Where To? 3.0.5 is now available for download on the App Store.
Two updates in less than 2 weeks? Are you crazy?
Let me explain. iPhone developers have access to crash reports provided by users via Apple’s backend system iTunes Connect. The number of crash reports shown for Where To? has always been minimal (around 1-3 reports per update). Nevertheless, in our last update we integrated the excellent
CrashReporter framework QuincyKit by Andreas Linde & Landon Fuller. Much to our surprise we received quite a lot of reports (around 200 individual crashes for 20 different issues up until now). We compared this to the number of crashes reported by iTunes Connect: Zero.
It was really mind-blowing, especially since the issues found had been in Where To? since ages. Fortunately, we were able to fix the majority of issues and so we didn’t want to wait any longer to rollout these stability fixes. For any developer with a zero-crash-tolerance, I really recommend taking a look at the CrashReporter framework. Don’t be fooled by the small number of crashes shown in iTunes Connect!
