Cure for crashing FourSquare and RunKeeper on iPhone

Few weeks ago, first Foursquare application and then my favorite RunKeeper app started to fail. The symptoms were simple:

1) attempt to start

2) wait for for 2-10 seconds

3) exit

Analysis of the crash logs did not reveal anything obvious (see ~/Library/Logs/CrashReporter/MobileDevice/NAME:


Process:         foursquare [374]
Path:            /var/mobile/Applications/7F37347B-......1663AA5/foursquare.app/foursquare

What helped was to delete both applications from the phone, including data and let the iTunes install it back. No data is lost, because both services are cloud based – only minor inconvenience was to re-enter login information.

So, Nael – I am back in the game and cannot wait to claim back mayorships for all places I have been ousted 🙂
