 Additional Value for you as a beta tester

For every geek/gekette who is testing our app, we offer a free Q&A for any questions regarding the Geeklist API to be used on Windows Phone or Windows 8 or in any .NET based application!

Just use the email and insert the word QANDA into the subject line. That's it!

We also want to encourage you, to send us anything that you would like to see in the future API versions, so that we can pass your whishes directly to the Geeklist development Team!

 Known issues

Geeklist is encountering changes every single day. This means that also the API is under heavy development. Currently we need to refactor lot's of code to keep track with the changes, and to port code to different platforms. As soon as new changes will be officially available, we will implement those as soon as possible.
