We are aware that Magnetic Billiards: Blueprint for iOS has started to crash when entering any game mode, or the shop, from the main menu.

This problem started happening from the morning of 21st June, and as far we can tell is due to a problem with Apple's In-App-Purchase system, which the game checks when entering each game mode.

Several other developers are reporting the same problem, and we hope that Apple fix the problem very soon.

In the meantime, as a workaround, switching the device into Airplane mode, or turning In-App-Purchases off (Settings > General > Restrictions > In-App Purchases = OFF) will allow the game to run OK.

We apologise for the inconvenience this is causing.

We'll update this blog if there's any progress or the issue gets fixed.

EDIT - Apple have admitted to the problem on their developer message boards, and say they are working on a resolution now.

EDIT - Apple have fixed it now. Yay!
