When you change your username, the iPhone app doesn't update it on the button on the right-hand bottom corner. It'd be nice if that changed too.

can you please try logging out of the app and logging back in? this might be a caching issue. let me know if that changes anything -- thanks!

Well, there's a thing! The app now labels the button "Profile" rather than "@oldusername" and that works for me too!

Thanks (if you did something to make that happen: didn't have to log out)
