Problems with searching in BlindSquare

iOS & iPadOS

Hi everyone. Sometimes BlindSquare's search screen is closing immediatelly after I open it. But the app is not crashing and just returning in main screen. I have to reload BlindSquare to force it to work normal. I use iOS 8.1.1 on iPhone 5S. Does someone observe this probllem? Thanks.

When location is not known, search is not possible. It is due to fact that to be able to sort results based on distance, we need to know your location. When this happens, please shake to test if location is known or not.

I remember once noticing some situation, when search did close, when location was actually known. If this is what you notice, then I need to study code or find a way to reproduce.

Best, Ilkka

I do not mean to distract from the purpose of this thread, i.e. helping Aliya resolve issues with searching in Blind Square, but I would like to applaude both AppleVis and Ilkka from Blind Square.
How fantastic that this forum exists to bring the people who use the Apps directly in contact with the Dev's who build them. Thank you Blind Square for participating *Love your App, by the way* and thank you AppleVis!
Now, let normal programming resume.

Hi everyone!
I also useing blind square as well in thailand.
It was working exclusively in Bangkok.
Since not so many people useing that kind of app much in here.
I will try to share blind square with the people in here as well
Maybe will give them like training or something.
I also have some search problem like previous post as well actually.
But when I relaunch the application again the problem seem to be gone though.
By the way great job
for developer that quite active to answer the question.

Hello, Ilkka! Firstly, thanks too much for creating and developing this very useful and very nice App. it's really helping me many times.
And as for searching in BlindSquare, you are right. the problem seems to be matched with my location is known or not. I did tests some times and always when searching was crashed my location was not known.
Thank you for BlindSquare one more time and thanks for fast feedback.
