Apple Store: Icon collage includes MileBug

The Apple Store at the Gateway in Salt Lake City presented a collage of various iPhone application icons...and MileBug is included! Can you see it?

Another Izatt app icon is actually the most prominent icon in the whole collage...Fingerspell!

Can you find yours?

Reports: Copy/Paste for Mac users best with Office 2004 or newer

Working with a customer, we determined that copying and pasting the emailed reports will work properly if the user either has Windows Office 2000 or newer, or Mac Office 2004 or newer.

Older versions result in all the data in one column in Excel or a running sentence/paragraph in Word.

How to Restore MileBug data from iTunes

An alert customer sent this in and another customer has already found it to be successful. I have not verified it myself, so I would appreciate feedback and additional guidance to other readers as you use this approach.

For MAC:
1) Just go to the directory, /Users/[username]/Library/Application Support/MobileSync, and you will see a folder called Backup.
2) Enter Time machine, and replace your backup folder with the most recent one from a time when all was well
3) go to your iPhone in iTunes, right click on it and select restore from backup...

For PC:
1) Save off the backup files as a copy somewhere
2) Connect your iPhone to the computer, but don't sync, cancel it if it starts automatically.
3) go to your iPhone in iTunes, right click on it and select restore from backup...
