Professional software developer and researcher, occasionally contracting but spending most of my time as a research associate in London.

Developer of Six to Eight (sixtoeightapp.com), an iOS client for the Stack Exchange network. It's free, so why not take a look?

@Lipis - Yes, planning on it. An "Enthusiast" edition is currently under development, adding push notification, iPad specific UI and other...special features :)

Thanks for the quick fix, Kevin. But, erm, could we perhaps get some regression testing run every time you push an update? I've had four or five of these panics caused by behaviour changes due to new code , and 1 star App Store reviews that might accrue during faults don't go away!

You need to build a CSSite object via - (id)initWithDescriptor:(CSSiteDescriptor*)_descriptor;. To build a site descriptor, either use CSSiteDescriptors (id)initWithName:(NSString*)_name andEndPoint:(NSString*)_api_endpoint;, or use CSAuth, calling updateSites then using the sites property (which is an object vector of the CSSiteDescriptors provided by StackAuth) once your delegate is notified that the site list is available.

Hopefully :). I do need to retest everything, but I'll do my best to make the change for the next version. I'd not considered jailbreaks, which is a good reason to stay behind (I guess, I've not tried it :).

I can probably work around and make it run in 4.0 for the next release. I can certainly see reticence in upgrading from 3.x to 4, but 4 to 4.1 is really just "plug in, wait 30 minutes whilst having coffee & danish, unplug". The upgrade stats suggest to me that most people have already done so, and some of the bug fixes are compelling, so I'd encourage you to upgrade regardless of Six to Eight.

This is a fair point, and I confess it had slipped my mind from beta testing. V1.1 is in the review queue now, but I'll squeeze a fix into the next version. Sorry!

I suspect you're right, but they really need to focus more on their power users/enthusiasts. It's what builds communities. Alienating them or making them feel abandoned is a sure fire way to let them drift off, and if I do say so myself, we're hard to replace.

Great idea about adding the app to my SO profile. I agree with the need for some kind of "App hub" site for end users. I rather think that SOF Inc. need to have a better end user master for the whole network, that could include apps that offer other ways of accessing the network or using the data.

Ah, but how does one advertise StackList? :)
