Small Bug in Video Listing View

A couple of you have reported that there is a small bug in video listing view of our vlogger apps for users with iPhone 3GS or iPhone 4 devices. The scenario is as follows:

  • You are using the app on WiFi, and you suspend the app by pressing the home button.
  • You leave your WiFi coverage area so the device switches to cellular
  • You resume the app by pressing the app’s icon.
  • You click “Load More” at the bottom of the video listing view to load more videos
  • Nothing happens

We’ve identified the cause of this bug and are working on a fix right now. Please note that pressing the Actions Button, then pressing refresh will re-fetch the videos and resolve the issue. Once refreshed, the “Load More” button will continue to work fine until the scenario above happens again.

The root of the problem is that for performance reasons, we automatically fetch more videos when on WiFi than on Cellular (this has always been the case). During the suspend cycle, if the device switches to Cellular from WiFi, the app is not made aware of this until after the resume cycle has finished. This results in a “fetch” for the incorrect number of videos.

We apologize for the inconveniance and assure you that we’ll get an update ASAP to correct this issue. In the meantime, if you notice that your “Load More” button does not work correctly, simply refresh the listing using the Actions Button.

It’s important to note that the app will still automatically check for new videos when resuming after being suspended for 15 minutes or more. This bug does not affect listings for new videos – it only affects this one scenario when you are using the “Load More” button to view older content.

Of course, keep in mind that you can always check for the latest videos manually by using the Refresh button on the actions menu. Thank you for your patience. Be sure to check the Dev Blog view inside the app or follow us on twitter @GeekUtils for the latest news and updates.
