 3.0 BETA version for tests. The tests have been conducted by a number of people and took more than a month. Thanks to this, we were able to detect and correct more than 40 errors. Introducing corrections resulted in the need to prepare following versions of the app which then again had to pass the tests. We could not afford to write automatic tests as this would result in delaying the app for following months.

We won’t also hide the fact that when it comes to developing and iOS app, finances play an important role. The simultaneous development of the app on the Android and iOS platforms, consumed large amounts of financial resources. We also invest in other functionalities such as for example an integration with booking.pl. We execute a large portion of investments with our personal resources, which requires us to manage the available budget in an optimal manner.

We would like to once again apologize for the delay. This was a lesson from which we have learned. It will help us to avoid similar situations in the future.
