Does Your Iphone 3G Keep Crashing Even After 2.0.1
The unique aspect of software is that it gets updated frequently, and Apple's mechanism for updating apps is very slick, at least conceptually. Currently, every time you update an app it deletes the old version and then annoyingly installs a new icon in some other random place in your phone's pages of app icons, rather than replacing the old icon with the new one. Hopefully, this behavior will be fixed soon, as having to rearrange your icons every time there's an update really gets irritating. This behavior was not fixed in the 2.0.1 update that just came out, but it does make it slightly easier to fix your icons after they are messed up, as it now allows you to drag an app's icon across multiple pages in one step. We'd rather it just replace the old app with the new one though.Â
Does your iphone 3G keep crashing even after 2.0.1
In the case of dysfunctional apps that won't open on the device, deleting the offending app and re-syncing it over from iTunes usually helps, but make sure you have done a backup of your iPhone after buying any apps from the unit directly, or else you'll have to write Apple to request the ability to download any purchased apps again. The iTunes Store does not recognize that you've already bought an app and allow you to download it again, it only asks if you're sure you want to purchase it again. On the device itself, purchased apps in the Apps Store are badged with an "installed" tag rather than any install option, but still can't be downloaded again.Â
We also noticed that after uploading lots of apps up to iTunes from one device, syncing them down to another iPhone resulted in a mixed up jumble of icons on the second device, rather than an orderly set of home pages that matched our first phone. One app even failed to copy over on the first try, presenting an error message instead (below). It copied over on the second attempt. While most users are unlikely to have multiple iPhones, being able to keep icon positioning in sync between devices would be a nice touch.
With iPhone web app utilities, you can test your Internet access speed, track packages, and O2 (but not AT&T) even provides an MMS reader. Setting up a web app doesn't require any fees or approval from Apple, and properly developed web apps should work on any standards-compliant web browser (not just the iPhone). Why the pundit community has blackballed iPhone web apps is nearly as puzzling as why Apple has hidden them behind a really poorly conceived, iPhone-hostile web page that users have to seek out.
Quote:Originally Posted by Orng Great overview, but one point: The App store certainly does remember that you've already bought an app. I accidentally deleted Crash Nitrokart ($9.99) and WordPress (free) mysteriously disappeared as well (not sure why). They were not in the app tab in my iTunes, so I went to the store for the free wordpress app first, and after going through the whole process, it says "you have already purchased this item, do you want to download it for free again" Then I went for the 9.99 Crash Kart game, and sure enough, it remembered that I bought it before and offered me a free download.I think Prince was just saying that the iPhone Software does not remember the placement of application icons on the iPhone's home screen after each maintenance update. This means you have to continually reorganize your icon placements after individual app updates are installed.Best,Kasper

Once again shows re. costs charged to developers on other platforms, how Apple is thinking different. Loving my 3G and awaiting new MPB announcement.

But he also said the following, and I think it's important to clarify it, because we don't want to give the Apple haters fuel for their fire!
You'll see this error when Sauce Labs doesn't receive a response from Selenium or Appium to your script's last command in more than five minutes (the default duration for the timeout). Without this timeout, any tests in which the Selenium, Appium server, or browser crashes would keep running forever, consuming all test minutes available in your account.
If you find that you regularly need to examine test assets after the 30-day retention period, Sauce Labs recommends that you download your job assets if this is an information that you must keep in your records.
Now fingers crossed, and wait for the apple approval team to approve your app; It could be that the app reviewer needs some more clarification on the use case or other functionality of your app. They usually reply within two business days after the first submission, so keep an eye on your mailbox during these days to speed up the communication.
