The last couple of weeks has seen a strange, but very welcome spike in sales of our iPad apps YBoard and Fatigue Survey. We’re up 600% on weekly sales over the past weeks with most downloads coming from the UK and Australia. We’ve no idea how or why this has occurred but its obviously very pleasing. The additional sales have led to a couple of new reviews and even a support call – we received our very first support request for YBoard from a user in Australia, who with some advice persevered and gave us a great review.
Here are the two latest reviews:
Great little app *****
by G Mouse – Version 2.0.2 – Apr 3, 2013
This is a fantastic little app – great for creating org charts, breakdown structures – anything that needs a lot of fluidity when creating.
Nice simple app *****

This nicely emulates the brainstorming process with Post-it notes. It took me a while to get the swipes working. A slow peel up movement to remove a note (from just below the note and stopping on it) – and the swipe to go to the home page needs to be be on a clear area without any Post-it on it (if you go over a Post-it it does not work) Developer responded really quickly to my enquiry and sorted these points out for me. Now I am using it very effectively and like it.
The increased sales of Fatigue Survey would indicate that the app is being used by a couple of operators in the UK and Australia. If you are a user of Fatigue Survey please get in touch and let us know what features you would like to see next and how we can make the app more useful for your operation.
Please get in touch if you would like to find out more about our iOS development capability.
At the recent Airline & Aerospace MRO & Operations IT Conference in Miami I showcased a new app by Christoph Niemann called Petting Zoo. I don’t think I made a very good job of pointing out the impact the Touch Screen Generation was going to have on the aviation industry in 15 years, but I was interested to see a write up by Christoph Niemann in the New Yorker on the story of his app.
In his article there is a brilliant line which sums up perfectly some of what I have been trying to express for the past 3 years on simplicity.
Simplicity is not about making something without ornament, but rather about making something very complex, then slicing elements away, until you reveal the very essence.
Global Tech Group, headed up by CEO Richard Vorias, is a business and technology services organization, specializing in bringing leading edge technology products and services to the Australasian and Asian markets. With a strong focus in both the aviation and information technology sectors, Global Tech Group is perfectly placed to help Conduce bring the proven eTechLog and EFB solution to the Australasian aviation sector.
Steve Russell, CEO of Conduce Group, commented. “At a personal level, we have worked with Richard for many years and recognize the knowledge and expertise that Global Tech Group have within the Aviation sector and the Australasian market. The Conduce eTechlog/EFB solution is an exciting new product that Global Tech is very familiar with and they are the perfect partner to work with to bring this technology to market in Australasia”
Richard Vorias, CEO of Global Tech Group added. “The Conduce eTechLog/EFB Solution is an ideal addition to our portfolio of technology products. The solution is already UK CAA approved and has many years of established ROI to one of the larger Airlines in the UK. We have proactively approached CASA to obtain the necessary regulatory input and hence smooth the introduction of this service into the Australian Airline sector.
Here are the slides from my presentation on etechlogs from the Aircraft Commerce Airline & Aerospace MRO & Operations IT Conference on 20th March 2013.
I gave a case study on the pros and cons of implementing and using an electronic techlog which some people may call and electronic logbook or journey log.

Its conference season again and Conduce Software’s Paul Saunders will be kicking off another busy presenting year with two talks at Aircraft Commerce’s Airline & Aerospace MRO & Operations IT Conference in Miami next week. This will be the third time that Paul will have presented at the Americas leg of Aircraft Commerce’s highly successful Aviation IT exhibitions.
On Tuesday the 19th March on Day One of the conference Paul will be presenting the follow up to last year’s very popular Tablet Strategy Bootcamp workshop session whilst Day Two sees the airing of a brand new Electronic Techlog case study presentation.
As well as presenting and meeting with our North American clients our team will also be demonstrating our electronic techlog and EFB solution and a preview of our software on the brand new Panasonic Windows 8 ToughPad.
For the launch of Windows 8 Microsoft Portugal put out this advert to draw attention to the simplicity and intuitiveness of the new operating system.
I like the video as it highlights two factors that I have been advocating for quite some time namely the consumerization of IT and the technology native.
[Props to Jamie Burgess from Microsoft for drawing my attention to it]
