The hipKey made a quick dash to the #1 spot in “app-enabled” accessories in the US Apple on-line store the other day.
Well done 🙂
On the downside, it seems a few customers are having stability issues which are almost certainly due to incomplete BT pairing – if initial pairing is not completed properly, iOS ends up in some weird limbo state where it will only stay connected for a few seconds at a time. Un-pairing and pairing again usually fixes it.
Another reported issue has been lack of iPad mini support, but an update which fixes this is due as soon as Apple approves it, so hang in there :). We were caught a bit off guard by the mini: Since there was no non-retina BLE enabled iOS devices before it came along, we only ever tested the app on retina devices, assuming it would just work on the mini. It didn’t.
