Updating Ultimate or Plus to the New Pro V12

Recommended Posts

Yesterday Apple Developer Support called us and gave a few ideas on how we might be able to solve the update issue where Ultimate and Plus apps are now frozen and can't be updated. It's a fairly complex procedure that uses a feature of apps called the bundle IDs, and while way too complicated to explain here I'll keep everyone posted on our progress.

That is very good news.  I just got off the phone with Apple and they told me there is nothing they could do with credits for the Pro Version.  I explained to them that the consumer was being squeezed by their arbitrary decision to force Waite Group into revamping their app.  I certainly am pleased to hear that they are providing you a work around to the problem.  My iBird Plus still seems to be working, but look forward to the upgrade.  Thanks for your continued good work with iBird.  Merry Xmas to you and your team.

FYI update we have been able to modified our free iBird Lite so that you can upgrade it to any of our country databases. If you have purchased iBird Plus or iBird Ultimate and they are on your device, iBird Lite will recognize them and the North American database will be free to download. From then on we will continue to update iBird Lite and its databases and you will not have to pay for it. I apologize for how long its taken us to get this working but it's been very difficult to get all the pieces working together. We hope to launch in the next week, baring any last minute glitches, so I can't guarantee this right now. 

We will also be updating iBird Plus, Pro and Ultimate so they will have the latest databases and IAP features, so that you can continue to use them. But per Apple's rules Plus and Ultimate will be frozen and not updated in the future. Again iBird Lite will be your solution to free updates in the future. You'll even be able to change its icon.

Thanks for your understanding and patience.
