One other thing, though I think this isn't news - I can't find a crash log for comic zeal, after syncing with iTunes once this started happening. It appears it is dying before the crash log is being generated (though I might be looking in the wrong place, or it's labelled in such a way that neither "comic" nor "zeal" appear in the name.
I'm having the exact same problem, seeing the exact same screen shot as above. One extra piece of information, the Comic Zeal ICON on my IPAD desktop has a large yellow exclamation mark (!) instead if the comic Zeal ICON.
I'd be happy to join your beta program to help resolve this. Please send me details. Keep in mind that I've been using my IPAD for a few years now but for intents and purposes I'm still a newbie; about the only thing I use it for is reading comics. So be patient when you ask me for files and such.
I've somehow gotten around the problem. I started the new app and as soon as the first screen appeared I touched settings, which came up. In the background the same bad screen appeared. However, this time the app did not immediately close. Instead, after about 20 seconds, keeping the settings panel up, all the comics and icons started loading. I can now access my comics so for now that's OK.
The only caveat is what used to be rectangles representing the folders are now just straight lines. Is this something new or a bug? I can live with this but if a bug it
Hi Ken & Alexandre,
I tried the current version on a newer device and it works fine.
What type of device and version are you using. I had problems with the first version of the iPad Mini. Could be Apply iOS related.
Have had no problems in trial of the Beta on old device.
Emiliano is busy beavering away to fix this.
Welp, ken's fix didn't work for me - I don't get any response from anything on screen regardless of how furiously I tap. I believe I'm using the beta version (I'm starting it via TestFlight after an invite from Em, and the app has the little yellow dot), I have faith he'll get it solved, just kind of sucks I'm reduced to using my phone to read comics - this is the first time I'm wishing I'd sprung for a 6plus!1
Waiting for the fix. Keep up the great work.
At first , ken's workaround didn't work foe me as david mentioned, but during my many attempts to run the app it actually worked. I got a response from the settings button. Waited for the thumbnails to load it was working fine after that.
I enjoyed it for one more day and it crashed again, I can't seem to identify the trigger that caused the settings button to respond.
Im stuck again.
Well the question is for Emiliano ([email blocked]), not for me. I am just another app customer that suffered the same issue..
Nonetheless I noticed he launched a new app version last week that fixed the importing bugs, so I guess the issue should be gone by now..
Me too - I went to testflight, "ended" being a beta tester for CZ ( :( ) and redownloaded the app from the app store as you'd normally do, and it worked fine.
Not sure if you actually have to leave the beta testing to be able to use the new version, but seeing as it replaced exactly what I had been using, I'd guess you can't run the normal and beta versions of any app.
As it is, it makes sense that Em has discontinued the beta since what he/we were testing was added in to the current stable version.
