"Open In App" Button Does Not Work


Your username: Rawrbear

What kind of device are you using?: I am using an iPad Air 1.

1 sentence description of the problem (I was doing _________, and then __________ happened): I click on a link to a project, and when I would tap "open in app", the app itself would open, but the project would either take forever to load (it would take 10-20 seconds for the thumbnail of the project to appear on my screen), or it wouldn't load at all.

Steps to make the problem happen:

Click on an hssample:// link that would link to a project. (I tried to open @Periwinkle_Dolphin's Ultimate Drawing Pad through the browser. It's this project, and this was the hssample link:)


Then, the app would open, and nothing would happen, or it would load for a while, then show the project thumbnail.

I expected this to happen:

The project's thumbnail would open.

But instead this happened:

Nothing would happen; it would stay on the featured page.

Here’s a sweet screenshot:

Note: the top "OPEN" button works fine for me, it's just the "Open in app" button that doesn't work.

Does anyone else have this bug as well?


Hmmm... that doesn't seem to happen to me...
What version of iOS do you use? What version of hopscotch do you use?


It's most likely that you have to update the app.


I'm using normal iOS 10, with the latest version of Hopscotch, I'm pretty sure.


Check the App Store to check for any updates

The notification badge doesn't always show up on the app store


I'm using Self Service, an App Store that doesn't auto-update. I will try later, thanks. :)


It sometimes happen to me.
You have to wait for a while
Refresh the app


Try going back to the forum and clicking it again


Did that already a bunch of times.


Maybe close the webpage


I know this happned to me like right now!M


Just happened to me. Maybe it doesn't always work.


Why did it take you to that page anyway? It never takes me there.


Takes me there for me. Weird, isn't it?

It still doesn't bother me too much, though.


Thanks for reporting. Will take a look!


This is not part of the topic but I want to permanently delete a topic?


How do I do that?
I just sign in recently and some guys told me that my topic wasn't a hopscotch topic, so I need to delete it.


I have self service too!
What grade are you in?


I'm in eighth grade! ^^


Who was your seventh grade social studies teacher?
