Update from December


An exciting year is coming to an end. Development, production and delivery of our building sets have been more than demanding. But now all kits have been sent out and most of you probably already hold their building sets in hands.

The Tinkerbots Controls app for Android 5+ has been available since last week in the Google Play Store and we are already working on a fallback option for older devices based on Android 4.4. Since last Monday, the iOS version of the app can be downloaded from the App Store as well. For Apple devices with smaller displays (iPhone 5, or iPod touch) we were confronted with a bug which we could fix already, though. But until Apple releases the new version, it may take a few days. Thank you for your patience.

In the meantime, when using an iPhone 5 or iPod touch in order to select the models you need to use the very top of your fingertip to touch a very small area at the top of the writing “select” (see picture). With a little patience you will manage this. But as mentioned before, the update is already uploaded and is awaiting the approval by Apple.

The Android version of the app includes already controls for Top Dog and Donnergugi. In the iOS version we will update this quickly. Luckily both models can be controlled using the teach-in mode, showing them movements with your hands. Please note: teach movements slowly and then use + and – to adjust the speed in the playback mode.

On 24th and 25th December we will hardly be able to accept phone calls or to answer emails. We have all had no weekends or a day off for many weeks and desperately need a little breather. We hope you can understand that. But we will be available again very soon and we try to answer urgent question at any time.

Now we would like to wish you all a happy holiday season and a lot of fun with your new building sets.
