NOTE: This promo is over but all apps are still available at their normal prices.
To apologize for the downtime our apps suffered as a result of the iOS 6 release we are putting up a temporary promo. At the moment we’re only going to make it last a day, but if enough people tweet about and share it we might think of making the promo last a day longer.

Our line of Phix apps for iOS has been offline for a few days now because iOS6 caused all of them to crash upon opening an image. (Not our fault, Apple screwed up more things than just the maps app) But we are happy to announce that at least one of them, MonoPhix has returned to the App Store with a fix for the crash and some other improvements.
MonoPhix 3.3 has a slightly altered interface to host more sharing options (coming in the future) and to reduce the amount of clutter in the task bar. We’ve also already added one sharing option, share to Muzy, but it seems to be malfunctioning at the moment. This could be because the sharing API isn’t yet activated at Muzy’s end. And of course the crash has been fixed along with some memory usage tweaks.
We updated and submitted MonoPhix HD a few days ago and MonoPhix Lite for iPhone today. We are also working to bring FlashPhix and FlashPhix lite to version 3.0 with a new interface. This will fix the iOS6 crash on these apps and will bring them back to the App Store as well.
Tomorrow iOS 6 will be released and a lot of iPhone 5 devices with the new iOS version are already shipping. This isn’t a blessing for everyone. Due to some unannounced changes Apple decided to make to certain components of iOS, some of our apps will crash after opening an image from the camera roll or taking a new one. We addressed this issue a while ago in a bug report sent to Apple and tried to get help from the iOS support engineers, but they weren’t willing to help because the issue was caused by at the time prerelease software, so we had to search for a fix ourselves.
We managed to fix this issue and we will take MonoPhix, MonoPhix HD, FlashPhix and GrayPhix out of the App Store starting tomorrow until a fix is released. Everyone affected will get an update within a few weeks after Apple decides to approve our fix.
We apologize for any inconvenience and advise everyone not to update to iOS6 just yet as it’s still in a state which we can only describe as buggy.
