I have the latest iOS and am still facing the problem of the app just freezing on me (on hitting return to save the photo). I tried rebooting the phone, reinstalling the app, etc. Still waiting for the support team to get back to me with a solution.

Hey all,
Will here, Ellusionist's app developer.

There have been a few reports of the Console app for iOS hanging/crashing when trying to save to the camera roll.
Despite our extensive internal testing (and trust me when I say this thing has been under test for a LONG time) we didn't pick this one up. There aren't any excuses, we should have. It's my fault and I apologise.

Now on to the good news: I've been working throughout the night on nailing down this bug and have managed to reproduce, diagnose and fix the problem. Thank you to everyone that submitted the report, in particular the person that sent us the screen recording - that helped immeasurably. For any technical folk that may be interested, the issue was a thread race condition and subsequent deadlock that didn't always occur - as any programmer that has worked with multithreaded applications will tell you, these types bugs are a complete (and common) pain.

When you first try to save a picture to the camera roll, Console creates an Album (called Console) within the Photos app. You may notice that you now have this empty album so if you do, feel free to delete it before the new update arrives.
(If you are reading this in the future, and saving to camera roll works as it should, don't delete that album. It's where all of the images get allocated so that the "Clear from Camera Roll" functionality works as intended)


A new build of the iOS app is currently on its way to the App Store and will be up soon. Apple's review process is considerably faster than it used to be so whilst we can't say exactly how long it'll be, it won't be too long.

This bug did not affect the ability of the app to print a physical picture to the Polaroid Zip printer.

Thanks

Will

After one purchases Console, is the full instructional video available or do we have to wait until July 10th? only reason I'm asking is that is the message I'm getting after watching the instructional video. But I'm assuming it's 100% user error on my part lol. I went into my account and then My Downloads.

There should be a full instructional video. You may have clicked on the trailer (?)

That's what I thought too, but I'm in "My Downloads" section under my acct. I'm still assuming user error lol. what's weird is that it's saying July 10th.

Ok, I called them and they said they wont release the video until it has shipped. Kinda weird considering that we know its a BT device. Id prefer not to wait but I guess I will!

Does seem a tad odd, but I guess it does make some sense.
I should be receiving my unit tomorrow, but the videos have been accessible for a few days now.
I really like what Im seeing so far.

I've only seen the full demo and it looks good. I'm just wondering what the smallest bt printer there is that will work with it. I hope someone is able to experiment and report back!

He covers all that in the video. Apparently only one (?) printer will work with it so far.
Im probably not going to use one. Seems strong as is.

I think it might be a lot for a beginner. Itll take some mindful practice imo.
Id say it falls into the same skill set as using a boon if that makes sense.
So....intermediate?

I'd agree with intermediate.
