A note about the new MacDailyNews iOS app and the issue which can prevent a valid token from being created in the new app for a small percentage of users that results in some users not receiving push notifications:
MacDailyNews 3.0.1 was submitted to Apple’s App Store for review on the afternoon of December 18th just hours after initial release of the app. This issue did not affect any beta testers (48 versions worth; this app was tested extensively). As soon as Apple reviews and approves 3.0.1, all users will be able to update their app to the latest version.
Thanks to our excellent developer, Empirical Development, for quickly identifying the issue and correcting it so rapidly. They were done with everything before we got our first email from an affected user! Out of thousands of users of the new app, we’ve so far heard from less than 10 who were affected.
Thanks also to so many users who have rated and/or written reviews of our new app on the App Store and for those who contacted us with such nice compliments and suggestions for future versions!
To affected users, we apologize for the delay, but this is how the App Store works. We trust that as soon as Apple can get to it, it will be made available on the App Store. To those affected, thank you so much for your patience. Restoration of your Push Notifications are on the way! We’ll let you know as soon as it’s reviewed, approved and available on the App Store.
The all-new MacDailyNews app (soon to be v.3.0.1) is available via Apple’s App Store here.
