Work Log: Prepping for Launch

The Sofa 3.0 beta is going well and the launch date is inching closer. In this video, I give a peek into what goes into prepping for the launch of a major app update.

I cover the press kit, website updates, creating assets for the App Store, and writing support documentation.

Excited that the launch is getting closer!

Will we lose access to any of our sticky notes or any other data once 3.0 launches? Or if I go from non-premium to Super Sofa after launch, will it remove any progress I’ve made towards logging stuff in the app? I saved a backup but I am unsure how this stuff works. Thanks.

Great question! I’m going to be putting these answers in the support guide, but I’ll share them here for you now. Let me know if anything needs to be clarified.
