The first week is behind us...


We complete our first full week of deployment and it has been fun and tiring at the same time. Its a great feeling to build something that people are using and finding valuable. And this is just the beginning! We have grand plans.

Through this blog, I would like to keep sharing with you the 'behind-the-scenes' picture of RedWhiteBoston. Be warned ... some of the posts may get very technical. I can't help it. I am a techie ;-)

SO, we have had multiple requests from stores asking for Facebook links, Twitter links, links to their blogs etc. We thought that this might be quite useful for the consumers to have this information in one place. So, we decided to give our store partners the flexibility to define any 3 URLs of their choice. Also, they can change these URLs at their own convenience if they so choose to. This change was pushed out yesterday. So you should be able to see this change on the website and mobile browsers.

For those with the iPhone app, the update (1.1.0) will be pushed out soon (its with Apple right now waiting for approval). Your phones should prompt you for an update once the update has been approved by Apple. Its definitely a bit annoying that Apple gods have to approve every single application update and it takes a good amount of time before the update becomes available to users.

The store details design has a changed a bit. Let us know whether this design works for you! Talking about feedback, I would also like to tell you about this neat little tool that we found to capture your ideas and opinions. We will be linking our website to this tool. You can find it at Its pretty nice since you can also vote on other's ideas. Check it out and let the creative juices start flowing.

I would also like to share some tips and tricks on some of the application features that may not be readily apparent. So today's tip - If you have the iPhone app, and you are looking at the details on a particular wine, tap the wine label to zoom into the label picture. This will let you see the label a bit more clearly!

More stay tuned!

We had another successful wine tasting today at Gypsy Kitchen. Featured four great wines, some new cheeses, honey from Italy and a killer balsamic vinegar. Not long before the holiday season is here.
