Hi Guys, any advice i've been using the app for months with no problem, but since updating to OS4 it crashes a lot, coming back from Wales last night I had to restart the app about 10 times, advice appreciated I don't want to go back to my old tomtom.

Tell me about it! Mine won't last 30 minutes - imagine my joys on a round trip drive to Newcastle last week! Worked perfectly with OS3. It's to do with OS4 having stupid ideas about low memory, and pgpsw are looking into it (I hope!!!!!)

basically iOS4 is force closing loads of apps (including the inbuilt apple ones) and giving 'low memory' warnings... it's a lovely feature of iOS4. sadly it's not just CamerAlert that is affected by this.

So generally speaking, iPhone 4 and iOS4 both are proper klunky. I shall wait for your update of CamerAlert to suit iOS4 and hope you've cured it for this app - I don't care about other apps, cos I don't use any!

(Failing that, I've heard that it's possible to get back to OS3 if you put enough effort into it? I did try pressing the Restore button in iTunes which said it would take me back to original, which I fondly hoped would be OS3, but it wasn't, it was just 1 and 1/2 hours of wasted worry and panic to get all my stuff back which the restore dumped! I can imagine quite a market out there for the revert to OS3 method).

iPhone 4 is fine. not had any issues, the crashes are pretty much all on 3GS running iOS4 or 4.0.1

Sorry - I read and slightly believed some anti-hype about iPhone 4!

Cheers thought it must be an OS4 thing, good thing is it only takes seconds to restart app, could be a problem if Cameralert is able to multitask in the future and it's running in the background and you couldn't tell it crashed.

v1.2 is currently being beta tested and will give full iOS4 compatibility. tests so far appear to have resolved the crashing issue you have faced.
