Corps app is down but not out

Users may have gotten this error message recently while trying to access Savannah Corps’ lake level app. We’re working to update it.

For those who’ve upgraded their iPhones to iOS11, you’ve probably noticed our app has been inaccessible for a while. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Once we learned our app required recoding to work on iOS11, we figured a standard update (a day’s work) would get the job done.

It turns out Apple’s new operating system was quite an overhaul (if your I’s have been auto correcting to A?s, you know exactly what we’re talking about), and we also ran into some complications with our Apple license and certificates.

We do believe we’ve nailed down all the issues, and we’ve resubmitted (for the third time) the final update to Apple. Apple customer service said it could be another seven days before the update is available.

So we’re not there yet, but we’re closer to the goal. We thank you for your patience as we work through this issue.

    I’m sure this is no consolation to Apple users but if it is the Corps app isn’t the only one effected, many are. Put another check mark in why I won’t get an Apple product. Keep after it I’m sure you will nail it

      Hmmmm…. Rigorous product control is one reason I prefer Apple.

      To each his own. Isn’t this a great country?

  • Tom & Terry,
    Thanks for your comments — the great part about the current state of affairs is that we can be on both Apple & Android so you don’t have to choose. It wasn’t too long ago that even Word documents couldn’t be transferred between the operating systems.
    As Terry said, it’s this country (and technology) great?!

    I’m not sure how the I to A bug caused the disconnect in understanding upgrade requirements. Wouldn’t that have been discovered a long time after the compatibility changes would have needed to be made?

    • Mr. Williams,
      Good morning — we weren’t implying the I to A bug caused it, only that our issue was also related to the iOS11 upgrade.
