    Great demo and look at comments.



  • @diegofiorillo-uk Interesting that it has shipped but we still can't download the app



  • @markthornhill5 The app is available. I have it loaded on my android. I can't remember how long it's been available, week? Two? Just check out Google play. It's there. I placed my order back in October within the first 100. I am also still waiting.



  • @bwhanby69 The Android version is available, but the iOS version is not out yet.



  • @loudunham This could be the main reason for the hold up. Dealing with App submission to Apple is a pain in the ass and they have very strict guidelines for apps that handle user info etc. They work on their schedule, so even if you bust your ass to make their required changes, there is no rush for them to approve.

    yup this is the worst part about the Crapple ecosystem - great OS's but major control freaks, I have seen them hold up many a planned release when it comes to mobile apps



  • google play says "early access program is currently full" there was 500 downloads. I am on early order waiting for delivery.



  • we've been told that spark early bird orders will ship in feb. can't you tell us more specifically that orders made before x date will ship before x date and so on...so we can tell when we can expect arrival? if you are shipping first in first out, I cant see why you cant be more specific? dont hedge...just be totally transparent and you will save yourselves a great deal of backlash and negative comments.



  • @corvusgrp Hi Corvus, I tend to agree, I have pre-ordered a Spark amp the other day where the order states I will get it in March, (edit: I notice the pre-order page now says March/April - so I guess I will get it by the end of April).

    I think for people like us who mention we are buying an amp should update this thread when we actually receive the amp... just so people get an idea that they do come - and that with so many thousands of amps to build obviously its going to take some time.

    But it would be really good for Positive Grid to feedback to us some general info on when orders have been filled. (like - Today we sent 100 amps to invoice numbers etc...etc...) Just as a statement of good will...

    Social media can make or break a company and so far we are making them a global phenomenon in the digital amp realm.... I might add that I ordered an amp after seeing the Trogley Guitars YouTube review of the Spark amp, and they look absolutely amazing - I love the fact that they have so many options, to the point I sold all my guitar pedals to be able to afford one...

    Nice work Positive Grid! YOU GUYS ROCK!!!!

    Personally I cant wait to get my hands on one of these and start posting my own YouTube reviews!
