Finally, got tired of the fragmented mobile market and decided to learn IONIC. In a month, here is my first app and it was a great learning experience.

Phonegap collaborator cannot install IOS app (app rolls back after partial install)

June 4, 2012 1 comment

The problem: You used Phonegap build to build your app and it is working great on your iPhone. You are super excited and you email your friend/collaborator/tester the QR code to download the app. But the app doesn’t install on his phone. At first it appears that the app is installing but right about 70% through the install it rolls back itself.

The solution: I struggled for hours with this. And since I am an IOS developer, I knew this was something to do with the provisioning profile (since I had experience similar issues with in the past). I remembered that with testflightapp, all I had to do was make sure I login to Apple developer portal–> go to provisioning profiles and make sure my friend’s device ID was added to the ADHOC provisioning profile. In this particular case he was very much there but was still facing issues. In the end I realized, that Phonegap docs say that you should upload your developer cert and developer provisioning profile to Phonegap to share the app with others. Once I did this it worked like a charm. (Make sure your friend’s device ID is added to the developer provisioning profile though)

Solved : iPhone / IOS app stuck at loading state

June 14, 2011 1 comment

The Problem :

This is the 3rd time this has happened to me. Navigon, a GPS app which is huuuge (1.64 GB huge) in size gets stuck at loading status when downloading an update. Since the app takes 30 minutes to download, what happens is if I start the download and before it completes I move out of my wifi zone, it gets stuck at loading… This is what I have tried so far and failed miserably :

Failed Attempts (These have apparently worked for others, so feel free to try them if you want):

Rebooting the phone/Full Reset –>Keep the power button and Home Button pressed until you see the Apple Logo then let go = FAIL !
Paused the app download and Started it again = FAIL !
Opened Appstore and signed out of my Apple account, Signed back in to see if that helps = FAIL !
Pressed the Navigon icon long enough so that it starts dancing and attempt to delete it = FAIL !
Connected to my iMac and attempt to sync with ITunes = FAIL !

Solution :

After trying all of the above, what finally worked for me is this :

FIX 1:

  • Connect iPhone to your computer (Mac/PC)
  • In iTunes on your computer, uncheck the culprit application
  • Click Sync button
  • After sync is finished, you will notice that although iTunes on your computer thinks the app is gone, it will still show in stuck stage on your iPhone. Don’t worry coz the next step will fix this !!
  • Now check the app again in iTunes and sync again
  • Voila!!! It will get fixed. Phew !!!

FIX 2:

This one is weird and I came across it in a forum and didn’t believe it would work initially. But guess what? It works!

  • All you need to do is Settings->General->International->Languages–>Change to British English
  • This will cause the Springboard to soft reset and the stuck apps will automatically resume and download themselves!
  • You can now change the language back to US English or whatever (I am in U.S)
