The UK has a fantastic history of innovation in computing, with many world-changing achievements stretching from many of the very earliest hardware and languages through to today’s projects like Raspberry Pi that aim to recapture something of the excitement and adventure of those early days.
The UK has also played a significant role in the development of games to enjoy on these computers and consoles, far outreaching our small size as a nation, and this is something I am personally very happy to have been a small part of over the past three decades.
We are proud to join the campaign to highlight the UK’s past and current achievements in this field by featuring the “Made in Creative UK” logo here. For more about the campaign, please visit the official website.
It was great to hear from Apple that there are now over 200,000 users of MailShot Pro and MailShot out there.
Welcome to all those who have joined us recently. We hope you are finding MailShot useful, and I’d like to personally thank the many of you who have taken the time to post your fantastic reviews on the App Store. We really appreciate it, and it helps us support the app.
As always if you have any problems at all you can find guidance, and help for most common issues, on our Support page or User Guide.
If you need assistance, we are always very happy to help. Please drop us a line using the “Support” button on the title page of MailShot, explaining any problem you are experiencing (this will also send us some diagnostic information that may help us assist you faster). We can resolve most issues fairly quickly.
We are happy to announce the release of “FAQ Markdown Email Composer“.
This special version of our FAQ app is optimised to support the increasingly-popular Markdown text markup notation, allowing formatted text, lists, code samples and embedded weblinks in your emails.
FAQ is a unique app that stores all the bits of text you use most often in your emails- opening phrases, answers to the questions you get asked most often, and closing phrases, along with any images and diagrams you may need. This allows you to create the perfect email in reply to a common question in just a few seconds- ideal for customer support, or handling questions from students or group members.
The new version interprets all Markdown formatting in your text, and includes the ability to easily preview your marked-up text.
FAQ will continue to be available in both versions- FAQ and the Markdown edition, so you can choose the one which suits you best.

Its great to see our ShotList and FAQ apps featuring in Taz Goldstein’s new book “Hand Held Hollywood’s Filmmaking with the iPad & iPhone”. The book covers all stages of the filmmaking process, from script through to shoot (and after), with more than enough information to decide which apps and equipment are for you, and lots of useful tips and advice.
You can download the book from Amazon or direct from the publishers, who have also been kind enough to send us a 35% discount code to share with you. (Visit peachpit.com/hhh and enter “HHH” at the checkout). It is also available as a printed version.
The book also covers our unique FAQ app (which creates custom emails from reusable pieces) saying of it…
“FAQ was designed to be as productive as the people who use it, and for that reason it remains one of my favorite iOS utilities”
It was great to hear from Apple today that over 150,000 people are now enjoying the unique benefits of our MailShot apps.
I hope everything is going well for you all, and thanks for all your fantastic comments on the App Store, they really make a difference.
If you have any problems, please see our Support page or User Guide or get in touch using the “Support” button on the title page of the app. We are always very happy to help.
We have just released an update for “FAQ“, our unique app that creates complete custom emails or text documents from your predefined text, in just a few clicks.
The new update adds iPhone 5 and iOS6 support, and the ability to duplicate entire topics, text and images. We have also retitled the app to “FAQ – Email Composer”- to give a clearer impression of what it does.
FAQ is great for customer support (and sees daily use here, answering user questions about our popular “MailShot” and “Shotlist” apps.) It is also fantastic for anything you may need to repeat often in email: such as instructions on how to reach your premises, boilerplate legal disclaimers, location details for grounds your team visits frequently, requests for donations, etc. It can really reduce the amount you need to use your device’s keyboard.
If you find it useful, as always, please spread the word. A review on the App Store is always much appreciated, especially after an update.
Version 4.0 of Shotlist is now released on the App Store.
This major new update adds a number of great features to Shotlist:

- Shot details and notes for each shot in a scene.
- Email .pdf updates of stripboard and details pages.
- Import and export projects in a popular spreadsheet format.
- Rearrange shot ordering with drag and drop.

It also fixes a problem in the previous version when updating a project to Dropbox, and has various other optimisations to speed up data entry and navigation.
The Support page and User Guide are both being updated to reflect the new features.
If you encounter any problems please let us know by tapping the “Support” button in Shotlist, or using our support email address (shotlist at solubleapps.com) and I’ll look at it right away for you.
A lot has gone into this update and I hope you find it useful. If you do, a review on the App Store is always very much appreciated. Thanks.
