I frequently use the iOS app on both an iPhone 5s and 6 plus, and find it convenient.

But there is one question that keeps crashing the app: Does Newton's third law apply to momentum or to forces?

Every time somebody comments and I want to see what happens, I find that the app quits. There must be some incompatibility - maybe the Q&A is too long, maybe there is some crazy markdown, maybe it's because there's a bonus attached...

I wonder if others find the same problem with this question. Initially it was OK but in the last couple of days not.

  • I haven't noticed it on any other question...

    No repro here, just loaded the question, all answers, and all comments using the app. Can you give direct link to one of the comments crashing your app? I have iPhone 4S (iOS 8.1.1) but doubt it matter. Dec 18, 2014 at 23:29
  • It (still) happens when I click this link (on my iPhone... posting this on a computer!) physics.stackexchange.com/posts/comments/320925?noredirect=1 . I wonder if there is some problem with a cache. Is there a way to flush it?

  • No crash for me, but it just keeps loading forever. Hmm... let's see if this link makes any difference Dec 19, 2014 at 0:15
  • Weird. Can you try clicking the link in my previous comment via the app? Works fine for me, while your link doesn't work. :/ Dec 19, 2014 at 0:16
  • I did - it crashed (not immediately: it takes a few seconds)

  • OK then, time to let the dev team handle it, out of ideas. (you did try to restart the iPhone device, did you? :)) Dec 19, 2014 at 0:17
  • Thanks for looking at this. Dev team - you know how to find me.

  • Taking a look at this... Dec 22, 2014 at 21:36
  • @Floris could you tell me what device and iOS version you are using to reproduce this? Dec 22, 2014 at 21:44
  • iPhone 6+ with 16G RAM and 8.1.1 ; it was also happening on a 5s with 7.1.2 and 64 G RAM but today that device won't even load the question when I click the link in the comment above...
