APP Update! (ElkNut)
« on: May 10, 2017, 11:29:45 AM »

  Hey guys, I've had several ask about the APP & how it's doing! Well, it's doing well!! We have 250 beta testers standing by & it will be released to them on Friday, Saturday & Sunday of this week! Sweet! (grin) You who are receiving it will notice there is a "Feedback Button" please use it & give us a short response if you like it or what you may want to see different! This is a TEST ONE! The actual APP will go LIVE on June 1st!

It will have a Mouth Reed Use section (video clip) at topof main page for those interested in proper reed selection per individual & it's exact position & use for Cow & Bull sounds! It's a very informative piece!

Next, you will notice the first 5 of 10 sounds being released! These 5 sounds will each have their own 2 minute or so video clip on actual reed placement & use for that specific elk sound! Very cool! There will be two buttons for that sound, one is the sound given by me & the other button is by a real elk giving the sound. This is a great way to learn & compare yourselves to how you sound! As you scroll down there are questions & answers asked as to when & how to use this sound in a hunting situation. It's very detailed so you do not have to fill in the blanks!

The next 5 sounds will be available towards end of month so as not to slam folks with too much at first. They are a free update as part of the initial membership fee. Updates will be following afterwards as we release & unreal amount of info on everything elk hunting towards methods & techniques. There is nothing like this APP anywhere, you will see!

The photos I'm sharing here is a prototype but the actual testing one will have more flavor & the icons will be correct. The photos are a sample of what's coming! Above all, it's very affordable! Hopefully a few of the testers here will share what they've reviewed!

Feel free to ask any questions! Thank You!

I'm having some problems downloading the app... No doubt due to my poor smart phone skills! I sent an email to Dustin at test flight to try and get another invite as I somehow used mine without getting the app downloaded  :bash: Good talking with you this afternoon Paul, I can't get elk hunting off my mind since our conversation! This app is going to be an incredible resource if it's half as good as I think it's going to be! Thanks for sharing your knowledge

Thanks guys!

  High Climber, great talking with you too bud! Is the Test Flight tab or the ElkNut tab on your phone? If either of them are you need to click on them to open & install where it says "UPDATE" Are you being taken care of?  I assume you did have the Apple phone? Andrioids are a couple days behind at this time but will receive it!

 When you filled out the 5 question survey which asked you what Iphone you had, you then submit it. Then a follow up email will come from Apple. You click that link provided & go to Test Flight APP link on your phone & now Install Update! That will download the Test APP. You will want to be somewhere you have a strong Wifi service so it's done in minutes or else it will take hours to download.

Guys, once APP is available you will only have to purchase it like you would a song from itunes & it will download automatically. This portion is different because it's a test & not the real APP yet!

A new email is being sent to everyone today, if you are already downloaded then disregard it. If you still haven't downloaded the APP open it & follow the instructions, the email may be from APPLE so do not delete it thinking it's spam. Thanks everyone!

p.s. Android phones still cannot download until aprox May 20th, they are taking care of that at present, thanks for your patience!

Yes, an email with instructions! (grin) If you have an Apple Iphone you should have already received your Survey questions? If so you would then go to Test Flight in the APP Store once you received your Apple email & Install the Download. Maybe you did receive it & thought is was Junk & deleted it? Just tossing thoughts out here! (grin)

  If any are having issues please let me know, this is what the Testing is for!

LeviD1, the beta testing part of the APP was free to those that signed up for it previously, it is no longer available, we are full. They received 5 elk sounds with short video clips on how the specific sound is made & then a detailed explanation on its use by the elk & by us hunters. There's also 2 clips on mouth reed use & how to select the proper reed per individual & where it's placed in ones mouth for best positioning!

  The actual LIVE version of the APP will include more sounds & info on June 1st. It can be purchased then for 4.99 from the APP Store on ones Iphone or Android. The APP will have volumes of info as it moves forward! Thanks!

I really like the simplicity of the app, the wild sounds, the explanations. I can't wait to see the full version when you release it, Paul. Thanks so much for asking us to be part of this project.  :tup:

Any update on the Android beta version. I'm getting nervous that I missed something as my last email is from the 12th after submitting the questionnaire. Thank you.

Sean, an email was supposed to go out yesterday to Android users? Can you please check your junk/spam folder to see. Emails are not from me, they are from an outside source building the APP, it could also have an Apple heading, if so read before deleting! (grin) Let us know if you received this email, thanks bud!

I got an email this morning for the Android download. Works fine so far. Haven't had much chance to play with it so far.

Pretty cool so far! Can't imagine if i'd had something like this 10 years ago!
