Android version released!

Finally, we have now released an Android version of Dani's Daycare!  It's taken a while, but it is now available on the Play store here.

Porting the iOS version to Android has taken about 5 months - longer than I had planned, but I've been very preoccupied lately!

I haven't got a great deal of experience developing for Android, so I admit there might be a couple of issues, but I'll be sorting any out as I find them.  It seems to work okay on the devices I've tested on (which includes the Galaxy SIII).

Hope you enjoy!

Android Version - Coming Soon!

I've been working on the Android version of Dani's Daycare over the last couple of months!  I've managed to scrape an hour here and there between spending time with my baby daughter in order to convert the iOS version to Google's system.

It's almost ready - just some rough edges to round off, then I'll submit it to the Play store.

There are hundreds of devices running Android, so I'm not going to be able to test them all, but I'll do my best to get it working on as many as I can.

I'll post here (and our Facebook page) when it's ready!

Thank You!

Thanks to everyone that's downloaded Dani's Daycare so far!  We've had over 1500 downloads and received some great feedback.  Thank you!

It's been pretty smooth sailing for the most part, but we've had a couple of issues too.

Someone on the US App Store left us some feedback - they were looking forward to playing, but the app won't load!  Unfortunately, we can't reply to reviews on the App Store, so I'm going to try to address this here as it probably affects a number of people.

We've seen an issue for users on iOS 5 where the app will crash immediately when it is launched.  I've identified the issue, so hopefully this will be resolved when we push out an update.

We've also noticed a slightly less serious issue where your online score doesn't immediately update when signed in to Facebook.  This can happen if your Internet connection suffers a blip when we update your score!  Don't worry if this happens, your score will eventually update if you keep playing.

It takes a few days for Apple to review any updates we submit, so I'd like to address both of these issues before releasing a new version - but I'm working on it!

Obviously the crashing issue can be remedied straight away if you're willing to update your version of iOS to the latest.  If you are suffering a crash, and you are on the latest version, please let me know in the comments below!

UPDATE 02 July:  We've decided to release the fix for the iOS 5 crash straight away, instead of bundling it with multiple improvements - I've struggled to find enough time to get this done as fast as I would have like - our baby daughter is taking up much of my attention at the moment!  I'll continue to work towards additional improvements, and release another update as soon as they are done.

Our new app 'Dani's Daycare' has been approved by Apple and is now available on the App Store!  It's a universal app, so right now you can play on an iPod touch, iPhone or iPad.

My wife and I have been working on this game for the last two years in our spare time, and are very happy to finally see it released.  It's taken this long partly because we've only been able to spend an hour here and there on it on evenings, and partly because it turned out to be a more complicated project than we first imagined - not to mention the time we've spent doing our house up - and the recent birth of our baby daughter!

Dani's Daycare is a time management game borne mainly from my wife's appreciation of the genre and my desire for a new project - we hope that you enjoy the result!

I'm considering releasing on Android too - that will all depend on my enthusiasm going forward and how well we are received on iOS!
