The Paper app on my iOS device is crashing, what can I do?

Explorer | Level 4

Hi, All,

When I try to open "Paper" on my iphone XR, it won't open all.  Just flashes and then shuts down.  I've closed app, restarted phone.  No love.  

Any suggestions?  Thanks!

By the way, I also uninstalled/reinstalled.  No luck.

Hey @JZ30307, thanks for reaching out to us here!

Can you just confirm for me which version of the Paper app you have installed on your mobile?

Also, which OS version is your mobile running? Are there any pending updates at all?

Let me know what you find and we'll go from there!

Hi, Daphne,

The app won't stay open long enough for me to check the version, but I assume it is the latest since I have "automatic updates" switched on.

IOS 13.3 is running, and there are no pending updates.

Thanks

Hey peeps, I hope you're all well today!

I've just merged these topics so I can look into this with you all.

@JZ30307, you should be able to see the app version through your Settings on your iPhone. From the "General" option, you can select "iPhone storage" and choose the Paper app.

Also, @ernstMreicher58 and @Chaseforfeit, would you mind trying to reinstall the Paper app to see if that helps?

If not, can you let me know the Paper app version along with the OS version your devices are running?

Thanks everyone!

Under “IPhone storage”, I see every app on my phone EXCEPT Paper. Paper is not listed.

I am having the same issue "flash and crash" .  I have Paper version 172.2 and my iPhone is running 13.3.  Interesting in that Paper is working OK on my wife's iPhone.
