Apple's iOS6 changed the way web apps, such as WIF 'n Proof, store data. For web apps started by a Home Screen icon, data is no longer stored in the Safari cache but rather in a 'sandboxed' area on your device. This protects the application and data from accidental deletion, but has made it necessary for me to recode the WIF 'n Proof registration process.
Today I uploaded updates to both WIF 'n Proof and the WIF 'n Proof Registration app. There are two major changes in the registration process.
- 1) This change applies to iOS6 users only. It is necessary for the Registration app to also start from a Home Screen icon so it does not store your registration in the Safari cache. If you need to re-register after updating to iOS6, you must start the registration app by tapping on the 'Re-Register' button. This is equivalent to starting from a Home Screen icon.
- 2) This change applies to all users. The registration process now includes applying for a WIF 'n Proof 'Cloud' account. Provide a password during the registration process and the WIF 'n Proof 'Cloud' account will be set up and ready for your registration backup as soon as you are registered.
