Headline Timestamp Issue

Some users have been experiencing a timestamp issue in headline packages on the iPhone 1.4 and 1.4.1 MNN releases, with a “December 31, 1969” date showing in place of the  correct date or “X minutes ago” notice.  

We are working to resolve the problem.  Until then, the recommended workaround is to change your device clock from 12 hour mode to 24  hour mode.  We will update this posting once a permanent fix is put into place.

If you continue to have problems, email us at mnnfeedback@ap.org or complete the form below with your email address, device type (iPod Touch/iPhone), the Reference # (available from the Mobile News section in Settings) and a short description of the issue.
