Apologies for it being out of context but someone was asking about iOS 14.
I have iPadOS 14 installed and the NowTV app crashes on launch continually.
I'll try it on iOS 14 and tvOS 14 and report back.
Note this would be the regular App Store version as I'm not part of the NowTV beta.
Im sure you understand this very clearly...
But to be clear to anyone reading your comment:
iOS14 is a DEVELOPER BETA right now. a developer beta on version 1. Only developers should have access to it and is and therefore @ReadyPlayer2 must be a registered developer to be using iOS14 right now.
It is clearly understood that many existing apps can and WILL crash and not work on early developer betas. This is normal behaviour and is not at all something to be alarmed about or even surprised about. It happens every year on the early beta that many apps are not compatible - this is why they have developer betas to allow the app developers to download the software, then make any tweaks to their apps to fix the crashes.
Even when it comes into public beta, you'll still find many such problems.
Rest assured that by the time the final version is released to all, there will be no issues.
So, that being said... anyone care to guess whats going to happen when trying the current aged AppleTV app on beta 1 of TVOS14? 🙂
Yes, apologies, I assumed all that was a given. I am a registered Apple developer and this is Developer Beta 1 that I'm talking about.
Not surprisingly, the NowTV app also crashes on iOS 14, however it does work perfectly well on tvOS 14.
@ReadyPlayer2 I’m also an app developer. I was just saving you the trouble of checking the iOS version as you said you’d try it later.
It’s kind of a shame the current TvOS version works with tvOS 14 as an incompatibility would have forced them to release a new version of the app.
@MrZippy It would force them to release a new build, whether they just fix the problem in the old version, or release the new version is obviously up to them. I think it would be crazy to fix the old version, but this is moot as it seems to work anyway.
Personally, I don’t yet see the new version as being much better than the old one. The addition of watch next, and continue watching features is offset by the much worse interface for scrubbing through episodes, and the loss of compatibility with the iOS remote app.
