I can no longer follow links or watch videos within the TA iphone app.

For the last, oh... about two weeks, every time I attempt to follow a link or (more importantly) watch a video in the TA app I've gotten a crash to springboard. It worked fine up until...well, until it stopped working.

Upon relaunching the app, I'm asked if I want to send a crash report; I have. Could the Safari setting "open in background"; "open in new page" have an affect?

Iphone 4S 16 gb ios 5.1.1.

Are you on a jailbroken phone? We had some crashing complaints on jailbroken phones.

I'm not jail broken and the app keeps crashing for me after clicking on links.

Sometimes it will work fine though. (very rarely)

It happens to me too. Apparently, links to the appstore only work when I'm connected to the US store, otherwise the app crashes. Not 100% sure about that though, since I got crashes with youtube links too.

I'm using an iPad 3, not jb, running iOS 5.1.

Co-sign the Op's issues. I am jail broken and have been using the app since it came out but the last version was the first version to have this crashing problem when you click links.

I thought maybe the issue would be fixed in this most recent update but the problem persists.

The same is happening for me on my iPad. Not jailbroken, but still on iOS 5.
