We are happy to announce that we have partnered with Shopify to keep you up to date on your orders in real-time, celebrate milestones and much more. Check out the official Shopify apps in the Tidbyt app. Tidbyt is now also available to buy through http://shopify.supply/display
Leave it to Shopify to break something cool!
The Shopify app available within the Tidbyt iOS setup app requires a “counter ID” with no mention of where someone might get that. Searching the web for it reveals a Shopify hardware device with the same name. Investigating that leads to a “Counter” app that can be installed within a Shopify store… but that also doesn’t give you the “counter ID;” it magically bypasses the Tidbyt iOS app and writes directly to the Tidbyt.
I deleted the Shopify app from my store, because the output wasn’t interesting or useful. Now my Tidbyt is stuck with a “We it a snag” error message in regular rotation… and I can’t delete it because there’s no app associated with it.
