Help! The app crashes when I take a photo!

I’ve had a couple of reports of the app crashing on an iPhone 4S when trying to take a photo. This can occasionally happen when the device is low on memory. You should be able to clear it up by restarting the device:

  1. press and hold the sleep/wake button on the top of your device until the red “slide to power off” slider appears
  2. swipe your finger across the slider to turn the device off
  3. press and hold the sleep/wake button again until the Apple logo appears
