iPhone App Runs In Emulator But Not On Device (iPad)

Hi Guys,

I am writing an iPhone app using Titanium. I was impressed at how quickly I get something useful looking in the emulator. I now have enough functionality to start testing the app on a device.

I am using an iPad (3.2) to test my app on. The app works great in the emulator. I can compile it and install it on the iPad successfully. Unfortunately, when I launch it, it flashes up the splashscreen and then a blank black screen.

From there nothing happens, the app fails to load. It just sits there.

Can anyone give me any advice on what to look for?

The initial calls are just fire up 5 tabs and some table views.

  • I just noticed that even the startup splas screen animation doesn't complete before the blank screen appears.

  • For me the issue was I was using Titanium Redux and had forgotten to include the required controls in app.js.
