I just installed Hootsuite on my new Iphone today and was testing all the functions. Everything is working great - I even find that Hootsuite is more easy to use on the Iphone then on the Laptop. Great piece of software.

I keep hearing this news that you have a new Iphone version out that has support for Facebook and landscape mode which I was very excited to try out but it just is not out there yet!

Why are you and everyone else suggesting that it is out and ready for people to download and try out when it is not?

The version that I see in the Itunes app store is 1.0.1 and I believe that the new version that you are referring to is supposed to be 1.2 or 1.0.2 correct?

@UP: Already has.

It's a one big bug, back to Seesmic.

I think it was over on the Android and Me blog they said Hootsuite is working on the 1.5 version but there's no timeline for when it's going to be rolled out.

I used Hootsuite for my work, and was really excited about this...until I realized that it's not supported by Android 1.5. When will 1.5 get Hootsuite love?

Zoiks! What sort of bugs are you experiencing? Can you share your results at to help us make it better? Most versions are working great but of course there are always unique situations around new software.
