Final cross promotion and freebie changes

As planned, Smiles Zen 1.3 and Smiles Drop 1.3 were sent late Friday night (technically 5 AM the next day). I made the mentioned addition of arrows after discovering some people didn’t realize you could click on the icon. Here’s a snap of that from the iPhone build on the PC.

Cross promotion, now with arrows!

I had some friends look at this screen, and got a good reaction from the “love hearts”, so I made a similar change to free version.

Free Smiles, now with more LOVE.

Also now, the “support the developer!” starburst takes the place of the music instructions. It works just like clicking on the Smiles icon does (brings up a popup confirming that you want to open the store). And for fun, all the popups play the “Woo Hoo!” sound like the Zen and Drop cross promotion does. For the free version only, I’ll be making clicking “no” play the “Aww!” sound, as there’s really no other place to fit that in.

My hope is to be finished integrating the 1.3 updates and testing by noon Sunday (i.e. today). I’ve actually been up since 1:30 AM, which is one of the perks of being self employed (your hours don’t have to make sense).

Monday I’m hoping to be back on the PC version of Smiles. I’d like a release candidate finished before the end of the month, so I can iron out the distribution plans.

EDIT: Free Smiles 1.3 sent to Apple. That’s all of them.
