I've had crashes on a few apps, but it's never anything that I can repeat.

Unlike with the iOS 5 beta last year, most apps seem to work just fine with this beta. I have had the odd crash, but nothing I have been able to repeat.

My Kindle is working fine on my iPhone 4S with iOS6 running. I just accessed one of my books and it opened to the spot I left off and I was able to turn to other pages...

The only app I am having issues with is the "My Xbox Live" app. The minute I open that, it crashes immediately.

Went through a bunch of my games last night, and they all seem to be ok for the moment.

It's useful for two reasons:

1) Some people might update to iOS 6 and find that an app they really need doesn't work.

2) People can keep track of when/if these apps are updated to make them compatible.
1) this beta was meant for developers only so if its on a personal device and an app doesn't work that sounds like a personal problem to me, not an iOS 6 problem

2) why would developers update an app to work with a beta... let alone the FIRST beta

EDIT: op needs to at least put BETA 1 in the title

Why not? That's what betas are for. To make sure your apps work okay. They're for more than just giving forum members a reason to complain...

Twittelator Neue doesn't work.

Yes, and they aren't supposed to talk about the beta outside of the Apple Discussion Forums.

The fact is that people ignore a lot of the rules and guidelines about iOS betas so that they can get an early preview.

2) why would developers update an app to work with a beta... let alone the FIRST beta
That's the sole reason that Apple releases the beta to developers - it's so that they can update their apps to ensure that they work on the new OS and to make use of new features provided by the OS.

Even the first beta should have the vast majority of new APIs implemented.

First iOS 6 is not even released yet. The beta should not be used to judge which apps will work when it is released. Don't you think the developers will make sure their apps work by then?

Second the purpose of these builds are to make sure developers have their own apps prepared for the release, not so the average end user can torrent the OS and play with it before it is released. It is not fair to judge apps that don't work based on a beta OS. Trust me developers know if their apps work.


This thread would be more appropriate after the release as a reminder to those developers who need to fix their apps. Not before it is released. Assume no apps will work during the beta and you will be a much happier person.

In what way is any of what I said incompatible with your two points?

Because people are judging apps based on a beta OS. There might be as much as 5 betas until GM. Developers can't even submit apps based on anything in iOS 6. Bitching because an app does not work will fall on deaf ears until it is released.

As much as 5? iOS5 had 9 before GM if I remember correctly.

The grounds for the OS is there. If it works with Beta1, it'll work with Beta 20. I wouldn't get on a forum and complain too much until you fully comprehend how things work. You're not painting yourself in the best light...

I'm not complaining. My point is developers won't put much effort into fixing an app that does not work in a beta. Form a list of apps that don't work AFTER the OS is released is my point. Simple.

Developers get these betas to fix their Apps before iOS 6 gets released to the public, that's the whole purpose. People won't be happy if they update to iOS 6 the day it comes out and then have tp wait another 1-3 weeks for developers to actually do something about the incompatibility they could have fixed 1-3 weeks after Beta 1.

As a nice side effect, people using iOS betas on their primary device (for reasons not to be judged by you), aren't completely screwed over if an important App turns out to be incompatible with iOS 6.

Yes, I understand that. I guess I am not making my point clear. Developers know if their apps work on iOS 6 already. They installed it from the developer center and tested their own apps. Now if it does not work they are currently working to make sure it is ready for launch. There is no need to list those that work and those that don't.

I'm just saying there is no reason to wait until launch. If you time this in a bad manner, Apple won't be able to verify all Apps submitted one day before launch on time and people end up with non-working Apps on the iOS 6 release day. I'm not talking about the integration of iOS 6 features, but solely about compatibility. If it's ready, release it. I guess the only reason they wouldn't is that they don't feel the obligation to provide support to beta users, because betas are not meant for the broader public. Guess what, even some developers have to use iOS 6 betas on their primary device because they don't have the money to buy an extra iPhone/iPad. So yeah, if you ask me, there should be updates for beta users when necessary.

They might, and not announce that it is compatible with iOS 6. But if their apps need or use anything in iOS 6, they can't even submit to Apple yet.
That is why developers hate the general public having access to early builds and leaving negative feedback on iTunes like this app suck it crashes on launch, without mentioning they are using a beta of iOS 6.
I understand, I am using it on my primary device, but I know enough not to complain if an app does not work.
