GeekUtils Apps reviewed on YouTube?

Thursday, July 29th, 2010

So, we were just searching through YouTube last night and we found some people that had taken time out of their day to review several of our apps.  We took a moment to comment on each one, but would like to thank each of you who did this.

We’re glad to see people enjoy our apps, and glad to see that they enjoy them enough to spread the word.  Thanks again!

Our official YouTube channel does not yet contain any videos, but we have favorited each of those reviews.  Please be sure to check it out – – If you’d like to subscribe, feel free.  We have plans to periodically post short videos talking about upcoming products, and to provide general help using our apps.


Latest update and the iPad

Wednesday, July 28th, 2010

A few of you have reported to us that our latest updates to our apps will only play videos in Portrait orientation on the iPad.  We have been able to duplicate the issue and are looking for resolution.

The YouTube player that we use to play the video is the one that is built-in to the device, so we have not changed any code here.  The only thing that we can assume is that there is some form of an incompatibility between our apps built for iOS 4.0 when running on the iPad’s iPhone OS 3.2.

We have run testing on many other devices of varying firmware versions and all devices work fine in portrait or landscape mode with the exception of the iPad.

We’ll keep you posted as we look into this to see if we can push out an update that resolves this issue.  In the meantime, if you are using an iPad, you may want to hold off on the update(s)

Updates now available!

Monday, July 26th, 2010

So on the 22nd, we told you about an update that was coming soon that would:

  • Allow support for both iOS4 and iPhone OS 3.0.  Our previous updates removed support for iPhone OS 3.0 – but we’re happy to announce that it is back!  Those using iPhone OS 3.x will still enjoy the same functionality they always have.  Those who are using iOS4 can now utilize fast app switching, and those with the iPhone4 can now enjoy high resolution graphics!
  • A small bug fix to our video listing view
  • A new “Copy Link” function via the actions menu on blog entries, videos, channels, and store items that will copy a link to the current content to your clipboard so that you can easily tweet, SMS, or otherwise post a link to your favorite social networking site.

We just got notification of availability from Apple, so it may take a few hours before the update shows “available” and appears in your “Updates” section of the app store.

Also – the update for Unofficial iJustine that fixes display issues on the mobile blog view and includes the features above is now available as well.

We hope you are enjoying the updates.  If you have any questions, concerns, or suggestions – please contact us via the About tab in any of our apps!

Twitter back up and running… ;)

Saturday, July 24th, 2010

Twitter has resolved the outage that was causing issues with the twitter views inside each of our vlogger apps.  Everything should be back up and running now.

If you are running iOS4, you may need to press the “Home” button in the upper right corner of the twitter screen in order to reload the twitter page.

If you continue to have problems, or if you ever want to report a bug, feature suggestion, or just say hi – don’t forget that you can always use the “Contact” Button on the about tab in any of our apps to contact us.

Hello everyone!  We just wanted to inform you that we are currently experiencing difficulty with the twitter view we use in our apps.  We have contacted twitter to report the issue and hope to have resolution soon.
