Say Hello to Goalie

by Brian Gilham, Guest Blogger

I am pleased to introduce Goalie, a native HockeyApp client for the iPhone. My team and I think it’s the best way to manage your HockeyApp account on the go, and I’m excited to show it to you.

From large client apps, to small personal projects, I use HockeyApp every day. But work doesn’t stop when I walk away from my laptop. With Goalie, I can check crash reports on the bus. When I’m waiting in line at the grocery store, I’m also responding to feedback from my beta testers. Later I might invite someone I met at an iOS meetup to my app, while standing next to them. I love it, and I hope you will too.

Some of the feature include:

  • View, manage, and install every app in your HockeyApp account. Quickly create new apps for iOS, Mac OS, Android, or Windows Phone. Quickly tap through to view Versions, Crashes, Feedback, and Team members.

  • Check out statistics for every version of an app including installs, downloads, crashes, and usage time.

  • Quickly triage crash reports, including the ability to filter by resolved/unresolved. Includes details like crash reason, method, class, file, line, and number of crashes. Easily change a crash groups’s status or open the associated ticket in your bug tracker.

  • Read and reply to feedback from your users. Create new discussions. Invite new developers, members, or testers. View, contact, or remove any member of your team.

Testers can access all of their apps for free, while management features require a paid upgrade. We think it’s worth the money. We love what we do, and we’re committed to building the best HockeyApp client available.

We’re always looking for more feedback. Visit us at goalie-app.com and give us a shout any time. You can find us at @hellogoalie on Twitter and ADN, or send us an email at hello@goalie-app.com.
