G-Whizz! Pro version 1.2 has been released!

Thanks for all your patience while G-Whizz! version 1.2 has been in review.  For some reason unknown to us, it was in review for almost 3 months and has finally been approved.  Here are the changes in this version:


NEW FEATURES:
✔ Full support for multitasking in iOS 4!
✔ Full Retina Display compatibility for iPhone 4!
✔ Facebook and Twitter mobile apps now included!
✔ Read it Later and Tweet This browser actions!
✔ Application badge (see number of unread events from the home screen)!
✔ Now loads all tabs on startup for quicker browsing (with option to disable this if your internet connection can't handle it)!
✔ In-app Settings tab
✔ Tap to reload tabs

FIXES:
✔ Almost all known remaining crash bugs fixed
✔ Better memory usage
✔ Fixed broken docs links



Also, please note that we've become aware of a bug in this version that causes the ratings prompt to appear every time at startup.  This is more noticeable on iPad then iPhone (because of the iPhone's multitasking).  We've already submitted a fix for this and hope that it will be approved soon.  Please don't take this out on us in the ratings!  :)  Thanks for your continued feedback!

Regards,

  1. Great work Ricky. Keep it up! Is it possible to add the ability to save images to your photo roll from Reader, etc? That would be awesome!!!

  2. I haven't been able to get this to work and have not had much luck finding information about this. Whenever I launch G-Whizz! on my iPad, I get the following error:

    "Operation could not be completed. (WebKitErrorDomain error 101)."

    I'd be interested in where I can find information on how to deal with this.

  4. I am having the same issue as Daniel. I opened a link in reader and that errr came up now every time i open g whiz it tries to reopen the link and the error comes up preventing me from closing the page. If there's anyway of fixing this could you let me know. It's been quite frustrating.
    Thanks

  5. Me too! I have tried exiting the app and even rebooting, but I can't make the error go away.

  6. Yes i am the same its been this way for a couple of weeks now and it's getting to be very frustrating as i was using gwhiz daily

  7. We are working on a fix for this rare issue, but in the meantime you can actually make the window go away if you do the following:
    1. Close the app
    2. Open the app and immediately start tapping rapidly in the upper-right-hand corner where the "Done" button will be
    3. If you do this correctly, you will be able to activate the "Done" button before the page loads (which causes the error) and will then be able to use G-Whizz! again

    Let me know if this works for you! Also, in the future you should use our official Google Group at http://groups.google.com/group/gwhizzapps

    Thanks!

  10. I've tried to edit a Google Doc in it but I was not able to, that was the main reason why i purchased this product. Will you be working on that?

  11. Can i have a multiple Gmail in this app ? i like to have my personal and work email in different tab ? is it possible ?

    ReplyDelete
  12. Still no luck with getting this going. When will this fix be released?
    Also you should probably change your app store link to your google groups page if you don't want people writing there problems on this site.

  13. Hi, I would like to know if there is a way to stay online because after some time it disconnects....

  14. Good app, my questions is how did you get all the hymns in PDF format?

  15. Nice app, but I do run into a problem trying to put in twitter sign on info. It gives me a note saying to download the latest twitter app, but then I click on it, I get an error saying the url can not be displayed, then the app freezes. Only thing I can do to clear it is to delete the app and put it back in.

  16. Hi! I just purshased your iPhone app G-whizz, and I agree about it's being a great app, where a lot of google apps is joined together!

    But nothing is that great, it can't be better...
    I miss having my mails protected with a start up secure code feature!!!

    I have my iPhone as a music source at work, where I need to let other that work in the same team as i, to gain access to the phone, to get a share of one's own music taste...
    And I can easally imagine other in a similar posission!!
    That's something you need start thinking about...
    Sincerely:
    Micael

  17. Where do you set how often G-Whizz! goes out and pulls email?

    Mine doesn't seem to do it until I actually go into the application itself. I don't want to have to go in to retrieve email unless I know that there is something there for me.

    Thanks!

  18. Great app, definitely my favorite on the iOS. Is it possible to add map support from the calendar? When I type an address in the calendar, under where, and save it. When I view the entry from the calendar, there is a map link but when I press the link it just shows my current location, not the address the link should be.
    Keep up the great work.
    Cheers

  19. I can't get this to work. It crashed when I tried to forward a gmail message and hasn't recovered. I would like my money back.

  20. hi! I need to clarify something that may not have understood by us, users and buyers of HD facely: we do not care to share external links. We call "links" all things in our bulletin board reshared on Facebook. To link so mean especially NOTES facebook or pages published by our friends, videos posted by friends, the pictures posted by friends, etc. .. not only external ones. we want to share these things! and ask loudly for a long time! was possible in past versions, not now, why? i'm a blogger and i want to review your apps.. waiting for an answer, goodbye.

  21. Great app! But since updating to the latest release, Facebook launches into a FB mobile and bounces between the old and new page. I know I can choose desktop mode but i can't make that the default. Any help would be great. And this for an iPad

  22. I clicked read it later, completely frozen, can't get it to do anything. I just bought this, what do I do?

    ReplyDelete
  23. Sounds a good idea this app. The problem is: the app crashes, suddenly closing, giving no error messages or any advice.
    I am running this app in my ipad and i've been trying lots of configurations and the problems are not solved anyway...
    Thanks!

  24. What are the differences between the free and paid versions? I've looked everywhere and can't find anything documented.

    ReplyDelete
  25. The free version has ads. That's the only difference.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Cool, thank you very much! I just upgraded to the "Pro" version. :)

  27. Doesn't work with the 4S, tells me my Google email address is invalid, news to me as I receive mail and can log in..What a rip for 2.99

  28. Hi- I'm still unable to see the entire Gmail page. Whether in portrait or landscape mode, the bottom third of the page is cut off and I can't scroll down. That leaves me unable to read an email conversation that has more than two or three segments, not to mention contacts and other bits at the bottom of the page.

  29. Please post your suggestions to our new forum:

    http://gwhizzapps.uservoice.com/forums/134935-google-apps-browser

    This is available from within the app as well. Thanks!

  30. Why are there advertisements pooping up below with games to try etc. The app is great but I do not like these pop ups.

    Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I can't see how many new emails I've got until I go into the app. Once I do this the icon updates, but not before. Anyone know why?

  32. I don't see a way to use private keys for Google.

    http://www.zdnet.co.uk/blogs/communication-breakdown-10000030/google-beefs-up-security-for-gmail-docs-and-google-10024866/

    I'm using that for gmail, gtalk, etc. Your app doesn't show any way to specify a private key.

  33. I would like to see a gmail contacts button.

  34. I think I figured out the error 101 code. For the google voice app via gwhizz. On the Voice tab, under the sign out tab, to the right of "Terms of Service" is "Older Version". I clicked "Older Version" to make a google voice call, at the very bottom where it says "Quick call" I entered the number I wanted to call and it worked. This seems to work more like the desktop version of google voice where it asks you which number you want to call with (google chat, google voice number, home number, etc.). I made my choice and the call went through. After the call it took me back to the "new version" and I can't make a call. So, I guess I will be using the older version from now on. :(

  35. One of the reasons I got this app was because of the ease of using multiple Google email accounts. And it has worked flawlessly for some time now. However, just today, it won't let me refresh on one of my accounts. The other(s) work fine, but this one account tells me Google is offline. I've tried restarting my iPhone 4S, forcibly killing the app to make it reload, but it won't let me update my inbox for this one account. Granted, there's a fair bit of email in it, but still, it's worked great up till now. I read somewhere that you guys suggest to remove and reload the app. I'd do that but it works fine with my other accounts. Plus, even on this account, it's OK on the other folders (sent mail, for example). So there's something WRONG with the app as I've narrowed it down to this one situation dealing with my inbox for this one account! (Also, the person you suggested that solution to reported back that it didn't fix the problem either...)

    So, what's wrong with the app?

  36. I am using the application on my iPad and it's awesome. However, when selecting the GMail desktop mode setting my first account loads fine when opening the application. But, it falls back to mobile mode when switching between accounts. I would like to be able to set desktop mode for my gmail and be able to switch in desktop mode between different accounts and have them load in desktop mode as well.

  37. Hi Ricky,

    It appears that this app has broken on my iPad. It worked fine up until iOS6 release and now is stuck in a loop when opening the app and it checks for new mail. I use this for business email and can't get it now and I'm dead in the water.

  38. Is there a setting for getting the signature above the quoted text in an e-mail reply?

    ReplyDelete
  39. Great app! But it did something bizarre this AM. The G-whizz app's icon disappeared from my iPad 2 completely. I was putting all my various Google apps in a folder and the icon for G-Whizz just vanished.

    Now the only way I can access the app's settings is through the control panel or by typing "go" into the iPad search screen that's left from home.

    Since there's no icon, I couldn't remove it if I wanted to. I don't want to. But I thought you'd want to know about the disappearing icon.

  40. Hi. I love g-whizz but want the next/previous conversation buttons back! It is really tedious to go back to the inbox and tap on the next email to read it. Please give it back!!!
