After updating Deed Calls Pro to version 1.0.6 on his iPad Pro running iOS 11, a user wrote:

“A quick browse thru the job list and all looks well. I’ll do an edit on this job to make sure but I suspect it is functioning properly.

This is the Bluff City Tn. area along the Holston River 1775-1782. It was the frontier of Revolutionary War America. My 4th and 5th grandfathers and uncles owned a 5 of these plots. Thanks to you guys I got to walk in the steps last year. I got to stand on the river side and know those men had walked that same path 100 times. It was one of the great times of my life and couldn’t have done it without you guys. Maybe my grandkids will do the same one day. It’s more than an app. . . . . . This is only one of the Jobs. In other Jobs I’ve plotted the north side of the river to just south of Bristol and to the south as far as the Watagua River.”

iOS 11 compatibility and saving data files

“I have received a msg pop up on Deed Calls Pro that says it will no longer work with iOS 11. There are no updates. How will I be able to protect and save my 200 plots? Are you working on a solution? Time is very short.”

We have recompiled a number of our apps (including the Deed Calls Pro) to work with the 64-bit architecture. Please check for the app update at the App Store.

To save your data files to your PC or Mac, first connect your iPad Pro to your PC or Mac via iTunes. In iTunes select your iPad Pro device then go to the File Sharing section. Please see the file transfer details at the following link:

Copy ALL the files to your PC or Mac.

After the iOS 11 and app update, connect your iPad Pro to your PC or Mac via iTunes and copy the files from your PC or Mac to the Deed Calls Pro app.

iCMTGIS II closes after iOS 10 update on iPad mini

“I have a copy of iCMTGIS II, recently updated/last week, running iOS version 10.2.1 (14D27) on iPad mini/gen 2. With ‘gps on’ and upon tapping ‘Collect’ to collect data, the app closes and doesn’t allow data to be collected. The app remains open in the background, i.e. doesn’t close out, but upon selecting ‘Collect’ again, it repeats the same issue and will not allow data collection.”

We asked the user, “Have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling the iCMTGIS II app?”

The user replied, “the un-install/re-install worked. . . . thought of un-installing/re-installing but had never done that with an iOS app since it is a download from the app store, but now I know I can. thanks!”

It is possible that the iCMTGIS II app was still open when the user did the iOS upgrade. Before an iOS upgrade, it’s best to close out all running apps. You can do so by double-clicking the Home button then swiping up the displayed app screens.
