The version 2 is great, thanks for the update! Unfortunately it crashed occasionally. This probably a bug with the app itself apart from the 2.1 firmware. Previous version would run smooth after I updated to firmware 2.1 and ever since I updated the app to version 2, when I tried to go to other book or chapter and verse, sometimes it crashed unexpectedly. And this morning would rather strange, I wanted to read a book in Romans in particular verse and it jump to Genesis instead and about some seconds it closes down back to the home screen. Btw, I already reset and reboot the iPhone after the installation and this didn't do the trick much to me. Thanks.. next fix will be highly anticipated :)

Thanks for reporting this.  The "jump to Genesis" usually happens when you switch from one volume to another, and the new volume doesn't contain the reference you were last on.  For example, if you're browsing Romans 5:8, then jump to a commentary that doesn't have an entry for Romans 5:8, it gets confused, and just jumps to Genesis 1:1.  In the next version we'll try to at least get you as close to Romans 5:8 as possible.

We'd like more information on the crashes, though, if you can get it.  Can you duplicate a series of steps that will cause a crash, or is it random?  If so, please let us know.  Thanks so much!

I would say the crash seems to be random after several attempt of steps that might cause a crash. By any chance, I tried to reboot the iPhone and it fixed the crash. I'm afraid after long hours of usage it may crash again as I did experience beforehand. Currently I no longer experience the jump to Genesis or any crashes that I've encountered before. However, if I found one, will try to take note and post it again.. Cheers!

I've experienced the same problem.  No crash with version 1.0 on firmware 2.0.2, but since upgrading to iPhone firmware 2.1 and Mantis 2.0.0, I've also experience 2 to 3 crashes.  The crashes seem random, but like you, I will also try to look out for a particular trigger sequence.

I am using firmware 2.1 and Mantis 2.0.0.

I frequently get crashes when I first load Mantis; sometimes 2 or 3 in a row.
What happens is the program will briefly appear on the screen, and then it will shut down and I am back at the iPhone home screen.

Once it starts,  it seems to "settle down" and run crash free.

If I do a reset before starting Mantis, I never get a crash.
Maybe it is memory related.
