Along with the release of Daylite Touch for iPad today, we’re releasing Daylite and Daylite Server 3.13.
The main reason for this release is the change to the Daylite Touch licensing structure.
Previously, if a user had an iPhone and an iPod touch (or iPad), they’d require 2 licenses to be able to sync both devices with their Daylite database.
When we developed the licensing structure for Daylite Touch, the iPad wasn’t even a rumour. At this time, most Apple customers (and our customers) only used one iOS device – an iPhone OR an iPod touch, as the two products are almost identical.
Sure people had an iPod touch for their car stereo, but in almost all cases, people were accessing Daylite from only one iOS device.
This has since changed, as many people (including us) use both an iPhone AND an iPad on a regular basis.
For the release of Daylite Touch 1.6, which adds native iPad support a user needs only one license of Daylite Touch to support all of their iOS devices. A user will be able to run Daylite Touch from their iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad with only one license.
To take advantage of the changes, please make sure you download the latest version of Daylite and Daylite Server (3.13) from here, and download Daylite Touch 1.6 on your iOS device from the App Store directly on your device, or from iTunes on your Mac.

We want to encourage the use of Daylite Touch, and that means being able to use it from any number of devices.
