OK i've figured it out and boy do i feel like a spesh! it was just some checkboxes i needed to have a play with.
one thing though, when i build the app and transfer it over my home network to my macbook for syncing with my iphone, it doesn't work right on my device. however, when i choose my device to build and run on in xcode, it runs great!.
i think i need to fix this issue so i can upload a copy to cydia.
