The developers who created the iPhone app failed to change the URL from 
the under development IP address page to the live domain name and it got 
submitted to Apple and is out there.  Not my problem but is my client. 

On a test website I tried setting up a simple redirection in the 
.htaccess but didn't help, maybe because I don't understand this stuff.  
Into the .htaccess I  added various flavors of:

RewriteRule http://the_live_domain.com [R=301,L]

RewriteCond ^174.121$
RewriteRule $  http://the_live_domain.com [R=301,L]

This latter is a total failure.
