You guys are taking the piss. This can’t be real…
The app was planned for 2015- the android one 2014 even… It’s taken you 5 years longer. World Wars last shorter than this.
First you updated the community it’d be 2016, then 2017- then you said “we were working on it but it’s taking longer” and now that we finally got a concrete (as far as such a short list can be called concrete) roadmap, you guys still missed it. We are 6 years overdue and there still isn’t even an alpha version.
Not even that but seriously? Using windows tech issues as an excuse? I mean I know I’ve just responded in the other topic that I believe you, but seeing this I really start to doubt it.
Here’s the thing: if you were telling the truth, you’d have released an alpha/beta for everyone but Windows so that we know what’s happening and can give you guys feedback with the Windows release coming later.
Or- you’d have shared screenshots.
We know nothing about this app after 6 years of development. We don’t know what features it has, we don’t even know what it looks like. Not even concept designs!
In the meanwhile I read things like “Yeah we plan adding Youtube Music support. Yeah we plan cloud support. It will all be in the new app” even though you can’t even get a Windows app to work.
If this doesn’t scream vaporware I don’t know what does. Guys, if you depend on this new app- please stop supporting these phonies until they can proof they ARE actually working on this. I don’t like to do this, but what’s the point in supporting baseless promises? I mean all VOX has to do is make a blog post and update us on the progress and share screenshots. If you ARE working on the app, it should be the easiest demand to fulfill!
Also, as a fellow app developer who has worked with a lot of different cross platform frameworks- there’s no way, even for a small company, that it’d take this long.
And lastly: I have respect for you guys, VOX. Don’t get me wrong. I don’t write this angry comment because I hate you guys. The opposite actually- I love that you provide us with lossless music uploads- still, after all these years! I know being a small company with limited resources is tough. Being a successful music locker service is even harder- no big money can be made from this as other companies have proved. Your current apps work and were great back in 2013, but they really start to show their age.
But I am writing this to hopefully wake you guys up. You need to be more transparent to your loyal fans because keeping silent is just going to hurt and destroy you in the long run.
