Updates on the Seamless and Flow Launch; BeoSound 8 Winner Announced

Come tomorrow, two weeks will have passed since we launched our new company, simultaneously introducing Seamless and offering a major update to Flow.


Seamless Highlights

The past two weeks have been a whirlwind of phenomenal feedback about Seamless. It turns out that we’re not the only ones who love to take their music, to go:

  • "Completely bewitched by @fivedetails Seamless app. It’s just a magical little thing.” -Ben Hammersley
  • "Thank you so much for taking a problem as old as iPod and replacing it with an experience like Seamless." -@skywinston
  • "Can’t say enough about Seamless! Breakfast, to yardwork, to daddy duty, my music goes where I do." -Joshua Nichols
  • "…where have you been all my (iPhone’d) life? Wow." -Leo M.
  • "…feels like stepping into the future. Truly magical." -Kevin Clark
  • "An app that I didn’t know I needed, but now I have to have it." -Evan Walsh, App Store Review

It’s not just users, either. Seamless has been featured all around the web, on sites like Engadget, Wired, Lifehacker, Macworld, and Gizmodo.

We’ve got updates in the pipeline for both the iOS and Mac apps that fix the remainder of the known issues.

Love Seamless? Leave a review on the App Store, and you’ll make our day.


Winner of Bang & Olufsen BeoSound 8 Contest Announced

Maureen Boyle (@CatMorland) was announced as the winner of Seamless’ Tweetblast contest for the best iPhone speaker-dock on the planet — the Bang & Olufsen BeoSound 8 — this morning, via twitter.

We’re thrilled to give such phenomenal speakers away — and we know Maureen is going to find herself simply incapable of not rockin’ out with Seamless. Prior to winning the BeoSound 8, Seamless reminded her of the late (but forever amazing) Douglas Adams, who said:

…to be able to move from total ignorance of something to total desire for it, and then actually to own the thing…

What an honor. Thank you, Maureen.


Flow Highlights

As of Flow 1.4.2, which was introduced last Thursday, there are no remaining known bugs with FTP. So if you use FTP and haven’t updated yet, do yourself a favor and grab 1.4. It’s faster, more stable, and more elegant than ever.

As promised, with FTP beginning to stabilize, SFTP is up next. We expect the improvements in both speed and stability to be as dramatic as they are with 1.4’s FTP implementation.

Rock on.
