I have nudged mtgox again on iOS support and received nothing more helpful than previous posters.
I raised a ticket with mtgox
"Hi, I understand that iOS 5 is no longer supported, however the current release is iOS 6.1.1. Furthermore I understand that mtgox have been responsible for this application since early 2012 and I have seen reports since mid last year about this same freezing problem. Do MTGOX actually intend any development or is iOS simply a shelved project?
And received the following response from Marcus in mtgox support.
Thank you for your email. We are sorry to inform you that our app does not work with iOS 5. We are currently working on developing a new app that will work with new Iphone models and once that is done we will make an announcement. However we do not have a ETA on this.
If you have any further enquiries, please do not hesitate to contact Mt.Gox Support
To which I left the following feedback
"This ticket has been rated as Bad, I'm unsatisfied
With the following comment:
simply marked ticket as resolved without actually attempting to provide any information. MTGOX Application has been broken for a long time now and there is no information forthcoming. If the application is abandoned by mtgox then would appreciate knowing this so iOS users can move on. https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=31710.60
has a lot of people experiencing the same problem and been told it will get fixed but this is going back to mid last year."
Don't hold your breath :-(
