BARD app stopped opening

iOS and iPadOS

I'm running iOS 14.5.1 on an iPhone 10R. When I double tap on the BARD icon, the app will not open but instead defaults back to my "Reading" folder where I have BARD and other library type apps. All other apps seem to open. Is anyone else having this problem or is it a software issue on my phone? Thanks.

So, using an iPhone 12 Pro Max, iOS 14.5.1, I can't reproduce this with the most up to date build of BardMobile.

Hi there. I just had BARD open looking @ the latest additions of books, and I could get it to open fine.

I am however, having what I believe to be a similar issue. In the App Store, sometimes when I try to hit the get button on some free apps, it says it's dimmed. IT's been like this for a few days now.

no problem here neither from App Store or from Bard. on iOS 14.5.1 on the iPhone 12 Pro and no issue at all what so ever. both apps are working like they're suppose to.

You might need to remove app and install it. Using 12 pro and iOS 14.5.1. I am listening to a an audiobook from it and no issues.

I was told not to uninstall the app and to call my BARD person at my state talking book library for instructions. Uninstalling the app will cause a new actuation and we only get so many devices per year. I’d call or email your BARD people.
