IWGuide issue – new version on the way

We are terribly sorry, but IWGuide version 1.2 has a bug that crash the application when you try to view a movie detail. The problem is due to a change last minute and unfortunately our testing missed it.

A new version: 1.2.1 has been submitted to the AppStore review and we have requested an expedited review. If the expedited review is approved, version 1.2.1 should hopefully appear on the AppStore a couple hours after the approval of that process.

Unfortunately there is no workaround for the problem, we sincerely apologize for the problem.

IWGuide reviewed by MacObserver.com

Yesterday IWGuide for Netflix has been reviewed by the site MacObserver.com. You can read the review “IWGuide for Netflix: What’s Coming & Going” by David Winograd at http://www.macobserver.com/tmo/review/iwguide_for_netflix_whats_coming_and_going/.

Overall the review is honest and point out the benefits of IWGuide for Netflix. The author of the review correctly mention the incorrect data reported by IWGuide regarding the movie definition HD/SD but unfortunately that information is being provided by Netflix web service API. So until Netflix fixes their incorrect data, there is not much that IWGuide for Netflix could do.

IWGuide 1.1 is now available

Earlier this morning a new version of IWGuide has been approved on the AppStore.

The new version has the following new features:

  • improved information for the following category: coming soon, going away. Instead of simply showing the date for the title, IWGuide will now show the number of days until the movie arrive or until the movie goes away. It make it a lot easier to know what great title is coming or when to watch a movie that will be going away.
  • the startup screen will now show a small cover (like a magazine) of the main top movies, and it will show how many movies are available in each category
  • the startup wizard has been improved too
  • various bugs have been eliminated

Feel free to contact us if you have any questions regarding IWGuide.
