Thanks for the detail, it does help a little.
I am one of those early backers. I waited and waited for my Flic to arrive, with all the date delays. Then waited some more because by the time it arrived I was living in a different country (fortunately it got shipped to a relative's house) (not your fault, I know).
I finally received my flic after moving back to my home country. Then I found my 18 month old android phone wasn't compatible (software wise I think?). Fair enough really.
Fast forward another few months. Finally upgrade my phone to a newer model. Open flic app excitedly. Discover it's android 6.0 incompatible. I have to wait until my phone provider releases the android update (or take a risk and do it myself). Then, a week later, I get an email saying the flic is going to be upgraded. Great, I think, when my phone is eventually updated it'll be good. Except not, because my flic doesn't have the ability to do it.
I'm glad lessons have been learned from all the above. Hopefully one day I'll actually get to use the thing.
(It probably goes to show my faith in that it'll eventually work is that I'm still considering your email offer.)
