It’s a pleasure to say hello to you in this first blog post. As you may know, our website www.splodge.de was offline for quite a while respectively never online. We just had this landing page with our logo, the slogan “Apps for iPad and iPhone. Stay tuned.” and there it was for over a year now. Awkward. Sincere thanks are given to all who believed in us, so that one day, Splodge will release its first app as promised.
The title of this post says: “Today is a big day for us”. This is no exaggeration, because today so many things got live: our blog, our website, the icon of our app and even the detailed description, what the app is all about. No one, not our friends or even our family came to know what we’ve planned for our first step into the world of app developers. On this day, you and everyone else can see what features the app contains or what you can do with it. Very few people did already know about that. Sometimes it was very hard for us not to tell anyone about the app, but we made it and this is over now.
When somebody was asking us what app we have on the App Store or what we are developing, we always told them that we’re designing our first app and it’s still a secret. Fortunately now we can tell such a person that we are developing an app called “Markers”. It’s not on the App Store yet, but it will be as soon as we submit our app to Apple and they approve it.
I don’t want to tell how we came to the idea of developing an app like Markers. That’s a long story and we want to share it with you later on. I can say that plans about Markers started on the very first day we registered our trade, february 18th 2010. Oh yes we know, that is quite a long time, especially in such a rapidly growing market like the technology industry.
But let’s go on with Markers. Markers is an app for pupils, students, professors, scientists, journalists and so on. To put it all in a nutshell, Markers is for everyone who must sum up many texts very quickly. You can highlight the important passages of a text in different colors with only one slide of your finger and add some notes to this markings. Thanks to Readability, you can fully concentrate on your text because the app removes everything but the plain text of the website you opened. Well, Markers brings you even more. You can sum up all the markings with just one tap: List View opens and all your important text is displayed in a compact overview including all notes. If you want to know more go to this page. We hope that the app will hit the App Store very soon, so you can test it!
For now, thanks for your support and don’t forget to share our pages and posts to make our app and Splodge popular.
