    Coffesnobs App Gone to Heaven?

    Iv'e just synced my iPhone to the latest IOS 11 update and shock, horror - the Coffesnobs app no longer works! I quite liked the quick fix on the run but now when I go there the cupboard is bare. You are greeted with a message saying "The developer of this app needs to update it to work with IOS 11."

    Not a life threatening situation and it won't taint what goes in my cup (my dodgy roasting determines that). However, is anyone out there aware of this being terminal or is it possible there may be some form of cyber resurrection? Can Javafile come to the rescue with "Apps I must have more Apps!"

    In the meantime the full website will more than suffice ....

    Ah really hehe, whenever I tried to use that app it didn't quite work properly... Try Tapatalk, I use it and although it has a few funny kinks, it works pretty well

    I didn't know it finally "broke".
    The gotcha with the Apple App was that they kept changing the goal posts and it required more and more development to stay working.
    I can't see us jumping their hurdles anytime soon as it's becoming a full-time job to keep it updated and I just don't have the time spare to get it working (sorry).

    The app was based on tapatalk code so maybe try theirs as they have the resources and the reason to keep it in the store.

    Thats what I do for my day job. There really is a never ending stream of work to keep an application up to date. Thats one of the reasons some people push for improvement of HTML interfaces for iPhone rather than dedicated apps. However, personally, in my opinion, apps will always win given the resources to maintain them.

    No worries. Thanks for clarifying that Andy. You would think it would be in Apple's interest to reduce or eliminate hurdles to promote the "mighty App Store."

    I have just updated to iOS11 and wish I hadn't. A large number of my apps have stopped working. Some, I will probably never miss (especially those that I can't even remember what they did) but some I WILL miss. I am still going through them one by one, in an attempt to figure out what all the broken ones are, do I need to just delete them, or go in search of a replacement? First, for the ones I did use, finding an email address to write to, to ask if they are working on a fix or not. (as one can no longer open the app, I have to Google every one of them, with varying success. The name of the app may or may not be the name of the company that made it)
    You can also no longer view apps on iTunes on the PC. Seemingly they are taking lessons from Microsoft, fixing things that ain't broke

    There was a lot of publicity about the deprecation of 32-bit apps and there was a screen added to the settings screen in iOS 10 to help people prepare for the apps no longer working in iOS 11.

    I don't know if this option carried over to iOS 11 as there are apps I will loose that work fine in iOS 10 that I don't want to give up just yet, so haven't taken the iOS 11 upgrade.

    Settings > General > About > Applications

    Here, it lists all the apps that will no longer work in iOS 11. It will list those apps at the top for which there is an update. For the others, if they still exist in the App Store you will be taken to the app page, if you press on the app name. If they no longer are in the App Store, you are basically SOL, as most likely the developer lost interest in them years ago. The App Store had a big purge of apps that are not actively updated on a regular basis, or where they have no response from the developer.

    If the app is no longer in the App Store, you may as well delete the app.

    It is not a question of fixing what ain't broke, but leaving behind the support for legacy 32-bit apps which slow down your phone/tablet so they can move on with pure 64-bit architecture.

    I missed out on the publicity before the upgrade as (coincidentally) I was having computer problems, had to reformat.
    The ain't broke comment was about the iTunes page on the PC
    When I finally managed to log into that again, I couldn't figure out what was going on. First thing that happened was that it decided to update itself to iOS11. I probably could/should have stopped that from happening, but I didn't realise it will cause a problem.
    After that, I couldn't find any of my usual pages. I couldn't find my apps (on the PC, I mean) I couldn't even find the Apps store. (I could find the store for music, but not the apps) Eventually I phoned them for help. The girl I got wasn't familiar with windows and was also getting all confused. Long story short, after she sought help up the line, I was eventually informed that iTunes will no longer show apps, nor the app store on the PC. Grrr
    I also discovered that my backup was ticked to be encrypted. As I am not that paranoid, I KNOW that I have never ticked that. When I went to untick it, it wanted a password, but wouldn't accept the only password I know. Nor does it offer to reset it for you. No idea what I'm going to do, when/if I need to restore a backup.
    I have since found that lots of people say that they never ticked that choice, but it is now ticked (just as many who don't believe them) so they are in the same boat as I am
