Update regarding Isosceles+ freeze on launch

Isosceles 2 is here, and it brings a brand new UI to interact with your sketches. Unfortunately, some users have experienced a bug where the app freezes either upon entering the loading screen or just before the loading screen appears. The bug may or may not have been fixed in version 2.0.1, which just went live yesterday. If this sounds familiar, read on to fix the problem.

As far as I can tell, the issue happens to users who use iCloud and whose sketches are few and lightweight. In order to resolve the issue, you’ll need to download a sketch from this site. Then, tap Open In Isosceles+. Finally, double-click the Home button and force quit Isosceles+ by tapping and holding on the icon, then open the app again. This should allow you to enter the app successfully.

Tap here on your device to download the sketch.

I am currently debugging the app, and I’ll try to have an update that actually fixes the issue out as soon as possible. I want to thank the users who’ve contacted me by posting on this blog or emailing me at base12apps@gmail.com, and I apologize that it’s taken this long for me to find a fix. Please let me know in the comments if this fix works for you, and definitely let me know if it does not work for you.

I hope you find version 2.0 a great update to the original, and thanks to everyone for using Isosceles!


One thought on “Update regarding Isosceles+ freeze on launch

  1. I loved the tutorials and planned to use it with my students when trying to investigate the triangle theorems. I then downloaded the full version because I really thought this to be a very helpful app. I regretting this now because the recommended fix above isn’t working. It’s frozen on the recommended sketch I downloaded. I am unable to get back to the tutorial screens or any other feature of the app:(
