HERP Mobile App Not Working

Post by Rancorrye » October 19th, 2017, 2:14 pm

I just did the new iphone software update and now the HERP mobile app isn't working. I get an alert that says the app needs to be updated. Checked with a friend who said he's having the same problem. Anyone else having this issue?

I don't use the HERP phone app, but since I upgraded my iPhone with the latest software, it doesn't work with the GPS app in my phone anymore. I get the same warning that you're getting saying that the app needs to be upgraded. I imagine the new iPhone software is incompatible with a lot of older apps.

Computer companies call it 'upgrading'. I call it extortion!

Just repeat the mantra: "It's not a bug, it's a feature!" :lol:

The app still works on my Android device. Too bad the GPS hardware itself is lousy on this particular phone. Still, I'm trying to hold out at least another 6-12 months before getting a newer phone.

Well hopefully it gets updated. I was just getting back into the swing of things after not entering much for the past few years.

Are you using HERP Mobile, or Mobile Mapper? Mobile Mapper replaced HERP Mobile a long time ago.

Mobile Mapper was made to work with HerpMapper, NAHERP, and a few other projects, so I didn't have to maintain separate apps for each one.

Gotcha. Didn’t realize that. I’ll download that now.

Thanks,

Glad to hear you're getting back into collecting & uploading observation data, Rye. Also, your question will help me out too, since I did the iPhone software "extortion" but hadn't yet discovered the incompatibility "feature" w/ the old app. I will also install the new app. So thank you.

See you at the 2017 pickle party. Carpool?

cheers

Yes, I am planning on attending the pickle party. Carpooling would be great. I can drive this year, if you’d like.
