We want to hear from you!

Wednesday, February 16th, 2011

It’s no mistaking that 2011 is off to a great start here at GeekUtils.  We have some great updates and enhancements planned for all of our apps this year, but we still want to hear from you.  Do you have ideas for new features or functions?  Maybe you know of a great new YouTube channel and you think we should contact them to build them an app?  Maybe you’ve found a bug in one of our products, or have a suggestion for an enhancement that would make one of the features of our app easier to use?

If any of these describes you – please contact us.  The quickest way is to simply open any of our apps, go to the “More” tab, touch “About” and then touch the “Send GeekUtils and e-Mail” button.  (NOTE: this is the case in the majority of our apps, but in some apps the “About” tab is located elsewhere in the app).  This will pop up the e-mail app where you can send us your thoughts, suggestions, complaints, bug reports, or just take a moment to say hello and tell us how you like our apps :).

We look forward to hearing from you!

Why you need to set date and time correctly.

Thursday, August 19th, 2010

We’ve gotten a couple of people who have e-mailed us over the past couple of months where they tell us that in any of our apps, none of the videos will play.

The solution for this problem is simple.  When the iPod touch, iPad (and iPhones on some carriers) go completely dead, they lose the date and time settings.   The YouTube authorization algorithm requires that the date and time are set properly, because the device receives authorization for a given timeframe to play a video.

If the date and time settings are wrong, when YouTube sends back an authorization timeframe, it will always be wrong versus your device, so the videos will not play.

You would also notice that when your date and time are incorrectly set, you cannot download from the app store.  For these reasons, it is always important to make sure to reset your time settings if you ever allow the iPod or iPhone to go completely dead.

Happy YouTubing!
