Apple has approved an update to the Star-Telegram’s live news app for iOS, which had stopped working for users who updated to iOS 7.0.3.

The app was crashing or locking up at the splash screen.

Our mobile developer, Verve, has fixed the bug, and the update is now available in the App Store.

If you have enabled automatic updates in iOS 7, our app should have updated for you. Otherwise, please check the Updates tab in the store.

Thank you for your patience, and we appreciate your interest.

Here’s what happened: In iOS 7.0.3, Apple pulled support for a font on which our app relied, and the bug was not discovered until the update went live.

We apologize for the inconvenience.
