Re: Footbook App

What's happening is that the control has been disabled. However the app NEVER disables it. I can't think of any way it could be disabled, other than a failure of a memory bit in the hardware. Try deleting the app entirely (Hold down on the app until it shakes, choose "Delete". Then download it again from the App Store. You won't be charged again. Instead of a price you'll see a cloud with an arrow coming out of it. Tap that to reinstall. Then try it again. If everything works correctly it's probably a sign of a memory failure within the device. That may cause unexpected behavior down the road. If your device is still within warranty you might take it to an Apple Store and ask to have diagnostics run on it. If a failure is detected they should replace it. If it's out of warranty you can still do that, but they won't replace it if a problem is found. It may also be that a memory cell has changed from 1 to 0. This is VERY rare, but can happen from something as nebulous as cosmic rays. In that case downloading again will fix it and life will go on.
