New iOS App available in the App Store - November 6, 2012

Minimize
Well, that was quick.  Apple has approved the app update and it is now available in the App Store.  You should be getting notified of the update through the Apps app soon.  A few notes about this update:

The name has changed from "Yu-Gi-Oh! Rules Resource" to "Rules Resource for Yu-Gi-Oh!".  This was required by Apple to signify that the app is not officially tied to Yu-Gi-Oh! in any way.

The app no longer includes any data by default.  This was also required by Apple as they will no longer distribute an app that includes copyright-able material without the written permission of the Copyright holder.  So, when you first launch the app, you will notice there isn't any cards listed on the main screen.  To get the card information back:
  1. Press the Setting button
  2. Press "Check for Updates"
  3. Press "Apply Updates"
Currently, there are a little over 8000 updates to apply (the roughly 5000 cards plus an additional 3000 updates that have been released since Apple first rejected the app).  This takes about 6 minutes on the iPhone 5.  The update process has been overhauled to break this up into chucks of 500 updates.  This will keep you informed as it applies all of the updates.

As always, if you have any questions or feedback, don't hesitate to let me know at feature@yugidad.com

New iOS App Update submitted to Apple

Minimize
I just wanted to give everyone a quick update.  A new version of the iOS app has been submitted to Apple for approval.  Hopefully, this version of the app has acceptable work-arounds for the problems Apple had with the database.  It generally take about a week from submitting for Apple to take a look at the app and approve or reject it.  I will post an update here when a decision has been reached.

A new update has been pushed out that includes mostly minor updates (Set numbers updated to fully include all printings for various sets), updated the cards released in the Return of the Duelist Special Edition, and fixed a couple of cards with incorrectly spelled names ("Vortex the Whirldwind" and "Mecklord Emperor Wisel").

iOS App is currently broken

Minimize
A recent update was pushed to the App Store to update the iOS app.  This update included all current cards through "Return of the Duelist" as well as a refresh of the database to decrease its size.  Unfortunately, Apple has rejected this update.  We are working on some possible work-arounds, but do not have a time frame as to when any will be implemented.  We apologize for the inability to update until an update is in place.

The error is happening because the Android version of the app has been successfully updated and there are new updates to apply after the data refresh.  Since Android and iOS share a source for updates, the updates that Android gets are also available to download to iOS.  Since iOS cannot apply those updates successfully, the update fails.

For a few more of the technical details: Part of the database update was to remove columns from the table that are not used in the app.  This doesn't affect the ability to update current records, as updates are done one column at a time.  However, you cannot insert any new records since you are missing columns.  The first insert of the updates currently getting pushed to iOS users happens somewhere around record 370.  So when you hit that record, the update fails and you get a "SVCAU" error.  This was to be expected, since the iOS app has not been updated for the current database version.

Thanks again for your patience.  Check back here for updates on the current status of the iOS app.  When a fix is in place, an update will be posted here to notify everyone.
