  2. Just loaded iOS4 on my iPhone and this App no longer works. Just bombs out after 5 seconds. I hope they can fix it soon with an update…

  3. Hey Phil

    I got the same but this morning they have issued the new release which fixes those issues

    Update the app today and you will be back in the game!

  4. Yep – I got the update this morning too. Great that they fixed it quick. Very happy as I’m off to NZ next week for the snow, and I can see they’ve had a lot this week. Yay!
