    It sounds like a great idea, apart from the problem that you can only redeem the code on the US store with a US account. boo :(

    Yeah that US store only thing is a real PITA, however it is massively easy to open a US account from another country.

    I have the app installed and push turned on. Haven't had it make a peep yet though, but i guess i still have 46 hours to go!!

    iPhone is stuck on apple logo after installing AP push app

    Hey guys, Im a registered developer and like all of you, received the email from Apple in regards to downloading the "push" app from the App store. Well I downloaded the app and now my phone will not reboot. It is suck on the apple logo and I dont know how to continue from here. Ive tried several times rebooting but to no avail. Any help? :confused::confused::confused::confused::confused:

    I got the email when I was away from my computer and tried to redeem the code on my phone through the iTMS app....it said I did it correctly and to go into iTunes when I was at my computer and click "Check for Available Downloads" and it would download properly. The problem is that when I check for any available downloads, iTunes says I have none. I tried re-redeeming the code from the desktop iTunes and it says the code has already been redeemed. I'm stuck in App Store limbo.

    Ironic that using the iPhone to redeem a code for an iPhone app has caused an issue.

    I did the same thing as you. But I haven't gotten to my computer yet. But I went to my last page of apps and I saw the AP news app there. I did redeem it using the iTunes on my phone.

    Can you share in detail what it's like? Does the phone vibrate and a badge pop up on the AP app? When you open the app does it first show the notification etc.

    Thanks!

    You can turn off the parts you don't like. For instance, I only have the badges on.

    Yup, I was thinking the same thing. It's a damn shame too, considering what a steaming pile of **** beta 5 is ... :(
