I just updated my iPad 2 to iOS 8. All my 24 HanDBase databases are behaving normally and the synchronization with my Windows 7 PC is also working nicely.

Dave, I know you're watching this forum for iOS8 bugs. The only thing I've found so far is that I get a lot of crashing after I do a 'Run Report' in the List View. Let me know if you haven't seen this and need more info.

Cheers, Alan.

A more serious issue, Dave. With the current App Store release and iOS8, if I try to enter data in a keyboard field on a form (generated with the forms designer) the form disappears and I just get the keyboard. Entry without a keyboard is OK (popups, dates, etc).

For the moment I would suggest anyone using the forms designer avoids iOS8.

Cheers, Alan.

I can confirm this problem. I'm attaching two screen shots of my iPad 2: the first one shows the form before an attempt to edit a text field. The other one shows the result when I tap on one of the text fields. After tapping "Cancel" the form and the contents of the record are untouched, so no permanent damage is done.

This is the second screen shot showing only the keyboard, the form is gone.

Hi there,

Thanks for your input everyone. I actually came across the scrolling issue on my end yesterday and did the work to fix the bug. The problem was due to the changes in the keyboard support in iOS8- by allowing keyboards of varying sizes, they changed how we get the height of the keyboard. It worked in the betas but apparently now in the release of iOS8 they flipped a switch to allow the third party keyboards and voila!

Very sorry about this- I am going to submit an update ASAP!

I've seen much bigger issues in other apps - one I use a lot gets stuck at data import and I have to force-quit. Yes, like Ulrich, thanks for the quick response!

Cheers, Alan.

Alan,

Was this when you are exiting the report or when going in? I think I found something that changed in this regard but it would mean that the crash could be happening on the back end- ie, after you see the report and hit the back button. Is that where you saw it?

Yes, Dave - its always after I've seen the report and have tapped 'Back'. It happens frequently, nearly every time in fact.

Cheers, Alan.
