    Following on from the previous threads, I have updated this post having checked all of my installed apps on iOS 7 Beta 4.

    I'll also update it once other forum members confirm any changes from issues reported under Beta 3 on apps I don't have.

    I'm using an iPhone 4S 64GB and the apps that I have personally noticed with problems so far, in alphabetical order, include:

    Startup Crash / Hang

    Google Translate
    Mirrors Edge (might be something to do with ad message that pops up for Real Racing 3)
    Need For Speed Shift 2 (might be something to do with ad message that pops up for Real Racing 3) FreeFax International

    Lost Game Save Data

    Skill Game
    Tap Tap 4

    Other Issues

    BBC GoodFood - sometimes hangs / crashes
    BBC iPlayer - Can't get any content to play, "This programme could not be played. Please try again later"
    Card Studio - hangs on selection of card with Loading popup not disappearing
    eBay - works on iPhone, but title text in listings is squashed and it's difficult to open multiple photos in listings. You have to double click the '1 of 3' box and it's not very sensitive. iPad version apparently crashing
    Flight Control - Pause Button unresponsive
    Football on TV - Add to calendar now crashes
    iCarRadio - won't connect to stations, comes up with Internal Server Errror
    iMediaShare - seems to hang, but you have to close and reopen the app and it's ok
    Skype - overall works ok, but crashes when opening recents list and messaging
    Spinner Free - hangs at completion of a level
    Tap Tap Tour - crashes regularly
    TED - GUI now fixed, but videos are only audio with a blank screen
    Twitter - works but have to hold down bottom menu buttons to access
    YouTube - seems to work except for the "share" options. When clicked, nothing happens.


    The Apps below had issues reported by other forum members in previous Betas - it'd be great if we could confirm whether these now work with Beta 4.

    I will remove those confirmed as working.

    Spotify crashes when adjusting volume in beta 4.

    Spotify pushed an update and fixed the bug.

    Seems fine - connected right away. (However, mine worked with Beta 3 - it took awhile to connect, but eventually did.)

    MyFitnessPal and Audible are still blorked.

    I've tried eBay and updated the first post.

    It appears to be working the same as Beta 3, a couple of minor glitches but no significant problems.

    EDIT - I've now tested the apps on my device that I'd previously had issues with. It's a mixed bag.

    BBC GoodFood - appears stable again
    Need For Speed Shift 2 - now crashes just after startup
    Football on TV - calendar integration working once more
    Tap Tap Tour- now crashes regularly.

    Lastpass still not working. Can't launch sites from the app as it just crashes. Sometimes you can copy password other times it crashes.

    eBay seems ok

    Bear in mind that app failures are down to the dev and not Apple.

    Twitter pretty much works but you have to hold the button down to get it to move from timeline to interactions etc... Usually you just tap it. Kind of Strnage but at least it still works.

    I assume so.
    When I first put ios7 beta 3 on my iPad, PvZ instantly crashed.

    One of the reasons I reverted back to iOS 6 on my 3rd gen iPad.

    I can't live without PvZ on there.
    I enjoy even more then PvZ2!


    I understand that. But you can hope that the issue is some weird bug in the OS that gets patched on the back end.

    Unfortunately, PopCap doesn't care. They still haven't updated for the iPhone 5 screen, almost a year later.

    So... I hate to be the guy publicly saying that Grindr is working for him... but ummm... no problem here with Beta 4. Now let me put my trenchcoat back on ;-)

    Skype took forever to add support for the iPhone 5 's screen, so I'm not.

    They want you to update to PvZ 2 (when it's out everywhere.)

    It's up to Skype to fix it's app, none of Apple's concern.
