Now, you can selectively enable critical alerts for the reminders you can’t afford to miss.

Selective critical alerts is now available in Due 23.3:

Due 23.1 for macOS is now available. This update brings two changes.

First, the 12 Quick Access Times buttons are now mapped to the following keys:

1, 2, 3, 4
Q, W, E, R
A, S, D, F

and they adapt to your keyboard layout accordingly.

Second, there is an under-the-hood change which prepares Due Mac to handle an upcoming database change that enables selective critical alerts on iOS devices.

Due 23.2 for iOS is now available on the App Store. This should fix the unintended loss of access to features and prevent similar incidents in future:

I’m still working on an update for Mac.

Sorry for the inconvenience that this has caused all of you. 🙇🏻‍♂️

Apple's system status is reporting an outage for receipt validation. Still investigating.

There appears to be some bug that is causing receipt validation to fail starting today.

This is causing features previously unlocked to become locked. This is not intended behaviour.

While I investigate the underlying reason, I believe you can restore access if you do either:

1. Force quit then relaunch Due, choosing to refresh for a receipt, or
2. Head to Due > Settings > Upgrade Pass > Subscribe > Restore Purchases.

Sorry for the inconvenience caused.

I wasn’t expecting most of you to have your phone on silent most of the time. I’ve been working on selective critical alerts, and I think you’re going to find it really useful for the times when you can’t afford to miss a reminder!

@due iPhone is always muted via the physical switch and I rely on my Apple Watch making a sound if Due or any iMessage or notification comes in. I'll put my watch on silent or theatre mode if I'm in a meeting and need complete silence

@due I usually wear my Apple Watch and my iPhone is always on silent mode. In Japan, there are really few people chatting on trains and buses.

@due I have the sound on my iPhone always on, except when I’m doing something where I don’t want to be disturbed, like at a movie or during an important meeting. On the flip side, my Apple Watch is always on silent. Feeling the vibration on my wrist works well without having it make a sound to bring attention to it.

@due Sound is On, however, I simply disable the notification sounds for ALL apps except the 2 or 3 apps that I actually need/want to be notified of immediately 😊
Also, I've set a "silent.mp3" sound for the Phone ring tone (it is 100% silence.) Except for a few urgent contacts I've set a normal ringtone.

Do you usually leave the sound of your phone on or off? For 10 years, I kept my iPhone (and later my Apple Watch) mostly on silent mode. It all started during my first trip to Japan in 2012. It seemed like everyone there has their phone on silent. Talking on the phone while traveling on the shinkansen was also considered rude. I have kept this habit since. What about you?

Well, hello world!

Some of you have been asking about a Mastodon account to follow, so here it is.

If you have been following me on Twitter, you'll know that I'm pretty quiet over there.

I wish I'm better at sharing about Due and the things that I've been working on.

But when it comes to deciding between working on Due or writing about Due, you can imagine which I'd choose.

Hopefully I'll get better at this social media thing! 🤞🏻
