Yikes so some people who have the latest update suddenly couldn't open the app. The problem was very difficult to replicate.....as it happens in a very specific circumstance, so most people never had an issue.
Its people who first opened the app without internet connection (wifi or 3g). We are submitting the fix right away (no, it won't contain the next update, but it is 80 percent completed, so it will be coming soon after).
You can fix it by doing the following, keep in mind you will need internet access for this to work (either wifi or 3g).
1. delete the app
2. connect to the internet (wifi or 3g)
3. reinstall the app (just buy it again in the app store, it will not charge you twice if you use the same account)
4. run the app, go through the feint screens, and keep the app open for a few seconds (so it updates the news file from the internet)
5. close and open it again. you should see a news item that talks about doodle jump, if you dont see it, open and close it again.
Once you see the doodle jump news icon, its fixed. you dont have to have it connected to the internet anymore.
some things to keep in mind…
Deleting the app will erase your achievements and highscores, if you want to keep this data, wait for the fix we will be submitting tomorrow. We will try and get the fix out as quick as we can (sometimes apple pushes fixes through quicker than normal) but it may take up to 1 week. If you dont have a wireless network at home, you can probably go to a coffee shop, library, school, or McDonalds. Many of these places have free wifi.
If you delete your app, you may have to activate your skin packs again, it will not charge you twice if you use the same account.
The reason many people don't see it, is that they probably updated the app over an internet connection and therefore opened it with an active internet connection.
Sorry about that!
