Houseparty is a blast. We got my parents on it and were chatting with them as they were turning in for the night, and then suddenly some of my friends joined our party from a rowdy bar in NYC. It was a hilarious clash of worlds. One comment- it is a mega battery drainer. I know it's a given that videochat would use more battery than other apps, but do you guys have anything underway to try to optimize battery usage?

Trying to figure out if 1.0s are as significant as they used to be? But if this is Houseparty 1.0, here's what's new: Psst...we've got a secret to tell you. We've been working on a shiny new version of the app and it's finally HERE! Try it out for a fast(er) connection, smoother video and way less lagging. Oh, and did we mention that we're looking fresh on iPad? More improvements to come because like a fine wine, we get better with age.

@chrismessina haha chris. nothing too big on features side. we just fixed technical debt of growing a *whole lot* since august. so not a lot of features besides iPad support, product that's actually working on android and lastly, conversations should not fail as much.

@benrbn cool, well, congrats on reaching the 1.0 milestone, even if, in your numbering scheme, it's a minor one! :)
