D-90 App - any updates for iPhone 5?

I have had the iPhone 5 now, and am wondering if there are any updates to the app coming. The current d-90 app does not fill up the screen, so when typing the space bar is not all the way at the bottom - it's "floating" about a quarter inch above the bottom. Thisresultsinmetypinganentiresentencewithoutactual lyhittingthespacebar which auto correct has issues deciphering.

Also, when typing a reply, the Send button does not illuminate sometimes, and therefore does not function. And when it does work, if I go to add a picture and come back to the previous screen to hit Send, the text that I wrote before going to attach a picture is missing.

Sorry about the issues, the developers of the app (Forum Runner) are aware of the issues on iOS6. It's been reported on their forum and I opened a support ticket with them last week. They said they would be pushing out a new version of the app in the near future but I don't have an ETA. I'll post more as soon as I have some details.

Like me figuring out how to upload photos from the app.

I still find it funny that Ron wanted to buy the forum but can't figure out how to post a photo.


The maps app blows (to put it lightly). I use the map function all the time to figure out the best walk/transit route for where I need to go throughout the city. With the old phone and google-powered map, it was all pretty simple. From Destination A to Destination B then select the bus picture/tab for mass transit route. Now it's select From Desination A to Destination B in the Apple Map, then choose mass transit, then it opens in Hop Stop app (which, it had been so long since I used it I had no idea where that was on my phone), so if went out of the Hop Stop to use the iPod function, I had to go back and find Hop Stop and hope it was still loaded in there. Then, I had to confirm it all by using a 3rd app which is just the MTA subway map.

3 apps to accomplish what the Google-powered map used to do in one. What asses.


The fly-over function is pretty freaking awesome, if not a little bit too intrusive - I was at a party on Saturday and we were practically looking in the top floor apt window (which was the host's apt).

I read the sarcasm font But I do still kinda like it. They put the road numbers on top of the route which makes a lot of sense.

It comes in way closer than Bing's maps and the picture is more crisp and clear. It will add a whole new level to cyber stalking.

I just got notice that new apps are available in the App store which should fix the iPhone 5 issues. I am currently using an Android phone so if you all could test and confirm that it's working, that would be appreciated!

Having trouble with iPad app from unresponsive buttons. "Forums" and "Current" buttons not working. Deleted app and reinstalled and did 2-button reboot.

Having same issue on my iPad. Works great on iPhone 5, but the bottom (including labeled buttons) and right side of screen on iPad are unresponsive.

Unfortunately the "update" for ipad users has been a colossal fail. We've reported this to the developer who is working on a solution and the suggested work around in the interim is to restart the app with the tablet in portrait orientation. Hoping for a speedy fix for this....

Have both set up on my phone. Very similar.
