    Thumbs up iStat for iPhone 1.1 released!

    Here's what's new:
    - Removed Free Memory function (here’s why).
    - Added battery stats for iPhone/iPod touch.
    - Added processes list for iPhone/iPod touch.
    - Added the ability to sort the server list by name or auto.
    - Added the ability to disable Screen lock.
    - The email ID/Mac/both buttons now copy to the clipboard instead.
    - Updated icon.
    - Bug fixes.

    Battery stats are the biggest new feature. We're now as good as any of the battery apps on the store.

    The newer version with battery stats suits me fine (in fact, is excellent) - I can now do without the free memory option!

    Fantastic! Thanks very much. Updated as soon as I could.

    Love the battery info, I've always wanted this!

    If you're not seeing the iStat 1.1 update yet, you can delete the app then redownload. You'll lose your settings though. This works for any app that's been approved, but the update isn't showing yet.

    There's a small bug in 1.1: the ticks in the settings pages don't display properly. They still function though. We'll fix this in version 1.2, due soon.

    Is iStat the best util of its kind? If not, what's it missing?

    w00t!

    I like it. Haven't used the 'free memory' button, so I'm not missing it!

    Plus I get the *warm fuzzies* from supporting an aussie software developer

    We're getting some bad reviews on the US iTunes store due to Free Memory being removed. GRRR. Wish we didn't have to take features away from users.

    That grates my gears a bit.. Apple requested you remove it, and Apple moderate the reviews, they should have a system to inform the reviewers as well..

    I really like the battery info, question though, the battery info in iStat is usually 2% less than the system battery info.. Is that normal??

    We're using a published API call and simply reporting what it tells us.

    Yeah it really suxors.... I use Free Memory all the time while I am testing builds on my devices! Am not wanting to update to 1.1 cause of this.

    Why don't you inform your users it's because of apple request?
    So your buyers understand it was not a feature you wanted removed?

    As for me, I can't decide whether to upgrade, the battery status is awesome ( even if I got 3gs battery indicator )

    I just noticed this, although I'm pretty sure it has nothing to do with iStat 1.1:

    On my istat server, it shows my iPhone's name as "Buffy's iPhone". Now this is fucking awkward, but my iPhone isn't even named Buffy, it's called "Neil's iPhone". Any idea what's going on? SMG gives me the shits.

    Also, the ticks in the settings thing don't disappear when you deselect them (although it works in terms of functionalities.)

    We've posted on Twitter, added comments on iTunes, placed a note on all relevant web pages and have created a specific help page for it. Not sure there's much else we can do.

    incanspyder: Sorry about those. Both will be fixed in 1.2, due soonish.

    understanding that it was not the developers fault and wanting what you paid for as a consumer are two different things. Sucks for Bjango but its no more the consumers fault then it is Bjangos fault and unfortunately bottom line it was Bjangos decision to remove the feature in an update vs republishing the application with the possibility of a limited time discount price.

    Don't be mad at the consumer for wanting what they paid for... at least that my opinion as a consumer who purchased istat for the Free Memory function.

    This is true.

    We actually asked our users via Twitter for what they'd prefer and most said to update iStat, rather than submit a new app. In the end, this was the option that would make us less money, but keep more users happy.

    We were going to get some negative feedback no matter which path we took, but I still stand by the decision we made. iStat still has a great future without the feature.
