The ios9 update crippled the app and made it completely unusable so we pulled the app from the store while we get it rebuilt. In the meantime, you can use the mobile optimized site by visiting clearcheckbook.com from safari.

iOS 9 broke something in the framework we're using for the ClearCheckbook app. We tried updating it but apparently xCode/Apple deprecated a lot of stuff that our app's framework relied on and we can't simply issue a 'quick fix'. We'll need to actually rebuild the app which needs to be outsourced and will take some time to do. In the meantime, I'd recommend using the mobile optimized website from the browser on your phone. Simply go to clearcheckbook.com from your phone's browser and you'll have access to the full site, optimized for a smaller screen.

Update Sept 14 @ 12:15am ET: We finished running part one of the tests - creating a full backup of the database in a format that we can easily move to the new server. The total elapsed time was about 20 minutes, which is faster than expected. The next step is the actual test of transferring the data.
We'll be running a test transfer of the ClearCheckbook database from our current server to the new server environment on Monday September 14th at 11pm ET. The site might run a little slower than normal during the time it takes us to do a full backup of our database.
The purpose of this test is to figure out how long the actual data migration from our current server to the new one will take.
We're reaching the final stages of our migration to the new hosting environment and this test is one of the last major steps before we can fully transition over.
