Post Error: Unknown Error

posted Jan 26, 2011, 6:06 PM by Tony Tony   [ updated Jan 29, 2011, 6:36 AM ]

PowerFAQs 1.4.1 has been released. 
Free versions fixing this error is still pending until the following glitch fixed for the paid version.

However, High level users with the ability to access the new features, would have issue receiving false claim that
"Post Error: Unknown Error" although the message has been successfully posted.

To avoid this situation, you may goto board display settings using safari or any desktop computer. 
Adjust only the highlighted setting (Show Post Confirmation Screen), all others you may choose according to your preferences.

A fix addressing this would come soon.

(Special thanks to gameFAQs.com user, totehmaxx, for helping fixing this issue)
-------------------------------
Since early today. 
The message boards part of the gameFAQs.com has been updated.


now the PowerFAQs may not post new messages on the boards.
Fixing it soon.

Sorry for the down-time again. :(

Startup Crash?

posted Jan 26, 2011, 7:39 AM by Tony Tony

People are reporting that the Free Version got crash when the app starts up. 
Yes, for iPhone/iPod Touch with iOS 4.0 4.1, it apparently crash on startup with 1.4 update.
iPhone/iPod Touch with iOS 4.2 and iPad would NOT be affected, and the paid full PowerFAQs is not affected either.

I've submitted a fix to all free versions, should be up soon. 
sorry for the inconvenience caused.

And by popular request, the Apps would renamed to 'PowerFAQs' instead of 'PowerFaqs'

For those who interested in what happend.
This crash is due to iAd migration from on iOS 4.0, 4.1 to iOS 4.2. 
As the newer SDK suggests that to replace "ADBannerContentSizeIdentifier320x50" with "ADBannerContentSizeIdentifierPortrait"
because the former is deprecated. However the newer setting causes crash on order iOS like 4.0 and 4.1.
