POS Crashing Constantly

New Member
3 0 0

I recently updated my iPad software and updated the Shopify App. Running on an iPad 3 or later. 

The POS crashes constantly. Pretty much after every button touch or when we go into a menu. I checked the memory on the iPad and there is more unused than used. We've closed the app and restarted, we've shut the iPad down and restarted. Pretty much everything short of deleting the app and re-downloading, which I'm hoping to avoid. 

Customers have been patient, but it's Friday in our coffee shop and it's normally our busiest day, traffic-wise. I can't have this crashing with every customer. 

Any tips or solutions would be greatly appreciated.
