WOW!! What an incredible two weeks since we first launched GESDATE. We are truly humbled by the number of downloads, positive comments, calls, texts, etc. THANK YOU!
But we feel like the most exciting parts of GESDATE are yet to come! So if you like GESDATE now just wait….it is only going to get better!
We just submitted version 1.2 of GESDATE to the Apple App store and we are waiting on them to approve the version and then it will be available to all of you in the App store. In fact if you are using iOS7 and up, you can update the app automatically (without checking back here or in the app store) by going to Settings > iTunes & App Store > Automatic Downloads and turning on Updates.
We are so excited to keep innovation on the GESDATE platform and over the next few weeks we’ll be publishing some posts that will give you an idea of where we are going. Also, if you have something you would like added to the app or an idea you came up with we are always looking for your suggestions, ideas and feedback. We want GESDATE to be the number one tool you use on your farm!! So don’t hesitate to give us a call, email us, text or reply right here on the blog.
Until we get those posts written we thought we would give you a sneak peak into the features that are coming in 1.2. Enjoy!
