What’s been keeping us busy lately

February 14, 2009 – 10:49 am

We are currently developing the web component of our application as well as a simplified Java midlet to work on all sorts of phones, since low-tech phones represent the bulk of the market, and will continue to do so in the foreseeable future.

On a sidenote, I wanted to express my admiration for the guys at XDA Developers who have successfuly managed to make Android run on my beloved HTC Tilt (kaiser/p4450) with working data connection. This is nothing short of amazing.

To conclude, we get many emails asking us when our application will be available for the iPhone. As much as we’d love to port Piggyback to the iPhone, this is not currently possible, technically speaking, since Apple doesn’t allow processes to run in the background of the phone. As long as this technical limitation isn’t lifted, no Piggyback on the iPhone… (added to the FAQ)
