Bit late for an April fools joke, no?

App doesn't work on my phone (Galaxy S6). I get message "Rockfax has stopped" or "Rockfax keeps stopping". I've tried uninstalling/reinstalling but makes no difference.

Hi Brian. Thanks for reporting this to us. I'm aware there seems to be an issue with some Galaxy S5 and S6 devices crashing at startup. I'll be taking a look at that over next few days. There also appears to be an issue when navigating to the store from the map or some offline maps/overviews. The fix for this will be in tomorrow morning. Cheers, Martin

A lot of software comes out these days half finished, lacking features, full of bugs and then is patched over months and years all whilst people pay for it. Good on you for holding off on release until it was done (I know code is never done but still !). The app is smooth to use, good looking, pretty intuitive and well featured.

Although I wasn't convinced of the necessity of the app, since the guidebook would be "better", after using it I see it has sufficient distinguishing features that it is a useful supplementary tool to a guidebook rather than replicating it directly in digital form.

When (if!) I get back to climbing regularly then I will take out a subscription.

What will happen to the packages I have already purchased when I update the app and the free access ends? Will I still be able to use my old purchases?
