EZ Tripper v3.0 Released in App Store

EZ Tripper App Icon

Just want to let you all know that EZ Tripper Auto Mileage Tracker v3.0 has been approved and available in the App Store: you can download EZ Tripper v3.0 for FREE now and use it on your iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad (in iPhone simulator mode).

We have updated the app to make it work better with iOS 7, while retaining most of the look & feel of v2.0. There are also bug fixes and tweaks based on your feedback and suggestions. Most importantly, we added 20 FAQ’s so you can find answers to common questions without leaving the app.

With the new Notifications tab in EZ Tripper v3.0, you can hear from us about updates and other news without leaving the app. You can continue to send us feedback without leaving the app with the new Feedback Form. Best of all, we can now respond to your questions (if you provide your email address on the feedback form) as well. Our response to your questions will show up in Notifications tab, along with general updates or news announcements.

Due to time allocated to support iOS 7, we weren’t able to add other major features in this release. However, please continue to support us and let us know what you think (through in-app feedback and App Store reviews/comments).

Note: Your existing trips data should remain after the app update, but it’s a good idea to export all your trips and locations as a backup before updating the app, just in case.

Also, some users reported losing trip data while using v2.0 of the app. We believe this was a memory access problem that should be fixed in v3.0. Please continue to report any problems you experience so we can resolve them as quickly as we can.

PhotoPager v1.0 for iPad Available in App Store!

PhotoPager v1.0

We just published our first photo app, PhotoPager v1.0 for iPad, available for download now from the App Store.

We built PhotoPager for busy people like us, who enjoy custom photo creations but don’t want to spend countless hours on each project. It is designed for quick and easy scrapbooking, when you want to build attractive photo pages in minutes, not hours. The user interface is simple, attractive, fun and easy to use.


  • Create collages, photo books and slideshows in minutes!
  • Select from dozens of pre-designed themes and layouts for each page
  • Most layouts and themes are FREE (some layout and theme packs are available for in-app purchase)
  • Import your pictures from Facebook or Saved Photos on your iPad
  • Share & print your creations via Email, Facebook, Twitter, and Printzel
  • Works on the iPad running iOS 6.1+ or iOS 7.

For more details, check the App Store listing for PhotoPager v1.0 or see iPad screenshots.

Thanks to all beta testers and others have given us useful feedback and suggestions for the app – their names are listed in the “About” section under Settings. We appreciate your feedback and will look for ways to incorporate it in future updates and releases.

Please check it out and let us know what you think!

EZ Tripper – Lost All Trips?

EZ Tripper App Icon

We have recently heard from EZ Tripper users that they lost all trips when launching the app and asked us how to get them back. We are very surprised to hear about this issue and are currently investigating the cause.

We’re not sure if this problem coincides with updating to iOS 7 on these users’ devices. Please help us resolve this by commenting on this post with more details if you have encountered this problem. We’d like to know what actions were taken on the device prior to having this problem and generally what changed since EZ Tripper was working last time.

For current users of EZ Tripper: please be advised to export your trips frequently as a backup.

We’re currently working on an update for iOS 7 for EZ Tripper, so hopefully we’ll resolve this problem soon with the app update.

Thank you for your support and we apologize if you have experienced this issue. We’ll try our best to find a way to recover any lost data.
