UPDATED: Please DO NOT update your iPhone to iOS 4 yet

UPDATE (Sat, Jun 19, 2010, 12:30pm CT): Our iPhone app update was just approved! This post is now out of date. The update will be available within the next 24 hours, so you can update to iOS 4 as whenever you want! :)

If you are using the YNAB iPhone app, please do not update your iPhone’s OS to the new OS: iOS 4. (It is available to early adopters now, and will be released officially by Apple on Monday, June 21, 2010.) This OS update breaks the YNAB iPhone app. We submitted a fixed version of the iPhone app to Apple earlier this week, but it won’t be available until Apple approves it, and that could take them a few more minutes or a few more days. (They are notoriously difficult to predict with things like this).

If you do update to iOS 4 before the app update is approved, all of your categories and transactions will be out of order. This means that some categories will be listed under the wrong master categories, making the data appear broken. (This happened because iOS 4 changes the way the phone returns sorted data to our app.)

We will post updates here, in the forums, on Taylor’s Twitter, and on Jesse’s Twitter. Hopefully soon I’ll be able to give you the good news that Apple has approved our app update! In the meantime, please resist updating your iPhone’s OS!

    If we upgrade but use the old fashioned way of entering transactions (w/o the iphone), will it be OK until the update goes through?

      Yes! Most definitely – it’s just the iPhone app that is affected! Sorry for not being clearer!
