Well, seems like I’m having one of those unlucky months (1, 2) This morning I’ve started receiving messages about XKit Mobile crashing upon startup, which is related to the “Net Neutrality” theme of the dashboard (spinning wheels instead of photos). Since this effect is only visible to United States users (although I’ve received messages about it being visible to UK and Australian users - and I’m not in any of these countries) the most I could do was post a tip I’ve received from a user.
Turns out, even though this fixes the problem on some accounts, on some accounts, the problem is still there. I’ve used a USA based VPN service (a proxy service) to test the application and it indeed crash on 2 of my 3 test accounts.
I wrote a fix and submitted it to Apple. As you know, on desktop versions, I can/do push updates instantly, but on App Store, I have to wait for review process, which can take several days. I’ve requested an expedited review, which reduces that time to less than 24 hours, and am waiting for their approval.
The best case scenario is that they’ll review and publish it, and it will be fixed in a few hours. Worst case scenario is that they will not accept the expedited review request, and it will be fixed once Tumblr stops the themed dashboard, which should be less than 24 hours.
Once again, I’m terribly, terribly sorry about this. You have every right to be mad, since this is an oversight on my behalf (the original code was missing a check that could prevent this from happening) but my hands are completely tied and for now there is nothing I can do but apologize and ask for your patience and support.
Thank you so much,
The Xkit Guy.
