New Version 1.1 in progress, with background highway-detection support!

I just sent out a preview to beta-testers.

Hi all!
I have *finally* had some time to get back to updates (pesky day job has been getting in the way).
a)  A new iOS version will be submitted this week, with iOS 11 compatibility and other fixes.
b)  I have deployed a new admin tool that will help me more efficiently respond to missing/missed highway requests.  I have already started the processing of updating the database and crediting folks for missed routes.

Meanwhile, I have received and read bug reports and will be incorporating them into the next major releases for both platforms.  Hoping to get started on the no-connectivity support, too.

As always, please let me know your thoughts, suggestions, concerns, etc.

Thanks!
-Amanda

I recently had to delete and reinstall the app on a couple of devices. When I tried to log in on the reinstalled versions using my Facebook credentials, it kept defaulting back to the login page. The problem seemingly resolved itself the next day, however.

Was that by any chance last Thursday/Friday?  The servers behind the app had a serious issue that fortunately, I was able to resolve.

Yep, then definitely the server issue.  Fixed Friday night.

1.1.1 is now available in the Apple App Store!  Please update, especially if you have upgraded your device to iOS 11. (link is in my signature)
I am also caught up on missing-road reports that I had in my queue.  Obviously, that will be an ongoing task...

If I could make a suggestion...

The app seems to be a data hog. I'm not sure how that could be remedied, but I'd think an option to view map only and not satellite view would help in that regard.

Yes, turning off Satellite will be added to the next feature release.  That should reduce the data load quite a bit.

The app does send/receive route data frequently, depending on how fast one is moving, but the data sizes should be relatively small.  There may be ways to optimize that as part of the new feature queuing up requests during poor connectivity, but not yet sure.
