2015 Mission Repair Blog in review.

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2015 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The Louvre Museum has 8.5 million visitors per year. This blog was viewed about 120,000 times in 2015. If it were an exhibit at the Louvre Museum, it would take about 5 days for that many people to see it.

We definitely hit a few “highs” this year on our blog, and by far reaching over 1 million unique new readers was one of the best.  I’ve been aiming for that goal for some time now, are we are on our way to 2 million!

One of our most read blogs is still from 2011 titled “What is an iPhone Digitizer“.  We’ve definitely gotten some mileage out of that one!

Thanks again for everyone’s readership, we really appreciate it.  Take your time traveling as the 2015 year closes and you can count on the fact that we will be here in 2016.

Sincerely, Ryan

 

Have You Heard About Apple’s New iPad Air 2?

That’s right. Apple released a new iPad Air that has brand new features and I wanted to take a moment to talk about it.

The new iPad Air is 18% thinner making it the thinnest iPad ever. Consequently, it is also lighter than the original iPad Air. The iPad Air 2 is also available in a gold version (much like the iPhone) AND offers Touch ID. This is the same function that the iPhone 5S has – users are able to unlock their device and various apps with the touch of a finger. According to Apple, they have redesigned the Retina display to offer even more vivid colors and better contrast. Lastly, this iPad has an anti-reflective coating – the ONLY iPad with this new feature.

Specs:

  • Retina display
  • 9.7 inch (diagonal) LED‑backlit Multi‑Touch display with IPS technology
  • 2048 x 1536 resolution at 264 pixels per inch (ppi)
  • Fingerprint-resistant oleophobic coating
  • Fully laminated display
  • Antireflective coating
  • Height: 9.4 inches
  • Width:6.6 inches
  • Depth:0.24 inch

Keep in mind, Apple isn’t promoting a launch date for their new iPads (they also released a new iPad Mini 3) like they do for iPhones, however they are expecting the new iPads to be available in stores today.

So will Mission:Repair be repairing these units? YOU BET. Keep an eye out for New iPad 2 Repair Services coming soon!

Happy Friday,

Tired of dust and fingerprints on your computer screen? We have the answer.

Good morning!photo 3

Yesterday we got in a large batch of Blow Off electronic cleaning supplies and as I was pricing them and putting them on display in our lobby I knew I had to try them out! If you are like me, you don’t always remember to clean your laptop (or TV or tablet or smartphone) screen until it is covered in fingerprints. When it gets to this point – it needs a cleaning solution that is heavy duty on finger prints but delicate on your device and these cleaning supplies do just that! We offer several different Blow Off cleaning supplies and the ones I purchased were the Electronics Cleaner and the Microfiber Shammy.

I simply followed the instructions on the can by covering my keyboard with a towel and spraying the solution 6-8 inches towards the screen. Then, I allowed the foam to work it’s magic for about 30 seconds on the screen. Lastly, I wiped off the screen with the microfiber shammy and voila!

Before and After - Amazing!

Before and After – Awesome!

These cleaning products aren’t just for computer screens either. You can use it on TVs, tablets, smartphones, printers, stereos and just about any other electronic you have in your house and not be scared that they will damage it. Check out our full list of cleaning supplies or give us a call at 1-866-638-8402 for more information!

Have a great day,

Melanie

Cement shoes.

Hello again everyone-

Wow, the construction progress is really coming along up at our Mission Repair Express location. I want to apologize for all of you that braved the construction mess yesterday. If you stopped by our Mission, Kansas location for a smartphone repair you saw that the sidewalk directly in front of our store was GONE! The jackhammers came out yesterday morning and drilled all day long.

Today, we have a BRAND NEW BEAUTIFUL sidewalk! The contractors said that we can walk on it in about 2 more hours, so the construction “pain” is almost complete. The issue is that it’s wet now; so if you make the trek in the next hour you might find yourself with some cement shoes. Please be patient – the weather is cooperating with us and it’s HOT outside. My guess is that within a couple of hours it will be ready!

Thanks for your patronage. We had over 50 people walk in to our Mission location yesterday despite the construction; thank you. I promise that it’s almost over!

Best, Ryan

iPad Screen Repair Center – yes, in your hometown.

Good afternoon-

Did you know that we can repair your iPad, even if you’re located in Denver, Colorado? But what if you live in Austin, Texas? Or maybe Atlanta, Georgia?

Mission Repair DOES take walkins at any of our locations with no appointment necessary, but the main core of our business is still mail-in repairs. In fact, we can pick up your device even if you live in Concord, California. We will take the guesswork out of mail-in services, and it’s one of the reasons we can keep our prices low. In fact, we cover the entire 48 States top to bottom and on a daily basis it’s good to get to know a customer that lives in Boise, Idaho. We chat on the phone, decipher what is wrong with your iPad, have it picked up from your location, repair it, and deliver it back to you.

There’s no better way to get an iPad, iPhone, iPod or other hand held electronic device repaired if you don’t want to battle the traffic, lines and congestion of a retail location.

Yes, of course you can stop by one of our locations and drop it off as well…But since we don’t have a store in every town across the country we make things simple by completing your repair remotely.

Interested in sending your device into us? Give us a call 866-638-8402 and we’ll be glad to help you out!

Take care, Ryan

School is out!

Hello friends, school is out!

Well it is here in Kansas anyway. My daughter Tayler finished her second year of college this week and she’s on her hiatus until the fall. My son Casey finished his Junior year of high school and shot me a text yesterday at 11:36am saying “I’m done!” It’s also apparent as several of our customers this morning had their children with them when visiting us here at Mission Repair- Summer Vacation is upon us. My wife Dandra who is an Elementary school librarian, is officially on Summer break today at noon. Yup, I’m a bit envious.

We don’t get to take summers off here at Mission Repair 😉

I spoke to my oldest friend Nolan who still lives in California and he said that his kids are still in school for a couple more weeks…so it’s just starting to happen around the country.

This means summer vacations, BBQ cookouts, family time and nice weather (hopefully) for the most of us, with thoughts of splashing in the water – that just sounds good.

Personally I’ve got “boating” on the mind and we’re jazzed up to get some sunshine soon. This Memorial Day Weekend marks the beginning of summer for a lot of us and as of right now it appears that I have 3 days off without anything planned which is a first! We all need to take a break from time to time.

Whatever your plans are I hope you spend a little time enjoying your weekend. We have a great newsletter going out this afternoon with a special attached for anyone that might need our services over the weekend; so stay tuned and have a great day.

Take care, Ryan
