1.24 Finally Available!

  • Admin

    We just hit the release button for 1.24, it should be hitting your local App Stores shortly.
    This update was supposed to be a smaller bug fix update but sort of grew into a major feature release. We've added some much needed enhancements and fixed a lot of bugs.

    Additionally we're making a major change to hyperPad pricing. hyperPad is no longer a free app. We've decided to make it a single purchase, and you automatically get access to all the developer tier features. So for $14.99 you get all the awesome features including exporting to the App Store!
    All enthusiast(indie) and student users get upgraded for free. Existing free users can still access the "Enthusiast" in-app purchase (will be upgraded to developer as well), as a special promotion we'll be keeping the price of the in-app purchase the same so you can take advantage of this cheap upgrade.

    If you're a monthly developer subscriber, you can cancel your subscription and keep the developer status.

    As usual, if you have any question or comments about this update, we'll leave the thread open for discussion.

  • @murtaza Finally, I don't have to be broke to be a developer. Thanks 😁

  • @murtaza Yet I still have to be "KA" :(

  • No tier label either, unlike some other users. I bought hyperPad a week after it's release, when I think it was just a paid app (and got transferred to "indie" tier, is this an issue?

    Once the update came out, one of my projects were unable to be edited or played on. It would display a blank screen, like the project was empty...

    Other users are having the same issue. Please fix! 😭

    This is a screenshot of me playing a project, and it's blank... Weird.

    @RobinsonX can you share a link to your project and then open it and see if that fixes your issue?

  • Admin

    @kamdroid Will fix it shortly Should be fixed now

  • Admin

    It looks like a small number of users on iOS 12+ with older projects are affected by an invalid permissions issue. This is because Apple updated sqlite and no longer use journaling on sqlite databases.

    You can fix it with the instructions below:

    Go into files app, navigate into the hyperPad folder and into to your affected hyperpad project.

    Navigate into Levels Folder.

    Navigate into Level 1 folder.

    There are going to be 3 Level files. Press and hold each one and determine what the file extension is by clicking on Info

    Delete the files that have the extension sqlite-wal and sqlite-shm

    Or send us the project and we can fix it for you.

  • @hamed Still can't change profile picture (same "must be developer" pop up) and no tier displayed on my hub profile either.

  • Thank you @Hamed, that fixed it! 😊

  • Admin

    @Kamdroid just tested it. I'm now a cat!

  • Works now :)

  • @Hamed Are there any plans to expand the hyperPad shop? Would love to see new assets on there!

    @stanica said in 1.24 Finally Available!:

    @Hamed Are there any plans to expand the hyperPad shop? Would love to see new assets on there!

    We'll be adding more stuff soonish. The goal is to open it up so users can put their own content there eventually :)

  • I can imagine a lot of amazing content when you add the ability to import a project/behaviour/scene in an existing project.

  • I’m late to notice this but I don’t think I got upgraded from enthusiast to developer

  • Admin

    @T-Studios you should be upgraded now

  • Just a quick question... I've been a Hyperpad user for a long long time. Does that mean I'm permanently a developer now, or just for a month? @Hamed

    Also, I think Hyperpad would benefit from a Discord server.

  • Admin


    Permanently. We’ve changed the pricing model so so everyone is developer. If for some reason we go free again, you still keep it. We don’t take things away :)
