Hello. Last night I took SSP7 into the field. It was generally stable for a while with regular creation of basic observation log entries. After a couple of hours, and maybe 15 entries, the app started crashing roughly 30% of the time that I invoked the action to create an observation for the selected item.
More specifically, I invoked that action, then the app uncharacteristically appeared to get into an endless waiting loop with the spinning circle, or whatever it is, without progressing to the observation entry screen. After a time (possibly 15 seconds?) I'd typically kill the app and restart it. This happened repeatedly after it started happening, although I could often get 1 or 2 observations logged between occurrences.
A possible clue is that, for where I was, I had no internet. I'm wondering if perhaps it was trying to synchronise something with livesky and waiting for an impossible connection.
Maybe my phone was getting confused about internet availably if, after atmospheric conditions or something else changed at some time in the night, the OS started seeing a very weak 3G or 4G data connection. If that happened then perhaps SS thought internet was available and behaved differently with trying to send a request that could only stall everything for a long time as it failed to go anywhere? That's just a guess from my side without knowledge of the app's internals, though.
I've used SSP6 for about a year, including from that site, and have never seen similar behaviour. It's always been reliably stable until switching to 7. I can't absolutely rule out some kind of coincidence with conditions but unfortunately I didn't think to re-open and try 6 last night.
