Mobile authenticator app update for iOS is coming soon

If you use the mobile authenticator app on your iPhone or other Apple device, an update is going to be rolled out soon. This update will give the app full compatibility with iOS 7 and have an appropriate resolution for the iPhone 5 and 5s. The snag here is that when you update, the app may lose track of the fact that it's your authenticator -- and that can lock you out of Blizzard games.

To make sure you don't get locked out, before you upgrade you'll want to write down your restore code: from the app menu, click setup and then continue. You'll have a serial number and a restore code here which you can write down or take a screenshot of for reference. Then, if your new app isn't working, open the menu, click restore, then "I want to perform a restoration," then enter your serial number and restore code. If you haven't already, you can also set up SMS protect, which allows you to remove a broken authenticator -- or broken authenticator app, in this case -- from your account via a text message to your phone, so you can detach the old authenticator and connect a new one.

Anyone who has their iPhone set to automatically update apps should be especially wary, as this means your authenticator app will update as soon as the update appears on iTunes. Make sure you're ready for the update so you don't get locked out!

Review: Healbot now available for your iPad or iPhone

There is no shortage of World of Warcraft applications out there for your iPhone or iPad device. You can check and optimize your gear with Mr. Robot; you can chat and play the auction house with the official Mobile Armory; and you can protect your account from hackers with the Mobile Authenticator.

This week, you can add another app to that list: Healbot, a free, stand-alone iOS game that simulates World of Warcraft boss fights from a healer's perspective. Your party takes damage; it's your job to heal through it. If the boss hits zero before your party does, you win. Just like real life! Well, real life in Azeroth, anyway.

If the name app's name sounds familiar, that's intentional. According to the game's developers, Healbot is "based on the mechanics of the Healbot mod in WoW." But how does this simulation stack up against the real thing? And is it worth your dear, sweet, precious time?

Win EveryAir for your iOS device from WoW Insider


EveryAir is a really cool app for iOS devices that acts as a remote desktop -- but the reason why we like it is because it lets you play World of Warcraft on your iOS device. That's right! Play WoW on your iPad or even your iPhone, with minimal latency. We interviewed the app's creators (dedicated WoW fans themselves) a few months ago, and they were kind enough to give us a lot of coupon codes to get EveryAir for free on the App Store.

And now they're doing it again! WoW Insider is happy to give our readers the chance to win one of 50 copies of EveryAir. And all you have to do is leave a comment on this post before Sunday, Feb. 13 at 11:59 p.m. EST. This contest is valid for readers from the United States and Canada (excluding Quebec). You must be 18 years of age or older to enter. And make sure your email address is up to date, because that's how we'll contact you if you're a winner!
