Re: ipad/iphone fios app "not available in us itunes store&

I read on the forum somewhere that some people were having authentication issues with the app, My guess is they pulled it until they work out the bugs. That happened previously before they launched the live tv viewing feature.


All of Verizon apps were pulled from the app-store. I was having so many problems starting the live streaming app (Verizon fios mobile) so I tried to see comments in ratings to find a possible cause. My router setup is not standard, I run 1 extra bridged AP router in the house, and I recently disabled UPnP. That wan't it. Found no results in the AppStore search at first, then checked each of fios apps linked from their site. None are available. I am guessing their capacity planning was a bit on a conservative side, they underestimated the demand for this service.

Now I wish I bought that Slingshot setup BEFORE this service became available for "free". Now it is harder to justify the purchase, but if version persists with these outages, it may become necessary.

Looks like the service has been restored. The Mobile app is back up in AppStore.
