Hi,

First of all, congratulations for that greatt app. By far the best android CBR reader in my opinion !

Unfortunately, i'm experiencing lots of crashes on my Motorola Xoom ( yeah, the first one).
The crash is semi-random : it happens most of the times when sliding to the next page / to the next book, but is not related to the book itself : rebooting and sliding the same pages/books works flawlessly.

When crashing, the screen freezes on the current page : no response for any touch input. When turning off the screen, no way to power it on again and the tablet needs a hard reboot. That problem happens at almost every reading session, sometime twice in a 1-2h session. :blink:

I am currently under the 1.74.89, but the problem was already there since i bought the app (maybe 5-6 versions ago).

I know it would be hard to debug only with these infos, is there a way to access logs or anything that can help to delimit the problem ?

Thanks !

Yeah, I've had this on my Xoom too, maybe a dozen times in the last two months.. if I restart and go back to last read comic, it locks up again, only solution is to reboot, force stop and clear cache.

Yep,

Clearing the App Cache helped a lot : only one crash in 3 days. That's better than before, but the problem still happens from times to times.

Question : Are you syncing your comics via Wifi/USB, or just putting your CBRs/CBZs directly to your memory/SDCard ?

I personnaly sync via Wifi, and it seems that there is an "optimisation" process during the sync : maybe the optimization create errors in the comic that the app cannot handle ?

(Pure speculation)

Nah, always on wifi from a share on the pc, if I reboot, force close and clear cache the same comic reads all the way through fine. Its definitely the app, its got worse with the last three or so updates...

just wanted to let you know from my side (sorry, but I still don't see the crashes, about to update to today's new CRA version.

I sync wifi.
My files go to the internal space (I swap out SD cards to often and don't want to forget to wrong one on trips)
I have many smart and reading lists that I sync and each list does have the optimization checked on.
I also have a few list that I sync to my telephone and here they are one also.

I personally think that the "optimized" files load so much faster and the transitions are so much smoother.

I would say that I average about 12G of comics on my device all the time, Never know when I might travel and what I might want to read.

Thanks guys for your infos !

So we are all three using the exact same device, with the exact same version, using it (almost) the same way, but we encounter differents app behaviors... :blink:

And why is it only happening on the Moto Xoom ?
