ReadMoreApple's latest iOS Beta, iOS 11 was made available to developers two weeks back and with it comes notice that 32-bit apps will no longer launch when that version is launched later this year.

CamerAlert is currently 32-bit but we are working to re-compile the app as a 64-bit package in readiness. We'll also resolve the black borders and a few other bugs whilst we're at it and the plan is that once that's done and available we can then work in earnest on the ground up re-write. The Android platform will also get some attention, we're aware that there are issues with some new Android phones.
