Sorry everyone, 5.4 somehow made it to the AppStore with missing/corrupt icons. The traditional blue dot is not visible, and the user-location button is just an empty blue square. The fix is already waiting for review, so if you have not yet updated please hold off for 5.4

If you have previously downloaded any quads and experienced white tiles at high zoom levels, you will need to delete and redownload the affected

the info bar left or right to change the display.
Unfortunately, a bug was also introduced and just caught. The app may crash when offline and panning outside the cached area. A bug fix is already on the way! Sorry for the inconvenience.

Several unexpected server changes hit us over the last couple of days, but things should be back to normal. Contact us as firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re
seeing anything suspect.

Under iOS5, when the device is low on storage, it may decide to clean out cache data. Unfortunately, per SDK
rules and performance reasons, this includes downloaded maps and databases! Previously, you only had to potentially redownload after a device wipe, but now it could happen at any time!
Needless to say, this caught quite a few apps (and Apple themselves) off guard, so with the upcoming 5.0.1 iOS patch, apps can now mark files that
they do not wish to be opportunistically cleaned.
With iTopoMaps v3.9 and iOS5.0.1, you do not need to worry about maps quietly disappearing.
