    I just wondered how many people were experiencing situations where apps that had previously worked on the OS's prior to 4 do not work now. Many are games from mainstream developers, one was a language app, but none work now and there are no updates available to fix them.

    I have done every software update released since I got my 3G and never once had apps that would not work thereafter. I consider downloading the new OS to be one of the biggest tech mistakes I've made, as it has rendered a decent number of apps to be inoperable. Some warning that apps might not function would have been acceptable. When MS released Vista (yes, it sucks, I know, don't go there), but at least there were tons of reviews that said that some older software might not work, hence why I did not upgrade from XP.

    What are they doing?????

    I've had quite a few crashes on my 3GS. It seems quite random, but rebooting usually helps. I love the new features of IOS4, but it's definitely less stable than 3.x. I also notice a bit more lag after a while. I can only imagine how (poorly) the 3G performs.

    Words with friends keeps crashing on me, but I'm just using my 3G for it until they update.

    Unfortunately I've tried the rebooting but to no avail. Extremely disappointed and frustrated. Mine does lag more than it did before. As far as I'm concerned, the update might as well have ruined my phone. I was thinking about getting a 3GS but I may wait til the Samsung Galaxy S comes out, likely within a few weeks, and just be done with this. Very disappointed.

    Developers need to "get on the stick" and resubmit iOS4 tested/compatible Apps. There is nothing Apple can do since it's 3ed part Apps are....well 3ed party.

    I couldn't agree more but I just wish we'd all had some idea that their might be issues with apps working on the new OS, which in my experience, had not happened on prior upgrades.

    The AP mobile app kept crashing but i see it has been removed from the app store. So hopefully this means they are fixing it.

    I sent them an email and they said they are working on it.

    I've had a few crashes, no big deal. In one case where a reboot did not help I just deleted the app and downloaded it again. Worked fine then!

    How do you email the app developer? I've not had to do that yet but I need to.

    My best language app was removed from the store, and I wasn't sure if they had just taken it down for some reason or if they were working to fix it. Hoping it's the latter!
