iPhone/iOS/iPad app is broken after IOS6 update

Nothing with the Iphone app works. Can't open in maps, send message. Rendered useless after IOS6 update.

Help! I'm dirty!

iOS6 is the Devil

Yes, the iOS6 update has wreaked havoc on most everything it touches, which is a lot.

Our Warmshowers crack team of one (yes, one) volunteer (yes, volunteer) is feverishly working on fixing the Warmshowers app in light of the iOS debacle.

Patience is a virtue, as they used to say.

Use the site from your phone...

It's not that hard to navigate the site from a phone. Someday it will be better, I hope, with a mobile version. But while you're waiting for the new iPhone version, you can get by with using your phone's browser.

I should note that Chris let me try out an interim version which was working fine on iOS6. Once he gets things battened down and Apple approves, you should have the new version.

Ok at my end

I have WS v3.1 on my iPhone 5 with IOS 6. Seems to be functioning normally to me.

It displays the map ok, but when you try to contact a member (or do anything else with a member) it fails.

Thank Christopher Meyer for

Thank Christopher Meyer for me. The app has been wonderful on the road. Also kind of nice just to wing it and sleep wherever! The desert is good for that.
