New Badge

Just wanted to let you know about a couple updates we have recently added to the Connect IQ Store.

  1. New Badge - New apps will now have a New Badge for the first 14 days they are in the store.  We added this to give more visibility to the new apps in the store as a user browses around.  This badge will be shown on both the lists and detail page views. 
  2. Minimum SDK check - We are continuously working to provide new features and improvements to the developer tools available in the SDK.  To make sure uploaded apps have the latest and greatest version of the SDK we have added an SDK Version check to the process.  This will make sure that your app is able to take advantage of these improvements.

If you have questions on either of these please post them to the forum.

You know what else is amazing??  In June we announced that we reached the 1 Million downloads threshold, which was very exciting to us!  We continue to be amazed at the growth we are seeing in this platform because to get to 1 Million it took about 6 months but over July there were already 600,000 more downloads!  Amazing! 

This is a testament to the value and innovation that you our developer community is bringing to this platform. 

Thank you for all you do and we look forward to seeing what’s next!
