Pacific 3.1 Update News

Hey there!

We're currently working on Pacific 3.1; an update which includes new features like a theming option where you can choose your favorite colors. Furthermore, we will add new Dashboard items, for example a "County" item. 

That's it for now; if you want to stay up-to-date follow us Twitter @cyanicspace!

Pacific turns 3 - a short visual history

Pacific, formerly known as SkyWidgets, turns three! πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰ 

You heard right, Pacific is three years old. Since the introduction of iOS 7 which empowered the Notification Center with widgets we knew we wanted to build an app which takes advantage of the new technology. 

First of all, we started with an application which just provided widgets and the settings for them inside the app. A few months later we introduced the first Dashboard view.

About one year later a major update was released. With 2.0 we took the in-app experience to the next level and we changed the name of the app from SkyWidgets to Pacific. 2.0 brought a completely new Dashboard which was configurable and featured more information items about the location.

With version 2.0 we also introduced Routes and Quick Dial - a fast way to open a route or start a call directly from the widget. Additionally, we introduced Pacific Pro in this version, which enables more functionality and customization options.

After one and a half year we rewrote Pacific entirely in Swift, gave the Dashboard a new look, overhauled the complete design and user interface. And that's where Pacific 3.0 comes up. The new design and the user interaction abilities are better than ever before. And here it is, the new Dashboard:

Finally, we want to thank everyone who supported us in the past years! You are amazing and we hope you like Pacific 3.0 as much as we do.

Some facts about Pacific:

  • we shipped over 38 updates since introduction (that's one update in a month!)
  • Pacific has about 45k downloads
  • Our most successful application

Thank you! And stay tuned for new updates & features!

Pacific 3.0 is now available

Almost 3 years ago Pacific (formerly SkyWidgets) was launched. Since then we shipped 38 updates which introduced several new features. Especially Pacific 2.0 included more customization options and more Dashboard items.

With Pacific 3.0 we want to take the experience to the next level. A new designed Dashboard view with columns gives a good and clear overview about your location. The setup process has been redone as well. Simply hold an item and drag it to a new position on the grid. It's that easy! πŸ˜Š

We also redesigned the Pacific website - there you can find all details about Pacific 3.0 (about Dashboard items, widgets and so on).

Lastly, we hope you will like Pacific 3.0 and would be very happy about a review at the App Store! πŸ˜Š

This wouldn't be possible with your support!

Thank you! β€οΈ

Quick update on SkyPilot 2

SkyPilot 2 was released in early 2017 and hasn’t gained as much users as I thought. That’s why I am stopping the active development on the application. As I no longer support SkyPilot 2, the in-app purchase is now available for free.

What does this mean for you?

Well, you will still be able to use and download SkyPilot 2. Although, I will not ship updates with major new features anymore.

Thank you for using and supporting SkyPilot 2!
