Review from Kickstarter
I personally think that there is a big market out there for older cars. Afterall I won't get a new car just to get phone connectivity.
Kenneth Harrison
Review from Kickstarter
Sorry the business decision forced cancellation. I was also looking forward to this project for my older cars. But, you have done a great job on this project, so keep me in mind when you come up with your next!

Review from Kickstarter
I find it a great pity that the project is terminated, but make a deep bow to you for the way!
Tribute to the BlueJayTeam!

Review from Kickstarter
Like others I'm very impressed with the honest way the Bluejay project had it's wings clipped. The full offered refund is quite a bit different than another backed 'project' that recently pulled the plug and is returning 24.2% as a very hefty pledge.

Hi everybody,
we just want to say how incredibly thankful we are for your support and understanding! This nice comments are more than we could have imagined. This really was incredibly tough decision and we really did everything that was in our power. It is you, the backers that keep us going and give us power for future projects. Thank you again, Bluejay team

@Martijn - There are lots of magnetic mounts as an alternative. Just search Amazon.com for magnetic phone mount and you'll find lots!

Review from Kickstarter
sad too. My cars are older and don't have the newer info centers etc. This device would have been great. Thank you for your efforts though.

I'm on your next project after that email. Much love for your integrity.

Review from Kickstarter
I'm with Philipp. I would have been using this for at least several years. Nowhere near buying a new car anytime soon.

Review from Kickstarter
��� heartbroken that this had to end but applaud your honesty and integrity. Sending good vibes your way and wishing the best in any of the bluejay team's future endeavors.. together or apart.
Robert Shelton
Review from Kickstarter
Very sad to see this project end, but I am impressed by the integrity of the team. You're terrific folks! I hope we will see you back on Kickstarter with another visionary product soon.
Philipp
Review from Kickstarter
What a sad turn of events, but Big kudos for your honesty and the refund. I still think that this would have been a great product for several years. Not everyone will be willing to invest hundreds of $ for Apple or Android systems which will all need new hardware for existing cars.
Blujay would have been a nice add on to value up your old car with new features. But it is as it is. All the best for your future and my full respect on how you are ending this

Review from Kickstarter
I'm right there with you Martijn, I was really looking forward to this! The mag dock was going to be great! Maybe in the future they'll find some other reason to bring it back and I'll be right there funding it again!
Martijn van Unen
Review from Kickstarter
Owww and not to forget the big applause for Bluejay to end the project in this way! I really appreciate the refund. We all know the risk in investing in a company like you. I hope you guys (and girls ;) ) will find another challenging job opportunity. Many thanks for the work done!

Review from Kickstarter
Thats sad!!!! Now I have to search for another product... I only needed a phone holder and the way it was designed by Bluejay was a 100% match. All other features where a plus and not really needed. For the design, the easy way to dock your phone with magnets I was willing to pay the price. Is there a good alternative?

Hello everybody!
I hope you've had a good week so far. @Thibaut We are expecting the first bluejay to be shipped in November. @Johnathan Chung Thank you for the offer, we will keep you in mind if we decide to do any of the testing in California. @Brenda May Right now there is nothing really mayor to update you about. We are well on our way to the manufacturing phase so keep an eye out for that. @Philipp Thank you for the comment and your good faith. This is also our prefered way of updateting you as it enables us to focus a bit more on the work. @James Rose We are sorry to hear that but we will respect your wishes. Best regards,
Team Bluejay

@kiwifactory I would be happy to help test it out here in California!

Review from Kickstarter
Time for an update? In my experience of the things that infuriates people the most, is being kept in the dark. Even if the news is not going to be all good, do try to make an effort to keep the people who believed in your product and backed you, up to speed...
Philipp
Review from Kickstarter
@James Rose
I agree - lack of updates is a bad sign.
Only question that remains is about what you wanted to say with your comment? I don't have the feeling that we have a lack of updates here... I prefer the way it is done here: admitting that the project is running late and providing a new and more realistic date.
This is way better than other projects where you repeatingly keep hearing: we are in track - just a few days more... And it then gradually sums up to several months. Bluejay: keep working, keep developing, keep testing, make this a great product!
James Rose
Review from Kickstarter
A crowdfunding expert once told me that one of most significant indicators that a project is going to fail is a lack of updates.....
MaxStarter
Review from Kickstarter
I've had experience with bad projects, and they are frustrating. Generally Kickstarter has improved and Bluejay is one of the better projects, in my experience. Looking forward to getting my Bluejay

Really keep it!!!

Review from Kickstarter
@Timothy Jones Sorry to hear that, we will however still ship your Bluejay once ready. Hopefully we will change your mind regarding Kickstarter projects. @Andrew Kent We agree with your sentiments. Thank you for the positive energy. @everyone Thank you for working together. It brings joy to us to see that a community is developing. Since our update we have been cruising trough testing the preproduction prototype. So far we have solved all the problems we've encountered and we have done extreme weather testing, stress tests ...
After this phase the tooling phase will begin and then the first production pieces will be produced. We sincerely hope you have a lovely day.

I'm done with this 4out of 6 projects backed shoddy seems Kickstarter is not for me so long suckers. Keep your bluejay where the sun don't shine.
Andrew Kent
Review from Kickstarter
The delay in this product doesn't worry me and is not surprising - it's pretty standard for Kickstarter. We will hopefully all benefit from a better product in the long run. What is unacceptable is failing to keep us all in the loop - we don't need a massive update every day but brief updates in the comments are helpful so we don't think you've just run off with our cash. Here's hoping things improve from now!

Review from Kickstarter
I believe that having a Kickstarter project is a lot of things for the creator. Sort of like a soft opening to the real world. How this project goes is very important. In the real world there are penalties for not being able to stick to your own time line, maintain good customer care & communication. This is your testing ground learn from it. It's never to late.

Review from Kickstarter
Still in design and development? That can't be. Surly not.

@Jerry: shipping address is still open for editing at BackerKit:

Review from Kickstarter
Anyone know how to update/change a shipping address? Since this isn't coming until November, I'll have moved by then. I thought I could do from the 'Your a backer' link but I don't anyplace to change my shipping address. Thanks!
Kevin Yasutomi
Review from Kickstarter
For something to be reliable, I understand testing needs to be done, so this doesn't hurt my expectations at all. While I would like it earlier, I want it to be reliable and to work as well as the expectations put on it demand.

Review from Kickstarter
Finally at least you guys did respond....I was quite afraid because I backed a project about 10mo ago (Tesla Lighter) and the project was never funded , the creator seemed to of tried to pull a fast one :/.....thank you thank you, I have been wanting something like this for quite some time and in also very happy because you also have a case for the V10!!!!!!!

Slack!!! Excuses!!!
Jonathan Chung
Review from Kickstarter
Thanks for the big update. I think what's everyone got upset, is that the post about a month ago. One of your employees that have access to posting, gave notice that we were going to be given an update. I would like for companies is to give little minor posts just so that backers know you're still here. I've backed up a lot of projects, such as the Helix Cuff by Ashley Chloe, and it was nice that they did give small updates in the comment section.

Review from Kickstarter
I'm ok with the update, even quite with the delay. I don't need to know about every minor change, but I need to know that there will be delay, which is not a short one. And i don't think you've realized it while preparing the update. Anyway, thank you and hope everything goes smooth from now. Good luck.
The Kiwi Factory
Review from Kickstarter
Hello everyone, We understand you have questions regarding the updates and the project itself.
Our intent was to put out major updates instead of minor as the changes we make regarding the designs are all minor and writing up an update just to say we moved a surface one millimeter seemed unnecessary and a waste of your and our time.
The update will explain everything in detail later this afternoon. Any comments will be from this point onward answered in the shortest time possible. We also promise to post updates more often.
The project has had blood, sweat and tears poured into it by all of us and we will deliver what we promised. Bluejay team

Review from Kickstarter
@MaxStarter it's not the delay that annoys people, it's the fact they can't be bothered to even give us a brief update!
MaxStarter
Review from Kickstarter
Some have reported that this is 'the worst project they've backed'. Can't have backed many tech projects, as most are delayed. If you really want comment angst, check out Yufu, StoneTether or ZANO amongst others.

I've reported the campaign. I still want the product and don't mind the wait, but the lack of communication is killing me.
