A Word of Warning About iOS9 Beta’s – To all you pioneers!

Screen Shot 2015-07-10 at 8.44.26 PMThis is exactly why you should NOT do the iOS9 Beta when you have one iPad that you are relying on along with ONE app that is vital to your job! Beta testing is fun, adventurous and can also be disastrous! Same with upgrading even AFTER software and operating systems are released for real.

ForScore is in one of the app categories that I use every single day in every single one of my classes and lessons that I teach!

iOS9 beta tempts many of us with it’s shiny new tricks and since Apple released it as a public beta we tell ourselves, it can’t be THAT bad can it?

Well, case in point – install the iOS9 public beta and ForScore isn’t going to work AND it might not be fall until it does! Here is the word from ForScore’s news blog –

From ForScore about the iOS 9 Betas


An update to one of Apple’s support documents today suggests that a public beta of iOS 9 is coming soon. As with any iOS beta, we do not suggest installing prerelease builds on any device that you use to run forScore. This is especially true for iOS 9.

The three private beta versions of iOS 9 that Apple has released to developers so far have all exhibited an issue that makes forScore unusable. The issue is very clearly on Apple’s end, and the bug report that we filed has been marked as a duplicate (meaning that we’re not the first to report it and that Apple is definitely aware of the problem). Until this problem is fixed, forScore will frequently become unresponsive until the home button is pressed or double-pressed.

Rest assured that these problems will be fixed by the time iOS 9 is released this fall. In the mean time, please do not install any beta versions of iOS 9 unless you’re using a dedicated device or you don’t plan on using forScore until the fall (gasp!).”
