My iPhone 4 has several apps that I use location services on. But one set of 2 apps from the same developer will not show my location. They are enabled in Location Services, and show a grey arrow to show they have requested location, but will not provide a location on their maps. I have a GPS Status app which reports at the correct location, as does google maps etc.

The apps have been removed and re-installed. reboots of the hardware have happened. I'm wondering if there is a hardware fault, as the developer of the app reports no similar problems with iPhone users.

PS: iPhone 4 A1332 version 6.1.3 (10B329)

Which apps do show the problem? – patrix Jul 14 '13 at 8:17

Very strange, by any chance do you have restrictions on under general settings? - would have left this as a comment but the arbitrary restriction due to "reputation" means I have to leave it as an answer or not try to help at all. Well designed.
