A catastrophe happend to the update version 1.4 of our Super Trumps card game with cars for iPhone.
Because we’ve been a victim of crack kiddies and a cracked version of our first Super Trumps has circulated in the internet, we’d established an “anti crack” mechanism by the help of Oliver Drobnik. This mechanism detects whether the copy of our app is a regular bought one or a piracy version. If latter the app is automatically changed to a lite version (only 8 instead of 32 playing cards, only 2 instead of 10 minutes to play). So far so good.
When building our last update for Super Trumps an error happend so that the “anti crack” mechanism isn’t working correctly. The app reviewer at Apple has apparently slept and let the faulty version into the App Store.
All the poor customers who have installed the update are now suffering from this faulty version, must gamble the lite version and are nerved by a dialog, which states that the used version is a piracy version.
We apologize to all the updaters and fair customers for that catastrophe. We’ve yet send an adjusted version to Apple for review process and hopefully the update will be published soon. Then all the customers who have yet installed the version 1.4 can replace that faulty version with the correct one, which will be 1.4.1.
We’re very sad about that fact, but at the moment our hands are tied and we can only wait for the moment, version 1.4.1 will reach the App Store … so do 142 customers of our app.
