Recent Server Outages

Appseeq has been plagued by server problems recently, after a server migration at the host end was messed up – something completely outside our control. Pretty frustrating, but we’re working on getting things back to normal, which will probably mean switching to a more reputable provider in the coming weeks.

The good news is, site performance should improve dramatically going forward, so please bare with us while we deal with things. We are still accepting app submissions as per usual, but you might notice the site going down occasionally.

Brief Downtime 31/8/13

The site will be down for about an hour around midnight 31st Aug 2013 while we implement and test some new features. After going live for a 'quiet launch' a week ago, it's time to make some tweaks here and there based on user feedback and some minor bugs we uncovered.

These updates include..

  • Bug fixes
  • Tweaks to the privacy settings
  • Adding 'Editor's Review' to app pages
  • Back-end updates to speed up the review process

More soon!

Reinventing Appseeq

Appseeq (formerly 'appSeeq') has spent the last 4 months being re-written from the ground up, and will launch as an entirely new service in September 2013. It's taken a lot of planning, coding and testing (and re-testing) to transform the old site into something both app developers and app users should find useful.

Things are moving ahead of schedule, but there's still plenty of loose-ends to tie off before the site goes live (at the time of writing, Appseeq v2.0 is running on a local development server).

So what is about to change?

  1. Apps can now be submitted, and edited by the developer at any time
  2. Appseeq sports a brand-new look, with improved search & navigation
  3. Apps for all major platforms (Windows,Mac,Linux,iOS,Android) are catered for
  4. User profiles and company profiles connect apps to people
  5. Developers can set up [time limited] deals and discounts
  6. 'Connections', voting and commenting bring a more sociable experience

The review process has also been streamlined, making it easier for an Appseeq 'editor/reviewer' to approve user-submitted apps, which means no more long wait times between submitting an app, and seeing it live on the site.
