HipHopDrop & CrackBeats Updated To v4.0

JakedUpWe’ll keep this short and sweet — the release speaks for itself! HipHopDrop and CrackBeats have been updated on Google Play, Amazon Appstore, and BlackBerry World to version 4.0. This release is a major overhaul, and complete re-write of both apps from the ground-up, with a strong focus on the Google Holo user interface design principles introduced in Android 4.0. Many areas of the app framework have been massively tweaked and re-designed, including:

  • ENHANCEMENT: Complete re-write of app.
  • VISUAL: All new icons/graphics.
  • VISUAL: Holo-inspired user interface.
  • OTHER: Greatly improved usability.
  • NEW: Sliding left menu w/ smart filters.
  • NEW: Intuitive action menu bar.
  • NEW: Built-in streaming media player.
  • NEW: Songs are downloaded as MP3’s.
  • NEW: Built-in internal web browser.
  • VISUAL: Re-designed homescreen widget.
  • VISUAL: New tablet/Google TV interface.
  • ENHANCEMENT: Major speed enhancements.
  • ENHANCEMENT: Lower power consumption.
  • OTHER: Tons of bug fixes/clean-up.

WARNING! Since this update is a complete re-write, it is essentially an entirely different app. Therefore, you will lose all of your starred tracks, pinned tracks, and app settings upon update. You will essentially be starting off with a clean, fresh install. Apologies for this — but we had to do this to minimize issues that may have occurred during the update process. Trust us, it’s totally worth it! However, if you accidentally upgraded and wish to downgrade to a previous version, please e-mail us at Support@JakedUp.com.

On the other hand, if you are stoked about the new update and are ready to explore all the new features, visit your local app market and grab the update immediately!

Help Us Out!

JakedUpWe here at JakedUp would like to take a second to thank all of our 16,000+ HipHopDrop and CrackBeats users (!!!) for your continued support of our app development efforts. Obviously, our apps wouldn’t really matter much if nobody was buying and using them, so props to every single one of you.

So… in order to help us continue to provide top-notch service, we only ask one additional thing of you… take 30 seconds out of your busy day and RATE US! It’s hard to believe we have tens-of-thousands of users, but less than 30 ratings in all of the app markets combined! Your honest app rating will help us get better exposure in these super-crowded app markets.

Thanks again for your help!

JakedUp Apps Now In More Markets

JakedUpLast week we mentioned that we would release HipHopDrop and CrackBeats to both the Amazon AppStore and the BlackBerry AppWorld. Well, that day is finally upon us… Amazon and RIM have approved our releases and they are now live in both markets! These new markets will open the door for JakedUp apps to be used on many more devices, such as the Kindle Fire and the BlackBerry PlayBook, and of course, any other Android device that doesn’t ship with Google Play. We would like to note that we are still oferring the 50% off promo for the AD-FREE/DONATE versions on Google Play thru 8/22, and are extending that promo for the AD-FREE/DONATE versions found in the Amazon AppStore thru 8/26. And… we are also offering the AD-SUPPORTED versions of both apps for FREE on the BlackBerry AppWorld.

Again, the latest versions of HipHopDrop and CrackBeats are our best releases yet, with many usability and visual enhancements, increased offline tracklist storage limits, and improved back-end server performance when syncing, streaming, and downloading. If you already own the apps, but haven’t updated, please update immediately! — Due to the new server changes, all previous versions of the apps will stop working after 8/22. And if you have bought one app and not the other, but were planning on it, now is the perfect time to take the plunge — Since our announcement last week, we have seen a *MAJOR* rise in new users… over 3,500+ downloads in less than 10 days!

Updates, Updates, And More Updates

JakedUpHipHopDrop and CrackBeats have been updated on both Google Play and BlackBerry AppWorld to versions 3.4 and 2.4 respectively. This release includes many usability and visual enhancements, bringing both apps closer to the new Holo user interface design guidelines introduced in Android 4.0. Additionally, we have also increased the offline tracklist storage limit, and updated our back-end server for increased speed and performance when downloading and syncing. Due to this server change, all previous versions of the apps will stop working after 2 weeks. Please update immediately if you haven’t already done so!

To us, this release is our biggest milestone yet, and lays the groundwork for an even bigger redesign that we are in the process of developing. On top of that, we are also proud to announce that to this date, both HipHopDrop and CrackBeats have a combined total of 10,500+ active users, and all JakedUp apps have accumulated over 26,500+ downloads. Much love to everyone who have supported us, and continue to support us all the way to the top!

Lastly… more milestones! — First, we are excited to announce that CrackBeats will also be offered on BlackBerry AppWorld alongside sister-app HipHopDrop… Over that past months, HipHopDrop has gained much momentum in that market, and we hope that CrackBeats will follow in it’s success. And finally, we are even more thrilled to announce that both apps will also be offered in the Amazon AppStore so that non-“Google Experience” devices such as the Kindle Fire can also enjoy everything that these apps have to offer.
