[SOLVED] Is anyone else's iOS app crashing?

I think it's because of the Japanese Alpha testing but when I'm in the middle of a Spanish lesson it crashes.

EDIT: It's fine now, just needed an update :)

I've only had the iOS Ipad Duolingo app for 12 days and just paid for it. But for the last 3 days straight ( July 8th - 10th - 2019 ) the app crashes 20 -50 seconds into any lesson before I can finish it. I have uninstalled the app several times tried restarting the iPad and even signing in and out of the account. I've submitted two bug reports as well and the App is fully updated at 6.25.1

:Update#1: the app will continuously Crash even when Im not touching it at all. Ill just leave it afk on whichever tab and after about a minute it simply "Black Screens" then returns me to my iPad home screen.

:Update#2: App still wont stay open for longer then a minute, Will send another bug report every day until solved. Will ask to get a refund now, if at all possible.

Anybody have any ideas? Thanks 4 12 hours ago

I’m having the same issues and I’m annoyed that I’m paying for plus and unable to use it

AFAIK, the iOS app knows nothing about the Japanese course so why would you think it's to do with the Japanese Alpha test?

You could try deleting the app and reinstalling it or indicate what version of the app you are using if you still need assistance.

The latest iOS update includes the Japanese course for everyone. I found that it crashed during the alpha test when I was doing Portuguese. If it crashes for Duolingo's most popular course too, they have good reason to fix it quickly.

Mine was. I couldn't even get it to stay open long enough to load the current tree, to say nothing of start a lesson, before having the screen blink black.

I deleted and reinstalled the app, and it's ok again, with a most unexpected benefit: no more health!
