FT Apple APP problem, anyone?

Does anyone have problem with their FT iPhone APP? I kept getting this msg to say there is a connection problem between my device and FT. Other APPs works fine and I have tried everything on my phone, even reinstalled the APP....

Anyone experiencing the same?

I'm having trouble with the app for FlyerTalk. For a year now, the app has worked fine but today, it doesn't.

1. I am using an iPad 2 with up to date IOS.
2. I completely turned off iPad and started up again...that didnt work.
3. searched but don't see others having the same problem?
4. All my other apps are working fine.
5. Internet connection is fine with everything else.
6. My name and password are correct as I used them to get into the site via Safari.

Any suggestions what is going on?

Not sure how to post a screen shot of what I am getting but it says ....

There seems to be a connection issue between your device and Flyertalk. Please try again. I've had this for several hours now.

Not the same problem as you but I can't log in using my ft iPhone app as once I enter my information and hit log-in, the little wheel spins for about 3 seconds but the log-in screen is still showing with my log-in creds still in their respective boxes. If I then tap "skip for now", I get the correct next screen but any thread that I tap on causes the app to crash (and the same thing happens if I skip logging in entirely)

Yes, also I have problems with the FT app but it looks differnt. When I start the FT app the starting screen comes up and after 2-3 secondes the App shut down again. Rebooted phone but situation unchanged. All other Appīs work fine.

Thanks, all, for saving me from the usual (over)reaction of multiple deletions and re-installs of the app!

Thanks. I have had this problem since around 6 P.M. EDT last night with my Android. Newest messages seem to update automatically but I get a connection error when I try to open them.

The app starts and then crashes soon thereafter.

This morning the app kept crashing so I re-downloaded it. Now I can't log in and it keeps saying there is a connection issue while I'm clearly good connected with both 3G and wifi. Concerns a 4S with latest iOS.
Rebooting and redownloading doesn't help.
