This app is bad...

Whenever I click on my app it immediately crashes. This happened every. Single. Time. I've uninstalled and reinstalled many times and it will work for 5 minutes, then start crashing again. Is there any solution at all for this?

and some that don't agree:

Regardless, if the iOS 6 Maps app doesn't work for you, then it doesn't work. Apple reports that they are working on improving their new Maps service. You can reports problems via these procedures:

Until iOS 6 Maps reaches the level of finesse necessary to be fully usable to you, take a look at some alternatives:
Bing Maps offers a very good maps service with Bird's Eye, a feature similar to Flyover. It's arguably better than Google Maps.

You can use Google Maps by creating a shortcut to the Home Screen with help from the article below.
http://www.ign.com/articles/2012/09/20/how-to-get-google-maps-on-ios-6  
MapQuest also has a very nice app available.

Nokia Maps is another great service that you can add to your Home Screen via a web shortcut.

Waze is another very well reviewed app.

  • TS1702 New i phone maps, is backwards, there is no way you can use this app now. bad idea to launch something without doing more research.

    this app you cannot use now, bad idea before releasing it.

    It takes two sides to agree, I seriously doubt it was ever going to happen. Or they have demanded some outlandish amounts as they are trying to do with Motorola Mobility patents.
    I honestly don't think there is anything wrong with the app, there is a lot wrong with the geobase from TomTom. And I'm sure it will be fixed, just like Google Maps was. Do you remember when it was first released?

    You don't. Apps are permanently tied to the ID used to purchase them. Instead of creating a new ID, change the primary email address on your existing ID.

  • I installed the Adobe Reader on my ipad from the app store. I bought a subscription to transfer pdf files to word, excel. No Russian language in the settings. This is very bad!

    You already posted this five times; and you already have a conversation with Adobe staff going on in the ExportPDF forum.

  • Is this good or bad in terms of battery life?

    So I have a question, my usage is 1 hour, 11 minutes; standby is 13 hours, 29 minutes. This is since the last full charge on my iphone4s and now the battery is at 68%. Is this good or bad, and the thing is when I used certain apps like words with friends even for 2-3mins I actually noticed the battery life going down 2%, and I know that because I have the option for showing the battery percentage switched to on. It's frustating that I'm doing the simplest task like going through settings and the battery is draining so quickly. Does anyone have and suggestions about increasing the battery life?

    The short battery life is an issue of iOS5 that should be fixed with the next updates. ( also hope that Apple would fix it fast)

  • Hi, I downloaded the app for macbook "Lens Flare for Final Cut" and I've struggled a lot to install this app at final cut . Someone could help me ? i´m from Mexico i speak spanish

    Hi, I downloaded the app for macbook "Lens Flare for Final Cut" and I've struggled a lot to install this app at final cut . Someone could help me ? how i can install this app in Final Cut? this app cost me money and not is working to me, i am disappointed sorry if a write bad, i´m from Mexico i speak spanish

    This is a user2user board for FCPX - maybe better you discuss your issues with the makers of that 'plug in'
    Seems for me a  bit 'fishy', isn't it? - other professional plug-in makers deliver with an installer... That advice at AppStore, how to install it, is ... rare:
    How install it ? – click the launch button. Motion 5 will start itself. When Motion is open click save as. Write a generator name - Lens Flare and choose category RGB HOUSE or make it. Click Publish and you are done. If you don’t have Motion 5 look at support site - how to install in FCP.
    How it works ? – In Final Cut Pro you will find in Generators RGB HOUSE group, where will be Lens Flare. Drag this generator above all clips in timeline. When it’s there remember to change blending mode to Screen (in video section). You can adjust color, steak color, glow, intensity, scale - apacity and blur of artifacts, position. Any parameter could be stored as a keyframe, so You can easily animate the flare.
    so, I don't speak Spanish, lets have some fun with translate.google...:
    Cómo instalarlo? - Haga clic en el botón de inicio. Motion 5 comenzará Misma. Cuando el movimiento está abierto clic en Guardar como escribir un generador de nombres -. Resplandor del objetivo y seleccionar categoría RGB CASA o hacerlo. Haga clic en Publicar y ya está. Si usted no tiene el movimiento 5 vistazo a sitio de soporte - cómo instalar en FCP.
    Cómo funciona? - En Final Cut Pro se encuentra en el grupo generador RGB CASA, donde serán destello de lente. Arrastre este generador por encima de todos los clips en la línea de tiempo. Cuando es allí te acuerdas de que cambiar el modo de fusión a la pantalla (en la sección de vídeo). Usted puede ajustar el color, color carne, brillo, intensidad, escala - falta de definición apacidad y artefactos de su posición. Cualquier parámetro podría almacenarse como un fotograma clave, por lo que puede animar fácilmente la antorcha.
    Hope it makes at last a little sense... I don't trust these automatic translators
    (the German translation is ... awesome funny!)
    Finally: it's from 2012! Needs probably an update - contact the dealer!

  • Symbolism 2.6 Does Anyone Have This App?

    I just downloaded this app last week. I saw alot of good reviews so I decided to get this app. This is a game app that is very much like the pc game Alchemy. It is suppose to have online wi-fi capabilities for chat, but as soon as it says I am logged in, I get this message unable to connect to Feint. This app is made by Chewsoft, and used OpenFeint to connect to chat, see scores, ect. My wi-fi is on, and working, and my settings allow for this app to work, so I can't understand why it won't connect.
    Does anyone else have this app?

    So today I went to an official Apple store and did some tests. As you said, the problem was the cord itself. My Iphone it's only two weeks old, so I guess the warranty will carry with a new one. As I need the phone, I decided to buy another cord. In the end, I guess I'll have two cords, which is not such a bad deal.
    Thank you all for you kind answers and help.

  • My ipod 4th gen screen kept jumping this morning. Had to do a restore on it and it is working fine now. However, when I did the restore it did not load the Nike   app that was factory installed on my ipod. I use this app daily. Any idea how to get it back

    My ipod 4th gen screen kept jumping this morning. Had to do a restore to factory conditions and it is working fine now. However, it originally had a factory installed Nike+ app on it and it did not install with the restore. I use this app daily with the running chip to log my workouts. Anyone know how to get this app back from Apple? Loading the Nike app from the app store is not the same thing as you need gps running continually for it to work (as with an iphone). Can't have that with my ipod unless I'm connected to wifi. Help?? Thanks.

    If you go to Settings do you see an entry for the Nike app? There is no way to delete or hide that app?
    Have you tired using the Spotlight search? Maybe you just can't find it.
    Next would be to restore a gain. First from backup then next to factory settings/new iPod.
    The Nike app you can download/install
    Nike+ Running for iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPod touch (3rd generation), iPod touch (4th generation), iPod touch (5th generation) and iPad on the iTunes App Store
    Does work on the iPOd. You just do not get all the information that GPS/cellular connection can get. You will still be able to get distance/footstrikes like the installed app an you do not need the shoe sensor.. It uses the built-in sensors on the iPod

  • Hi when i open my application folder, all the application is shown in trash folder. when i click the application it says this app is in trash first move it out. and when i try to open through finder go it says this file doesn't exist. can some1 plz help?

    hi when i open my application folder, all the application is shown in trash folder. when i click the application it says this app is in trash first move it out. and when i try to open through finder> go it says this file doesn't exist. can some1 plz help? how can i put all my application through application folder?

    Something really odd is going on. In your first screen shot, I noticed that the Applications folder does not have the proper icon displayed in the side bar. Also, in the title bar it lists it as Applications 08-59-29-909.
    Not sure where it's picking up that odd name, unless it's because it's still truly within the Trash folder.
    Try this. In the Finder > Preferences > General > turn on "Always open folders in a new window". (I have a feeling you have the default setting with this off).
    Now, in Finder > Go > move down and open the Applications Folder from there. Now open the folder where you see all your applications that you show in your screen shot, select all, and move them to this true appliactions folder.
    This is what you should properly seeing (but with different apps listed):
    See how the Applications folder has the icon of the letter A shaped with a pencil, ruler & pen.

  • HT1338 I  had the geek squad from bestbuy supposedly install iphoto 11 on my mac but it is not there and when i try to download it it say the app has been download by another user on this machine.  What do i need to do get get this app on my system?

    I  had the geek squad from bestbuy supposedly install iphoto 11 on my mac but it is not there and when i try to download it it say the app has been download by another user on this machine.  What do i need to do get get this app on my system?  If they could not do it right the first time I do not have much faith in their advice.

    Assuming you've done a system wide search for it including the Applications folder and it's not there......
    I think you will need to address this with them - did you pay them for the application? Or was your purchase price to include it? And the question(s) to ask them:
    If the app store states that it has been downloaded, ask them where it is and which Apple ID they used. (the store keeps track of Apple IDs and machine IDs on everything you download).
    I have absolutely no faith in their advice; however, in this case, it's not so much technical advice, but an answer to your questions: you paid for something and it appears not to be there.

  • HT4623 my ipod doesnt let me download any kind of music downloader it keeps on saying this app requires ios something.

    my ipod doesnt let me download any kind of music downloader or any thing like subway surfer games it keeps on saying something like this app needs ios something.

    Then your ipod would need ios something in order to use the apps.
    If your iphone is compatible then update the ios version.  Otherwise, you cannot use the apps.

  • TS1702 My cars 2 app mate app is not working after upgrading from ipad to ipad 2...... synced.... uninstalled and re installed several times as well as wiped ne ipad out and re did the whole proccess several times. how can I get this app working?

    I have installed the cars 2 app mate on a ipad 2 from an ipad 1 synced with itunes account.. all is working except this app. After many times of un installing and re installing aswell as talking to apple tech suport this app is still not working.... its there it just has no function...... how can i get this installed and working, my grandson is autistic and uses this app many hours a day........ it is important for me to get this up and running again for him.......

    (1) So, I found a youtube video showing how to open up my iMac and replace a Disk drive. I opened it. I removed the disk drive. I opened the metal cover of the lid of the disk drive. It was clean and immaculate; so, it destroyed and debunked the dirty drive theory. But, just to make sure I sucked around the optical sensor with a vacuum and gently brushed it with a Q-tip.
    (2) I then watched a you tube video showing how the drive operated (it was a drive supplied with power outside an iMac with a transparent cover unlike the opaque metal cover that we have on our drives). My scientific curiosity started to wonder if somehow the mechanical part (of the electro-mechanical assembly) was locked or jammed. So, I started messing with the arms with the utmost care after watching the video to see if i could move them manually. Yes on some. The main arm that is linked with the drive motor was immovable. The rest I played with a little bit, took great notice in the start of the video to see how the arms looked before inserting a disk. I then put it all back together.
    It works now. My guess is that taking it out and then placing it back in along with the resetting options that others have done was the trick. I believe it is a possibility that the hard drive became locked mechanically in some strange manner after ejecting a DVD in conjunction with the uploading of the new OS. I believe the actual removal, reinstallation, and resetting of the drive put everything back into sync. My computer sits in a climate controlled dust free environment. I knew for a fact that this hard drive was OKAY.

    Can you start Firefox in [[Safe mode]] ?
    You can also do a clean reinstall and download a fresh Firefox copy from http://www.mozilla.com/firefox/all.html and save the file to the desktop.
    Uninstall your current Firefox version and remove the Firefox program folder before installing that copy of the Firefox installer.
    It is important to delete the Firefox program folder to remove all the files and make sure that there are no problems with files that were leftover after uninstalling.
    You can initially skip the step to create a new profile, that may not necessary for this issue.

  • I downloaded a free App called ThaiPad from Bangkok Post newspaper. I downloaded on my PC running Windows 7. The Bangkok Post recommended itunes for downloading. I completed download but it would not open. I am assuming that perhaps this App. was for iPod

    I downloaded a free App. called ThaiPad from Bangkok Post newswpapers. I downloaded on my PC running Windows 7. The Bangkok Post recommended itunes for downloading. I completed the download but it would not open. I assume that this App was for iPad or iPod etc as the Bangkok Post wants to sell content,  after the free content,  via itunes store I assume. Can someone tell me if I can open this in Windows 7 and if so how. Thanks.

    Any app that you download using iTunes is for use only on iPad, iPhone, or iPod Touch, and not on a PC. It's possible they have a separate app for PC, as some companies do, but the one you downloaded via iTunes definitely will not open in Windows 7.
