New Charts App not opening on iPad

Post by vggoggi » Wed Oct 23, 2019 2:17 pm

I am trying to test the new Charts App for iPad, with a view to a full subscription shortly.
The previous version worked perfectly; I just waited in order to test the new one.

The new version installs and starts fine, but after displaying a blank (actually blue) screen, the iPad reverts to the usual iPad home page (all Apps icons). Double-clicking the button shows that the (blank) Charts page is still open, but it is not reachable. I installed Charts twice, on both my iPads:

iPad mini 3; iPad Air
iOS 12.4.2 (on both; latest updat)
Charts v. 7.0.5 (just downloaded from the AppStore)

Is it a glitch in the App, the AppStore version not updated, or should I scrap both my iPads?
Your advice will be greatly appreciated. Thanks,
Giorgio Goggi

PS: the corresponding App on my iMac works perfectly in Demo mode.

Unfortunately we seem to have an issue with the demo mode at the moment, which you use when you don't have a subscription. We're investigating.

If you have a subscription it will not crash. Compelling reason to buy? :D

Well, either you wait until we find and fix this bug, or you subscribe now for a month and test it right away. If you are really unhappy later we can refund it.
