Update of Sametime app for iOS…and the story with .0 versions

Version 9.0.0 of Sametime for iOS is available at iTunes.

It promises a few very interesting features:

  • Softphone (on supported servers)
  • A brand new user interface on the iPad (note: looks very “fresh”)
  • Point-to-point audio on phones (on supported servers)
  • Point-to-point audio and video for iPads (on supported servers)
  • Server-side policy updates
  • Runs on iOS 7 (note: this is definitely not new)

Unfortunately, the app crashes as soon as I open a Sametime contact to initiate a chat (tested on iPhone 5S, iPhone 5 and iPad).

Maybe it has something to do with the combination of the Sametime app and Sametime Proxy version… let’s see what IBM says.

…and I always say “Do not use .0 versions or wait at least a few days” ;-)
