A new version of AP Mobile has been loaded to the Apple App Store. Version 2.0.1 addresses the bug that some users were seeing when upgrading from 1.5.1. The new version also allows users to view weather in Celsius or Fahrenheit. We will update this post when the application goes live on App Store.
AP Mobile 2.0 has launched today on iTunes. You can download the application directly from iTunes App Store.
Please note: This is considerable update to AP News. Some users who already have 1.5.1 are experiencing problems upgrading to 2.1. We are working on a urgent fix to this but, in the meantime, please delete AP News from your phone before downloading and installing.
