After numerous delays, Pressy is finally starting to ship! Additionally, the app has now arrived to Google Play, though you’ll need an activation code to use it.
After a ‘misunderstanding’ regarding whether the Pressy app will or won’t be on Google Play, Pressy’s team has managed to further upset most of its original backers.
On popular crowd-funding platforms today are a couple of interesting smartphone add-on accessories. On Kickstarter, we have Pressy, which plugs into the phone’s 3.5mm audio jack and acts as an extra button. On Indiegogo, there’s Dimple, which is an adhesive strip that contains four buttons that work in conjunction with NFC. The key functionality in these accessories is the easy access to functions through button-press shortcuts. For instance, a series or combination of button presses could turn on your torch or launch the SMS app, and so forth. These accessories are taking quite some time to produce and get to market, however….
Once again Pressy has missed another deadline, after weeks of silence they’ve finally explained why.
After a bit of delay, Pressy’s creators have finally announced the add-on button will start shipping April 28th. The Pressy will also include a redesigned holster.
Like the idea of the add-on button acccessory ‘Pressy’, but no so impressed by its asking price? Xiaomi is now preparing its own much cheaper alternative.
Physical buttons? Who wants more of those on their smartphone? Apparently over 22,000 backers, that’s who. Pressy has now exceeded its latest stretch goal, passing the $500k mark with 28 days remaining. Keep reading for more details!
