    It seems Apple have surprised us (again) with iOS 7 Beta 6. Given the very small size of the update, it appears to be simply a bug fix for iTunes in the Cloud. As such, it should really have been named iOS 7 Beta 5.1

    I've decided to keep using this thread until Beta 7 is out - unless we suddenly see a glut of new app failures under "Beta 6".


    Well the Beta 5 release took me a little by surprise, I'll admit. I'm hoping as we approach GM the list of failing apps will get smaller due to OS stability (although some will require compatibility updates and many will have UI updates).

    Anyway, following on from the previous threads, I've updated this post having checked all of my installed apps on iOS 7 Beta 5.

    I'll also update it as other forum members confirm any changes from issues reported under Beta 4 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

    Athlean-X - bizarrely it works if you turn airplane mode on. Once the app starts you can turn AP mode off again
    Google Translate FreeFax International

    Lost Game Save Data

    Skill Game
    Tap Tap 4

    Other Issues

    Asda - performing erratically, working for me, but reports of crashes from other forum members
    BBC GoodFood - sometimes hangs / crashes
    BBC iPlayer - Can't get any content to play, "This programme could not be played. Please try again later"
    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
    Find My Friends - not working properly from Beta 6 onward
    iCarRadio - won't connect to stations, comes up with Internal Server Error
    iTunes Store - app is crashing for me everytime I try to search
    Spinner Free - hangs at completion of a level
    Tap Tap Tour - crashes regularly
    Twitter - works but have to hold down bottom menu buttons to access
    Wild West Pinball - works fine until you get a high score and the keyboard doesn't appear to enter name
    Zynga Poker - now starts up fine, but it's signed me into some random guy's account called Nate


    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 5.

    I will remove those confirmed as working.

    Well this is a fairly unexpected fail if true - perhaps it's just my phone?

    iTunes Store app is crashing for me everytime I try to search. Gotta be a problem at my end surely?

    When you have a moment, could someone check please?

    The Facebook issue, that isn't iOS 7 related, it's the app itself and has been since iOS 5 or 6. They removed sounds apart from chat messages.

    Didn't know that, thanks. Never use chat messages myself so wouldn't know. Will remove it from the list.

    Yep. This is disappointing. I have to find a replacement for the time being. AP Mobile news still doesn't work either.

    ESPN ScoreCenter app and theScore are probably your best bet, they aren't as good though. I think I am just going to hold out. Hopefully problem is resolved before start of Football season. My Pirates are probably going to fold soon anyway, so don't need it for baseball :p

    I tried The Score, but it crashes at launch for me. I'm using CBS Sports right now. I think the Pirates are for real. I saw them play at Washington and went to their doubleheader against the Cards. Good times!

    Popcap changed the logic in their PVZ and PVZ2 games. Now is, if iOS <= 7B4, then exit, else Play!!! YESSSSS!!!!!! :D

    Both work flawlessly.

    Also Skype IM works as it should. No more crashes.

    Definitively Apple enabled some backward compatibility routines, not present in any other beta.

    I'm a happy camper ;)

    The Apple Store app has recently been updated to give away free apps, books etc every so often.

    The current offer (in the UK at least) is the game Color Zen.

    Anyway, redeem code integration from this app with the App Store wasn't working under Beta 4.

    It is in 5 - just downloaded the game.

    Athlean-X works if you turn airplane mode on. Once the app starts you can turn it off again.

    Find iPhone still crashes.

    Strangely, when I first launched it, it didn't exit, switched to 'Hybrid' and it crashes constantly now.

    As I and others have repeatedly said, there's a separate find my iPhone app especially for iOS 7 betas, or is that the one you are using?
