What to do if DSDApp crashes on your iPad?
If you experience a crash, let us know on the DSDApp or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
If you can include your iPad model, iOS version, and DSDApp version in your email, this can assist us greatly in solving your problem.
A crash could be the result of your iPad running out of memory or not meeting the system requirements. iOS gives developers a limited amount of RAM to play with. If you have lots of apps running in the background, your iPad will try to terminate those apps to free up RAM. If that’s still not enough, iOS will close DSDApp and return to Springboard. Don’t worry – this isn’t a bug – it’s a method of protection employed by iOS to stop an app from locking up and crashing your whole device. Thanks to DSDApp’s autosave feature, you can just open DSDApp again and keep going where you left off.
If you are experiencing repeated crashes of DSDApp due to memory shortage, try to restart your iPad by following these instructions provided by Apple. Crashes can occur more often on older iPads with less memory. If possible, upgrading to a newer iPad with more memory may mitigate this problem.
Jailbroken devices are more prone to crashing than a standard iOS environment. This can be because you have extra processes and extensions running in the background that take precious resources away from DSDApp. They can also try to add extra functionality to DSDApp and cause all kinds of errors trying to do things that it wasn’t made to do. If this is you, disable all of your extras and turn them on one by one to find the problem.
To minimize the frequency of jettisons, there are a couple of things you can do:
- Try clearing your apps from multitasking (double tapping the Home button, then swiping each app upward to close)
- Every now and then, give your iPad a reboot (hold the Sleep/Wake button for a few seconds).
