Square Connect - The Puck
« on: May 25, 2010, 06:26:33 pm »
Hi All,

Does anyone know if SQ are still developing the Wi-Fi - IR device, 'The Puck'

It's long awaited but no additional info to be found anywhere?

Can anyone shed any light??

Thanks

I hope the development of this product has Android functionality in mind.  Kinda hard to avoid such a fast growing market.
If it does then as your WiKi says it will "knock my socks off" otherwise.... not.

junglewave: I'm pretty sure Mat was wearing his "developer hat" when he said "two weeks." So, that's two months to you and me.

Apologies to everyone that is waiting for more news.... we are working fervently to get SQ Remote and the hardware (puck) to the point where we can release. There have been quite a few gotcha's that have bitten us, that we felt needed to be addressed ... we are very close...

Unlike Mat, I will refrain from giving time lines until we are sure that we have come far enough to release the product. But it is very close.

As soon as we are there we will be shouting from the roof tops.

Just a quick update on this, we have completed 2.0 and submitted it to the app store. We expect it to be available in the next few weeks - as long as there are no "Apple" hiccups. 2.0 has full UI4 compatibility as well as full compatibility with our SQ Blaster hardware (aka the "Puck").  This hardware will be released very soon. I am hesitant to give specific dates, as there are many moving parts in the process of having this manufactured.

More info will follow when we make an official announcement. (soon - I promise)

Are there other updates to SQ Remote besides the UI4 integration? I am on the fence of buying SQ Remote and was curious to know of any other changes or features.
