Codea crashing like crazy on iPad 2

I recently got my first iPad, the New iPad. Codea works like a gem, if not more, on there. But, Codea 1.3.6 on my dad’s iPad 2 is crashing like crazy. It will crash often when I open a document, copy a document to the clipboard, run an app, or even look at the credits. I’ll post the crash logs as soon as possible.

Hi Zoyt,

Mine’s an iPad2, has frozen on me a couple of times - is that what you mean?
Could be a clash with installed apps.

Just for future reference - how do you access the crash logs?

Hope that helps!

I use iPad 2 and it crashes a lot too.
Here is the crash log:

I’m experiencing the same. Codea crashes very often, specially when switching between projects or when touching the play button on the current project. This only started with the latest version, running on iPad 2. It’s very annoying.

Sorry, I should have looked here before:

This bug might be related to parameters and watches. I haven’t had a crash since I started using FULLSCREEN mode in my projects.

Apple quick! … please:

My Codea info screen says it’s 1.4 - How do we get 1.4.1?

It is not yet approved and on the app store yet. When it is approved, I am sure it will show up in your update list in the AppStore app.

Thank you!

Sorry about this. It’s taking a ridiculously long time to approve for such a small fix. We hope they let it through soon.
