We’re really not 100% positive about the hows and whys of it breaking, but in the just-released Camera+ 3.9, iCloud syncing broke. In any case, this quick update fixes it.

We apologize for any inconveniences and frustrations on your part. Now go and enjoy all the goodness that Camera+ 3.9(.1) brings…

iOS 5.1.1 holdouts: we just submitted a Camera+ fix that’ll get you up and running again. Please continue 1-starring it until it’s approved…

    We had the same prob. check after upload to apple in binary details if “archived-expanded-entitlements.xcent”file is present if not the result will be exactly your problem!

    After doing a diff on our problematic release and the current one, I found the following file is missing inside the “app” bundle: “archived-expanded-entitlements.xcent”

    hope this helps!

    The bug is already rported to apple!

    take care boys!

    Same here. 4S running iOS 5.1.1 (jailbroken). App won’t open.

    Just happened to me too. Won’t open at all so no access to earlier photos. Reboot on phone does not fix problem. No issues with normal iPhone camera app. Hope it can be fixed!

    Camera + does not load anymore. Iphone4S, ios 5.1.1

    iPhone 4, iOS 5.1.1. Same here. 3.9.1 Update crashes every time I try to launch it. Running the app from terminal through ssh returns this:

    dyld: Library not loaded: /System/Library/Frameworks/Social.framework/Social
    Referenced from: /private/var/mobile/Applications/…/
    Reason: image not found
    Trace/BPT trap: 5

    Social.framework is only available in iOS 6. Marking this framework as “optional” in the Target’s Build phases may fix this?

    Oh Good. I was afraid it was just my phone. Glad to see it’s not just me. Please fix soon. I love this app and still have Pix frozen in the app that I want.

    It’s fixed, we are just waiting for Apple to review the update. Hopefully it’ll get approved soon.

    Downloaded the update and now it crashes immediately. I have nearly 2 years of unsaved photos on it!!! Can I revert back phone to old version through iTunes? What now? Please send any kind of advice!

    Same problem here, won’t startup on iPhone 4 after update.

    On a side note: Who takes pictures for two years without backing them up?!

    My lightbox on my phone and iPad Mini have ceased syncing. I have 35 gigs free space in my iCloud account. I have turned the apps off and on, with no success. Very frustrating. Using 3.9.2 and 6.1.3 on both devices. No help from googling.

    Please help! I have 651 photos in my iPhone lightbox. I want to sync them with my iPad so I can delete them from my iPhone. I have both sync settings ON, but only 224 photos transferred, and I can’t seem to find a way to get the rest of them to sync. iPad too, I phone 6S, the latest version of camera plus. And more than 20 gigs of available space on the iPad. Thanks for your help!
