Today marks the 1 year anniversary of the launch of Smiles.

Yeah, it’s been that long already.

This weekend I’m giving Smiles Zen away for FREE. Also, I’ve discounting Smiles to $1.99 to reflect the price. I guess that’s how we celebrate 1 year on iPhone. 😉

In other news, Smiles 1.3 is on the way. I discovered a graphics performance bug on the newer iPhones and iPods (SGX), so that is now fixed. There were a few more little things too. Full release notes are as follows.

Release Notes:

– Improved SGX compatibility (iPhone 3GS, iPod touch 3rd generation)

– Improved graphical performance

– Improved touch sensitivity

– Lower idle battery usage

– Fixed “Total Games Played” statistic bug

– Removed music instructions (obsolete)

Some friends of mine helped me realize that I do some pretty crazy research that I should be sharing on my blog. Especially the stuff I needed to make some of the bugfixes above. We’ll see.

Either way, I should really start doing more here. Bad Mike! You’re doing cool stuff, but keeping it all to yourself. 🙂
