The blockchain.info iPhone app sends transactions without fees. Even though there is a fee setting on the blockchain.info wallet web page and I have it set to "generous" it does not seem to effect the iPhone app and the iPhone app itself has no setting!

This is really annoying and makes the blockchain.info app pretty much useless. Today I went to sell some bitcoins and after waiting a couple of hours for the transaction to be confirmed, it still hadn't been and eventually I just had to leave minus my coins but with no money. Hopefully the transaction will get confirmed by tomorrow and I'll be able to get the money from the buyer then.

Blockchain.info estimates a 20 hour confirmation time for it's transaction! This is not acceptable!

This is not the first time this has happened. I'm going to have to start carrying around a laptop now everytime I need to spend some bitcoins!

To put the same thing more politely, since Apple has banned bitcoin wallet apps on iOS, Ben is afraid to update the blockchain app as it would trigger a rereview and very likely result in it being entirely removed from the store. When the app was first written feeless operation was often OK, not so much these days.

Much though I like having a wallet on iOS, I think it may be time to pull the plug on this app. It's been impossible to keep it up to date with changes in the network and is dying, giving people a bad impression of Bitcoin along the way.

What was the size of the TX? Were there any small (less then .01) inputs/outputs?

The fact that Apple had basically banned Bitcoin related apps from the iTunes store has prevented Blockchain.info from updating their app.
