Awaiting Apple Approval on Update for iOS 4

More than a few of you have written us to complain that the Redfin app for iPhone and iPod crashes on new versions of Apple’s mobile operating system, iOS 4. The new operating system comes standard with the new iPhone 4, but you can also download it through iTunes to an iPhone 3 or iPhone 3GS; the main features are multi-tasking, a unified inbox, and folders for organizing apps.

The problem with Redfin arises when you search for an area like Capitol Hill, then try to zoom in or pan the map. At that point, the Redfin app crashes. Before iOS 4 came out, we tested the Redfin app against a simulator without finding this problem. Once iOS 4 was available to download to an iPhone, we found the bug straight away. Last night we sent off a new version of the Redfin app to Apple for approval.

The updated Redfin app isn’t available via iTunes yet, but it shouldn’t be too long now; most updates sail right through. We’ll let you know when we hear from Apple. For now, thanks to everyone who has emailed us, and keep your fingers crossed that the fix is in!

    I have been able to use the regular site on Android because it supports Flash. Some of the buttons are a little fiddly to use via touch however, so an app would be appreciated. Given the new iPhone's conectivity issues it seems that producing an app for phones that work should be a higher priority.
