    I figured we should just have a single list of these rather than a bunch of separate threads. So far, I've read of two:

    Toy Bot Diaries, sound effects are very loud/distorted
    Zen Pinball, all the graphics except the HUD are just a big white mess

    Any more?

    iTunes won't install Whitepages - it says it is incompatible.

    Oh, and after updating to 2.1, Super Monkey Ball won't work. That may just be my iPhone though, because all of my apps always crash... and I'm already on my 6th iPhone. :x

    I can confirm that Whitepages works with 2.1

    I had the app installed prior to updating to 2.1 and after looking at this thread just launched the app and it works. i searched for myself and found myself. Perhaps it doesn't let you install it but once installed it will work?


    Also, as for Last.fm, with 2.0.2, that app was buggy like a mofo, would crash to homescreen all the time so i had removed it. If it still doesn't work in 2.1, for me, its a wash situation.

    Seems likely. I did not have it (and many others) installed at the time of the 2.1 upgrade in attempt to avoid the dreaded 'no content' problem. After the upgrade I tried putting a lot of the uninstalled apps back and got that error message for Whitepages.

    "Now Playing" doesn't work at all for me now. It crashes to home screen right after showing the splash screen. I have a 8GB 1st Gen iPhone.

    Edit: I uninstalled it and then reinstalled it, and now it seems to be working fine.

    Add What's On to that list. It can't discover TV stations when you enter your zip code.

    Now Playing works fine for me, and the original reporter has edited that report. Please remove Now Playing from your list.

    And thanks for keeping track. :)

    The keyboard doesn't show spontaneously any longer when the login screen appears in SplashID. Tapping in the password field brings it up, though, so there is a simple work-around until it gets revised.

    What's On works fine on my brand new 3G that I just purchased today and restored with my old Classic data. All of my channels are showing and it maintains the time/shows with current time. Seems fine to me.

    To the OP...I would be careful about your list and get more then one report of an App that does not work with the update. There are a lot of bad installs out there and these need to be confirmed before they are plastered all over a forum as not working. This is only considerate of the Dev's that work so hard to design and make a buck off of them. Let's do this right and not jump to conclusions.

    Does your new 3G have the new 2.1 update? Just curious.

    You are correct I will add next to the apps if only one report is present.

    It came with the 2.0.2 version. Purchased at Best Buy and they had a ton of stock from the grand opening so think it is from that event.

    And just so you know, I was not jumping on you for your thread...it is a great idea to consolidate and give both user and Dev one place to go for reports then tons of fruitless posts that will be buried by tomorrow. So keep it up but with a little refinement.

    Jeyo Mobile Extender doesn't seem to work since 2.1 either. Though I'm not sure if it was 2.1. Haven't used it since 2.0.1, so it might have been 2.0.2 that broke it as well.
