    That is quite strange as I have used it quite a bit on my 3GS. Have not experienced any crashes yet.

    Hi from Paint FX team... We are not seeing the crash on the iPad. Does it happen if you restart your device in case its running low on memory? What steps led you to the crash?

    Thanks

    Up until the addition of web search functions and blending the app never crashed in all the time I used it. Now it crashes almost every time but ONLY FOR THE WEB SEARCH AND BLENDING FUNCTIONS. I have closed all apps running in the background. Haven't restarted device. Restarting is time consuming and wouldn't want to do it every time I want to use the app.

    I am using an iPhone3GS 16GB with 250 Mb free space and I have used both the web search and blend functions with no crashes at all. I have not had to restart at all.
    I have also used it on my iPad2 with no problems.
    Maybe a restart would be good to finalize the installation process.

    I would agree, but you should do a Hard Reset rather than just a close and open, it clears things out properly and you do NOT lose any data or upset anything at all, trust me... :rog:

    Here's how, if you are unsure:

    1. Close all Apps you have open - tap and hold until they jiggle and then touch the little cross in the top left corner of each, for all those in the Apps Open Bar at the bottom of your screen - NOTE - this is NOT deleting the apps, just closing them down in preparation for the reset;

    2. Press and hold the Power On/Off and Home buttons together until the Apple logo appears in the centre of your screen;

    3. As soon as the Apple logo appears you can release both buttons and that's it, easy peavey, job done!

    And it will not take too long to re-start and everything will be refreshed... :D

    It is generally recommended you do this regularly, depending on how heavy a user you are, but once a week to two weeks would probably be ideal... :alien:

    Yes, I am aware. I should have been more specific. The hard reset had no effect on the crashing problem. I do a hard reset of all devices once a week. :)

    Thanks for the clarification Carol, it was worth asking jic... :D

    I guess it is back to Sprite Labs to see what they suggest now... :barf:

    You might receive a quicker response if you DM them, as this will fire off an e-mail, but please let us know what the resolve was once you are sorted... :rog:

    Asking around I have heard others complain of crashes on IPad 2 and 3. It crashes on both my iPads as well. Several have gotten in touch. I'm fairly sure an update will be along soon. They have always been pretty responsive! I still use the app. All features are ok except BLEND and WEB TEXTURES
