To cheer her up - download Pickpawcket today! It's free for a very limited time
Tell her not to be sad, i downloaded it just for her

*EDIT*
Correction, it is currently being modified, but rest assured I will download it after and leave you a glowing review if I like it as much as I think.

I'm impressed.

I've been stressing all week about going free because we've managed an average of 5 star reviews in pretty much every country. I've read threads and threads about how free players rate apps much lower.

When I woke this morning we STILL have an average of 5 stars in most countries. Glad our game has (so far) stood the test of free!

If you haven't already - we'd appreciate more input from players. Either here or in the app store (or BOTH if you have the time). We listen to all player's suggestions and we spend Monday mornings talking about your suggestions!

We're working on yet another update for Pickpawcket (Who ever said a game was finished on release).

After going free for a weekend and getting a flood of feedback we'll be working on reducing the size of the app. 120mb is apparently way too much. I can't comment on how low we'll get it down to but both programmers are scratching their noggins trying to trim every bite possible.

We're also working on fixing the bug introduced by iOS5 which caused some devices (namely the original iPad and iPod Touch 4th gen) to crash when trying to load levels.

You'll see both updates as soon as we can get them finished! Happy Thieving!

Pickpawcket update #5 (or is it 6) submitted to Apple. Highlights include a remarkable 83% less space taken on your iOS device and a bug fix for the poor iPad and iPod touch 4th gen players who were hit with a bug.

When the update hits Pickpawcket will be under 20 mb, there's no reason not to pick it up!

The mass shrinking of Pickpawcket has been approved.

However, Apple's encryption added a whopping 1.3mb after we submitted. So our 19mb is slightly over our target.

You'll see another update shortly!

We've reduced it just a bit more because it wasn't quite under the 20mb 3g limit. You should be able to download that today.

We're working on a bug in Pickpawcket if you have iOS4. Don't worry - your paintings will come back ASAP. Until then you can visit art.pickpawcket.com/[name-of-painting] to see the art. Eg: http://art.pickpawcket.com/the-birth-of-snowball

Paintings are fixed for everyone and we're back to 0 known bugs. Don't be afraid to tell us if the dogs planted more bugs in your game!

Pickpawcket is on sale for 0.99 to celebrate our announcement of our next game "All In" (thread)

Now that it's under 20mb, is less than a dollar, has beautiful artwork and engaging gameplay... there's no reason not to pick it up is there?

Bringing this over here - it was posted in the Free thread and wanted to make sure all our followers knew this!

EDIT: just checked again, and if you select the email option it does give you just the picture and also a link to a higher res version

so that's pretty neat.

We had to remove the full high-res versions from in game to reduce the size, those paintings by themselves were over 20 megs. I was sad that day. Like, depressed.

You've given me hope others will discover those buttons!

Edit: Still free today! Knowing the bosses here it'll be one of those 'Ok, time's up!' decisions so get it now before they change their minds!
