DO NOT UPGRADE TO 6.2!

It seems that the app in the app store will not launch.  I have no idea why - especially as Apple tested and approved it.  I'm looking into at as fast as I can...

Update:  I'm told this happened to several other apps yesterday.  As far as I can tell it is an issue with Apple's FairPlay DRM, or the binary is corrupt in the store.  PDX Bus is not the only app with this issue - Instapaper too -  http://twitter.com/#!/marcoarment ... I have done all I can do:

(1) I updated the text in the store to say "DO NOT DOWNLOAD :-(".  I had to make new pictures to do this as the old ones were not of a high enough resolution.
(2) I filed a support request with Apple, but it's a holiday.
(3) I submitted a new version (just in case this will "kick" Apple into re-submitting it and fixing it).
(4) I tweeted and blogged and panicked a bit, drank lots of tea.

ack, I updated and then when it wouldnt work, uninstalled and went to go re-download and saw the message, lol.

Hope it gets fixed by Apple ASAP. I love this app and use it multiple times a day, so thanks!!

I'm just waiting for Apple to fix it now - there's not much I can do. :-( Very annoying.

I had to uninstall pdxbus because I am OCD and cannot stand the little red numbers telling me there is an update. I hope you get this fixed soon so I can reinstall it as I use this app every day for work.
Thanks for the best transit app!

Can you take it off the list of upgraded apps until the issue is resolved? I have to update my other apps manually because update all would update this one

Hopefully apple fixed it soon. I also use this a ton ad totally appreciate all your hard work.

I got the update before seeing this warning, and the app is working fine for me. Used this morning.

However, I'm running iOS 6 beta. Did some iOS 6-specific code get slipped in there perhaps? If so, that's not a good sign for backwards compatibility.

David - Sorry I cannot take it off the list - this is totally under Apple's control at this point. :-(

Anonymous - it does not contain any iOS6 code - I haven't even downloaded the new SDK for that yet. It seems that some people are getting a good version, you were very lucky. I've still yet to see a good one!

Might not be your fault:
