double d - no crash

double d - no crash

Due to the unforeseen popularity of RegenRadar, I decide to ship a quick update version to fix some annoyances. See above the result: now with panning and zooming (and it will remember the state) and always visible time information. The version is submitted to Apple and should be available in the App Store in about a week.

<tekk>The second point (clock) forced me to write my own MRImageAnimater, since UIImageView does not support notifying on frame changes. Additional side effect: since I threw out the UIImageView the application is much more stable.</tekk>

Which brings me to the last point of my post: At least two users reported crashes on their devices. I take beta testing very seriously and I test every new app version extensively for a few days on my own device, where I never managed to crash RegenRadar (and I tried pressing all buttons at once immediately after startup). But here comes the problem: I only own one device (IPhone 3G 16GB, OS 2.1), so I cannot test every configuration.

To help improve the app, could you file more complete bug/crash reports as comments to this post? If possible, they should include device type, OS version, what you did when the app crashed and if IPod was running in the background or not. Thank you, your help is appreciated.

PS: I downloaded FieldRunners yesterday and played it for two battery loads. I am stuck at wave 43. Any advice/help would be appreciated.
