We have big ideas. All of them are good ideas too. There is no shortage of them. The problem is saying no to most of them in order to deliver the right ideas first. Imagine trying to decide the seven fingers you want to keep. It’s a daily debate held in a leadership meeting or my head as I juggle the production schedule. Our current feature list could carry us through the rest of 2012 and that doesn’t include an Android app which several users have requested.
On the other side, we know there are bugs in the product and we thank all of our users for their feedback. We record and investigate each one. We prioritize these as well. We tend to fix bugs that affect the largest group of users first. Beyond that we address the ones that cause us the most personal pain or affect features we plan on improving soon.
Our goal with each new product release is to include at least one new feature along with bug fixes and polish. Apple’s review process limits how often we can push out new versions but know we prefer a higher frequency of product iteration.
Three final and somewhat related notes.
· We are looking to grow our product team which will speed up our version releases. If you know any web developers who want to make the jump to startup life, tell them to mention @LesPorter in a tweet.
· We submitted our latest iOS update to Apple today and it includes lots of fixes and improvements. You definitely will want to update the KYCK when you see the App Store notification in about a week.
· Lastly, we’re working on a big update that will include a lot of new functionality for soccer teams and fútbol clubs. Send me an email or tweet if you would like your club to be considered in our alpha testers group.
Feel free to contact me if you have any questions and thanks again to all of our users who share their KYCK experience with us and others.
