Ratings and Reviews
DO NOT DOWNLOAD THE 3.0.2 UPDATE!!!
Iridium is completely irresponsible and needs to pull this update - NOW!!! They need to roll back to a working version of the app. The iOS version will not connect to the email server AT ALL. So if you update, be prepared to lose access to your email.
Iridium, you are stranding your customers who rely on (and pay good money for) this service. You have left people on ocean crossings and in remote locations without the access to email that they rely upon and have left a faulty app up on the App Store for weeks. Shame on you.
Where is your quality control and basic app functionality testing before app releases? Unacceptable performance from Iridium!
3.0.2 screwed me
I was relying on having email access during my Atlantic crossing as I’m awaiting a very important email expected within 2 weeks. But with this update, mail won’t connect. I would urge Iridium to hurry up and release a fix, but we’re already underway. So unless they update within the next hour or so before I lose cell signal, it’s no good. They screwed me. And this update has been out for 2 weeks... how hasn’t this already been addressed?!?!
App does not work for iOS
I installed the Mail & Web app on my iPhone, and it does not work. I have been back and forth between Predict Wind support and Iridium support, and neither has been able to help me. Iridium said an outside app developer controls it, and I don’t know how to contact the outside developer. I’m thinking about returning my newly purchased Iridium Go device.
