Vibe Vault V3.0

Since we launched at the end of last year, Vibe Vault has been a great success (in our opinions). We're closing in on 15,000 downloads, and have received overwhelmingly positive feedback from our users. It runs well on Android 2.1, 2.2, 2.3, 2.3.3 and 3.0 (we haven't done much testing on the pre-2.1 releases, because hardly any devices run them). There are at least 10 different countries with over 25 Vibe Vault users (we have 82 in Saudi Arabia?). To say the least, it's been cool to see our app catch on.

The glorious and somewhat meteoric rise of Vibe Vault:


Most recently, we released Version 3.0, which includes voting (check it out if you haven't) and facebook and twitter integration. We've also included a large number of bug fixes, performance enhancements, and graphical improvements. Looking at screenshots of V1.1 and V3.0 really show how much the app has changed over the relatively short period of time that it's been released:

As for the future, we plan to continue adding new features, speeding things up, and fixing bugs. Particularly, we want to get things working for HTC Inspire users, and find a way to get more people voting on shows. You can check out our source code (GPL v3) at http://code.google.com/p/vibevault/source/browse/. If you don't already have Vibe Vault (or you haven't given us a rating), check us out on the Android Market: https://market.android.com/details?id=com.code.android.vibevault&feature=search_result.

Anyway, thanks for your support, and feel free to leave some feedback.

  2. I have a rather strange problem - I'm running the current version on my Galaxy S2 (no ICS update yet), and when I download more than four Grateful Dead shows, it downloads the show, BUT doesn't include the band or show info, and in my downloads list it's got the entries in the list, but they're completely blank. This is only happening with the Dead.

  3. Hey,

    For one, thanks for using VibeVault. We are working on an ICS update with tablet optimizations and general improvements for VV on all devices. We are aware of your problem, and are working on a fix. I have seen this with other bands, too, so I do not think that the issue is related specifically to the Dead. We are going to try to expedite getting this fix out, so hold tight. Also, sorry for the delayed response.

    -Andrew
