Tip for 'Talking New Media for iPhone' users

The first, and probably only, mobile application released for this property, Talking New Media for iPhone, has a bug.
Occasionally, for reasons unknown, the news feeds that bring in news to the mobile app will not work and the app will not update. I don't know the reason for this but the solution is easy and definitely works.

To fix this simply delete the app and reinstall – works every time.

The TNM for iPhone app is not exactly a best seller, having been downloaded hundreds of times, rather than thousands. But downloads continue at a pretty steady pace despite the fact that the app was launched a couple of months ago – proving, I suppose, that while app launches are a critical time, users will find your app even weeks later.
