Slicehost Pro iPhone App: Connection Failure: Please Check Your Network Connection Or API Host Settings

I downloaded the Slicehost Pro iPhone application a long time ago and didn’t have much time at that point to look into what the issue might be. After not getting the Slicehost iPhone app working immediately I pretty much forgot about it until I needed it recently. This time around I spent more time looking into what the issue might be and as able to come up with a solution fairly regularly. Below I describe the error in detail, how to resolve the error, and another possible error you might see including the resolution if you do see the second error.
