WootWatch Fix/Update Coming Soon

Available In: App Store       Price: Free  

WootWatchDuring a recent Woot-Off on Woot.com my WootWatch app stopped working. I contacted the developer and got the following response:

Dear WootWatch user,

Yes, the app stopped working on Thursday morning. This started when woot.com made a change to their page that broke WootWatch’s processing logic. In my defense, the change they made was technically a coding error on their part (they inserted a non-permitted XML character), but although that makes me feel better, it doesn’t help you get your daily Woot fix.

I’ve submitted a patch to the App Store that would work around this problem. You’ll see it as version 1.4.2.1, and it will be available for download as soon as Apple approves the submission.

Sorry for the inconvenience!

PS: I can’t believe they changed their code in the middle of a Woot-Off. Yikes!

Great News! We’ll let you know when the update is released. If you’ve never heard of Woot or WootWatch, check out this review: WootWatch for Today’s Woot-Off!
