    also like to thank Robbie who joined us in the last year and has already created over 100 items which have become firm favourites with many players it s great to have a player become a staff member and we re sure this is a trend that will continue in the years to come Secondly Alan and Simon deserve a round of applause and a stiff drink for all the work that they do much of it behind the scenes When we decided to start this app in September 2011 I don t think any of us knew how quickly it would grow As well as juggling fulltime jobs with their WallaBee tasks both of them have got married and Alan even found the time to create a wee bairn Over the past couple of months they ve been particularly hands on whilst I ve been on holiday jury duty and working on various updates WallaBee wouldn t have got to the 1 0 stage without them so my continuing thanks to both of them Finally the biggest thanks goes to you for continuing to play and get excited about the work we re doing There have been a lot of bumps in the road as we ve attempted to meet demand but I hope that you get as much enjoyment out of WallaBee as we get in creating it Now some of you may be wondering why the low key birthday where is the one day set The truth is it that we ve been working hard on getting through artwork that is required and with me being away on jury duty for 5 weeks it hasn t left much time for a big celebration We ve got a lot of things we re working on this year including A completely re written server architecture allowing us to serve hundreds of thousands of players rather than thousands WallaBee v2 which has been built from scratch to be fast beautiful and ruthless A redesigned system for commissioning player uniques we ve learned from our past mistakes and are working on a way to get uniques done within days rather than months Something brand new Dr Miu has been a bit too quiet don t you think Trust us once that is all done we ll be celebrating in style Until then thank you for continuing to be the most important part of WallaBee and we look forward to making you laugh cry and pull your hair out for another year Ben Dodson Founder WallaBee ben wallab ee Connection Issues Resolved Feb 2nd Posted on 2nd February 2015 Hey Everyone A brief update to apologise for the frustrating downtime today Our SSL certificate which ensures that traffic from your phone to our servers is encrypted expired today and so the app would refuse to connect to our servers Due to this we were unable to activate our maintenance mode procedure as that still requires a connection to our servers We usually

    may know Apple made some pricing tweaks last week which saw app prices and in app purchases like our honeycomb packs and locks change in price within Europe and Canada Due to these changes some of our honeycomb packs no longer made sense in some countries as buying a 5000hc pack would cost more than buying the 2500hc pack twice We realised we haven t made any tweaks to our line up in a while so I m very happy to announce that today we have repriced our honeycomb pack lineup making them cheaper whilst giving you more Here are our new honeycomb packs 1000hc 0 99 0 79 Our base package remains at the lowest tier working out at 10hc per 0 01 or 12hc per 0 01 2400hc 1 99 1 49 Our next package works out slightly better at 12hc per 0 01 or 16hc per 0 01 6000hc 3 99 2 99 Replacing our 5000hc package for the same price this works out at 15hc per 0 01 or 20hc per 0 01 11000hc 5 99 4 49 This new package works out at 18hc per 0 01 or 25hc per 0 01 18000hc 7 99 5 99 Replacing our 15000hc package for the same price this works out at 23hc per 0 01 or 30hc per 0 01 30000hc 9 99 7 99 Our most popular 25000hc package is replaced by this one with 5000hc extra honeycombs and a 2 buck price drop Now works out at 30hc per 0 01 or 38hc per 0 01 We think these prices work a lot better across all countries and maintain a steady improvement as you purchase more In addition our top package which is purchased 9 times out of 10 not only gets more honeycombs but also a 17 price drop As well as updating our honeycomb pricing we also took another look at our pouch upgrade Previously you could upgrade to 60 spaces for 2 99 today we ve reduced that price by a third and are offering the double pouch upgrade for just 1 99 or 1 49 in the UK Finally to give something to everybody we have also increased the number of honeycombs you ll find whilst foraging Some of you already noticed this on the forums but we re happy to make it official that the number of honeycombs you ll find on average has risen by over 75 We ve tried to anticipate any questions you may have below When do these changes go live All of these prices are live right now and will remain at these prices for the foreseeable future Have you changed lock prices We haven t changed the prices of locks as they remain on the lowest tier that Apple allow which is 0 99 in the US 0 79 in the UK If you are in Europe or Canada you may notice that the price of these has increased slightly as Apple has changed

    on iOS 8 Due to the complexity of programming a solution that works before iOS 7 we made the decision that this update will only be available on iOS 7 and above If you are one of the very small minority of players still running iOS 6 then you won t see this update in the App Store and the networking fixes it introduces should not apply to you we stopped updates for iOS 5 back with v1 2 This is the last update we are doing until v2 is released which definitely won t support iOS 6 those players on iOS 5 6 can currently still play WallaBee but that will not be the case when v2 is released This can be a confusing issue so if you have any questions please email me directly So we ve been without items for nearly a month and a half would you like some new ones If you do then be sure to watch the stores from 01 30 UTC on 1st November 2014 Don t worry we aren t going to release 45 days worth of items we aren t that cruel are we If you don t have iOS 8 1 yet we d strongly advise you to perform that update today Our honeycomb and lock sale and the discount and increased availability of mixers will all end at 01 30 UTC on 1st November as well As ever thank you for playing WallaBee and for your patience during what has been a very difficult time It s given us some time to focus on some new things and we re going to be making some announcements before the year is out We always appreciate a review on iTunes should you enjoy the app if you run into any
