We are very grateful about all the feedback and handwriting samples you've sent to us since the launch of our handwriting calculator in Beta Labs.
We have been reading your emails and comments thoroughly and discussing them in our team. It is really difficult to answer each of you directly. So we decide to give some common answers to you through this post.
The holidays are over and Beta Labs staff is back in the office.
As many of you noticed already in December, we are renewing the Beta Labs website. We will try to replace the old Beta Labs website with the new during this month and to do that, we would appreciate your contribution. If you haven't done that already, please, check out the new Beta Labs beta and share your thoughts on the forum. Feedback sent during this week will be most valuable.
Time to spend some quality time with loved ones. Merry Christmas and happy New Year - see you again in 2009!
- Tommi and Ilkka
As an early Christmas present, we are proud to give you a sneak peek to the renewed Beta Labs website! This is a splendid opportunity for you to really affect how the service will look and work in the future. The site is currently in early beta, so again, be prepared for some rough edges. But we were just SO eager to get it out there before Christmas! It's been a long and rocky road, but we're finally getting there!
