Re: Updated app on iPad not working

There’s no “can’t”. A holding action would be to take the old app and the new app, and bundle them together with a switch that tests your iPad OS version, and routes you to one or the other.

 

This would make the app just over twice as big, but it’s the ‘in extremis’ fix.

 

Though I think NowTV will work very hard to fix it properly, long before any court date could be set for any sort of fantasy legal action over this.

Re: Updated app on iPad not working

I have heard nothing. I've emailed again and it is silence.

 

Really dreadful customer service.

 

Anyone have any updates?

Re: Updated app on iPad not working

I posted this https://community.nowtv.com/t5/Mobile/iPod-5-iOS-9-3-5-fails-to-play/m-p/513841#M3719 this morning - I didn't have time to read all this thread as it was titled "iPad" but now reading it I would say that my issue is the same

Re: Updated app on iPad not working

@eserim 

 

Yes, it would seem that the updated iPad app only works on iPadOS 13, when the published information says it should work on any iOS from 9 onwards.

 

This may not be trivial to fix, but even if it is, the testing will be doubly stringent this time. So probably not a thing that can be rolled out in a few days 😥


But those who can upgrade to iPadOS 13 might like to consider doing so to overcome this issue right now, rather than waiting for the proper fix.

 

Disclaimer: I’m not an employee of NowTV, I’m just a customer like you, so I have no idea what progress is being made on this issue, and the first I know it is fixed will likely be when you know. And I’m not making any special pleading for NowTV here; just basing this on my own experience as a software developer, albeit in an unrelated feld.

Re: Updated app on iPad not working

Ive just downloaded the update and everything appears to be working. Shame they don't do better release notes on the App Store

 

i hadn't heard anything from now tv since customer services escalated it. Pretty poor comms.

Re: Updated app on iPad not working

I have an iPad 4 iOS 10.3.4. the app is now finally working. I deleted the previous app and downloaded again.

 

The customer service has been dreadful. After initial contact a few weeks ago and despite further emails from me I have heard nothing.

 

Good luck all.

Re: Updated app on iPad not working

They finally released a fix on 9dec.  Update available in the App Store updates. Already cancelled but subscription not yet expired so it works on ipad 2 iOS 9 devices again.
