Back in February we gave you a sneak peek at an upcoming service called Groups. We’ve been working incredibly hard to get it ready, and our beta testers have been both patient and invaluable during this long process. We had mentioned that forScore 8.2 and forScore mini 1.1 would include this service, but these updates actually include a whole lot more: they fix a ton of minor bugs and restructure some of our code to comply with Apple’s latest best practices.

Although forScore mini 1.1 was approved last month without any issues, forScore 8.2 has been rejected twice now because of the Groups feature. To be clear, both updates have been thoroughly tested and we’re ready to release them. The hangup is specific to the review process and we don’t believe it would impact our users at all.

This is perhaps the biggest update we’ve ever done, so it’s not surprising that there are some hiccups and we don’t fault Apple at all for wanting to ensure that everything works properly. It does put us in a tricky spot with updates, however, and the end result is that we’ll be releasing forScore mini 1.1 with the new Groups service and forScore 8.2 without it.

We have a few other updates in the works and it no longer feels right to hold those updates back because of this sticking point. We’re going to push ahead and let our customers benefit from the huge amounts of work we’ve done while we sort out these technicalities with Apple. It’s not ideal, but that’s how this process works and we know the end result will be worth it. Thanks for your patience, and—as always—for your support.
