THANKS! I guess when I downloaded the first time, I clicked on "Get Started" and didn't notice the option at the bottom for current members. I deleted it from my phone, downloaded again & it is working fine now!
When a user downloads the app for the first time, they have 3 options: 1) Click the "Current Members" button and login with SP username and password. (This is the one you want to choose.) 2) Click the "Get Started" button. This will take the user through the setup process (height, current weight, etc). At the end, the user comes to a screen with 2 buttons, "Create Account" and "Use App Without Creating SparkPeople.com Account." a) Click the "Create Account" button. This will have the user enter a username, password and email address to register the normal way. b) Click the Use App Without Creating SparkPeople.com Account" button. This will automatically create a username and password for the user.
Options 1 and 2a have a "Logout" button in the app. Option 2b has a "Connect to SparkPeople.com" button which allows the user to "create" a username and password with email address so they can use that to log into the iPhone app and now SP.com
None of these options allow for linking accounts with an existing account. If a user starts the app with option 2b, they will have to uninstall and reinstall the app in order to change the account. The other two options, 1 and 2a, can just click the "Logout" button under More->Settings if they want to change accounts--no need to uninstall/reinstall.
I hope that helps!
