Hello again! Where have you been? I missed you! I’ve been neck deep in business. We had a record month in March and truth be told I’m happy to wrap it up. Our Mission Repair anniversary is tomorrow (Yes it’s on April Fools Day!) and we are planning a little BBQ luncheon and cake for the company. It’s going to be great to get outside (will be 80 degrees out tomorrow) and we can get a little sunshine on our faces at the same time!
We have made it through another HUGE project here at Mission Repair and we have officially submitted our very first iPhone and iPod Touch App to Apple. We are just now waiting out the approval process and you can be sure that I’ll let you know when you can get his free app! It’s very exciting and we are thrilled to be at the end of this process and get the project into Apple’s hands. Here’s what you’ll see on your iPhone Desktop:
The PROTECT ME (patent pending) app will enroll your iPhone into our iPhone Protection Plan from your location anywhere in the USA. You’ll be able to apply coverage against breakage and add extended protection that will cover your phone even after the manufacturer warranty expires. It’s a fantastic deal and it’s the first program of its kind- where the same award-winning iPhone Repair company sells the protection plan AND performs the service on the iPhone. Check it out, and it’s only here at Mission Repair!
OK, I’ll be back soon with more app updates and more app fun. Take care, talk to you again very soon!
Hello everyone. Oh man, I can’t WAIT for Spring Break. Ooops. It was last week wasn’t it!! My kids are already back in school and looking forward to the end of the year. I think this was their last BIG break until Summer vacation. Good luck kiddos!!
I was hanging out with our Mission Repair Operations Manager, Troy, this afternoon and he showed me a cool little application for Extracting your backups from your iPhone. Per Troy, it’s easy to use and simple as 1.2.3. and he’s personally used it. The author is a freelance programmer, so if you use it, it’s OK to give a little. You’ll feel great about it even though it’s a donation in Euros. Yeah, you’ll need a converter if you’re USA bound like we are 😉
What does this application do for you? Per the website “This application converts the iPhone / iPod Touch backups that are created by iTunes into readily usable Mac OS X files. It is designed to run on “Leopard” Mac OS X 10.5 upwards.”
Per Troy he’s used it for getting pictures off his old back ups. Here’s his story: “The day my son was born, I took all of the “first pictures and videos” on my iPhone 3GS. About 2 months later when my wife asked to see these pictures and videos I realized I no longer had them on my phone! Through various restores and updates, I had completely wiped my phone clean. I had about 8 different back-ups to choose from on my iTunes and didn’t want to restore my phone 8 different times to find the right one. Luckily, I came across this application and was saved from the fury of my wife!”
I don’t know why this caught my eye, but I thought that I’d spend just a little time talking about it. So there you have it. Have a great week!
Yes, it’s an exciting time! The programmers over at Backlight Software are feverishly running through and debugging the app, as well as adding last minute additions and information.
What is this new app going to do for you?
Well to get right to the point- it’s going to allow you to run a complete scan and diagnosis of your iPhone from your location. With a “passing” score, you can then buy our exclusive MPG iPhone Protection Plan (right from the app!) then rest easy – with our MPG plan (which is like iPhone Insurance) adds glass breakage and other failures for a one-time fee. It’s a guarantee of the performance of the iPhone. With coverage plans ranging from one to two years, you almost can’t afford not to protect your iPhone (or iPod Touch!). Stay tuned, more coming soon!
My business partner, Kyle, just sent me a text. . .that he’s at the Olathe Medical Center and his wife’s water broke. This means that he’s gonna be a brand new daddy within the next 24 hours. Just awesome! She’s right on her due date and they arrived at the hospital early this morning. As I understand it, everything seems to be progressing nicely!
It sounds like I’ll be at the hospital counting fingers and toes into the wee hours of the morning. It’s kinda nice being the voice of experience in situations like this, I hope I can help them out with their day! Nicole is VERY ready to have this baby so I’m glad the day is here.
I’ll be back soon with the announcement and vital statistics. If I know Kyle, this kid already has an iPhone waiting for him next to the crib 😉
I’ll be in touch.
Oh, by the way, we are performing a functional test of our iPhone App tomorrow. Crossing our fingers that the revisions and bugs are minimal. I’ll be in touch about this soon, it’s “due date” is also drawing near!
