The team behind RF.com joked over sandwiches yesterday that the company’s entire marketing budget had been spent on parking near San Francisco’s Moscone Convention center, where the Macworld Conference and Expo was held earlier this month.
And, though parking in downtown San Francisco is outrageously expensive, it was worth it. We showed off RingFree to a few people. One of those, Ben Wilson of cNet’s iPhoneAtlas blog, wrote about us and a few other bloggers followed.
Now several hundred of you are using RingFree — stress-testing it, if you will — and we’re learning a lot from your usage patterns, feedback and our fattening log files.
Yesterday was the first time we were able to carve out a few moments to get together face-to-face since Ben’s RingFree “discovery”. We celebrated our initial success for a few minutes. Then we got right back to work.
Yes, too much to do now. We still have to fix the registration process (works fine with WiFi, less fine with Edge and AT&T’s aggressive data caches); and there are many features — and some big changes — to come.
We welcome your comments on this blog, but please, take questions, support requests and feature suggestions to the forum where they are better suited. But do come back to this blog often as this is where we’ll do our best to keep you apprised of the goings-on, the what’s-ups and the why’s-thats.
