Geopher 1.1 has been released in the app store as of this morning. Please let me know if there are any issues that need resolved. I'll probably be a bit slower on updating, but I have no plans to shelve this and close up shop either, so suggestions are welcome.

Thanks everyone for using Geopher Lite!

Still no word

...from apple on approval.

No news I suppose is good news.

A note to users who may be seeing the new screenshots on the iTunes store. These screenshots represent the new pending version. Apologies if this causes any confusion.

edit: Firday, Sep 11, still no word from apple. I'll post here when the update is available.

So I got an email back from apple a little while ago.

Apparently it's not a good idea to have a blank google maps interface or a blank search box when a user has no internet connectivity. I've got to add an alert or something to notify the user or this "could lead to user confusion".

They sent me this screenshot back to make the point.

I guess I don't think you all are that ignorant, but I could be wrong. =)

I actually appreciate this about apple, though it is slightly annoying. I never particularly thought this was an issue, but I suppose that some might consider it confusing. I'm glad they are working to keep apps as quality as possible. It is, however, just another obstacle to get my changes to you guys, that's the real downside. Ah well, at least the rejection was fairly positive and suggested that I re-submit the app after this was taken care of.

I'll update with this in mind and resubmit this evening sometime.
