Well folks i'm happy to report that Apple and I have finally worked through the approval process to get the Cigar Geeks iPhone/iPad app out in the iTunes store!   :dancing:

It's been a long process and took some going back and forth but we are there.  Here's the iTunes link:
http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/cigar-geeks-application/id476494257?ls=1&mt=8

I have decided to set the price at $3.99.  This app will synchronize your humidor items and the Cigar database with your iPhone, so it puts a pretty good strain on the web site server.  As more users purchase the app the procedes from the app will need to go to funding more server resources.

Here's the blurb from the iTunes store:
The Cigar Geeks application is for the cigar enthusiast who is interested in furthering their cigar hobby. It comes pre-loaded with a searchable database of over 31,000 cigars and over 16,000 cigar reviews. The app can download the latest Cigars and Reviews from the Cigar Geeks web site as they are updated.

You can also track multiple humidors and inventories along with tasting notes, quantities, ages, and prices. The app will synchronize your virtual humidors with the Cigar Geeks web site as well. You can maintain your humidors in either the app or web site and synchronize the two.

If you are interested in having a quick and easy to use reference to help with future cigar purchases or want to be able to track your purchases in your various humidors then you will find this a very useful tool.

If you desire to give back to the community you can also submit your own cigar reviews through the app and they will appear on the web site under your account.

In order to submit reviews or track your humidors online a free Cigar Geeks web site login is required.

Some screenshots:
    

   

Cheers!
-Paul

Oh.  Before folks ask - Yes, I plan to look into an Android app as well.  No promises on timelines though.  :biggrin:

Congratulations.  Nice Job.  Seems like a deal for $3.99.  Makes me wish I had an iPad.
I'm right 98% of the time.  Who cares about the other 3%?

I don't have that kind of technology but it sounds like it might be a nice thing to play with.

Congrats Paul on accomplishing this huge task. :bigthumbs:

I have an iPhone... yeah me!  :dancing:



Edit:
The App has been downloaded.  :biggrin:
The sync for the humi was easy. Everything is functioning very well, and it's easy to navigate. Job well done Paul.
