Nominated for a Webby!

We’ve been nominated for the Best Use of GPS or Location Technology category in the 18th Annual Webby Awards, presented by the International Academy of Digital Arts & Sciences.

Nothing would help validate what we’re doing more than being recognised with a Webby, which is like the Oscars but for the internet!

Help us by voting for Pin Drop to join the best of the web in 2014.

Still Having Facebook Problems?

Facebook

A huge thanks to Andreas for discovering this for us:

"When I checked the iOS Facebook settings, Pin Drop was not allowed to use the facebook account settings (from the previous version, settings migration?). After enabling access, Pin Drop FB connections do work (only if you allow Pin Drop to post on your behalf though, else you get an SDK error message)".

If any of you are still having issues with Facebook login using 3.0.1 then this (should) fix it.

Pin Drop & HBO Girls

We noticed a large bump in traffic on the app and website at the beginning of the week. It took a little bit of investigating but eventually we tracked the source down to an episode of the new HBO show "Girls" that was broadcast on Sunday.

Adam: You okay?

Hannah: I’ll be f*****g more okay if you leave me alone. I’m sending a drop pin.

Adam: Okay.

A lot of the show’s fans wanted to check out what these characters meant and stumbled upon our little app. Thanks HBO!

The Great Wall of China can be seen from space (although it is not the only man made structure visible) and soon you will be able to spot it from within Pin Drop!
