“This week was the first week is this awesome company. I have been working with a lot of new cutting-edge technologies such as Kothlin multiplatform Combine and SwiftUI. This week I have been developing OTP and User Info Screens.”

When we started this forum, prior to you joining, we committed to weekly updates. Most investors appreciate the weekly update, as small things change in between.

As has been mentioned around throughout our updates, it had been difficult in getting an iOS engineer.

We are in the final stages of internal testing, and then those of you who have already registered to join the beta will be contacted.

As a startup, it’s important to remember that while we aspire to achieve the dates we set, it’s not always possible. We also tend to give slightly different dates as public information to that on our backend roadmap, and we are still currently on track to meet our absolute deadline for getting betas out to people.

We will continue weekly updates, and once we have the beta out, there will likely be more variety in said updates.
