    Hi all - I was wondering if anyone has come across this before.

    I have both Retinapad and The Times ipad app (the UK one) and I love both. However whenever Retinapad is installed on my 4.2.1 jb iPad, The Times app either won't open or crashes as soon as you read a story.

    If you uninstall Retinapad, The Times app suddenly works fine, but as soon as you install Retinapad again, The Times app dies once more.

    I've tried doing a clean restore, Times app works fine; jailbreak with Greenpois0n, Times app works fine; install Retinapad, Times app dies. There is nothing in the settings which can do anything, and the dev hasn't replied to my emails to him. Such a pity, as i love both apps, but it does seem to be you can have one or the other installed, but not both.

    Anyone any ideas?

    I can confirm this, same setup and the very same result. rpetrich, the author said in a tweet a while back that he won't be doing any more iPad tweaks as there are way too few buyers out there. Hence the lack of even a response from him

    Thanks for that WhatAmI.

    That's a shame that he's just going to leave it as broken - if he's choosing to not support it only a short while after release (and not even bother replying to emails from customers), I'll think twice about buying any of his apps/tweaks in future and I would suggest others do the same.

    Becoming more and more disillusioned with the jb scene.

    It was anyone else but Ryan Petrich I would have agreed but the guy is a quality legend and I'm sure he'll budge at some point and provide an updated

    I have my iPad jb with GreenPoison, 4.2.1, Times app & RetinaPad and everything works fine!

    I would not have thought RetinaPad should affect the Times app because it's a native iPad app not an iPhone one?

    I assume you have the latest version of GreenPoison? Don't know if this makes any difference or not but originally I had a tethered jailbreak using RedSnow which I then "upgraded" to untethered using GP.

    I'm hoping he changes his mind in time. iPad 2 looks to be a big seller, so maybe numbers will pick up enough to warrant development.

    Yes, i have the same situation. No response from author either. Sad. Only "The Times" (UK) seems effected.

    Happy to report the recent update to RetinaPad (1.1.2) fixes the problem with The Times app. Awesome!
