iPhone app "Download Failed"....
« on: February 02, 2012, 18:42:12 »
For the past two days I cannot get a pocket query to download into the GC iPhone app!
All I get is "Download Failed".
Anyone know what's going on?

Just tried it.  Got the error message on the first attempt, but on all subsequent attempts it worked as expected.  5 PQs downloaded with 1000 caches each.

Version 4.5.9 of the software.  iPhone 4 (non-s).  16 GB

I've got the same version of the app, v4.5.9, on a 3GS iPhone.

I've tried three different PQ's, on different days, and still get 'Download Failed' on every attempt!

Odd.

Tried once again, and it worked! 500 caches downloaded, no trouble.
Still odd.....

Your phone might have been full. I tried to rent a movie and it kept telling me "unable to download". It would have been nice if it had given me a reason :)

That's odd, with no reason give you wouldn't know why it wouldn't download!

The groundspeak forum thread finally got some input from the lackey's in charge:

We had some issues with the API that started last Friday, and then yesterday took one of the API servers out of rotation to fix some issues that it was having. It has been returned to service and appears to be functioning normally now. It is possible that either of these issues may have been the cause of the problems you experienced. Please let us know if you continue to encounter errors
