Cassandra: Find my iPhone; Find my Facebook (Updated)

By Graham K. Rogers

Following a number of reports on a poor update to its Find my iPhone app by Apple. I took the risk and downloaded this as well as the sister app, Find my Friends.

By the time I saw it on the iTunes App Store a number of sites were reporting that the earlier problem - only working for registered developers - had been fixed.

I can confirm that version 2.0.3 has indeed been fixed, although some users may not like the new Jony Ives-style flatter icon.

The Internet here is its usual creaky self this morning as many of the links I access - news, Apple - are in other countries, so users in Thailand have the added lag that comes from the gateway access here, which is also routed via Singapore in many cases.

While most of the sites I have looked at this morning are fine, Facebook seems to have dropped off the edge of the world, although it does seem to be working on the iPhone.

Update: I checked around and as others were not having the same problem (and my iPhone was handling Facebook OK), I tried the router. Restarting that brought back Facebook, although the Internet was still a little slow with some other sites.
