Thought I'd list some things that are and will be happening in the near future. As you know, we're updating the client and soon sending it to Apple. We'd love to add millions of features to the next one, but that would take a long time to get to you, so we'll have to cut it some place and leave the rest for next versions. I'm sure you want to get updates more often than twice a year :)

Things that are already in place:

  • stuff in the store
  • feed messages can be set to only be shown to teammates (start with @)
  • notification settings through @notif command

Things that are in client version 0.9.10:

(In random order, all I can remember)

  • own structures have an indicator so they are easier to spot in the world
  • chat views scroll smoother and are otherwise better to use
  • bigger field of view
  • drones move smoother
  • iOS6: gray selection shown in structure list
  • iOS6: no more cyan tab bars, they're black as they should be
  • when sorting portals by player, own portals are shown first
  • build/structures list shows stuff sorted by type, then by name
  • night view
  • no expire time shown for done missions
  • music isn't stopped when starting the game
  • possibility to draw different drone models for PPA drones
  • chat list a bit tighter spaced
  • messages (X dmg etc) higher up, as they should be
  • structure list allows jumping to portals
  • chat lists won't double on relogin after disconnect
  • forum is shown inside game
  • new login screen
  • accounts can be created inside the game itself
  • attack notifications are logged in local chat backlog
  • local chat/attack notifications have a color pulse so they are more visible
  • portal list is faster to show and dismiss
  • radar has a sound effect
  • don't let player in without location services on
  • better minimap
  • sounds that change position and loudness based on origin (headphones...)
  • timeout for connecting to server when network connection is bad
  • some more places for sound effects

Things that are coming in the next client:

  • jumping to portals from world view
  • action texts (X started action...)
  • viewing other players' info
  • area map
  • notification settings
  • local chat timestamps
  • clearer shield number in target HUD

Things that are coming at some point to the client, not yet done:

  • info layer on the world view
  • better campaign screen
  • better score sheet
  • more stuff in the store
  • user can reset their own stats
  • feed messages can be set to only be shown to friends
  • better score sheet
  • better campaign sheet
  • friend lists
  • blocking people in chat
  • reporting people for admins
  • better radar
  • indicator of private messages on startup
  • indicator of announcements on startup
  • better feeds
  • better PMs
  • better sound effects

In addition to these, there is of course lots of stuff happening in the server side and I'll list those too at some point. I'll also update these lists.

Do keep your suggestions coming! I might not be able to read them all the time, but everything will be read and considered and I'll comment where I can.
