Service alert: N&O apps on iPhones now functional with all iOS versions

From staff reportsOctober 30, 2013 

Our iPhone apps are now functioning in iOS 7.0.3, if you update to the latest version, 1.2.5.

If you do not have auto-app updates enabled on your iPhone, you can update your apps manually in the App Store under “Updates,” then push Update button next to our app.

Starting last Wednesday, iPhone users on iOS 7.0.3 were no longer able to access our apps beyond the launch screen. This occurred because, as part of iOS 7.0.3, Apple pulled support for the font HelveticaNeue-Italic, a font our iPhone apps used. Apple did not forewarn developers that they were deprecating this font.

We released a new version of our apps to Apple on Friday, but Apple did not release this version of our apps to the App Store until this week.
