The Future of My Vacation

Dear My Vacation users,

I can announce big news regarding the future of My Vacation! My Vacation was my first iOS app back in 2010 and has been downloaded over 180,000 times!

As is clear though from the lack of activity on this blog my focus has moved onto other projects. I have always been committed to respond to support queries and make sure the app works on new devices. However, that does not go far enough and those of you using the app deserve more.

I imagined how I'd feel if I saw My Vacation updated without my doing, and it would make me feel positively happy :) I'd be pleased to pass on ownership for the good of the app, and of course for the freedom it would give me personally.

I have sold the app to a new company called Pixyax who have assured me preservation of your trips will be a priority and they will start improving the app again over the coming months.

“I am very excited about acquisition of My Vacation App by Pixyax. We will be releasing a new version by end of summer with new and improved photo/video editing and sharing functionality. We like to hear from My Vacation App user’s requests and recommendations on how to improve on this application. Please email your request to support@MyVacationApp.com” Thanks Ben

Ben has just put up a holding webpage at http://www.myvacationapp.com, which should be your port of call now for news on the app. Any support queries should go through to support@MyVacationApp.com.

Thanks for those along the way who helped me take My Vacation from an idea to the app it became. I had some valuable design help from @stevedesigner and @_nickjones, business support from @maxgaet and Pitch & Mix, some intrepid testing by Harry Dixon, and was fortunate to include some superb compositions from @choiby.

Finally thanks to you who bought the app and supported me. I hope you have enjoyed being able to record and relive the memories of your travels, and will do for a long time to come!

All the best,

Tony
