Grab It Early Episode iOS 8 Fix Incoming

If you've updated to the latest iOS 8, you may find that earlier episodes of Grab It will not open, or crash after opening. Never fear, updates to all of these apps have been submitted to Apple and are awaiting approval - normal functionality will resume shortly.

If you'd like to know what happened, I'd be happy to elaborate - but do keep in mind that my frustration is simmering like a volcano on every following word.

It turns out that Adobe's reader has a bug in it that was discovered on September 13. Said bug related to the new OS update and you know what, these things can happen with a new operating system. It's a really easy fix, too. All you need to do is resubmit your app to Apple through the most current DPS software.

Unfortunately, Adobe didn't deem its paying subscribers important enough to be informed about such a bug and the process required to fix it. So instead of receiving an email advising that we should go ahead and update our apps so that our customers could carry on reading about great new indie games without a hiccup, I had to find out from our readers a week later. Then trawl through the forums. Then ask a staff member to tell me what happened and what to do. Then resubmit the app to Apple, which takes a further week to get approved.

Stay tuned.
