iOS5 crash


UPDATE: (10/28/11):  Version 2.1.6 is now available from iTunes.  v2.1.6 addresses all of the issues listed below.  Thank you for your patience during the approval process!

Entering values into the Advanced Function ([Stairs], [CmpMtr], [Balster], [Diag] and [Hip/V]) cause BuildCalc to crash on iOS5 updated devices. The fix has been found and will be submitted to Apple for review ASAP. Updates will be posted as they are available.

UPDATE (8AM EDT, 10/16/11): There are two issues with version 2.1.4

  • Old iPod touch: buttons missing from top row of buttons
  • iPhone2G: crash at launch (this may rather be an issue with 3.x versions of iOS).
A solution to the iPod issue has been found.  Currently, I am trying to replicate the iPhone2G issue.

UPDATE (5PM EDT, 10/15/11): Apple comes through! I am guessing that Apple anticipated a rash of issues with apps on iOS5 because their review of BuildCalc version 2.1.4 was in near record time! It is now available as a free update from the App Store. You can find upgrade instructions here.

UPDATE (2PM EDT, 10/13/11): First, my apologies for any trouble iOS5 may be causing you. Now that I have had a chance to get my hands on it, I like what I see but it appears that a lot of apps (including BuildCalc) were not ready for the transition. Because of this, I won’t be updating iOS on my iPhone for a few weeks (until more apps are updated).

As for BuildCalc, a new binary has been submitted to Apple for review. It has been tested against all known issues on an iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch (each running different versions of iOS). Given the number of apps that likely will be submitted to Apple this week, I am not sure how long it will take for Apple to complete the review. I’ll keep posting here as I learn more.
