Grand,

I installed without problems on IOS 11.3 while connected to my local wifi network. All looked good. Then I disconnected from my wifi (turned off the iPhone wifi) and force closed WC RCP. Launched WC RCP again to see how reports loaded when not connected to wifi. The splash screen appeared and immediately disappeared and WC RCP app closed. I've tried many times to re-launch WC  RCP with the same result. I then deleted WC RCP and re-installed, again without problems when connected to wifi. I re-installed my server address and WC RCP connected, albeit slowly due to the low cell strength. Reports loaded fine, but of course were now the default reports.

Other than the glitch, all looks good.

~Paul

Dear Grand, Paul, and WeatherCat iOS Beta testers,

What's New in WeatherCatRCP 1.0 (180405)

The update of the Report screen has been changed to eliminate an intermittent and infrequent crash bug.

. . . .

What To Test

Test the Reports.

Update finally went smoothly in TestFlight.  Our WiFi access point died recently, perhaps the previous problems were due to the hardware suffering a slow death.

I checked all my reports and all work as expected.

Thanks Grand for your hard work on this! . . .   [tup]

Cheers, Edouard  [cheers1]
