Problem with Mobile and iOS8

Thu Sep 18, 2014 1:11 pm

I started getting a few reports yesterday regarding an issue with maps in VT Mobile running with iOS 8. After some testing I found the following: the mobile app works as expected when you browse directly to the mobile URL. However, when the page is "added to the homescreen", and accessed via this icon, the map cannot be panned or zoomed - it's as if Safari is treating it as an image under iOS 8. Recreating the app icon, and/or clearing the cache does not correct the issue.

Any ideas?

Thanks.

We're investigating this, seems to be an issue for IOS8 yes.
Thanks for reporting!

I'm afraid we're going to have to label the IOS8 home screen (Webview) as defunct for now :(
Many "strange things" apparently changed in the Apple update..
But we'll of course keep monitoring the issue and try to release a fix if/when it's possible!
