Android NewsBlur crashing

@andrei is working on a fix, thanks for sending the recording.

Not a problem! I got mine working again by removing and reinstalling…

The reports point to a possible issue within the package which is a dependency for the WebView on the device and it is external to NewsBlur.

I’ll post another update later today after more investigation.


@animaux1 @CanadianAlcyone Does this happen on the very first story that you’re opening since app start or only subsequent ones or both?

It seems to always be a subsequent one.

I have released 13.2.8 to beta testers with a potential improvement. Please let me know if it helps with the issue @animaux1 @CanadianAlcyone

Thank you @andrei, I installed the beta and will monitor over the next few days.

I did not install the beta, but did update when it was released. I still see occasional crashes. Maybe one yesterday and one the day before.

It will freeze/crash when I press on a title to open a story, then I have to completely exit out. Sometimes I have to wait until the “close app” android box comes up to get newsblur to close. Once I get it re-opened I can then go back to the same story and it will open ok.

@animaux1 Is Chrome your default browser? If so could you see if it does the same with a different default browser or the in app browser? Android App Crashing After Update - #9 by andrei

yes, chrome is the default browser on my phone.
I tried Chrome and the Samsung browser logging in thru the web site (instead of the app) and didn’t have any issues in the 10 minutes or so of opening story’s in each.

I did send in a couple of bug reports late last night.

I just now sent a 3rd bug report from my even older Samsung tablet (running android 7.1.1).

I sent another bug report last night…

I have a fix out for the beta users under version 13.2.11. If that goes well I’ll be releasing it to production under a new version

Nice! Thanks!

Gradual rollout started for 13.3.0

Version 13.3.0 is rolled out to all users.
