Update Submitted for Doris App for iPhone

Thanks to all the users who wrote in about the Doris crashes after updating to iOS4, a new binary was uploaded to Apple last night and should be with you shortly!  Thanks for your patience.

Login problems fixed with Read Later app

There was an issue with the new Yahoo login feature on our Read Later app, this is now fixed since our latest update went live in the App Store last night.

Yahoo had changed the HTML on their login page which we scrape to allow for easy logins from our app.  The fix, which consisted in changing one line of HTML, took over a week to be accepted by Apple!

Apologies for the inconvenience.

Major Update for My High Street app

On May 4th we released a major update for our My High Street app.  At last you can view your favourites brands and retailers within the app, no need to quit out into the Maps app.

Also we added the ability to search by brand or retailer.  Rather than having to scroll through the hundreds of High Street brands stored within the app, simply pull down the categories list and type in  your search, just a few letters are needed to bring up the relevant results.

Here’s a full list of the new features and improvements in version 1.3:

  • maps now work inline
  • integration with Maps app for directions
  • integration with the Contacts app
  • email a location to a friend
  • search for any brand

Update for Read Later released

On April 8th 2010 we released a major update for our Read Later iPhone app.  Users will happy to hear you can now login to the app either with your Yahoo ID, or a Delicious ID.

As some users may be aware, in the last few months Delicious has changed its account creation policy and now you may only create new accounts using a Yahoo ID.  Existing Delicious accounts are still functional, and those users may optionally migrate their account to be Yahoo ID based.

Some other exciting features that made it into this release:

  • you can now view original webpage saved, as well as the offline version
  • we implemented a rotation lock for those who prefer a specific device orientation
  • shake to update: shake your iPhone to check for new links added to Delicious
  • the swipe to delete animation was improved
