It's (busy) business as usual at Play Buddy in this quarter's newsletter.
As of June 29, 2018 here's what's new and happening at Play Buddy:
It seems like it was yesterday that our mass update and new website were rolled out, and yet now here we are months later in full blown summer! May you and yours enjoy all the season has to offer and to our fellow United States patrons, have a fun, safe, happy IndependenceDay.
I love when y'all share suggestions that I can implement to improve your PB experience. A while back I received an email inquiring about where all the past newsletters could be read. I realized - aside from searching one's own inbox - we had no such option. So thank you, sir, for bringing this to my attention, as I'm pleased to announce that we now have a Play Buddy Newsletter Archive. This means anyone at any time can locate and read any newsletter. How nifty!
We have been all sorts of busy, as you've probably noticed. Our fellow Pogo players have probably been just as busy, trying to keep up with all the new games, newly converted games, all the associated new badges, AND all the regular weekly challenges. Phew, I'm winded just typing all of that! On that note, a thank you...
Thank you to all of our patient customers. There are times when - in addition to regular bug fixes and improvements or badge challenge modifications - we are faced with a lot of urgent tasks all at once (i.e. Pogo's release of Stack'em, Postcards from Britain, AND A Way with Words in a 3-day period). It's important to us that you know we are equally as eager to provide the associated Buddies, as you are to receive them! Even so, sometimes programming a Buddy is not as fast as any of us would like. Depending on the complexities, it might take him a day, a week or even two, but he will always "get 'er done". We really appreciate your understanding and are so grateful for your continued patience!
And that's a wrap of the general news.
Let us welcome Claire Hart 2, Aquarium, Postcard, and (should be released today) Words Buddy to the PB family. HTML5 game re-makes (Stack'em & Crossword Cove) continued and associated Buddies released.
As you may have heard, Pogo announced that the new Java 10 release may render their Java games inoperable. They have begun converting Java games to HTML5; we will continue to update associated Buddies accordingly.

(Bug fixes, improvements, and customer requests)
And, as always, we love to hear your feedback. Ta-ta until next quarter!
