Hi all,

First, thanks in advance for reading this and helping me out (if you can!). I'm a freelancer and I've been working on an app for a local company for some time. The app is to pull data from an online widget and display the data on the user's device. The widget receives data via an xml feed, and the app uses the web address of the widget to pull the data.

All of a sudden I am getting 'the server is unavailable' errors when I test the app in the iphone simulator (and/or on a device). Now, I know the server is not down. When I open up the widget page in my browser, and then go back to the simulator, the data all displays properly.

Obviously I don't want the end user to have to open up the web page of the widget every time they use the app. What am I doing wrong/missing?

Thanks again for the help.
