Some days the bear gets you.

Grumpy Bear

Some days you get the bear; some days the bear gets you. The last two days, the bear has chased me, pounced on me, mauled me and left me for dead.

As many of you are aware, we have temporarily removed Audiotorium Notes from the app store. This is due to a bug we identified shortly after version 1.8.2 was released; a bug that doesn’t appear in testing scenarios, but that most certainly appears when upgrading from the app store. The bug, which heretofore will be named “grumpy”, causes the database to become corrupted and not display any data — categories, subjects or notes. This is, admittedly, bad. However, the data is still on the device and can be accessed via the WiFi sharing option, just not from within the app. We’ve submitted an emergency update to Apple and they will hopefully approve it quickly.

This release was targeted to iOS 4.2 GM in order to support new features of the upcoming OS and the bug appears to be directly related to that.  We’ve submitted a report to Apple regarding the problem and hope to hear back from them soon.

In the meantime, we are sincerely sorry for the disruption this has caused.

Does fix the bug and is it compatible with 4.2?

Love this app so far!

Any plans for the ability to change font color and highlight text?

Connie: It fixes almost all issues. 1.8.3 has been submitted to the app store which fixes the remaining ones. Now we can focus on adding features our users want again.

Jaime: We have plans to support a subset of RTF, including bold, italic, color and highlight. We don’t have a definite release schedule for that yet — we have a couple of other features which we are focusing on at the moment.
